finding mojo...

Anyone know where my mojo went?
Seriously, I'm just so out of it right now. I think it comes from sleeping again, lol. For so long I didn't sleep well and I tried everything to get some sleep. So after my surgery I was in my room at 3am with my roommate, who had her hip replaced and was in agony. There was way too much light, consquently I asked if there was anything they could give me to help me sleep. Even on heavy pain medication after back surgury, I wasn't going to sleep, lol. The doctor gave me some meds and I actually slept for 4 hours! When I was released I asked if I could get a script, explaining how little I've slept in the last 6-8 years and everything I've tried to help it. So the Dr. gave me the script and I've kept taking it. It really does help me sleep. I'm actually getting about 6-7 hours of sleep a night, but I found it affects my ability to be creative, lol. My dh doesn't believe me when I say: there is absoultely NOTHING in my head! lol. When I try to create kits, quick pages, etc nothing is happening! So I'm trying a different approach. I'm going back to doing layouts for my dd's. Maybe while I'm creating the layouts, I'll need to create paper or elements for them and that will lead to freebies or kits, lol. It can't hurt anyway, I'm so far behind, lol.

So today I did 2 cover layouts for my dd's "yearbook".
I can't decide which one I like best
My daughter took this photo herself (I'm so proud of her!!)

I used papers and elements from Digi By Design's monthly team kit Tickets Pleaseas well as a few other papers and elements (see full description here)

Thanks for stopping by

ps. I just got an idea for a freebie, if you get a chance check back in a bit. I'll see if I can pull it together.

Hi everyone!
I hope you all had a great halloween! Here in Michigan, it was cold and then began to rain, right in the middle of Trick or Treating! No Surprise there. We could have 60-70 degree temps all week and it would still be cruddy and nasty on Halloween! lol.
Anyway, I've just been in a huge slump and I can't seem to crawl out of it! So today I'm approaching it in a slightly different way.
I used 2 of my kits to create a layout for my dd and saved it as a QP to share. Actually there are 2.
Here's Jessica in her halloween costume.
I liked the simple look of this first one

Journaling reads:
I really wanted some "good" photo's of you in
your halloween costume. But in Michigan
it's impossible to plan for this occasion.
The weather rarely cooperates!
This year was no different. As we left the house,
it was still light enough for a photo, thanks to the change
in daylight savings. But that still wasn't good enough. It was too
cold to go out without your coat and mitten. To top it off, about
30 minutes after we started, it started to rain.
Can't take pictures in the rain. So this was my best shot. Here you are
as your favorite character "Cinderella". Hope you remember
your halloweeens fondly, despite the weather.
~ I Love You,

but I kept thinking it needed something.

Since I love to mix kits (I'm never happy with just one) I ended up using paper and a new element from my Witches Den kit and a graphic element from my Trick or Treats kit.

In case your wondering, these kits are not in the store right now. They were part of the Digi by Designs Mid Month Madness, I wanted to add more to them and put them back in the store as full kits, but my creativity has failed me. If anyone is really interested it getting one or both, just let me know by emailing me at and I'll see what I can do.
