Isn't inspiration a strange thing...

... every now and then I plan on scrapping a whole evening just for fun, just for me. Make sure I won't get distracted, kids in bed, husband in front of the t.v. or working, what could go wrong?
And guess what? More then once I found myself sitting at my table staring at my papers and pictures and goodies like I've never seen something like that before and with no clue what to use them for *LOL* I have all the right circumstances and less then NO inspiration, aaarrrggghhhh!
On other evenings I don't really plan to do any scrapping at all. Like yesterday. I was just going through the boxes Kars has send me for the demonstration in february. Just looking what was there and how I might wanna use it... And guess what? Before I knew it I had two LO's ready and much more in my head. I was really sorry to see that it had gone so late already and it was really time to go to bed. Getting up in the moring is difficult enough as it is already, going to bed too late makes it even worse. Bad thing is, when I go to bed in the middle of a scrapping mood, I can't sleep. So it took a long long time for me to actually fall asleep. Maybe next time I just stay up and scrap??? And maybe just go to bed on evenings I actually planned to scrap, haha.

So here's the result of my "not-planned-to-scrap" evening :)





Almost everything is from K&Co. except for the flower and brads by MM, oh and the brackets, they're from BG but covered with K&Co. paper.

Oh, and let's not forget the words :):

cardstock, minibook, design team, memories

Hope you all have a little more luck then the past few days :)

I'm off to crop now,
See you tomorrow!

Birgit

ooooh I wish I could see that, see I spend more time on lots of admin than working on the ideas in my head. I am working on a little journal to put all my ideas in so I won't forget ... now to have the time to work on it.
Love the lo's you did, you should have stayed up haha

I think we all have the same disease, not sleeping when you have scrapping ideas. I also scrap at night, DH behind the TV, son in bed. Sometimes I just want to finish things and it's getting later and later. And in the morning mwoeh, tired.
Bingo is also not my lucky game, 1 more word 6 to go...
