A Very Scrappy Wednesday


Hope you are all off to a great start to the week!

My week woke to an alarming start yesterday when I slept through my alarm again. For those of you that have never slept in a room with me (which would be most of you I presume?) I sleep like a rock. Or a baby--choose your analogy. I've slept through fire drills, tornado alarms, and various ruckuses of many kind. I even have conversations in my sleep and then have no memory of them later. Which is great fun for my husband.

So all things considered, it's no surprise that my body decided to take matters in its own hands and get some sleep. The result being that I woke up today to no less than three alarms, one of which was the sound of a tweeting bird. Fairly annoying, but at least I didn't have to get dressed and make the train in 20 minutes!

Onto what you came for (other than an oration on my sleep patters, of course)--here's some scrappy goodness.

My layout for this week's Sketchy Thursdays challenge:

For these photos of one of my best friend's wedding, I focused on the location, since it was the first wedding in my hometown synagogue's new building. Which is gorgeous!

I am in love with these AC thickers (newly purchased) and was excited to use them! I also spritzed some white Mr. Huey to add some spunk.

Here's the sketch I used:

I opted out of the patterned paper and changed the brackets to Elle's Studio journaling cards, but you can see the bones of the layout here.

Which is why I love sketches--when you're having a hard time planning the bones of the layout, they wake it right up. Come play with us at Sketchy Thursdays sometime! We personally visit each and every blog that enters and I so enjoy finding new blogs that way!

Do you use sketches? What do YOU use to get your mojo going?

And, just for kicks, are you a heavy or light sleeper?

P.S.--For you light sleepers out there, check out Ella Publishing's 12 Days of Christmas posts when you're woken up!

  6. LOL! I set three alarms, too. I have had to resort to using my iPhone as one of those alarms and it seems to work the best. Glad you have more than 20 minutes to make the train! As always, your layout is fabulous!

  14. I am a terribly heavy sleeper, and Matt says I do the same sleep-conversation thing (which apparently is endless amusement, though I have no memory of it!) The last time I overslept in a terrible way was when I was student teaching--an hour away--and woke up at 8:45. (I usually left the house at 7:00!!!) I had accidentally mixed up the am/pm on my alarm... it's a great stress in my life that I will oversleep for something important : )

  19. Oh I love how you used the sketch! That is a great sketch too.. gonna have to use it.
    As far as sleeping - I am a heavy sleeper too. I can sleep through anything. Thankfully, my body is pretty in tune to it's inner clock and I always wake up at the same time. Annoying on the weekends but I can fall back asleep pretty easily.

  25. I love your layout! I had to laugh at your alarm clock dealio but I had to laugh even harder because I talk in my sleep too, full conversations with D I cannot ever remember having! LOL.

    I love sketches, LOVE them! :)
    And I used to be a very light sleeper. Very light. But the older I get, and if D is here then I am a deep sleeper. But I can wake up with one alarm and be okay.
