Scrappy...Friday?

I'm back with my latest (and last as a DT) Sketchy Thursdays layout. As you can see, I'm having lots of fun playing with all of the photos I took in Disney. For this layout, I used the Mossy Knoll add-on from Studio Calico's Into the Woods kit. At first, I was kicking myself for not buying Babbling Brook instead, but I actually love the colors in this add-on and I'm very pleased with my choice:)

In other words, this week has continued to be a little rough--when it rains, it pours right? We had a little financial reality check that was sobering and hard, and put our thoughts of potentially buying a house on hold. I know we're making the right decision, but it's not easy. What can I say? Growing up is hard to do.

So my weekend plan is to drown my sorrows in the olive chicken, carrot soup, and peanut butter chocolate chip muffins I'm cooking. And I know this next week will be much brighter.

Now for some uplifting content--what was the highlight of YOUR week?

  24. Beautiful clean layout Keshet - hope you have enjoyed your weekend - we had to wait five years when we were forced to emigrate from Zimbabwe to South Africa - it was hard but it was a good lesson in gratitude - now that we are in our new home we really appreciate it. Hang in there - your time will come ;)

  25. Such a lovely page. Sorry about the house--D and I will probably have to wait a few more years to upsize, which means our boys will probably outgrow the house. I think it was Mother Teresa who said, "I know God won't give me anything I can't handle. I just wish he didn't trust me so much."
