i'm sleepy

Last night was horrible.

Let's just say I'm used to sleeping without the back door being opened about 343 times during the night.

Let's also say I'm used to sleeping without 10 intoxicated 20-somethings outside, and in the bathroom across the hall, and in the kitchen.

Let's also say I'm used to sleeping without dogs barking at said persons.

Let's just say I'm old and cranky and I think "kids" should be taught respect and consideration.

So, at 4:00am, after 2 hours of partying, I marched outside and asked how long the party would be lasting so I'd know how long I'd be laying in bed awake, getting hungry, and fuming on the inside. The question was met by a thousand apologies and another 2 hours of partying, and door opening, toilet-flushing and barking. And at 6:05, my 4-year-old cousin woke up and the noise resumed. I welcomed that noise.

Now that my rant is over, here are my sneaks. This is your prize for listening to my complaints.


All items are from the STREET FAIR add-on + Bronze & Blue Raspberry Mists. The bronze just meshes with this add-on so so so well. I used "Going Gray" Stampin' Up! ink on the pumpkins.

All items from the main kit, MARKETPLACE, well except for the thread.


Again, all items from the main kit. I loved how this layout turned out.


All items from the BAZAAR kit. Do I spy wood veneer? Why, yes I do. Love that stuff!

Items from the main kit + Carter Stamps + 1 flower from the BAZAAR add-on. I used brown mist there, but I really wish I had used bronze. I also used "Going Gray" ink by Stampin' Up!


This ended up being my favorite layout. I love the photo on this layout and I loved how it turned out. Can't wait to show you the whole thing.
