All She Wants to Do is Scrap...

I've been singing "All She wants to do is Scrap" lately (to the tune of Don Henly's "All She Wants to Do is Dance"); cuz seriously that's how I've been feeling! It's crazy! Ever since I made my project list I feel like I just can't stop scrapping! LOL. I'm sure it will wear off at some point, but for now I'm just enjoying it.

I finished my "N is for Now" page, just in time, because tomorrow the "O" prompt goes live! For this one, I just decided to capture the everyday "now" of my life. I had these prompts from an article on journaling by Ali Edwards, and I thought it was the perfect time to use them...
It's probably pretty difficult to read the journaling on the page, so here it is:

Now outside my window: the sun is shining, the wind is blowing and it's 81 degrees. I am wearing: yoga pants, a sweatshirt that says "we are one" & my orange polkadot readers. I am thankful for: Sundays with nothing on the agenda. I am creating: every day, and it feels great. I am reading: "Life is a Verb" by Patti Digh, "Wide Open" by Randi Feuerhelm-Watts & all my daily blogs and forums. I am hearing: the soft whir of my emac in an otherwise silent room. I am seeing: lots of little bits of paper all over the scraproom floor, Willie looking out the window & Johnny is chewing on a plastic patterned paper sleeve. It's another wonderful Sunday.

I can finally share my Scrapping The Music layout for the week too. The song is the Mary Tyler Moore theme, which is one that is close to my heart, because, not only did I grow up with that show, but her character lives in Minneapolis, and the whole concept of starting over all alone rings true for me too. In fact, when I started over and bought my own condo, the famous Mary Tyler Moore house was right in my neighborhood. Anyways, here's how my layout turned out... (click on the photo to enlarge it)

The journaling reads:
It was April of 2005. My divorce was behind me. I had new friends, an awesome new condo in the heart of Minneapolis, and my buddies Johnny and Willie by my side. I knew, finally, that everything was going to turn out great.

Come on over and play along - it's such a fun song to scrap!

I will be back tomorrow with a Project 365 update. Thanks so much for stopping by!

LOL! I have the MTM theme on my playlist on my blog. There is a story behind in on a post I did a few days ago.

I love your new song - I am sure I can do a layout about my DD as all she wants to do is dance, too.
