Hope everyone is ready for another great week!  I myself couldn't be happier that it is Friday!  I've been helping out in the offices where I work for 2 weeks now and I've managed to pick up one of those nagging headaches... you know the kind that won't let go no matter what you do... but it is Friday and a little rest and relaxation should take care of it!  I've got another layout to share with you all today.  There was a challenge at Flying Unicorn where we had to create a sketch and then come up with a layout from it!  Well I will be the first to admit that my drawing abilities are a little lacking but I had fun doing it anyways so I thought I would share it here...  Please don't laugh... Well you can giggle a bit if you must!

Well you get the idea of what I was going for anyways... Here is what I did.

I have also found some inspiration fro this page around blogland and so I'm submitting this to Cheery Lynn Designs Challenges, they are having a shades of Purple challenge this week!  See the gorgeous doilies behind the photo!  That is theres and it is gorgeous and it cuts like a dream!  I was so impressed with there dies!  Wow!!  I'm also playing along again with DYSU challenge, they are having a use a flower challenge!  Love that!!
