Playing Catch-up and a Start to a Crazy Week

Okay so after I did my post from Saturday morning I closed up my computer went about my day, did alot of fun scrapbooking.  Even spent the day with my mom, my daughter and good friend Judy to do some machine stitching on paper.  Came home with a sewing machine all for me so I can sew on my stuff whenever I want and then finished a beautiful layout, took pictures, sat down.  Opened the laptop and starting FREAKING OUT!!!

It kept shutting down, restarting and shutting down.  Can you believe it, I was going crazy.  So needless to say it is now with the Geek Squad at Best Buy for a couple of days and I'm sitting here at my daughters ancient desk top trying to figure out how to do stuff all over again.

Anyways - I realized that I forgot to post SYAO week 5 here on my blog - yes I got it done and posted to Paper Secrets but I forgot to show it here for everyone so here it is.  Again same situation they give you a layout and you pick 4 embellishments and 1 technique.  I don't have the sketch saved here because of course - it's on my laptop!!  Hehe - deep breaths but I'm sure you'll enjoy the layouts and you can always take a peek over on Paper Secrets Forum.

Here's a little close up - this one used bling, paper punches, photo corners and rub-ons and the technique was distressing.
 I would have resized this for you but photoshop is ON MY LAPTOP!!   (deep breaths)
 And here is week 6 - SYOA - I love, love the way this one turned out.  I was actually trying a layout that I was shown from Amarilys's Scrappy Corner but I took it and used the layout sketch from our challenge keeping her background circle which was punched with a corner punch and then stitched by machine to the background paper.  I really love it.
 Embellishments were bling, flowers, trim and 3 different patterned papers and of course the technique was stitching.
 My little Madie was so cute in these pictures, she is growing up way to fast.
Well hope you enjoyed.  Next time I hope to have my laptop back and not so much stress involved.

Happy Stamping!
