Fall-To Layout #212

Sick: Ugh, not a good week health wise.  Been feeling a little under the weather lately with a cold.  It's times like these that I'm very thankful that my boss is understanding (she's getting over a cold as well) and the organization has the technology to allow us to work from home easily. 

Shopping: Unfortunately, with being sick, all my crafting mojo has gone out the window.  I didn't feel like working on my craft show inventory or any cards for the sake of creativity.  However, today, we're back to normal.  I even went to Michaels after work today to see what kind of 12 x 12 paper packs they had since they were on sale for $11.99.  While some other goodies were on sale (stamps, ink pads, open stock paper, dies), I came away with 2 huge paper packs - Recollections Bright and Basic and Recollections Mosaic Memories (this paper looks like My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose- and a thing of kraft cardstock.  The Recollections paper works really well for folding origami dresses.  My goal was to find a Bright and Basic back so I dug through the shelves.  The first time around, I came up with nothing.  I even gave up and walking around to the other stacks, but then I came back and physically got on the floor to have easier access to the bottom shelf.  Success!  I must have gotten the last stack!  I noticed that there was a Recollections Christmas stack, but I didn't feel like I HAD to have it.  I had some extra money on my gift card and my total for the three items came out to $22.00 even.  Funny, huh?

Food: I made a batch of chicken marsala this afternoon.  I redeemed myself because the last time I made it, OMG, the chicken was so dry.  Yuck.

Card: Here's my non-craft show inventory related card.  I broke into a My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 paper's the last one of the four that I bought at TJMaxx recently that I hadn't opened yet.  I used Fall-To Layout #212 as a reference.
