Fall To Layout #82 & SPCC #38

Well I've tried to be productive on my day off before having to work this weekend but I haven't accomplished very much at all! I set my alarm to wake up at 8 AM and of course I managed to snooze and wake up at 10:30. Why do I do that to myself? Instead of just setting my alarm for a decent time to wake up, I always set it waaaay too early and end up like today. Having 5 minute snoozes from 8-10:30!!! I think somewhere in my zombie sleeping state, I reset the alarm for 9, turned it completely off at 10 and finally woke up at 10:30. I'm really hoping to get a few challenges completed before the weekend because I've got a load of things on my to-do list and it doesn't help that I work the entire weekend and I lose an hour! Here's my take on this week's Clean & Simple Fall to Layout #82 and SPCC #38. I loved the sample card for the Fall to Layout challenge. It's a great example of less is WAY more. I'm going to gun for another card before I need to walk the dog, get dinner ready, shower.. You know, the other essentials other than stamping!
