I lived a whole month yesterday….

Ever had one of those days where you lived a whole month inside 18 hours? That was yesterday…It was sheer craziness: work, back & forth to 2 schools, errands, appointments, teacher conferences,  multiple committee commitments, a new Product Focus Review published at Splitcoast. church meetings and all those fun little things that the hubby considers right up there with bon-bons on the couch – you know: laundry, feeding the children, making the beds, finding time for a shower….I need a vacation!

I had started this card for today’s Way’s to Use It Challenge, hosted by my friend, Michele Boyer, over at Splitcoast a few days ago. Julie Campbell created a DARLING sample, as well.  I was channeling ‘balcer‘, and used a little Splitcoast green.  I finished it up while watching Idol on DVR at midnight. (I can’t even pick a favorite yet because I love several of them A LOT!  Go Danny, Go Adam, Go Lil, Go Megan, Go Kris!) I used Splitcoast green to accent my new Unity Stamps.

Today, I want to ‘just be‘. I’ll let you know how that works out…tomorrow.
