LOAD213: Success!

It's been a long time since I have finished the Layout a Day challenge. I have been participating for well, almost two years now. This will be my second time making it the whole way through and I have to say that it feels pretty darn good. My husband and son were very supportive and I now have a ton of layouts completed. Somehow, I managed all my LOAD layouts plus my creative team assignments. I'm a tired but happy girl.

So what now? Well, I am going to take it easy for a few days. Believe it or not, scrapbooking is planned today and this weekend. I might not make a layout every day, but I will be in my creative space working on something. I still have my JYC 2012 layout to finish, PL 365, plus some creative team assignments.

I still have a few blog posts featuring LOAD213 layouts to share, but I really wanted to share this one today. It's one of my favorites this month. I love it because it used up scraps made from several JBS Mercantile kits, it has a too cute for words cat die cut, plus some cool instagrams of our youngest furry family member.
