Back from Mexico | Layouts to Share

Well, hello there! Where is everyone??? What are you all up to???

I just got back from Mexico on Friday evening. I was there for a couple of days to meet with a new client and start developing a concept for a new magazine. Needless to say, we'll be quite busy during the next few months, but it will be exciting as well when the publication finally launches later this year!

It was a hectic trip. I was up around 3:45 am on Thursday, headed straight to the airport to arrive in Mexico City by 10 am. We checked in to the hotel and headed straight to our meeting. It was a long day! On Friday, we got up at 5 am, went from Mexico City to Toluca and then on to Cancun as part of the work we had to do. Now you see why I was exhausted when we returned on Friday night? But it's all good!

I was catching up on blogs this morning and I came across this site on Caryl's blog. I was immediately interested. Neil Pasricha wrote a book called "The Book of Awesome" and he keeps a blog where he posts one awesome thing every day. It sounds like a great read to inspire you when you're feeling down and depressed. I will definitely be checking out the book!

Lastly, I want to share some more of my layouts with the May Studio Calico kit, Granny's Cupboard. I have had such a BLAST with this kit. Here are some more layouts (all inspired by the beautiful work in the DT gallery).

This one also uses the OA Thrift Shop line, but I found this layout while blogging and loved how it used up the shape stickers (wish I knew who inspired it so I could credit them here!)

And this one uses a mix of my April Cocoa Daisy kit and some extras. This layout is just like one that Davinie Fiero created, but I added a few of my own touches, including that fabric flower that I made. After all, you need a cute flower to round out a boyish layout! LOL

That's all for now! I'm off to go for a nice Sunday walk with my hubby (in this delightful HOT and HUMID weather! Eeek!)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. You all are the best! :)

Peace and happy scrapping!
