You’re Know You’re Getting Older When…

Remember when you were in college and could pull those ‘all night cram sessions’ and then take your test the next day without feeling worn out??? Or remember going out on long dates or activities where you get home waaaaaaay past midnight… and all you need is a quick cat nap to refresh yourself?  Well… I guess I’m just not a spring chicken anymore.  Last night my good friend, Jacki, hosted one of her fun scrapbooking get-togethers… and I didn’t even stay quite till midnight… and now I’m bushed!!!  How pathetic am I???? WAHAHAHA!  I think I’ve just had too many nights in a row of not sleeping well… and it finally caught up with me.  (and I guess there’s also that whole ‘I have 4 kids’ thing… LOL! Excuses, excuses…) Argh… ‘oh to be 19 again eh?’  (at least I’ll always be 19 in my head… hee hee hee…)

Soooo… today will be a short post.  (Hard to make it a long one --- and have it make any SENSE when you’re bleary eyed)

I wanted to share with you a layout I made yesterday with some of the fantastic new gear from Kim Broedelet’s January grab bag.

Inside and Out

Her bag is on SALE right now if you hurry… make sure to snag it before midnight on January 16th to get a steal of a deal!!!  (This thing is jam packed with HIGH QUALITY items that are worth way way way way more than $8)

I also turned my layout into a quick page freebie for you to use if ya like.  Hope you can find a use for it.
