Something for a gloomy Sunday

Maybe where you are there's sunshine, but here it's cloudy and cool. The kind of day that makes you want to lay around and do nothing.
I've been reading about ATC's lately and I'm rather fascinated by them. I've been thinking about making some myself, of course mine would be of the digital variety. I read an article somewhere about using an old deck of cards to make them on. What I was thinking of doing was printing out the pictures that I do and then gluing them on to the playing cards. Then I would cover the other side of the card with paper and add my contact information. I'm not sure what I would do with them after that but it sounded like fun. This is a picture that I did to put on one.

This is just a random picture I took of Wade while he was riding down the street on his bike, obviously edited.

I discovered a website called Creative therapy The don't do challenges, they refer to them as catalysts. I liked the concept and I plan on going through them to try and spark some creativity.
Another site I found was One Little Word Here, they post one word every other Wednesday. You take it from there. You create whatever you want based on that one word. It can be scrapbooking, hybrid, digital art, whatever, anything goes.
The word right now is "Why" so I created this layout.

The kit I used for this layout was a freebie from and was designed by Marie Stones. I believe the name of the kit is "Mother's Love"
Now I have a freebie for you. Here is Template number 10. This is what I used for my "Why" layout. You can download it right HERE
I do have some other things that I've been working on but I can't seem to finish anything lately. I get so far and then it's like I hit a brick wall. BAM! I guess there are just too many of life's little dramas running through my brain these days and it's playing havoc with my creativity levels.


  1. have been busy again!! I love the ATC idea, I've often thought of having a go.
    Thanks for the template...a girl can never have too many of those.
