Good morning! It is Sunday morning here on the cusp of the first "normal" week we will have since December 1st. I am so looking forward to getting back into a routine with Aidan in school, Zoey at Mother's Day Out and our other regular routines and activities! Right now the kids are coloring, DH is sleeping and I am watching one of my favorite TV Shows - CBS Sunday Morning. I love the culture/art/comic pieces that they have. A Sunday morning doesn't really feel right unless I get to hear the beautiful trumpet solo that is the shows introduction!

This morning I want to share with you my favorite "wall furnishing." Suzanne over at 123 Scrap is issuing weekly blog challenges and the first challenge is to take a picture of your favorite wall furnishing and to write about it! My favorite is a mobile that I had made for our wedding. Rather than a unity candle, I liked the idea of having a more permanent representation of our union so I asked an Austin artist to make this mobile.

and here is a close-up of the "people."

It makes me happy everytime I see it! If you want to know more about Suzanne's challenge, check out her blog here.

Here's a couple of layouts to share with you from CT kits that were released yesterday. The first is of poor Zoey this week when she was really sick. It is for the Paper to Digi Challenge at Sweet Shoppe Designs. The kit is by Heather Roselli called "Sweetie Pie" also at Sweet Shoppe.

This layout is of my wonderful daughter Zoey at Sea World the other day! She was climbing the ropes at the pirate ship and I happened to capture this picture which I totally love. The kit is by Traci Reed - her newest fabulous kit called "Be the Change" at Sweet Shoppe Designs. The shimmer dust is by Kristin Cronin-Barrow also at Sweet Shoppe Designs.

Okay well I think that is a long enough post for today! Lots of mundane things planned for today - putting away the laundry, meal planning, shopping, meal preparation and more - all to get ready for school to start and to get back into our routine! I hope you have a great day! Please say hello! I love to read your comments!

Cool mobile. And great challenge-- I know I sometimes run out of things to blog about... but today I blogged about a page I scraped using your "For the love of Clover". So, I wanted to say, "Thank you!!!" I'm new to digi-scrapping and your great kit made these two pages a breeze!
