The unthinkable happened last week. The power supply in my computer just stopped working, puff and it was black. I never realized just how much I rely on my computer. First thought was no email or Internet access, and panic set in LOL. Although I have access from my son's room that option comes with a lot of ifs. If he isn't on it, if I can wade through to it, if I can get his keyboard (with missing buttons and no back space) to work and we won't even talk about the mouse. Although I have access at work it just isn't the same. Then there was scrapping, no printing pictures, no printed journaling and no SCAL. I know my Cricut Expression is stand alone but I have become so enabled by Design Studio that it's near imposable for me to be productive with out my computer. What has my world come to, being held captive by technology. I can truly say I went through withdrawals and the thought of going without until next week when the new part arrives it's unbearable. Thank goodness for credit cards and 18 month no interest plans. One laptop later all it right with my world again.

I've been busy checking some wonderful blogs today. You know how it is, you visit your regulars and one link takes you to another and before you know it you've found at least a half dozen new blogs full of creative treasures. I found a link to Sharon's Blog who not only has some adorable cards but Valentine's day blog candy as well. She has a great blog and you will love her cards. Her Tilda's are are delightful.

Do you find yourself more motivated when you do a challenge. I know for myself it always seems to give me a little direction to channel my creativity in or a little boost when mine is at a lull. This is a challenge from Visual Designs by Chris. This layout was done with SCAL. I used his embellishment cut for my hinges. I cut the first one attached to the frame and layered the second with pop dots and brads to give it a dimensional look. My intention for this page was to resemble an old book cover. The picture is one of my grand daughter regally posing in one of the gowns I made for her dress-up trunk.
