Breakthrough? Breakdown?

Its hard to say. I'm in a slump of sorts. I've long believed that the best thing to do in the winter is to follow the lead of many animals and hibernate. I think we all need a season of rest. I've not been feeling completely well lately and I think I just need more sleep. How many of you are nodding your head along with me? I am hopeful that with the approach of spring, longer days and warmer temperatures, my mojo will return to me soon.

Love is in the air - can you feel it? Quirky Twerp has been feeling the love lately and has some gorgeous Valentines Days designs. I made this first page of my sweet Grandma and her 2nd husband. I sadly never knew either of my Grandpa's on my father's side.

most elements and papers from Valentines Retrospect by Quirky Twerp
some elements from Vita Fortunata by Quirky Twerp
ledger paper from Noel by Mari Koegelenberg
worn album papers from Illuminated Journal by ViVa Artistry
page template Prefab tagbook square by Studio Dutchie (no longer available)

And aren't these just the most beautiful vintage tags? So fun for hybrid projects.

One of my all-time favorite scrappers also designs templates, you may know her as gonewiththewind and she designs under the name of Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs. I've used her templates soooo many times in the past. Well, I just happened to ask around digi land for some templates for school portraits and she stepped right in and offered to design some! She is such a dear! This is just the first of many pages to come using school portraits.

This last page is also a Fiddle-Dee-Dee template using Studio Gypsy's latest and greatest madness called "Do That Thing." I am so lucky to be able to scrap using these wonderful designs!

Hmmm, I think you may be on to something with that hibernation idea, Holly! Or at least we could go to bed when it gets dark and get up when it's light out? I've been sick for a week or more with a nasty cold/cough, so I'm definitely ready for Spring! Really beautiful pages, as always. :)
