Hope your Monday is Marvelous. ♥

Here's hoping your Monday is a good one. Here it's a luxurious day of laundry and playing crazy deadline catch up. Friday was a wash as poor little Mack came home sick. Saturday was a weird day altogether and not much got accomplished. Sunday, was devoted to being a family and Earth Day, look for great layouts to come about Earth Day. ♥

I want to send you on your way to check out the reveal over at Creative Scrappers for reveal #205:


It was as always a really great reveal. The girls really did an awesome job!! 

Here's how I was inspired by Kristine's sketch:

{Shannon M., #205}

Here's hoping for a happy, productive Monday. ★

Thursday...the day that precedes Friday.

Deep huh? Yeah, I am profound like that. I always have a hard time coming up with cheery titles. Wounded, tortured titles...I am your girl. 

What are you doing this Thursday morning? 

I am listening to Fitz and the Tantrums and pretending to organize my life. I am going to do laundry and work on more deadlines. Possibly fold and put that laundry away...but most likely I will leave it in the dryer and just keep fluff airing it until I can no longer put off the task. I am super ambitious like that. 

The real reason for this post? Sharing a layout using SRM Stickers. I am still amazed that I am on that team with all the fabulous talent. You have no idea unless you check the blog daily, it is ah-maz-ing.

We had an assignment where we could choose from a few different sticker sets and I choose cooking/baking/recipes. I make banana bread for Patrick & Karl (Karl thinks it's solely for him...we all tell him this so that he refrains from whining). I made a double batch so Karl could take it to work...I am quite sure this helps Karl with his popularity. But it was the perfect opportunity to use the stickers and help Paddy remember that I am his sweet, loving mother...not a nagging tyrant who is stepping on his Legos and cussing like a sailor.

So without further ado and thanks as always for letting me share:

*{SRM FREE PLAY - RECIPES - Shannon M.}*

Cinna helped me bake this time and she pouted while it baked in the oven.

Monday Morning Falling

..all around me. Today is a day where I will lock myself away, listen to torturous music and create.

-- ❤ --

I know that a lot of people can't understand that...being content to be all alone. (nor, do I expect them to....but this is why you are you and I am me.)

Before I lock myself away for the day....I need to share with you...that there is a new workout up at ScrapFIT...created for you by none other than the fabulous Diana Fisher! You will find lots of inspiration in this workout, I am certain. I did.

Here's the workout:


Let this color inspiration direct your Layout/ Card/ Paper craft project! These colors are a beautiful combo of soft and subtle with a pop!  Be sure to join us and stay on your FIT track with our Creative Trainer!

Our team created a beautiful reveal (as always!)
Here is how Diana's workout inspired me:

(this was a $1 naked frame from Michaels. Well worth the $1!)
And once again, My Divine Inspiration is sponsoring the workout! How awesome is Diana for doing that!! She is super talented and super giving! Make sure you check out her shop!!
Have a great Monday.

。◕‿◕。 What are you up to on this Wednesday? 。◕‿◕。

Wednesday: the fourth day of the week....must be why I love I like number 4 and number 7. (Yes, I am weird....if you're reading this,and it isn't your first time, then you likely already know this.)

Today is a day to share. ❤ A fun share I think, I rarely share pictures of myself because I am behind the camera most of the time. This picture really captured a beautiful moment though and I was inspired by a recent assignment and it pretty much just flowed out of me.

Find beauty in everyday. ◕‿-。

I find it comforting today as today marks two years without Karl's Mom, Paddy and Mack's Grandma - remarkably, instead of being sad...they laughed yesterday and joked and remembered how much they loved her and funny things that touched our family. 

I am featured over on SRM Stickers blog today...and I am happy to share it with you. ☼ We can't wait to get back to the sea. ❤



I am so happy to be a part of SRM. Thank you for lettng me share with you! Keep checking SRM each day! ❤

¸.•♥•.¸¸.•♥• Happy Easter! •♥•.¸¸.•♥•.¸

Good Morning on this Easter Sunday ✝! Hallelujah, HE is Risen!

I hope you are enjoying your Easter Sunday and spending time with your loved ones or simply just sleeping in!

Today is a beautiful day whether it's raining, snowing or sunny where you are. Embrace it and be happy for all the small things, like breathing, seeing, hearing, etc.

I am happy to share a great reveal for this fine Sunday. Creative Scrappers is revealing Sketch #203 and it's a really inspiring one:


Here's how it inspired me (not my typical standard layout fare - but I wanted it to be light and airy -- without my usual barriers built up within the page, free and flowing):


*{#203, Shannon M.}*

I hope you have a wonderful Easter Sunday and feel uplifted,  ready to begin or renew -- whatever you are needing, I hope you can find inspiration in today!

★·.·´¯`·.·★ It's no joke, it's April 1st! ★·.·´¯`·.·★

It's April! April! This year is flying by, passing me by....literally. I feel like I am being lapped. My Mom says this is normal, that everyone has a point in their life where they feel crazy, unhinged, etc. I think it's just how I roll. I don't know that I could function in a normal way! I am clearly in denial that we are already in the 3nd fiscal quarter of the year...sheesh.

Though April 1st does bring good things like both my Daddy's and my Dad in law's birthday, remembering my Mother in Law Dee ❀ and my Grandma's birthday and Kristy and Scott's anniversary! 

◕ ‿ ◕ also brings things like WORKOUT #65 over at ScrapFIT. (Which is the reason for my post today!) 

Here's the scoop on the latest workout:

 The workout is being sponsored by:

The Divine Inspiration Etsy Shop

(This shop is filled with tons of great embellishments!!! Do check it out if you haven't already)

Here's the inspiration for your workout:

 The idea behind this workout is:

Use the photo above for inspiration. You can gather inspiration from the colors, the time period, they style, you can use anything about this photos that inspires you!

So see it's really up to you!

You have to check out the rest of the team's take on it too!!
