Off to church I went, and it was so good to see everybody there, all dressed up in their finest Easter Sunday best!... Later, my family came by for a big Easter dinner, and I'm only sorry I didn't take more pictures than I did. (Sigh)... That's just how it goes when you're playing both roles of hostess, and then head chef back in the kitchen as well. I was definitely on my toes and running, but I wouldn't have changed a thing. I was so glad we all had this time together!
Now I face the week ahead. Dear Son has his Spring Vacation for the entire week, and I am eager to plan out how I will use my time wisely. I look forward to the break... some quality rest and relaxation! I look forward to doing a little of everything, crocheting and scrapbooking, reading, etc., etc.! But I also hope to use this time wisely. I have much I want to do, in the way of Spring cleaning 'round my house, and honestly it does feel overwhelming to me. How can I manage the best of both worlds, I guess time will tell; but I refuse to let any of it stress me out! I'll just do what I can, in the time that I've got... and just "let it roll, roll, roll"! It's all good!
Recently, I came across a scrapbooking website called Scrapping The Music. I love all kinds of music, and here a specific song is chosen bi-monthly, to which you can scrapbook along with the proposed challenge(s) for that song!
So this week's challenge centered on "The Time Song", by Matt Urmy. You can find it HERE, via YouTube video.
Here's the two-page spread I did, Challenge 196A, for my very first Scrapping The Music entry.
Recently, Leslie, at Words of Me Project, shared how to make envelopes out of recycled materials, so I gave it a try with some old-but-colorful sales flyers. Here you can see I added one, so that tucked inside, I could save a printed copy of the song; and then on separate sheet of paper, my own handwritten hopes and plans for the week ahead.
I used various scraps and images throughout both pages. I particularly liked the old dashboard, car-radio image!.. And I thought the angel faces were so cute!
I made a clock out of an old juice can lid. I used a Crafter's Workshop "Time Travel" 6x6" template to stencil some clocks in the background... And then some punchella to border the edges and corners a bit. All in all, it was a fun little project to play with as I wound down for the evening!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Wishing everybody a great week!
