Bridging to Cadettes- Part 1

Howdy blogging friends!
How have you been??? 
I have missed all my virtual friends these last couple of weeks.
I am slowly on the mend and getting better eery day.

Since I am still on pain medication I have not 
attempted to do too much scrapping!

I have doodled around in the studio a bit here
and there, but mostly I spend my time
lying on the couch and letting The Hubs wait on me :o)
Not a bad deal really!

I wanted to share a layout I finished up. I started this when I was 
at retreat in August, but I just couldn't file it away as "done" -
it needed a "little something".
I FINALLY figured out what it needed and finished it up.
One more Girl Scout Layout down!!!
I have used some older Bo Bunny papers for this one. 
I really wanted to express the passage of time and these papers were PERFECT!

I used my Cricut for the title, bling is from Recollections, and the
journal card was fussy cut from the PP.
I fussy cut the clocks out of coordinating paper and scattered them
around my layout. A little spritz of mist on the background helped to
finish the layout off and the brads are Bo Bunny.
Now you know white pace is my enemy and I think this is why I couldn't put this one away -
I had this large space in the center that was making me nuts!
So I grabbed my favorite set of 7 Gypsies stamps and filled in.

Yes, I know I typo-ed the journaling, but such is life.
I had my years mixed up!!

And look - it is relatively FLAT! Yeah - mission accomplished.
This whole making flat pages is killing me!
I need to finish of this project and go back to making
lumpy pages again,,,,,, soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I have another post-op check up tomorrow,
I am really hoping that I will be freed from the couch.
But it isn't likely. He told me two full weeks, maybe three. 
Very. Big. Drag.
