10/03/16 - MIM #73

Good Morning to you!
It's Monday...and today's Monday brings you a "Make It Monday" sketch from The Memory Nest!
Why am I so cheerful on a Monday morning?
Well, cuz I actually wrote this blog post on a Saturday (so although my blog post is cheerful, since it's now Monday, I'm probably not, LOL)!
Also, because I actually like the layout I created!
This is a big deal right now because since July my scrappy mojo has been non-existent and I have only actually created 1 layout since then (as of this writing)...
and I didn't even like that layout.
So this layout and post is a big deal (for me)!
Edited to add: I have now created 4 layouts I like since this posting (which includes this layout)!
So maybe just maybe my mojo is coming back!
Without further ado...

"Happy 39th Birthday" 
Journaling: "David's 39th birthday was on a Tuesday and we went to a local baseball game.
We ran into a couple of his mom's friends who were there celebrating their anniversary.
David mentioned his birthday and later his name appeared on the announcement board
under their names. What a surprise!
Thanks, Dave and Gloria!
August 9th, 2016"
We had a big celebration planned for my husband's birthday the weekend following, but for the actual day we just went to a ballgame; something he really enjoys!
It was such a coincidence that we ran into his mom's friends and that they were celebrating also.
And how sweet it was of them to advise the baseball staff to put his name up on the announcement board?!  I only wish I had thought of that... Oops! Bad Wifey! LOL!
Hope you can play along.
You have until the end of the month!



  1. Such a cute layout and story! Sometimes it's so nice when people do little surprise things for other people.
    sorry to hear about your mojo but I hope it returns! Since I've been pocket scrapbooking, that has only happened once, luckily.

  2. Such a great story behind this page! That was wonderful of them to have his name added to the announcement board, I bet that was cool to see. I especially like how you layered and added the tape. A fun take on this sketch!

  3. Such a great story to document! I loveeeeeeee this! LOVING seeing the old NS papers in action!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Love the layout! What a fun story to record and you did a great job interpreting the sketch.

  5. You always do a fantastic job with combining patterns and collections. This page is no exception. Super story about the fun time you guys had on his birthday!

  6. Doreen--you drew that banner right?!?!!!! WOW! This is spectacular!

    1. No Marci, I didn't draw it... It was already on there!
