Maintaining sanity

December 2009 has been such an insanely busy time for me, with lots of things happening in our family life. And I don't just mean the rush to be organised for Christmas! I appreciate the encouraging thoughts from my friends who know the full story. One thing keeping me sane is stealing a few moments of creative time in the wee small hours of the night, when it is cool, calm and quiet.

Here are a few more creations I finished this week:

This one is yet another layout for the guinea pig calendar - so I just HAD to scrap this week so I could finish it off before Christmas!!

# Design Dollies ~ Sketch challenge

Next is another card caddy - this one is for my Mum. She saw the one I made for my mother-in-law a few weeks back, and although she didn't come out and say it, I got the impression that she'd like one too! I used lots of pink in this one:

And last, a fun layout for Em's challenge over at Scrap Boutique. Using lyrics from Eurythmics' 'Beautiful Child', a stamped title, and bright colours:
