Sassy Sponsorship: The Crazy Challenge - Here Comes Spring
Good morning, fellow crafters! I am in need of a vat of coffee, stat! My son had a rough night, and as a result, I didn't get much sleep. There is nothing more frustrating as a mother than a crying child who can't tell you what is wrong. I tried all the usual suspects - diaper change, drink, food, and cuddling, and though each would work for a time, the moment I put him back in his crib so I could get some rest, the screaming would start again. Someone suggested he might have an ear infection, but he has no history and wasn't tugging at his ears at all. I finally was forced to let him cry it out, and he quieted down and drifted off to sleep. But at that point it was 4am. My alarm goes off at 6am. Needless to say, I hit snooze and ignored the world for an extra hour. lol But here I am with a quick blog post before I get my day started. Though I may need a disclaimer today to prepare my unsuspecting co-workers.... Warning: Approach with Caution - Sleep Deprived Mom - WILL Be Cranky!!! lol
This week Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring The Crazy Challenge! The theme for CCH #56 is Here Comes Spring! I have used the SSD digi image Chelsea with Chicks for my card. I paired her with the fabulous layout from Sketch Saturday #144. I flipped the sketch to accommodate my image, but kept all the elements.
This was a lot of fun to do because I am dreaming of Spring, and after the icy precipitation we got yesterday, it can't come soon enough! So if you have Spring Fever like me, be sure to play along with SSD as we sponsor the Crazy Challenge this week! Just link your creation here before Sunday, March 6th for a chance to win some Sassy Studio Designs images of your choice!
Thanks for looking, and now if you'll excuse me, I must caffeinate.....
