My Favourite Girls & an Urge to Scrap!

Do you ever find, the less time you have to scrap, the more you feel the need and want to scrap?

That always seems to happen to me.
Take yesterday as an example.
Crazy busy day. A couple of bad nights sleep. Hollie came home from school sick again and my scrappy mojo suddenly kicks in. I need to make pancakes before Louis goes to footy training, I have work to do in the evening, Louis comes home from training hurt.....and my head wants to scrap.

I gave in and allowed myself little scrappy breaks early in the evening.
I went on to the Chic Tags Blog, found a challenge.
Just a few minutes at a time.
And I made this. 

The challenge was to use 'green'.
Hollie took this selfie on my IG when we were last at my sister's of her, my Mum and my little niece. Looking at this, my other fave girl isn't there : (   My sis.
Hollie and Millie could pass as sisters. They are so alike in so many ways.

I used lots of Chic Tags goodies on this LO. I love all the tags and bits and pieces. The circles below were made using a punch and the Chic Tags packaging.
Nothing quite like a little recycling!!

It just goes to show that you don't have to spend hours when you have the urge to scrap.
Having a scrap space does help as you can come and go and leave a project out, but this LO was made in just a short space of time in several little scrappy bursts and I finished off with the sewing at the end of the day when the kids were in bed and I'd finished work.
I'm glad I allowed myself this time.
I needed it : )

Hope you are feeling creative and get a scrappy fix today.
Here's that Chic Tags challenge if you fancy a little boost too.

Oh dear. Hope you get more rested in the next few days. Hugs.

I love the clean and fresh feel of your layout. Great use of the white space as a design element. :)
