CPS #193

Happy snowy evening and what a peaceful night it is!! Such a contrast from earlier in the day! We had a blustery afternoon which caused the electricity to go out in our little town. We sat for over an hour in the dark in the library this afternoon. It made for an unusual ending to a normal school day. It is kind of fun to have something out of the norm happen, and lucky for us, school was let out a little early!! Hooray! I felt just like a little kid again, excited to get out of school! Excitement was in the air for all that could be done in the extra minutes we found in our day! For me, it was a wonderful time to get out my scrappy goodies and spend some time having fun! I have not been feeling well all week, so scrappy time wasn't in the formula! So, I took advantage of the time and I will make sure that I get into bed earlier than normal. It's a win, win situation!!!

I decided to play with Card Positioning Systems sketch #193.
