No Housework Zone....

Welcome to the National No Housework Day Online Blog hop! If you have arrived not knowing until now about the hop, no problem...just go back to If It's Groovy where this hop starts and work your way through. You may find games, prizes, projects and how do-you-dos along the path :) We would appreciate it if you sign up to keep in touch with us by "following" and would love your comments!

Perhaps you arrived here from The Limitations of Thought, YEAH! Hope you enjoyed that stop and the others so far!!! We celebrate this national holiday by scrapping today and into the weekend with projects that remind us of housework or getting away from it!!! Take the day off, put up your feet and let's hop!
Just for checking out my blog today I have a yummy K&Company prize pack for you. They just recently sent me some goodies to give away so why not just make it today since we are not doing any housework and just blog hopping all day! Perfect sounding to me :)

To be entered in the giveaway (one entry for each) you will need to:
1 - Become a Follower to my blog
2 - Leave me a comment telling me what your favorite thing to do is when housework is not in the picture!

Today I want to share with you my No Housework layout. Well sorta....lol...its a layout of my daughter and granddaughter snoozing. I had given her a list of chores to do around the house for me and I came home to this....both of them zapped out and snoozing away. With not a single bit of the housework complete. So I guess this would classify as a no housework zone day wouldn't you...lol


and how could you not resist this cutie....yep....gotta love her. I used some yummy Pink Paisley paper, Basic Grey paper for the banner, Bazzill white and brown cardstock and just little bits of my stash. Around the scalloped circle I used Imaginisce gems. LOVE those things.


I hope you enjoyed your stop to my blog today. don't forget to visit.....From the Owls Nest which is your next stop in the Blog Hop.

Beautiful LO...So my favorite thing to do when housework is not in the picture is scrap of course! I usually try to get sometime in always during the kids naps and between the loads of laundry.

Lillian Child said...

What a lovely layout, Becky!

My favorite activity when the dust bunnies release me would be to sit in the shade and read a new Dean Koontz novel. Of course, it would have to be a warm day, with no rain and little wind, which doesn't happen too often here in Nebraska, so when Mother Nature is in cahoots with the dust bunnies, I'll be in my kitchen trying out a new recipe.
