Where does the time go?

It seems like there are just not enough hours in the day anymore to accomplish all that needs to get done and still have time for crafting. Why were things so much easier in the UK. It seemed that I had much more time to craft and get everything done even though I was working more. ?? I don't know. Anyway, I did make a bit of time for some crafting today. I got this page done again just in the nick of time for the SYAO challenge. This is week number 7's sketch.

And here is my take....
the picture is of Belle feeding the humming birds at my dads. She had to stand very still for quite a bit to get them to come around. If you look close you can see the one heading to the feeder she is holding.
The papers are from Prima Song Bird collection. The tree is make using an old Prima foam stamp. I cut out the leaves by hand from scrap paper and sprayed them with Mistletoe Tattered Angels mist.
The birds are cut from the Song bird paper and placed around. Here is a close up of the tree and birds(above).
Below is a close up of the quote(came from an old sticker sheet sorry I do not know the name). It reads "Life reveals her beauty one precious miracle at a time" I used a bit of inked tuling over it and added the ribbon roses(Tim Holtz) on that. I am happy with the end result. Of course it took me half the day though.

Tomorrow I have some volunteer work in the morning at my daughters school then in the evening I am starting a Zumba class with a friend of mine. I am very excited but I have no idea what to expect. I hope it is not too crazy. I have been missing my walks we used to do in England so some exercise would be a good thing.

Hopefully I will have a bit of time to do some crafting catch up in between tomorrows activities. I heard it is supposed to rain a bit so I can skip the laundry for a day and spend it crafting instead.
That is at least until school lets out.

Now I am off to do some much needed blog reading and catch up.
Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day. Angela
