Breaking Out of the Slump

I haven't been posting much because I haven't been crafting much. Sure my family and I took an impromtu vacation to Chicago last week but this crafting slump I've been in started before that. Can't explain it, I know it happens to everyone and it has happened to me before, it's just never lasted this long. Since it's the start of a new week I decided I would JUST DO IT...start with some challenges and make something. So here it is, my attempt to break out of my slump with this sweet image from Elizabeth Dulemba again!
Photobucket
I worked in a lot of challenges too:
Magical Crafts: Animal Antics
One Stitch at a Time: Anything Goes
Pollycraft: Anything Goes
Our Creative Corner: Buttons
Just Cute Bears: Use yellow and Green
Pile it On: Easel card
Incy Wincy: Fancy Fold Card
Secret Crafter: Garden Images
Cupcake Crafts: Handmade flowers
Daisy Doodles: Sketch
