Challenge #162 week of 16th of March 2015

Inspired by being Pampered

This past week my daughter turned 8!  After discussing options for a party, we decided on a Spa Birthday at Spa Babies.  After all, being 8 is awfully stressful!  She invited 5 close friends to join her for manicures, foot bath pedicures and facials.  These kids today have the life!

I don't indulge in regular manicures, but will splurge on a few pedicures over the course of the summer since my little piggies are out on display in sandals and flip flops.  Although, even over the last few summers, I have polished my toes myself in an effort to reserve funds for my scrap stash! While the job gets done pretty well, it is not quite the same experience when I do them myself.

Just before I met up with Pam and Lisa, I decided to get a manicure.  Winter had taken a beating on my hands and my cuticles were horrific.  Plus, I tend to use my nails as scrapping tools so they do take a fair amount of abuse.  How on Earth could I meet people for the first time with such pathetic nails!  I chose a buff color as I wasn't even interested in a color that would only chip off in a matter of days.  It was the best $15 I could have spent.  My nails were trimmed and shaped so nicely.  She massaged my hands and forearms and polished each nail perfectly.  The job was finished with a glossy top coat and a shoulder massage.  Wow!  I felt like a million bucks!  I may not be able to do it every week, but every once in a while...I'm worth it!

So, for this week, I'd like for you to be inspired by being pampered.  It doesn't have to be a spa experience.  It could be anything that brings you to a calm and happy place...a book, a cuppa or even a mud mask with cucumbers on your eyelids!

Be sure to share your layout on the Whimsical Musings flickr group and tag it WM#162.  I'd love to get some other ideas on how I can be good to myself.

Happy Scrapping!



  1. I need to shop around - a $15 mani sounds reasonable!
