TGIF!

So, my sweet friend Lori Renn totally made my night last night. The October issue of Scrapbook Trends contains the first layout I have ever had published by them. I’ve been stalking the stores, but it isn’t out near me yet, but Lori just received hers since she subscribed. Anyway, she offered to take a photo of the page for me, hehea, so I’m nerdy enough that I took her up on it. So, thanks again Lori!!

I have a layout to share that I finished last night which uses the new Luxe Simply Brown Line (I love all the Simple lines - I’m especially a sucker for ledger lines!) and some bits of the new Sprinkles line, too (I have another layout which is entirely made up from the Sprinkles line that I’ll be sharing soon, as well). Our design team challenge this month was to use the Maya Road Sheer or Chipboard letters in a fun way. Well, as soon as I heard that challenge, this idea popped in my head to use all the letters of the alphabet as a design element on a page about my baby starting preschool.


Journaling reads: I can’t believe it’s time for preschool already! You are going two mornings a week, but since I work part-time, that means our time for fun activities and playdates is limited. I really miss having that time with you, but I know you are very ready for school, so I’m excited for you. You’ve shown great interest lately in the letters and their sounds, and you’ve even started writing your name. I’m so proud of you, Noah, and I can’t wait to see what this year has in store! I love you! Mommy

Besides the Luxe patterned papers and Maya Road sheer letters, I also used Luxe labels and stamps, MM felt letters and Jenni Bowlin stars.

It’s been a busy week here – I feel like I haven’t had as much time to scrap lately as I would like. I’m hoping I can make up for it this weekend :-) Hope everyone has a wonderful end to their week!
