The summer has flown on by and we are back to school. Boy - I think it takes me as long as the kids to get used to a routine.
I decided that I didn't like my plain old grade/assignment book, so off the my scraps. Currently, I am participating in a challenge over at Scrapbookingfun.biz to do as many layouts from scraps and stash items on hand by the end of the year as I can. I have seen similar posts on other websites, blogs, and message boards. If you are participating in one - GREAT JOB and GOOD LUCK. It is really fun and allows me to not feel so much like I need to save a particular items for something.
Three total pages were scrapped - here are the first two (third one is just plain papers - denim and green pp). The laminating didn't quite go as I hoped, but it is ok and added some strength and stability to my binder. (one of the cheap ones that came with lots of stuff as a school purchase - lightweight, but fills the purpose I required).
I also finished a Christmas tag that Pixerframer is teaching over at Scrapbookingfun.biz. She is doing 12 classes on Wednesday nights between now and Christmas. Feel free to stop in and join us. She puts out supply lists before the class and I am pretty happy with my first tag! The one I tried on my own didn't come out nearly as well.
