5 layouts that I finished wouldn't upload correctly and it's getting to late to fool with them, so I'll get them posted later. I do have several to share though...
Every time I'd sort through my paper crate, I'd see the free 8x8 pack of We R Memory Maker's paper that I got free with purchase a while back. I decided to pull it out and work with it. It took a while to piece the 8x8 papers to get them to work on my 2-page 12x12 LO, but in the end, I scrapped pics from 2006 that are now ready to go in an album. The scallops bordering the page were inspired by a LO I saw in Scrapbook Trends.
This one is for Kevin...

Finally, last night I scrapped my new fall favorite. I can admit now that when I worked, I had an obsession with purses. I had way too many of them and spent way to much on them. When I started staying home, it seemed like all of my personal purchases came to a halt so I could prioritize (wink, wink) and purchase scrapbook supplies. While we were in Florida this summer, we found an outlet mall. My sisters were excited to find a Coach outlet. Although the purses were pretty, I wasn't impressed. Later we came across a Lucky outlet. My sisters were thrilled to find the expensive jeans half price. I wondered around the store while they were in the fitting rooms and fell in love with the Lucky bags they had. It had nothing to do with the Lucky brand - I just LOVED the leather bags. I finally broke down and spent $70 for this (all leather) multi-colored bag. It was regular $148! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. So, I had to scrap it - right? I even scrapped the tags that came with it.
Have a great week!

Last month I was so busy working on our vacation album, that I barely touched the September kit from Personal Scrapper. In the LOAD gallery, a LO by scrappinstar inspired me to pull out my kit and use it. I used a picture of Kevin at the lake this summer for "you" - it was the first of three LOs I did on the 7th.
For the 9th, I had to keep things even, so I scrapped Blake's Halloween from that year, too.

On the 1st, I made a couple layouts for our vacation album, but I'm only posting my favorite. The challenge for the 1st was to use buttons. I clustered them together in the center of my chipboard sun. For Day 2, the challenge was to use circles. I used my new scalloped circle punch on both of these school layouts. We received an extra 8x10 in the boys' school portrait packages, so I quickly scrapped them. I used the new KI Memories school line for these two pages.
After five days, I'm up to 10 layouts. I like having that "cushion" with the boys home on fall break this week. Plus, next weekend we will be staying busy with all the partying we'll do for Blake's birthday!
