Hello September!

September is here, and that means that fall is near!! Although we've had a cooler than normal summer, I'm still looking forward to those cool, sunny fall days, fall fashion, fall birthdays, and the holidays!  :)

Scrappy Sunday

Hey there!
For me, it's the day before school starts! This summer has simply flown by! I have had many, many wonderful moments and some challenges too. I have learned a lot about myself, and life this summer.
Anyway, here is a sample of some of my favorite new layouts!

Thanks for stopping by!  :)

Scrappy Sunday

Hey there everyone!
Welcome to another Scrappy Sunday. I am sad to know that August is half over, but it's been a productive crafty summer for me. I felt like I lost my groove for a while there. Between being super busy with school, stressed over work, and general stress, I was wiped out. So, I tried some new techniques, like using up by backlog of papers and supplies. Another thing I did this summer was to take a few classes. I normally don't like videos (I like PDFs to read at my leisure), but, I took the Kelly Purkey Craftsy class, which are videos, and now I'm hooked with watching scrap videos! It's a different feeling to watch the process. Just what I needed to get out of my rut. :)
Happy Sunday and thanks for stopping by!

Scrappy Sunday

Hello there!
I have been scrapping away happily here. I have been trying to be creative and use up my scraps and older collections I have been hoarding. I just pick up a pile of pretty papers and I keep making pages until the papers are gone! It's a new technique for me that's been working well. It's definitely a different way to scrap. I kind of like it too! Have any of you out there tried to scrap this way?

Thanks for stopping by!
