hi there :o) SP here today…back from a WONDERFUL family vacation…and trying to get back into the swing of things, lol! Of course…you’ll see LOTS of vacation pics on my October layouts…but for today – we are here to ‘check-in’ on the SEPTEMBER pages :o) Are you guys up-to-date…falling behind…just joining us?! Wherever you are with them – I hope you are enjoying and having fun! As I say just about every time (sorry, lol) – it is such a GREAT feeling to be caught-up and scrapping CURRENT memories (instead of getting farther and farther behind) :o) So…do your best to keep up with us…and in the end – you will be SOOOO happy to have 2011 scrapped, promise! Trust me…there will always still be ‘older’ photos to scrap and catch-up on…but my philosophy is…HEY – at least i’m NOT letting that (virtual) stack of unscrapped photos get any taller, lol!
Alright…back to our SEPTEMBER check-in for project SCRAP :o) If you haven’t started your September pages yet…it’s time to get scrappin’ (and uploading, lol)! September was another FULL and FUN (albeit busy, as per usual) month for us…seemed like we were running around, nonstop – especially trying to prepare for vacation (ya know how that goes!)! But, we certainly still managed to fit in all kinds of great activities…from the trip to the Grandparents…to LOTS of reading…back to school…baking…and so much more! These templates were just perfect to showcase it all – and the scrapping was just plain FUN (though I challenged myself to use NO flowers…and that wasn’t easy for me, lolol)! Here’s what I ended up with…
And, as you probably already know, I always enjoy sharing more inspiration with you…and there were some great September ‘spreads’ in the project SCRAP gallery - love it! Be sure to stop by the gallery to see all of the fabulous September pages AND more!
So…moving on to aforementioned inspiration, lol! Here we have Kylie’s GORGEOUS layouts! As per usual…she , she worked her magic with the Darling Paper Collection – perfectly coordinating them with her beautiful photos! As those of us in the States are entering into the fall season…Kylie (and so many of our sweet blog friends) is currently enjoying the beginning of spring…as you can see from her pages :o) She had a special month…and scrapped it beatifully! Thanks Kylie :o)
I always LOVE Kim’s (Five17Creations) pages…and this month was no exception! I so enjoy getting to ‘watch’ little Samuel grow…and it’s always fun to see all of the great activities their family shares together! As a little side note…you’ll be seeing lots more from Kim here at the blog (Kylie will have more on that tomorrow…sorry, Kylie – you know I just can’t keep a secret, lolol)! Anyhoo…FABULOUS pages…adorable family…perfect every time…thanks :o)
And last…but far from least – we have these PRECIOUS pages by scrapmomma :o) Adorable little Brielle turned one…and these pages ‘tell the story’ perfectly…just so, so SWEET! Also, fabulous use of the An Affair to Remember collection…and did you notice how she ‘tweaked’ the templates to accomodate more photos (similar to how Kim did above!)? LOVE it! Thanks so much for sharing with us!
K, I think that will do it for this project SCRAP check-in! Keep on scrappin’…and don’t forget to upload your layouts so we can all see! I truly enjoy seeing what all of you guys do with the templates…and just love knowing that we’re all in this project together, lol :o) Oh…and the new OCTOBER project SCRAP templates will be shared here on the blog on the 20th…so stay tuned for that :o)
Enjoy the end of the week…and have a BEAUTIFUL weekend! Be sure to stop back by tomorrow…as Kylie shares a FUN blog/team announcement! XOXO — SP
