October is just around the corner...

I love this time of year!  Fall is here, the weather is cooling off, and it's time to start thinking about Halloween costumes!  I'll admit, I'm not big on the holiday itself, but I certainly love an excuse to get Miss Rachel all decked out in a new costume :)
Since I'm not into the monsters and spooky side of the holiday, a lot of the traditional Halloween kits just don't appeal.  But North Meets South Studios just released a BEAUTIFUL (yes, beautiful) Halloween kit that I am just loving!  This kit is definitely going to work for a lot more than Halloween pictures!  Just click on the preview to go check out the kit!



I scrapped a non-spooky layout with the kit:



I'll be back shortly with a more traditional Halloween kit...have a great weekend!

New Trixie Goodies

Well, I missed my last post, so today is catch-up for me.  Life has been busy with school and church activities, as well as bouts of bronchitis, colds, and the State Fair to boot.  I'm hoping the rest of the month has more of the fun stuff, and a lot less of the germy stuff.

Trixie has released some fabulous new goodies recently.  First up was That's My Boy, which was released as her part of the GGI sale at Gotta Pixel.  I didn't get this kit, but after seeing all of the layouts that have been created with it, I'm seriously thinking that I want to pick it up!


Next up is this month's GAB collection, Little Ladybug.  This kit will be going into her other stores when the GAB sale is over.  Those of you who have known me for a while probably know that I love ladybugs.  And the past year or so, Ladybug has been my nickname for Rachel.  I really love how this kit turned out.


Here's what I did with it:


And lastly, this GORGEOUS autumn collab with Jen C. Designs will definitely be re-used...I love fall, and can't wait to get some new fall family photos :)


And my page, with some of Rachel's birthday shots from last year...


Thanks for stopping by, and happy scrapping to you!

New Templates, New Kits, and a Tired Mama

Hey there friends!  Life has been pretty busy this week, and I'm feeling it today.  Our Labor Day weekend was pretty quiet...Robert spent his time working on his car, and Rachel had bronchitis, so that left me being caretaker, housekeeper, cook...basically everything I normally do.  So there was no real weekend for me.

Tuesday was spent at school, helping with hearing & vision screening, and then two hours of dance; Wednesday was my history class and volunteering in the library; Thursday was my Bible study class on Nehemiah, followed by some girl time with a good friend (woot!, needed it); and today I helped out with school photos this morning, and then hit the grocery store to do the oh-so-fun weekly shopping.  Nothing major, no marathons run, no mountains moved...but I'm tired.  Just really wanting some rest.

I have managed to squeeze in some scrapping time...Trixie and Connie Prince released their September 2012 Templatetopia, and you need to check it out while it's available!



I used a template from the Seeing Double set, as well as Croaky Kisses, and came up with this:



Thanks for stopping by...hope you enjoy your weekend!
