09/26/16 - "You Had Me At..."

Lookie!
I actually created a layout.
I should re-phrase that...I actually created a layout I like!
Only the second layout I have created in the past 2 months; the first that I've liked.
 
I created my layout for the following 2 September Scrapbook.com challenges:
 
-In This Corner
The challenge requires "the use of background paper that has a pre-printed design in one or more corners".
The swirls all over the side, corner, and bottom of the paper I used are pre-printed
*Includes twist of using something old and something new (if adhesive counts)!
All the items on here are old except for the adhesive which I bought 2 weeks ago.
 
 
- Food Challenge
(A photo of actual food is not required)
*Includes Twist of Scrapping "your favorite food or favorite type of food"
Mine is "Pumpkin Spice" flavored foods!
 
Here is the before of the "corner" paper:
 
Before ...............................
 
(This has been in my stash since 9/2008)!
 
After...................................
 
"You Had Me At Pumpkin Spice"
Journaling:
"Target find -$12.99
9.18.16 - My new favorite shirt about my favorite food:
Pumpkin Spice Everything!
#YUMMY"
 
Yes, I am one of those people.
I love Pumpkin/Pumpkin Spice flavored foods/goodies!
I look forward to Pumpkin/Pumpkin Spice Season every year!
 
If you want to see how bad my "obsession" is, check out my alternate Instagram Account (you'll have to scroll to see some of the photos I'm referring to):

Also for the following SB.com September Challenges:


-Hoarders Challenge
Like I said, everything on here is old. The BG paper is so old I can't even estimate when I bought it!
Everything else has been in my stash for (AT LEAST) a year.
*No Twist

-Sticker Challenge
I used 7:
-6 Alphas
-1 Pumpkin
*No Twist

09/19/16 - MIM #72

Hi!
I know I've been MIA for a while; I've even missed a couple of Design Team projects!
I've had absolutely no scrappy mojo and w/ Summer being so busy it was difficult to find time to scrap when the ideas weren't readily flowing...(plus my printer wasn't working for a bit ::sigh::).
I can't say for sure I'll be around much as my mojo is still pretty non-existent, for instance I'm not a fan of the page I'm sharing today, but I certainly hope I will be around more than I have been!

As for today, I bring you "Make it Monday" sketch #72 from "The Memory Nest":







"High School - 1st Day"
 
That's correct: Madi, my baby, is now in High School!
She started her first day w/blue hair and a smile... the blue hair will most definitely fade, but here's hoping that smile doesn't!

If you want to play along you have until the end of the month!
