Well summer officially come to an end in my household as I sent my kidlets off to school this morning! I can't say that I am happy to see the summer end but I am quite looking forward to getting back into a routine and having some time to myself! Running errands and checking off items on my "To Do" list just weren't a priority. It really is just to much hassle to try to do battle with my kids to cooperate while I tried to get the to do stuff done! So it all gets put aside for the time being. But now I have no excuse, so I better get some of it done! :D
First up on my list is to publish a post on my blog! Yup, you are all a priority for my first day to myself! :D This post won't be super long, cause like I said, I need to get some chores checked off!
One thing I wanted to mention first off is about the "THINK PINK" crop that the store will be having this coming Saturday and the following Saturday! I am super excited to be able to actually get a chance to play for the first crop and then I will work the second crop. If there are any of my scrappy peeps in Saskatoon that are still thinking of coming, there are three spots available for this Saturday's crop and I hope you will come join in. It is going to be a great time!! The event for the one day costs $50 and includes supper, lootbag, muffins in the morning, snacks throughout the day, make 'n takes, raffle table, button guess and loads of fun! All proceeds will go to the C95 Radio Marathon for Breast Cancer Research, a very worthwhile charity!
If you can't make it to the crop there is still a chance to help support this great cause! The raffle table and button guess will be available to anyone who comes into the store. I am not sure how much the tickets will be for the raffle prizes but I do know there are some GREAT prizes (that are not all just scrapbook related!) from companies such as Pampered Chef, Tupperware, Stampin Up, Close to My Heart, Lia Sophia and TONS more!!!!! So come check it out!
(Don't bother with entering your name into the Pampered Chef prizes, cause I am already going to win those ones!! LOL)
Now for just a couple pics of what I have been upto creatively this summer!
This layout was created using a mish mash of a companies such as My Minds Eye, Basic Grey and Simple Stories. I then I just added miscellaneous buttons, jute string, a journaling tag and sticker to finish it off.
I tore and sanded some of the edges to give it a roughed up, worn out look like the background wood paper.
I loved how this page turned out! This color green is not a color I would normally use but of course you've got to when scrappin about your fave football team!
There was another 12x12 pattern paper that actually said Roughriders, but since I didn't have enough pictures to do a two-page layout, I improvised! I created the rest of the title by taking some white letter stickers and tracing around them. I also traced the "Saskatchewan" letters with the same black marker to make everything look more uniform and stand out.
Here is another fall page using a new line from Simple Stories called Harvest Lane. I love this line! In fact, I love all of simple stories papers!
Thanks for takin a look today! See you again!
