School Time

It seems really strange that school time is here...already. I wasn't ready for them to go back yet. It seemed like the summer just flew us by. Granted, this has been the coldest summer on record for a number of years in Minnesota, so it seems like we never had any beach or sprinkler worthy days. But sure enough, this day did approach.

And although I wasn't ready for them to go off... my two kiddos were SO excited to start school.
Here they are in the school yard this morning.

I am just so proud of myself for not crying (I usually am a weeper at most events), but I do admit that I did tear up after seeing Gabe and his kindergarten class line up and go down the hallway after their teacher. He just looked so little and so cute.

I just realized that I haven't posted any of my layouts in...goodness... ages!!
So here are a few of my latest.

Explore. Learn. Grow.

So, I made it through the Great Minnesota Get-Together - The Minnesota State Fair! After lots and lots of fried food, most of which was on a stick, I'm dreaming of more. I made a list on the way home of everything I ate (OK I did share a little!) Started out the day with a iced coffee, and moved right on to a foot-long beef hot dog by about 10am. Then proceed with cheese on a stick, sno cone, pronto pup, quesidella, cinni minis, an ice cream float, cream puff, pickle on a stick, caramel apple, scottish egg, bucket of cookie (ok, I did not eat all of these), fried pickles (which were actually REALLY good), cheese curds (times two), another foot-long hot dog, fried buffalo chips, strawberry shortcake, pot roast sundae and finished with a nice funnel cake. Whew... I'm a little stuffed now though, and ready to loosen my pants. Yep, just a good day at the fair. Goodness I LOVE to eat.

OK..... on to the REALLY good stuff!

I'm sure like I, these past few and upcoming weeks have been busy for alot of you. It will sure be nice to get back to a more scheduled routine after all of the hustle and bustle of summertime, but on the other hand, it is sad to give up that extra time with our little, or not so little, ones. My baby is going into kindergarten and I can hardly believe that this time is here already! It is a bittersweet moment, as I'm sure it is for most moms out there.

So, back-to-school! Although we look forward to our children learning and growing in academics... learning goes way past "back to school". Whether it is moments walking through a nature center, exploring insects in the backyard or reading a book with your youngin'. These are all moments of learning... growing. That was my true inspiration when creating Explore. Learn. Grow. There are so many experiences that give a meaning of "LEARNING". So whether you have a little one going off to school for the first time, a child coming off the bus or you would just like to record other memories, this kit is perfect for your needs! Explore. Learn. Grow. is seriously stuffed full of unique elements and papers for all of your hybrid and scrapping needs.

Quick and Easy Pages!!

Happy Friday everyone!

Well, summer is definitely on it's way to a close :sniffle, sniffle:, and if you're anything like me you have an awful lot of photos left unscrapped. Sometimes it just seems too overwhelming to try and finish up a whole vacation, while worrying about the all of the pages flowing nicely into one another without looking too match-e.

If those piles of photos are causing you "scrapper's block" then this Friday's new release, Enjoy the Moment- Quickpages, will have you creating in no time!

These are a quick and easy way to complete a few layouts - just open the quick page and add you photos and journaling. You can easily create beautiful pages in minutes! Think of how easy it would be to scrap your vacation!! This set of twenty (20) 12 x 12 quick pages were created by myself and me CT, and coordinate perfectly with "Enjoy the Moment" kit.

I have a FREEBIE for you too!! Make sure you visit all the way to the bottom!

A new do... 10inches off

My little baby girl has been growing her hair what seems like for years!! Every once in a while she would ask me if she could cut it for "Locks of Love". Finally I gave in and said sure, if that's what you want you may cut it. I am so proud of her, to have such a kind heart...and she's never looked cuter!

Ever So Blessed!

Morning! I am so excited to show you what I have out today!!
It is truly close to my heart!! It was inspired by my baby sister's new little one.
After he was born, I realized that I've never seen any religious kits out there. You know, a kit that focused on capturing the moments that mean the most to us, the greatest blessings. This kit is subtle, softly hued kit with delicate elements that would be great for baptism, christening, first communion, or wedding layouts. And this kit is packed FULL!! Aside from any religious moment it is perfect for so more more layouts as well. (check out the inspirations below)

AND If you get this Aug7-9th you can get it for 30%off too! ScrapMatters is Turning Two-- and the Birthday Bash Starts Today! So that means 30% off (10%CU)!! And a free gift w/ $15 Purchase! Isn't that great!! Oh, I have a freebie for you too!! Make sure to grab it below!
