Make it Monday - pinkWelcome to another Make It Monday!

You may be arriving here from Alice’s site where she is showing you how to have fun scrapbooking your breakfast!

It’s just a short blog circle today. Many of our usual contributors were heavily involved in Lain Ehman’s True Scrap PlannerLove over the weekend and are taking a well deserved break today!

As for me, I had some fun this week. It’s important to remember to have fun with your scrapbooking, right? It shouldn’t be all serious love stories to our kids – although there is definitely room for that too! Today I chose to tell the story of a funny little incident that happened when our children were away for a week at their grandparents.

Good Saturday morning to you all! Hope you have fun plans for today. It is a long weekend here in Canada, AND the last weekend before the girls go back to school.

(insert happy dance here)

What are your plans this weekend? Tonight we are heading over to friends for dinner – mostly so the girls can drool over their new puppy – and this afternoon we may hit a food truck festival. Other than that though, we are just going to soak up every remaining minute of the summer!

I have one last layout to share in my Wood Veneer Stash Busting Challenge. In case you missed them, Part I is here and Part II is here. You can also see how I incorporated extra wood veneer embellishments onto my already finished layouts from my August Gossamer Blue kits here.

For Part III I decided to try adding colour to some wood veneer pieces.

My August 2015 Gossamer Blue Kit Layouts

Posted on

September is here! Can you believe it? My kids are in their final week of summer so I have been taking advantage of MY last week of summer holidays to get as much scrapbooking, card making and general paper crafting done as possible. Our schedule around here starts to get pretty nutty once school’s in session!

I’m still working through my Gossamer Blue kit from last month but wanted to share with you what I’ve created so far. You’ve already seen this one which used the August 2015 kits as well as a lot of wood veneer bits and pieces from my stash. Here is a quick look at three more layouts that I’ve created from this kit.

#1 – Yes, They’re All Mine
