Welcome to Make It Monday!
Today we are sharing some of our typical family favourite Fall/Autumn activities. You should be coming from Connie’s site where she is sharing a fun fall banner! I just love her banners, don’t you? Check out all her gorgeous banners in her Etsy shop. She also makes some super cute stickers for planners that you’ve really got to see!
As for me, instead of sharing something “expected” I created a scrapbook page about my youngest daughter’s summer soccer camp. I know, I know, I said summer camp! But to me, to my family, September, going back to school, the coming Fall, all means one thing.
The start of soccer season!
As I say in my journaling, Christine was given her choice of camps to do during the first week of summer holidays this year, and she chose soccer camp. She’s been attending this particular soccer camp since she was 4 so is familiar with the coach and the structure of the camp. But this year big sister Paige was off doing her own thing so Christine was all on her own. No problem! She had a blast and even fell in love. I kid you not! Doe-eyed, big sighs, fits of giggles type love.
I’m not going to survive her teen years, am I?
I’m still using my August kits from Gossamer Blue but did grab a sheet of blue ombre patterned paper from my stash for the background. The full sheets I had remaining just weren’t the right colours.
When I was looking through the stickers and other embellishments for little bits and pieces to add to each cluster I suddenly remembered that I hadn’t printed off the exclusive printable sheets yet. Stupid, right? The yellow journaling spot above and the yellow camera in the previous photo were taken from that sheet.
Short and sweet post today. Tomorrow is BACK TO SCHOOL DAY in these parts so I’ve got a lot of last minute preparations to see to. Hope you have a wonderful week!
Now you’re off to Alice’s site where she’s showing you how to transform sewing from a fail to a win, and sharing the best sewing cheat for scrapbookers! Can’t wait!
