Scrapping In Between Back to School Madness...

Yep, it's that time of year again... I've headed back to school. Kids aren't back until Thursday, but I've been busy preparing the room and all my materials for my lovelies to join me in a year of serious learning! :)  As always, there's something new I need to get a handle on, and this time it's in the literacy area. A few of us at school are taking a new strategy on, so there's been a bit of pressure with that. Wish us all luck as we work to figure it out!

Luckily, I've had a bit of time to get a little crafty. Lynn designed the sketch for the SCRaPDANGo newsletter and I created this LO for it...

And here's Lynn's original sketch...

I was just dying to try out some rolled paper accents, but WOW! I need to see if there is a simpler way to do it. I'm also wanting to make a card or two with this sketch. Just inspiring for me there, I guess. :)

I have another project or two at my table, so I hope to get back to those before too long. All depends on how much I can get ready at school though... *sigh*

One last thing before I go... I am putting together a great pile of scrappy goodies for a wonderful back to school giveaway! I have to get a pic of it all (and make sure I can afford the shipping!) then post it up officially! Be sure to check back VERY soon!

August Dango Reveal

Can't quite believe that August is half over... Several friends at church were asking me how long til school started. I just covered my ears and did my little, "Lalalalala... I'm not listening to you!!" dance. So, no, I'm totally not ready to go back. But the sad truth is that I'll have to go back, and probably this week at least for a day... *sigh*...

At least I was finally able to get some scrapping done. I'm also proud of myself because I think, if I counted right, I can double up 3 of my projects for other contests and calls! Wahoo! It's not often that it works out that well!

This month I got to work with the Sugar kit with Echo Park. They are a pretty new company and so far I am very impressed with their papers. Lots of great colors and designs. They are definitely a new fav manufacturer! :) I was also able to get some of my Disney pics in as well! So here we go...

Chasing Characters (using the current Sketchy Thursdays sketch)

Blessed (a PageMaps sketch)

Picture box (using this for all my pics I'm currently going through for projects!)

Thinking of You butterflies card (using the current Sassy Lil' Sketches card sketch)

Plenty more I'd like to take care of before the month's over, but we'll see how I do. Apparently, I have a full-time job that is about to resume! :)
Hope to see you again shortly!

Gotta Try and Win!

Yeah, I know... I really should be blogging my own stuff. We had a whirlwind vacation that I'm still recouping from, but HELLOOOO!! Wouldn't you want to try to win these fabulous goodies?? Well, you can't, 'cause they're MINE! Ok, fine... go over to Scrap the Boys and try, just try to win! (see if I'm your friend anymore!)
I'll head back later to give some updates. I'm busy blog surfing and TOTALLY need to get some scrapping done!
