So much going on...

i thought things were supposed to slow down at the end of the summer, LOL!

brain started his new job and owen started football last week so we are trying to get into a groove with that. so from every saturday moving forward, i will be camped out on the football field cringing and cheering! here he is with his game face on.



i am super excited...terry from Creative Cuts and More called me and i will be a guest designer for them in september and then again in june or july! they have the best premade diecuts so make sure you check out the store. and they are having a blog hop tomorrow with lots of inspo and give-a-ways.

maggie called me this weekend, too and it was so good to talk to her again. maggie was the first person i really clicked with when i started finding my way around this online scrapping community and she brought me onto her digi team to do some hybrid a few years ago. with my marketing background, her and i would do a lot of brainstorming sessions, LOL! so when she called me asked me to join the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog team and help promote the site i could not have been happier!

i am so excited for these new opportunities that i have been given lately, i just wanted to share.


Here is a little mini matchbook journal i made with the October Afternoon papers and journal spots from the Serendipity Scrapbooks Just Enough Please kit for August. I used the Cuttlebug Houndstooth Embossing folder on here with the Core'dinations Whitewash.
