Half Way Through September?????

I still can't believe it!!!

So I was SO busy last week I never had a chance to share my HAPPY SCRAPPY mail I got last Monday! It was my August kit from Dixie Pieces!! I was lucky enough to get the last kit!! Here is a pic from their website as I started using it before I took a pic! And I must say for the FIRST time my box wasn't damaged!! LOL!!! I guess the Post Office decided to not take their frustrations out on my box! So here is the gorgeous kit.

I have been busy creating away for a while now and then all of a sudden I just completely lost my mojo!! I don't know what happened, but I sat downstairs for 2 days now just staring at all my scrappy goodness and just can't find something to do!! Maybe I just need to do the BIG clean/purge I have been talking about doing for a while now??? I want to get rid of all the stuff I will NEVER use and have been holding onto for WAY TOO LONG now! As I type this I think more and more of how that may be a good idea to clean out my space and then I can take the time to properly pack my stuff for my LONG crop this weekend! Hmmm...I did FINALLY find the pictures to work on my house shape acrylic album I won from Dixie Pieces a couple months ago. I started working on this album, went out and bought things I wanted to do the album and then all of a sudden the pics that I was going to use were NO where to be found! So in my loss of mojo I decided maybe I needed to look through an old box of pics and scrap something besides the boys and guess what? YUP! The pictures were sitting right there! LOL!!

So my best scrapping buddy Robin and I are doing a MARATHON scrappy day on Saturday! We are going to be on Archiver's doorstep when they open in the morning and we will be there till they kick us out that night! I CAN'T WAIT!!! I am bummed I haven't been able to get to Hannah's to crop for a while now, and I am going to miss their big one on the 27th as it will be 2 days after Nicholas' surgery! So we are making our own scrappy day, but it won't be the same as Hannah's! I NEED a Hannah's trip!!

So speaking of Hannah's I won this HOME letter kit a couple months ago at a crop and I finally decided to do it the other day and I guess it turned out OK. I guess I pictured it to look a little different. I am going to make it a 2 sided decoration and the back I am going to use Christmas paper and it will say "Home for the Holidays" I just have to find the right paper for the job!


Here is a card I made for a wedding we went to. The card is on the top and the envelope is on the bottom. I am SOO mad my camera battery died and I didn't get a picture of the card on the gift! It was SOOO pretty! Oh well! I just hope the bride and groom appreciated it!

And here are a couple of my recent LO's I made that I can now show you. The first one is made with some of the supplies I won from Paper Patch Crafts.


Well that's all for now folks!

the Fall layout is AWESOME! I like the idea of making the "home" thing double sided - very clever!

I understand the "Mojo" thing too, but shhhhhh, don't tell anybody!

Thanks For Visiting!
