Only the second year of "back to school" shopping, and I'm already fed up with it. My local Target, store 0001 (yep, where it all began), is a popular one and sells out of everything! I am not sure why a Second Grader needs 48 pencils and why they must be purchased up front all at once, especially considering they are not going into a community pile... Who knew pencils would be such a hot commodity to sell out at a Target?! L O L !
Back to the regularly scheduled programming... Here is another layout I did as a guest designer for A Walk Down Memory Lane. It is an LSS serving the Northwest Iowa, southwest Minnesota, and southeast South Dakota area, but of course everything you can find in the physical store is also available online.
It's so rare to get a photo of the two of us together, and it's extra awesome that we were all dressed up for the wedding. We had to look decent as the parents of the Flower Girls! lol. Anyway, I experimented a little with the background of this layout. I used a Crafter's Workshop template: numbers collage and misted a cardstock with Studio Calico Mr. Huey. The result looked more interesting than a plain cardstock background, so I will give this a try again another time! For that matter, I think I will be using the same photographs in the future as well. Reuse is good right? :)
This past weekend I began a major project to clean and organize my scrapbook room. A friend of mine came over to help me by taking all the stuff I have decided to shed home with her. I told DH that I would like to reduce my stash. He said, "It's like subtracting from infinity..." So far he is right...
