How do y’all like my new blog design? I’ve been hard at work giving the page a little makeover!
I know I am not the only mom out there who is excited that school has resumed, right? 🙂 With all of the kids (but one) back in school I have been on a scrappy roll lately! I just wanted to do a quick post to show a few layouts that were done for a couple of Issue Challenges over at Club CK. I’ve been busy keeping up with those, as well as getting ahead on my DT work for Frosted Designs and Challenge Me Happy. I am looking forward to beginning my new terms with these great challenge blogs. Here is some of my latest work that I can show right now:

I can not begin to tell you how much I enjoyed my day today!!! 🙂 I spent half the morning browsing my new addiction, Pinterest, then the other half of the day working on projects. With the baby due in only two weeks I had to get cracking on some handmade Christmas gifts. But before I could get to the gifts, I needed to get my December Daily started. I did one last year and it was really fun today to look back on everything we experienced. I decided to do the same thing I did last year, and that was to purchase a pre-made 8 x 8 Christmas scrapbook from Hobby Lobby, then add my own touches to it. It sure does save a lot of time!! Here is the cover and page 1 of my book:
My next project was to complete the teacher gifts. I made one a mini album, and the other a tag album. I used supplies by Little Yellow Bicycle and added a few bits and pieces of my own from my stash. I think they came out cute:
The last thing I worked on was a Christmas gift for my sister. I was inspired by this piece on Pinterest. Here is my take:
I have a few more projects I will work on tomorrow before I have to get back to my “real” work on Monday. I hope you all enjoy your weekend!!
