Friday's HERE!

This week has gone by extremely slow but then I look back on the summer and it's gone by so fast I don't remember most of it. The girls meet their new teachers next week already and start school the following week. Where has the time gone??? I got a first grader AND a fourth grader and one that wishes she can go to school this year at age THREE. Well she will be three on the 9th. Woohoo! Milestones are upon us....

Okay so back to the reason we all come here, my scrapping.. okay maybe you ALL don't come here for my scrapping, maybe you just come here because you love me... :) I can hope alright! :)

So I got three pages done lastnight, I am so proud that I'm going along so fast on my projects, Yay ME! But on the other hand it has completely got me obsessed... I think I may have to do to Scrap-a-holics Anonymous soon. I can't get enough paper, enough goodies, enough chipboard... I'm addicted, I'm going crazy and I just... want... MORE! So I'm going on a scrapbooking budget diet... Meaning I spend nothing for a while until I use lots of stuff that I already have. Which I think will be incentive to use it all quickly so I can get more NEW stuff! :) I'm such the thinker, aren't I? hahahaha...

Okay so my layouts are....
Star of the show... I love all the SeaWorld pics, they're so BLUE and cute!
These are the new chipboards that I bought, love em'. I used my white pen to add in some more little do-dads...
Chipboard star, this was actually a funky polka dotted star but it was white on other side so I just flipped it over and used the white side. :)
I used my new Cricut Cartridge, Making the Grade, for the letters and the tags. Love it!
I just put the tags overlapping and added silver brads to hold them down. I added white backing so the letters wouldn't get lost in the blue background.

Making a splash! I had never been to SeaWorld so experiencing it for the first time with my daughters and their first time we loved it, we watching in awe! It was more than I thought it would be and I loved it! The striped paper had this polka dot pattern on the back so I used the scraps from the square to cut out the circles.
The main back paper is a dark blue.. it looks black here but it's a Navy blue, I actually got it in a Navy page kit... :)
I usually cut the circles with my fiskars circle cutter but I think it's a bit hard to do the inside circle on it. Sooooo I used my Cricut's Making the Grade Cart and used the little "o" in different sizes, this worked out much faster and easier! :) The arrow I just drew with a sharpie on the polkadot paper and I did it sketchy so you can see the lines, then I cut it out with my scissors. I like the turnout of it. :)

Don't forget, you can always click the pictures to make them larger. :) Have a good weekend... and don't forget, if you see one of these....


Just go ahead and buy it for me... I'll love you forever! PROMISE! I will still use my Kodak for smaller things but I reallyyyy want one of these for my venture into the photography world!

GREAT pages! I love them all! So, that camera is on your wishlist, huh? Maybe Santa will bring it to you??!!

WOW, those pages are amazing! You're so good. And you should definitely get the camera - even if you have to sell one of your family members to get it. Mine is one of my most prized posessions, and totally worth it!!
