I finally scored a day off!

Don't get me wrong, I have Saturday and Sunday off every week but today, I'm off! And my kids are all in school soooo, I'm headed to my scrap space to work on some projects that have been on my table for some time now. I finally got started on my new calendar/planner. Let's see, it's August so if I work quick enough I should have it ready by January! LOL! Just kidding. I'm hoping to have it done by next week. Here's a peek at my first two pages...

Since it's August my planner will start there but this is my January 2010 page. The top page is a mini-layout and I'll stick a photo of my son playing in the snow inside the Spellbinders Polka Dot Frame. January was cut from the Slice Calendar Design Card. The mittens and some of the snowflakes came from the FaLaLa Design Card and the other snowflakes came from the Seasons Design Card. Then, I used Words and Expressions to get the 'snow' and 'cold' and 'fun' came from the Fonts Design Card. For the frame I used some Core'dinations cardstock and after embossing it I lightly sanded it and the patterned paper is Sassafras Lass. I have lots of ideas for the other months and can't wait to get this book finished. I actually received one similar to this a few years ago from a friend and I've really missed it so I'm looking forward to having my organization back.

Check out Veronica's Pirate layout!

She used the Zelda Grand alphabet to create her title, which reads "On Saturday and Sunday I'm a Pirate". Her son has to wear an eye patch to help train his right eye and he didn't like it much until they told him he looked like a pirate! Veronica also added the Quickutz Pirate Ship and Paper Doll with Pirate Costume and the Boss Kut Treasure Chest, Treasure Map, Eye Patch and Hook and the Telescope and Sword. Doesn't the layout look awesome?!

Our friend PJ sent me this next layout...

She used the new Quickutz Bracket Border die to frame in her layout. The papers and stickers she used are from the Scenic Route Garden Grove collection. She used the Slice Travel Design Card to cut the large road sign and Basic Shapes 1 for the circles. I just love the colors and layers in this layout! Thanks for sharing with us PJ!

Tammy created this layout to document her son, Matthew's, years of pre-school.

She also used one of the new Quickutz Border Brackets for her layout. Tammy added the Quickutz Revolution Schoolhouse and a Copic Marker to darken the roof. Tammy used the Chicken Noodle font for part of her title and the little journal block from the Unity Retailer KOTM to document the name of Matthew's classroom and his age at the time of the photo. Look at his sweet little face!

Well, we're sure glad you joined us today and we hope you're having a great week! I have some AWESOME reader layouts to share with you Friday from last week's sketch plus an all new sketch. Enjoy the rest of your week and we'll see you then!
