*Sniff, Sniff*

My littlest one started Preschool yesterday. And I must admit it . . . I cried. :) She wasn't afraid one bit, just marched right in there excited to begin this new adventure. I'm glad for that. It's much better than crying and screaming and needing me every second of the day. But I just had to shed a few tears at the fact that all my little ones are growing up . . . and there is nothing I can do to slow it down. :)

She had so much fun! She loves her teacher and can't wait until she gets to go back and "try it again" tomorrow. :D

I have a few scrappy things to share with you today!

First of all, you are going to want to stalk the Shimmerz blog on the 21st to see the New Fall colors . . . very vintage and very fun! There will be lots of projects posted that week by the designers to help you decide that you absolutely need them all! ;) Here's a little sneak peek for ya!


Second, Urban Anthology is getting ready for another Design Team call. WoooHOOOOOO! I have to say, I LOVE Kari's kits! If you love designing with a kit that has a mix of manufacturers, is loaded to the gills, and includes unique items, and lots of flowers and trims, then this call is for you! Watch the Urban Anthology blog on September 15th for additional details! :)

Finally, I have a couple of whimsical Nikki Sivils layouts to share with you today using the Boo-tiful collection. Can you believe Fall is just around the corner?! I can't wait! This is my very favorite time of year!

The ghost on this next page is actually a page from the Ghost Chipboard Album. I painted him with crackle paint and added some googley eyes, and now this cute little guy is holding my title. :)

Thanks for coming by!

    I keep meaning to ask you a question about printing your photos at home. I seem to remember a post you had several months ago about the printer and editing software you use..... Or am I dreaming? =)
