It is September 1st and I'm Feeling Scrapping

Welcome to September!  Can you even believe it is already SEPTEMBER?!  I can't. 


My kids have all gone back to school so I have all 5 kids in school  ALL DAY.  I almost don't know what to do with my time.  But I bet I figure it out pretty quickly.  hehehe

Since it is the first of September there are a ton of new challenges posted all over bloggyland and I was inspired to scrap this morning.

Today I have made two cards to share (so far).  The first one is for a challenge at sketches4all.  Jessica has a challenge posted to make a project with an arrow on it.  So, I figured that was easy enough to do right?  I just bought some yummy paper from My Minds Eye - Cut & Paste by Jen Allyson that has arrows printed right on one of the sheets.  Perfect!

But wait...where are the arrows?
Here they are...on the inside of my card. (check out that gorgeous paper!)
If you follow me at all you know that I am notorious for grabbing the scraps off my desk and making a quick card and this is exactly what I did here.  These paper scraps and the chipboard are leftovers from this layout I made for the September Sketches4all DT Challenge - Back to School theme.
The chipboard was plain and I sprayed it with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Teal and Primrose.  I LOVE these sprays so much.  They are luscious, bright, shiny, dry quickly and cover beautifully.  If you haven't gotten some for your own stash you should definitely go shopping for some now!  I got mine at Micheals.
Look at my silly kids! lol


I also made a card using the fun sketch challenge from 2 Sisters blog.  I combined it with a S4A challenge from Cheryl to use lace and dimension.
Okay, I'm still in the scrappy mood so I'm off to make something else.  Have a great weekend!!
Until next time...happy scrapping!
