this week...

just a little of what i've been up to. this is my last week before we start school and i've been doing quite a bit of scrapping (compared to what i normally do!) while i can.

for a challenge over at Weeds and Wildflowers....
i made notebook covers for the kids i teach, hopefully it'll make the beginning of school a little bit more exciting!
and finally, a quick layout with a picture from my sister's graduation in june. i love how this one turned out!

scrapmatters template tuesday challenge

each week over at scrapmatters.com they host a template challenge. i've been meaning to participate for awhile and finally got around to it this week! the guidelines were: 1) use the template provided (duh!) 2) use a kit you've never used before and 3) YOU have to be in both pictures. i had a lot of fun with it!these pictures are from thanksgiving two years ago. at the time, i was living in richmond for training before i moved to mexico, but a bunch of my friends from training and i went up to stafford (where i was from) for the day. these friends are truly precious to me in a way that i can't even really explain. we experienced so much together in such a short time. and now? we're scattered across 8 different countries! i can't wait to see some of them in December for our debriefing conference when we all arrive back in the US!

Credits:
Everything from "Moments" kit by Summer Driggs (available on her blog for free!) except: flowers (from the Weeds and Wildflowers freebie kit "In Bloom") and Alpha ("Wrinkled Alpha," also from Weeds and Wildflowers). The font is "Pea Missy," available at: http://www.kevinandamanda.com/scrapbook/fonts/

Some of this stuff I've had for awhile and just not gotten around to using (these are colors I don't use often). I was excited to have a reason to HAVE to pull them out. I guess that's why they call it a "challenge!"

"Delightful" Kit

i recently downloaded the brand new kit from Weeds and Wildflowers "Delightful," and it just that! I'm having so much fun with it. It's full of bright colors, great textures and all sorts of fun. Hurry though, it's only on sale (20% off) for a few more hours. And no, I'm not getting paid to tell you that, I just love it that much!
The first thing I've scrapped with it is Becky's birthday. We had so much fun that morning. She has absolute NO IDEA we were coming to take her out to breakfast (she thought she was going out with her husband) and was SHOCKED when she came into her living room and there we were! Becky is one of those people who is constantly doing things for other, so it was fun to surprise her and do something just for her!

i've been busy!

i decided to change up the design for my coffee mug before i printed it out. i put it all together today and it looks great! i can't wait to take my coffee with me to meetings this week!i also printed out some note cards. i made one for each day of the week and plan to keep my prayer lists on them. aren't they fun?
finally, i've printed out a couple of psalms. i'm constantly writing down bits of scripture and have index cards and post it notes all over the place. i'm thinking maybe i'll eventually print out a bunch of these and make them into some kind of book? or maybe i'll frame them all over my house when i get to canada. who knows. for now, they're stuck in my bible and devotional book so i am reminded to read over them daily.

note cards

i created this notecard today for a friend's birthday. i ordered a set of 12 on shutterfly and am really excited. her favorite color is orange, and i think she'll just love them! i used the "let's connect" colab kit that i got from sugarplum paperie (although i'm sure it's available several places). it's such a fun kit! i can't wait to do more with it. don't you just love all the bright colors?
