Well, looky here I've manage three days of blog posts - in a row, nonetheless! I guess that tells you that either (1) I'm wildly productive & organized this week or (2) my house is an absolute disaster and I'm avoiding the mess by planting myself in front of a computer and writing blog posts. I think we all know the answer to this one, right?
But as promised, I'm here with a Thursday giveaway! But first, I wanted to share a page that I made with the SCT Delivered kit, Acorn Avenue. Autumn events are some of my favorites to scrap (back-to-school photos are one of the few times I can bribe my kids to actually pose!) and this kit is ideal for that. Here's a layout featuring my girl, who despite my insistence to stay young and stop.growing.up.already, started seventh grade this fall. Ack - my heart!
S U P P L I E S :
I had a hard time deciding what pattern papers to use from the kit, and in the end I opted to use most of them! I stitched them horizontally on the page making a nice contrasting backdrop for my enlarged photo. Then I used two of the kit printable cards for my title and journaling, clustering them with some of the fun embellishments.
For a bit of added interest, I also used one of the sentiment stamps repeatedly on the background cardstock. I'm not a very precise or neat stamper (kind of like my housekeeping!), but this kind of stamping is something I can do!
And now onto the giveaway! I have an extra copy of the new Scrapbook & Cards Today fall issue that I'd love to brighten your mailbox with. And yes, it's a self-serving giveaway because once a winner is picked, it will be one less thing to deal with in my oh-so-cluttered house. (Let's just hope it doesn't get lost in the mess here before I draw a winner. Ahem.) If you'd like a chance to win this issue, just leave me a comment and tell me your most-hated household chore. I'd tell you mine, but I think you already know IT'S ALL OF THEM.
I'll be back on Monday to pick a winner!
