Well...another month has just flown by! Things are looking up for us...a new job and new challenges!

On a personal note, I want to thank those who have been praying for us that we FINALLY hear word from my DH's new company...we've been waiting for several months (talk about pins & needles). But I'm lucky to have a DH who always have a backup plan and a steady mental will! LOL!!

My challenge was to submit to yet another design team (DT) call and didn't do so well! Oh, well! Life goes on, right?! LOL!! But the positive thing about these calls is I do get pages done! So I thought I'd share some of my submissions to you all...what do you think?

This was an altered CD of my son's first day of middle school...I followed him to the bus stop (to his great dismay - LMBO!!!) and took these pics. This is before I put pages on the CD and then strung them on Stemma ribbon.

Stemma had these great word PP and I used "Family" for our family vacation page. This particular one is of Mt. Rushmore. The journaling tag is tucked behind the picture of the "boys" which I inked the edges and doodled on the corner. The photo corners were painted with Ranger Ink's new paint that is a MUST HAVE item!!!!!!!!! LOVE their stuff but this one is definitely a best seller!!!

These pictures are of the cousins hanging out at Cantigny Park (Wheaton, IL) during the 4th of July picnic. LOVE this peaceful! I cut parts of another Stemma paper and used it on the pretty blue Stemma PP. Popped a couple of the flowers out with foam dots...never thought to have flower accents to the boys' layout! Heehee!!!

I have classes going on at Frozen Memories (FM) this month! One of them is this Saturday AM (kids are also welcome!) and it's a Halloween theme! We're going to be decorating a bronze color pail so that you can fill it up with goodies! It's very cute! I hope the store uploads the picture sometime in the next couple of days! I plea senior moment! I forgot to take a picture....maybe when I go today, I'll bring my camera! So here's my schedule:
