Welcome to the SG Blog Hop for September, if this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link.
This layout is of my daughter and her best friend enjoying a day at the park by our house. I used mostly The Pier line by Crate Paper. This is such a beautiful line of papers, it makes me wish that I would have taken more summer photos so that I could use more of it!
I am so not ready for summer to be over, but I do like that my kids are back in school and our life is scheduled again. I complain a lot, but I actually enjoy being busy with all the kids activities, especially when I have large chunks of time to myself when I can get everything I need done during the day. Hopefully soon I can get myself caught up enough that I can get some scrap therapy in!
For this layout I used sketch number 12 from the Scrapbook Generation sketch book One on One. I am loving this sketchbook right now. The sketches are all for layouts with only one photo. This is generally how I scrap, so it is working out great for me. There are also full color photos of a layout done with each sketch. I think the photos make it so much easier to decide which sketch I want to use and what paper line will work well.
You can find the SG sketches in their books and as downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.
Next on the hop is Allie - http://magicalmesses.blogspot.com, leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store. The winner will be draw on September 9th, so you have one week to leave a comment.
