A Million Memories September Kit projects

Here are a few of my projects using the fabulous A Million Memories September kit. I know I say this every time, but this kit was so much fun to work with!

In honor of my girls starting school today, I did a layout using pictures from the first day of school last year:
I added some real school supplies, including a ruler, paper clips and a No. 2 pencil.

Here is a family layout:
The journaling says: Sometimes I complain about our small, old house. I often wish we could move to a bigger and newer house in a more family-friendly neighborhood. But I am grateful to be with my wonderful family and to have a roof over our heads. I know without a doubt that home is wherever we are. The photo was taken by Melissa Walker-Scott.

This next project is a little wall hanging I made to hold my house and car keys. Now I'll always be able to find them . . . assuming I remember to hang them up in the first place!
I bought a plain wood plaque from Michael's, painted it, then attached the hook. Actually, my husband attached the hook for me because that's a "manly" kind of job (well, not really, but I like to involve him in my crafty projects whenever I can). These cute little Maya Road chipboard houses were included in the AMM kit, and I added the little felt sun and bling.

Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog! They brighten my day!

Stacy, your projects never disappoint! I love the use of school supplies on your back to school LO!

I can certainly relate to how you feel about living in a small house, but like you said, home is where your family is.

That wall hanging is too cute!
