Back to school and CK Budget Issue Giveaway winner

Shhhhhhhhhhhh . . . can you hear it? Yep, that's the sound of QUIET, something I haven't heard in my house for the past couple of months. My girls started back at school yesterday (2nd and 4th grade . . . where does the time go??).  As much as I enjoyed having my girls home with me during the summer, I'm happy to be back on our regular school schedule and have some much needed time to myself.

Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner of the Creating Keepsakes Special Budget-Friendly issue. The Random Number Generator picked #2, which is Romy!  Congrats Romy!  I'll contact you to get your address.

Here's a closer look at a layout I did for the budget issue.  The article shows how you can stretch your scrap supplies further by sharing them with friends.  In this case, several of us used papers and stickers from a single Basic Grey collection, along with a circle punch.  We all came up with very different layouts.  Here's mine:

I cut the flowers out of the patterned paper and used them as my main page accent, and I used a circle punch to create a layered page border (accented with Shimmerz paint on the edges for a little sparkle).

I hope you're getting a nice dose of YOU time today!!
