Sprocket Sprout

I love being on the Punky Sprouts team!  This month we are lucky enough to have a product swap going on with Paper Trunk!  I had so much fun meeting up with the owner of Paper Trunk to do the actual swap...she is here in Oregon too.  We have a game going on at both the Punky Sprouts blog and the Paper Trunk blog...if you haven't seen it, you should check it out...prizes are up for grabs at both spots!

I used the newest member of the Punky Sprouts family...Sprocket Sprout.  Such a fun album with all it's different shapes!  I used 2 lines of Paper Trunk...Rockabilly and Socialite...because I couldn't pick just one!  You can read all about how I made this on the Punky blog!

Speed Scrapbooking!

I am a super slow scrapbooker!  It often takes me 3 or 4 hours to get a layout done.  And getting 4 done in a whole day of scrapping is quite an accomplishment for me.  I have been busy this week and my science assignment for Scrapdango's School's In challenge, got put on hold.  Yesterday I realized that it was due that night!  I had a dentist appointment in the morning and then a xc meet that I had to leave for at 2.  I started this layout a little after noon and finished with plenty of time to spare to pack up for the meet!  Considering that I cut out all those hexagons in that time as well...I was pretty happy!

The assignment was to use hexagons, have at least 30% of our layout be green and to use something botanical.

My friend Leah had done a strip of hexagons on a layout awhile ago and I made a mental note to try it and this was the push I needed!

Back to School!

It is back to school time for the kids, my teacher husband and me!  What it means for me is the Back to School event at Scrapdango!  I was so excited for this, this year!  Last year, I was their design team coordinator and therefore couldn't play although making up the challenges is fun too! :)

So far, there have been 2 assignments due.  The first was the PE class.  We had to have an action photo, a circle and show movement.  Extra Credit was to use the word team (which I did not do).

The second class was Math.  We had to have a visual triangle (my 3 photos), an actual triangle (my banner) and extra credit was to use another shape (circle).

And in case you are wondering...I gave up on the 30 Days of Photos.  September is just not the month for me to try something like that...I'm not sure what I was thinking! :)  When things calm down a there isn't soccer or xc every night...I'll probably try again!

30 Day Photo Challenge

I have decided to do this 30 day photo challenge for the month of September.  I realize the graphic says August but I'm doing it now! :)  I am trying to make this as fun, quick and easy as possible so the pictures may not be perfect, or even that great but I am determined to take each of these on the correct day!  If you'd like to join me, leave a link to your blog so I can see your pictures too!
