Life is ZOOMING and some scrappy projects!

Life seems to be at an all out zoom right now. We leave for Disney in just a few weeks and I am planning for that, soccer always keeps us running and I am trying to work ahead to get my Christmas shopping well on its way so I don't get caught in the fuss of last minute shopping with everyone else.

Anyway I have found some time to scrap.

This month at Black River Designs I dove into lots of color! I made this LO using some shots from last Easter. I rarely work with these colors and it was fun to go a little "pastel". Of course I had to add one of Jenn's jotters from Creative Chaos. A layout is just not complete till I add one of her adorable little creations.

And this card...

I also made this LO of my boys and their cousin.

And a simple card.

Well this month's kit from I AM A Scrapaholic is soooo droooool worthy! The mix of Teresa Collins and Jenni Bowlin is fabulous. This is my darling niece Adrienne, is she not the sweetest.

I made this card for my son Nick teammate who was hurt in a game recently.

The kit at Dixie Pieces is awesome. The colors are amazing and they are the perfect papers to wrap up your summer pictures. Here is Nick loving the waves on his boogie board.

I made this card and matching envelope...I just loved the kraft colored envelopes included in the kit.

Last but not least...did you hear the news? Talk about a match made in scrappy heaven! Here is the announcement...

We’re excited to announce that American Crafts purchased Pebbles!

The great news is that American Crafts will continue to offer Pebbles’ current product line and plans to introduce new products over time. Pebbles' in-house design team will also join American Crafts, which means that you’ll be able to enjoy Pebbles’ simple, cute and fun style for years to come.

Be sure to keep visiting the Pebbles blog for the same great projects and inspirational ideas you’ve come to count on!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you enjoy your Columbus Holiday!
