August is almost over????

Say it isn't so!  I never got around to posting my August wallpaper, but I guess better late than never.

Don and I finally made it back to the balloon festival this year.  Ollie went to the shore for the day with friends so we went to the early  morning launch without him.  We had to be there by 6:30 a.m. but it was well worth getting up at 4:30 to do it.  The balloons as always were beautiful.  It was super hot that day so it was good to walk around and get everything done early.  Then we took our time driving back and ended up having a really nice day. 

Work has been insane and upside down lately.  Seems like everything else too... just can't seem to find a good groove these days.....

Can't believe that school starts next week and Ollie starts his senior year.  Where did the time go?  It's sad to think I'll be taking the last of his "first day of school" pictures.

Ah well lots to get done, better get to it!

Still here .....

.... well sort of here.  Too many things going on and I'm just not keeping up these days.  Working on it though!

August 2010 ~ Scraplift Challenge

Join me at Digitals for this month's scraplift challenge! You can find the thread here.


I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. The weather here has been hot this year and it seems the summer is zooming by faster than I can keep up with. School is right around the corner and I'm not sure I'm ready to face Ollie's senior year yet.

Great layouts in response to last months challenge! This is such a fun challenge to run, everyone is so creative and I love all the different takes on the layouts each month.

This month I chose No Words Needed by mystampin. Ok, not only do I LOVE that she used my kit, it's wonderful how the kit looks like it was made for this photo. The best thing about this layout is all the layering of the papers and elements. It's gorgeous! There is loads of inspiration here!

You can find this layout here. You can also find her gallery here. Be sure and check out her gallery for one beautiful layout after another. I sure hope you'll stop by and leave her some love.

I hope you can find some inspiration in this layout to scraplift. Be sure to include at least three items by Digitals designers in your layout to be eligible for the prize.

When you've completed your layout, post it to the Scraplift Gallery, then come back and post a link to your page to this thread. This gives us all a chance to oooh and aaah over your layout. It will also help me to make sure that I don't miss sending out anyone's posting bonus.

Here is a preview of your prize this month.

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you do with this challenge!
