October kit sneak peak

It's that time of year (already??!!) when the mornings and evenings are starting to get cooler, the leaves are changing color, the sweaters are making their way to the front of the closet, and the kids are starting to ask for hot chocolate instead of lemonade. I LOVE this time of year for all the beauty and enjoyment it offers! October's kit has helped me get excited for this season as well - the beautiful colors, patterns,etc. Without further adieu, here's a little sneak peek for you to check it out for yourself...

Today's first sneak is brought to you from Shemaine:


And another from MaryAnn:


Stay tuned for some more sneak peeks this week and the full kit reveal on Monday, September 26th!

September Challenge--Journaling First

Hello :) Do you ever work on a layout and find yourself short on journaling space? But you really want to tell the whole story?
Well, this month's challenge is for you! I thought it would be a good idea to write out journaling first and then design the layout around the journaling. After all, scrapbooking is about telling our stories :)

Here are some examples of the design team's take on the challenge:

We'd love to see your take on this month's challenge. Just leave a comment here with a link to your layout, or post your layout in the challenge thread on the MB. You have until October 9th to show us your work. There is a great prize package involved ;)

Happy Storytelling!
