Trish always has such cool things to share that I'm a little nervous about living up to her reputation! I mean, isn't Trish's blog the blog-of-all-blogs!!! But I'll give it a try! ;) Here is a little tidbit from me for today!
I admit it. I'm a dollar-store junkie. I get excited about finding things for a "deal". It's pathetic, I know. But I do! Each Fall when the school supplies start to make their way to the shelves the one thing I MUST stock up on are desk calendars. Yep! Good ol' dollar store desk calendars! Let me tell you why . . . I LOVE to use them as a work surface on my scrap desk.
I flip the calendar pages over and use the plain white back to scrap on. I love having a place to test stamps on, scribble down notes, try out titles, and sketch down layout ideas. I also use the right-hand side to make a running list of all of my DT assignments as well as magazine submission dates or challenge due dates. I'm such a visual person and this system really helps me keep track of everything that I want to remember. If love having those little check boxes in plain view! When the top sheet starts getting too messy or crowded . . . I just tear it off and there is a fresh sheet to work on. LOVE THAT!
Finally, I'll leave you with a recent page I made using the July Work In Progress Main Kit.
I took this picture of my son recently while we were on a picnic. Even though I already scrapped the picnic itself, I LOVED this individual shot of my son and wanted to use it again to document the nickname my husband has recently given him. :)
Everything is from the July kit except for a few clear buttons and some Jenni Bowlin Kindergarten Rubon letters from my stash. I punched the circles from the Teresa Collins Travel Tags & Words sheet to use as page accents.
See you next time!
