it's a beautiful life

The past few weeks of my life have been filled to the rim with scrap adventures! First, there was the fantastic scrap-fest at my place last Sunday. I *LOVE* creating art with my best friends … I know that sounds so cheesy but honestly, there is nothing better than spending a day surrounded by stickers, adhesive and glitter ... chatting about nothing in particular ... and taking the occasional break only to eat the most delicious chocolate cupcakes (thanks Jennie!). It was such fun. While we scrapped upstairs, my parents were working hard doing renovations in the basement because .... get ready for it, people .... I'm finally getting my own scrap room! YES!!!!! No more adhesives in my sock drawer! It should be ready by mid-September, and I'm so anxious to transform it into the perfect little art studio.

Then, there was the incredible sale at Scrapbook Star ... 40% off one item of your choice. *happy dance* Ever since I started working at the store I've had my eye on the Making Memories precision trimmer but I kept procrastinating because of the price tag. But with my 40% off coupon it was totally affordable!
And last but not least, Jessica came over last night for one final scrap jam before school starts up. We worked on our projects late into the night, and I managed to get 4 pages done. Here they are ~
A page about me and my mommy. I used new papers from Making Memories and Pink Paislee, and some older Basic Grey border stickers.

This one's for the Scrap Mojo challenge ... we had to use the title to any song from the School House Rocks collection on our layout.

I'm finally getting around to scrapbooking my birthday photos from NYC. I used the following sketch to help me with one of my birthday layouts, and I'm so pleased with how it turned out:

That's it for my updates. I'll have some crazy exciting news to share on Monday, but for now I'll just leave you with best wishes for an awesome labour day weekend!

ooh I LOVE all your pages...I was trying to pick a favorite but I couldn't. I've been a busy bee too, but more so with yarn and baking bread. LOL, such a strange combination in print there.

A scrap room ! I know you are beyond overjoyed and rejoicing. Enjoy it dear.

I can't wait for the big announcement !
