ki memories blog challenge
Tracy Miller has posted the weekly blog challenge over at the KI Memories blog. I'm participating for the first time wheee! My layout features the only photo I was able to capture of my son on the first day of school - the stinker just didn't want his photo taken! :) I used the new KI Memories School Days line. The strips above the journaling are actually from the School Days Multi Stripe paper - such an efficient way to get strips on a page! I added my journaling through the printer directly on the School Days Penmanship paper. For fun, I added one of the School Days Patches for the title and the cute apple from the School Days Chipboard Shapes pack. Click on the layout to see it larger. Go play along!

more sneaks from kenner road
you probably don't know this about me, but when i'm working on a kit for a design team gig, i always make it a goal to try to use every piece in the kit at least once. i had a few bits that i hadn't used so i did another layout and a card last night. i didn't use one of the pieces of cardstock in the kenner road september kit, but everything else was used! yay me! click photo for larger view.

design your life
i did it. i signed up for design your life at big picture scrapbooking. i've been wavering back and forth, but cathy finally convinced me. ok so she didn't personally email me or call me to say hey celeste you should sign up. but she keeps posting layout sneaks on her blog that are just too compelling for me to handle. on top of all that my cathy-worship is unparalleled and to be able to learn from greatness - well i was sucked in. so let me know if you are taking the class as well - i'd love to be able to discuss it with you!
