October Already?!

Happy first day of October (ouch, it pains me to even type that).

I'm starting to wonder if I will ever feel completely rested ever again.  September has already come and gone, and here we are well on our way to true Fall like temperatures, windy days, and Thanksgiving right around the corner (well in Canada anyway)

It has been a busy and tiring start to the school year.  I feel tired so early these days.  It's 9:30 pm right now and I am ready for bed.  Blogging as not been nearly as often as I'd like, but I'm trying friends.  I have several layouts completed for DT assignments, and I'm all caught up with my Moments In Between Album, so I really do have work to share with you, it's just the blogging about it that is hard to fit in.  I hope you'll bear with me.

I received Shelley's gorgeous flair buttons the other day, and cannot wait to start incorporating them into my pages.  I started with my first one this past weekend.  Remember the quick trip to Minneapolis to watch the Vikings play, that I told you about here?  Well I used the September We Are Family Kit from Scraptastic Club to scrap it out.

The Button is from the Go, Go, Go set at A Flair For Buttons.  Super cute right?  The set is actually a travel set, but worked perfectly for my sports themed page.
Used my EK Sucess Label Maker and some of the Teresa Collins Family Stories embellies here.
Added a little more dimension to the page by layering and popping this little "true story" icon off my page with Pop Up Glue Dots.
Totally broke out of my mould on this one.  What started as a clean grid with 4 2x2 photos ended up being way more fun and festive than I had anticipated, totally fitting to the theme.  There's a lot of journaling, I'm not going to retype it here as I usually do.  You can click on the photo to enlarge it if you're interested.  It's basically the story as I described it in the post a few days back.

Thanks for stopping by today friends.

Love how you let the LO take you from simple grid to fabulous (not that a simple grid isn't fabulous, too). But I just love how you incorporated the tickets and snapshots of the day--ooh and that strip on the right is a fun design element. Love your stuff!
