Monday's Highlight: #selfie by Kristine

Fun Shape Templates 2 by Scrapping with Liz
"Well Read" Papers by Allison Pennington and Mixed Bag Elements by Etc by Danyale
I saw this page a couple of weeks ago in the SwL Facebook Group. It really stood out to me. I loved the deep blue with the pops of green and orange. I also love the touch of splatters, scatters and stamps behind the paper squares, it really draws your eye in toward the photo. The touches of stitches and strings are a nice touch. What a fun #selfie page! BTW - I'm horrible at taking selfies. I'm not sure you'll ever see a #selfie page from me, but Kristine sure got it right.

Remember to post your pages in the current album (I'll be posting a new one later on this week for September), and you could win  $$$ to my store!

New Monthly Calendar and Review Templates

Liz has three new template sets for our calendar topper and monthly review projects. All of these new releases are 20% off through Sunday, August 28, 2016.

2017 August Templates is the new set of calendar toppers, grid, and card. I love how there is a 12x12 page included here.

August Month in Review Template is a 2-page spread for scrapping a complete overview of your month. But of course, you can use them for scrapping events, or travel, or just about anything. They are perfect for people who want to focus on the photos.

August Insta Review Template is a new design for scrapping 24 small phone snapshots. The simple designs here really lets the photos shine, but also add just the right touch of embellishment.

Donna has been scrapping an embellished calendar grid each month.

Christine is catching up on 2012 photos! She captured a bunch of fun candid moments from the month.

Week 33: School, Bike Rides and Cousins

 Weekly Life Templates 9 by Scrapping with Liz
Memory Pockets Monthly August '16 Discover & Add-Ons Available at TLP
This week was full of activity. Lydia got a new bike for her birthday so we did a lot of bike riding. My oldest went to first day at her new co-op and is officially in high school! Where did the time go? We sewed, did some fun art projects and of course school was a part of all of it. Then we had cousins over to spend the night before they get back into their normal school routine. Then we had even more cousins over the next night. There was a lot of fun going on in our house all week.

I kept this week's page super simple. 1. Time. I didn't have a lot of time this weekend to scrap so I just put this page together really quickly. 2. I find that I really do like simple, especially for these weekly pages.

I was also reminded about why I scrapbook. My kids have been looking through our albums all week. They love it. They love reading their stories. They love seeing pictures of our old house, of old friends, of events they forgot about. They love when I tell them about a picture or event. It really brings it all together for them. They get to be reminded of how their story is unfolding.
