August is quickly coming to an end. Pretty soon September will be here and my son will go back to school. We found out his teacher's name today also discovered that his friends from Kindergarten aren't in the same class as him. Boo Hoo! Ahhh well I'm his Mom it's my job to worry but I know he'll do great! I'm looking forward to taking those back to school photos. I have made a goal by the end of September to complete a least a few layouts from Tyler's preschool and Kindergarten years as I have not done one school related page ever! It will be a fun theme to do! If any of you have some school inspired pages to share with me I'd love to see them please e-mail me at email@example.com. I hope to do up some school themed files in the process so please share any ideas you have for them too. Thanks!
Now for the Frugal Friday special. For today only you can get my Stick Pins with Fabric Cutter file for only $1.00 hurry though the price will expire at midnight EST today 8/27/2010. I designed this file because many scrapbook papers remind me of fabric. Also, I loved the look of stick pins poked through fabric but hated the idea of a sharp point appearing on my scrapbook pages and cards. So I figured if I could replicate the look in a cutter file with paper then that would be wonderful! I hope you agree. Click on the words above the preview to purchase the file. But before you leave please check out some project by my CDT.
Stick Pins With Fabric
Aussie Caz has been on a creative streak again. I will share two projects with you today and then one more in a few days.
Stick Pins with Fabric file and Card Base 1 file. Don't ya think! I love the colors she chose and what a great idea to turn the card base file on it's side. For the pin Caz cut out two of the stick pins in gold paper and glued them back to back to resemble a real pin. Next she punched two holes in the faux fabric and slid the pin through. It looks so real! I just love it! If you'd like to duplicate Caz's card you can find the card base by clicking on the words above the preview.

Card Base 2
Card Base 3
Next up Caz has another fabulous card to share.
I just love the bright colors and that glittery hummingbird! I love that ribbon too! As you all know I'm a sucker for ribbon. I think it would be a fun challenge to pull out a piece of ribbon and design a card completely from the colors in that ribbon. Hmmm....maybe one of these days I'll post that challenge. After my craft room is organized! Ahhh it seems so funny to say that! I do love having my own space but hate figuring out where everything should go! I love watching that TV show Mission Organization...wish someone would come and do my house! How about it anyone want to come and visit?
Shaver's Creek Environmental Center a few weeks a go. It's a wonderful place! They have various birds which were hit by cars or injured in some way and they keep them safe and take care of them. There are plenty of wooded hiking trails and a little nature interactive room with learning games for the kids to play. The kids really like it there. So I thought I'd share a few photos with you.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
