Not gonna lie, letting go of August has been an especially tough one this year for me...saying goodbye to carefree Summer days, & saying goodbye to my girls each morning as they both head to full-day school:
A new life-phase that is bittersweet...trying to take it all in, to be patient with myself & my kids while we navigate this new daily schedule together. Part of me is jumping up & down with the thought of all this more compartmentalized time, & part of me realizes that for REAL I don't have little kids @ home any more; Time keeps marching... They DO look adorable in their little uniforms, though, don't they?! :)
In scrappy news, I'm looking forward to more regular posting here on the blog. To start, here is Get Picky's gorgeous August Inspiration Challenge:
I LOVE scrapping with yellow, but somehow rarely do, so I decided on a monochromatic layout, to complement the blue sky in my beach photos:
Taking inspiration from the center photo of flourished white flowers, I added the large white doily & the wet-embossed yellow swirl stamp:
With a cue from the scattered-petal photo, I added scattered medallion circles & yellow flower buttons:
Man, I wish I were back at the beach!
