It really true that summer is over once Labor Day has passed. We’ve been having rainy, gloomy weather here this week! All the better to get into mood for Christmas. Yes, it’s time to get working on my 2012 calendars! This year I have not been doing well – I’ve only done one page throughout the year! It’s time to catch up, and I took advantage of this week’s Tadpole Tuesday and Wibbit Wednesday sale items at The Lilypad to do just that. 🙂
I know I will be using these borders a lot!
I made the September calendar topper with these gorgeous projects, in addition to some of this month’s BYOC goodies:
For my next page, I used some other great templates by Amy Martin and adorable elements by CD Muckosky:
I modified this page to be my October calendar page. 3 down, 9 to go, plus the cover! 🙂 Finally, I also used these other goodies on sale:
Check out this alpha, I.am.in.love!!!!!! It comes with a brush file too, and it is a must have, especially at this sale price!
I scrapped another birthday picture (I thought I was done scrapping my birthday, but I am not even close! 🙂 ).
I’ve been having a good weekend so far, lots of relax and scrapping time. 🙂 I finished scrapping my birthday pages using many of the new BYOC products:
Frame, flourish, stitched paper and stars from Today by Designs by Lili
Spray paint from Rock It by Emily Merritt
I can’t say I am happy about having turned 30, but I’m trying to take it in stride. 🙂
I guess it would be pretty easy to let myself wallow in thoughts about how fast time is going, how many things I was hoping to get done before turning thirty, how different I was hoping my life to be. But why bother? I am happy with where my life has led me so far. And this year, for the first time in my whole life, DH has managed to take some decent pictures of me on my birthday (he says it’s because of my beloved 28mm lens 🙂 )! There are good things to come.

The weather is still warm, but it does feel like summer is over already. I want to enjoy the long weekend as much as I can!
It’s BYOC time at The Lilypad, and this month’s BYOC has such a pretty palette!
And here’s what I have done with it so far!

I hope to have more time this weekend to scrap a bit more with this BYOC, because it is too gorgeous to pass!
September has arrived, and Mari Koegelenberg has some great new products out today!
I am completely in love with these wood papers!
Here’s my page (I’m back to scrapping my mom’s album. Well… here and there! 😉 ):
