September Sharing From the Heart Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Blog Hop!  You should have arrived from Kristine's blog.

This month's blog hop had several options.  I chose a fall theme.  I had every intention of creating cards, but time has not been my friend lately.  I spent all weekend finishing these Back To School layouts and decided to share them for the blog hop.  I used Typeset papers and the following stamps: Blue Ribbon, Vintage Type, and the stamp set included in the Typeset Workshop On The Go.  I also threw in a couple Milepost shapes, Basic Assortment buttons, hemp, and several cutouts from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. The letters are from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  

This first layout is B's first day.  The smiley happy photos are from the first day.  The ones in front of the rock we took the second day because we didn't have time the first.  He was NOT happy about having to take the pictures, as you can see.

Now head on over to Diana's blog for more fabulous artwork!  Happy hopping!

If you are local, I am hosting a Scrap Club Preview Night next Thursday evening at my house.  We will be making a layout with the above Typeset papers.  You'll also be able to preview upcoming workshops, and sign up for the next round of Scrap Club!  The cost is just $5 and I'll provide snacks and drinks!  Contact me for more details :)
