I can never ever get the link on the challenges to work to my photos on Simply Scrapping so I have to do it this way.
I was able to get a little mental therapy in today. Much needed. My life is on major overload right now.

Where did September go? We are getting our dose of Indian Summer.
The temp is in the high 70's and is supposed to hit 80 on Monday! We had 4 days of rain and temps in the high 40's. Talk about depression! Amazing what happens to your inner self when that big, bright yellow orb appears in the sky.
This is my submission for Simply Scrapping Crafts. October Week 1 Card Corner. Use Black, White and one other color. This was probably one of the fastest cards I have ever made.
***Exciting News*** I was chosen as one of the winners over at Christmas Cards All Year Round!! So happy and so surprised! It was the first time I entered the challenge over there. I'm pretty happy about it.
I played with paper today, not as much as I would have liked to because my Friend Elisabeth and her baby, Liam stopped for a surprise visit. I haven't seen Elisabeth in ages. It was nice visiting. Liam is getting so big!
I'll be posting more later. I have tons to post!!!
Thanks for stopping and Have a great night!!

These are photos from a cute paper bag album I created. I was surfing through really old blogs yesterday and saw this. I had everything here at home, it was pretty easy and took me a little over an hour or so. I have so many challenges to work on, but I really don't feel like it. I just want to do my own thing in my own time right now. I'm a little challenged out.

Yesterday and today I have been in great need of mental therapy. I made this cute little baby album yesterday. (Someday I will figure out how to post the pics on this blog correctly.) This is the cover of course, and the ones above it are pics of the inside. The album is held together with a BBQ Skewer and a ponytail holder. The size is an 8 x 8, but I think a 5 x 7 would work better. The ponytail holder is as stretched out as it will get.

Wow I can not believe how fast this summer has gone by. School starts next week for Danny. 4th grade! Time goes by in a blink of an eye. I'm in a melancholy type of mood today. Not sure why, not sure of exactly how I want to feel. Some problems at home need tended to and right now I'm not sure how to do that.
Over at Simply Scrapping Crafts we are posting our challenges differently. We are to link them directly to our blog (I think). I'm still trying to get the hang of it. Anyway here is my take on the Stamp & Scrap, August Week 4, Spotlight Challenge. (If you haven't been over there to visit yet, I suggest you go. Every one is so wonderful. Judy has the most talented design team out there.

Aren't this little ghouls adorable? This was made for the August Paper Scraps Challenge. Using your paper scraps create a card using at least 3 die cut images.

Tonight I'm watching my friend's baby. I haven't had a baby in the house since Danny was a baby. I tried baby proofing as much as I could yesterday. Hopefully all goes well tonight.
On Sunday I have to decide which of my scrapbook pages and cards I'm going to enter in the Lawrence County Fair. I also have to go through the premium book with Danny. He has a few things he would like to enter. Also, next Friday will be our baking day, then Saturday morning we will take our baked goods and veggies up to be entered. Last year Danny won 1st place with his "Ginger Cookies" They were supposed to be "Ginger Snaps" but something happened that they didn't snap and they were soft, so we changed the name and he won 1st place. Not too bad for a screw up.
Tomorrow Danny and I are going to WalMart, Costco's and somewhere to find a pair of tennis shoes. Hopefully it goes well. Danny's not real into shopping.
Well my lunch hour is over and I have to get back to work. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

BBTB2's Challenge for this week is to use an Owl in your project. I didn't have the cartridge they used, but used the Owl from Create A Critter. This was a perfect challenge, I needed to make a b-day card for an adorable little guy who is turning 1. Creat a Critter is slowly becoming a favorite cartridge of mine.
If you get a chance, stop over at Bitten By the Bug 2 and take a look at all of the awesomness that is there. That is one group of talented ladies. They never cease to amaze me.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

This week's challenge for BBTB2 was to use the Genie Lamp found on the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge. PPDU is one of my favorite cartridges. I'm not really happy how this card turned out, and didn't have time to re-do it. I made it for my sister-n-law's 50th birthday.
Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July. Thanks for stopping by.

The latest challenge I completed was for Wacky Wednesday. Transform a tin into some sort of summer kit. I didn't have a tin, but used a cigar box instead. I have a huge supply of cigar boxes. I seem to have an addiction to them. I do find uses for them eventually. I transformed a plain wooden cigar box into a travel kit for my son to use in the car. He loves it. I hope you guys do too.
This is the back of it. My pictures didn't post how I wanted them. Anyway, I laminated the tic tac toe board. I also laminated the bingo cards and hangman cards. A dry erase marker will work well, and easily wiped clean to use over and over again.
The inside. I love the pic on the inside. The building on the right is the Klafter Cigar Company, which is the brand of cigars that were inside.
All of the goodies:
