It's late (for me, anyway) on a Sunday night, and I am watching football and enjoying the quiet of the house. Everyone is asleep and I have a few moments to relax and prepare for the upcoming week. Our fair break is over and that means that everyone heads back to school tomorrow. I have to admit...it will be nice to get back into a routine, and hopefully get the new puppy into a routine, too.

I did manage to get some scrapping done with week, and wanted to share before heading to bed.

This first layout was created for the September sketch challenge over at From Here 2 Scrapternity. This month's sketch is from a new favorite sketch site of mine, Sketchy Thursdays, and I decided to stretch the sketch over two pages. The pictures I picked were of Zack's very first varsity soccer goal. I was thrilled to get the pictures, especially since he's only a freshman (and let's face it, I've never been able to get a shot of him making a goal).

This next layout was create using the current Sketchy Thursdays GDT Challenge and the September Birds of a Feather Journaling challenge. I was really challenged with the colors, and pulled lots of different paper lines for this one.
Here is what we were asked to use as inspiration (btw...I just love the idea of the votive candles in the apples, in a wooden bowl!):

And here is the layout I created. I did a layout about my sanctuary...my scrappy desk.
This last layout is for the September Stash Challenge over at Birds of a Feather. I had SO much fun with this layout! We had to use our stash of alphas, and let me tell you...I have a TON of alphas. I used a Scrapbook Circle kit (I am in LOVE with Simple Stories) and had lots of fun playing with the title treatment. This layout was also inspired by a Sketchy Thursday sketch. This is a picture of the three kids on the first day of school.
Okay, I am off to finish watching the Cowboys vs. Jets (go Cowboys!!) and do a little shopping. I have my eye on some more Simple Stories products ;)
I hope you have a wonderful upcoming week!
