August's Tag


Well while I'm signed in I might as well as my August tag.  I found some where on the wonderful internet that Clown week or Clown day is in August and I bought the beautiful Le Cirque paper pack to do some layout about my Great Grandfather and decided to use it for my August Tag.  The other reason I did the Clowns and circus theme is because I hate to do what everyone else would do.  I like to go with the unexpected unless the expected is what inspires me. Like you'll see with next months tag.  And I really love how this tag came out and hope you enjoy it too.  I had to steal the picture from my friend Tabitha because I forgot to take a picture.  Only 4 more tags to go and I already have September and October done....But guess what I did...forgot to take picture so you will have to wait till Tabitha posts them for me in the group.  Oh well. Pin It Now!

Wow its been WAY too long!


Well this summer I was just creatively drained I guess.  Not much crafting for myself happened.  I took on a new role at my summer job that I thought was going to be easy, but proved to be a challenge.  I was the Arts and Crafts director for 3-5th graders which with my background should have been easy as pie.  I found and had great ideas but on a smaller scale.  Like I said it was a real challenge, but now with fall coming in fast.  I have the hopes of being able to craft and have some me time again in between my sub jobs and on the weekends.  I finally decided to wander into my craft room the other day and dust off my cricut and gyspy and some pictures and here is what I came up with.  Not too bad for not scrapbooking for probably about 3-6 months.  Nothing too fancy but I think it does the picture justice.  So the next adventure I have planned is a Close to my Heart Club with my bestie and some friends.  The first meeting is a couple weeks and there is a lot to do.  We are going to do one of my favorite themes Halloween (I can't believe its just around the corner).  I'm impatiently waiting for my order to get here with all my new goodies.  I'm hoping my cricut cartridge will be here.  Art Philosophy is such an amazing cartridge with 700 images which includes 3-D rosettes, two fonts, plenty of giftboxes and shapes to pair with your stamps.  I can't wait to play I will have new projects to post soon.  Probably Monday night or Tuesday.  I hope that you all enjoyed your summer and got through Irene okay.  See you soon!
