Gaaawwwk!  Ackk!  Gaawwk!  What is that you ask?  Oh, don't worry, it's just me choking.  I MAY have bitten off a little more than I can chew this week.  Don't perform the Heimlich just yet…as I think, with a glass of water and a little more time,  I'll be just fine. 

I had a VERY full load of classes and obligations this month.  I had my regular calendar of classes and I added to that, the Halloween collage , my Snowmen and Flakes class, work on our Camp Stamp In Oga and I also started the Stamps by Mail this month I was stretched a little thin, to begin with.  But in typical "First-Born" fashion, I don't often say…"no".  I was asked to do a scrapbook, and I added to the mix, a digital scrapbook for the Kettle Moraine Tennis Team.  We can let our kids down, now can we?  So, if you've wondered where I've been (no postings or monthly updates), I have been digitally scrapbooking for the last two weeks.   And before you ask, yes, it does take me longer to make ONE digital scrapbook BUT I was able to order 15 of them in a click of a button!  It really is a fun way to go, for the girls.  They are compact and will be a momento to cherish for years to come.   I closed up that project on Wednesday night and I was quite happy to get back to my paper and inks, just in time for my Layouts Class on Thursday night.  I know you are going to ask if I had ANY of the pages prepared for class.  Actually, NOPE!  you called it.  I whipped out 5 pages during the day on Thursday and here's the first to share. 

I used the Gently Falling stamp set.  I liked this set so much I bought two.  ON ACCIDENT!  I couldn't find it on my shelves and I panicked thinking maybe I accidently sold it.  So I bought it again.  But you can have this set at 25% off thru Oct 28th.  Stampin' Up! is celebrating our 25th Anniversary and this is the ACTUAL week that Stampin' Up! started so there's a little extra perk.  25 sets, 25% off.  Check them out here.  But hurry, every good party must eventually end, and this one ends Oct 28th.
