So, how are you doing? Are you still taking your pictures everyday, but a little behind on scrap booking them? Me too! It is definitely a challenge!
You have five more days to take pictures and then you have two weeks to finish your book! Because on Friday, September 16th we will have our Wrap-Up Party from 6pm-10pm for those of you who are participating in the 100 Days of Summer/Project 365 Challenge.
You can put the finishing touches on your pages, visit, share ideas, have some refreshments and vote on the best album for the Grand Prize from LUG! If you are unable to attend~please drop off your book so you still have a chance to win the Grand Prize that evening.
You are also invited to submit a favorite layout of your own for an in store contest too! Your 12 X 12 layout will be displayed in the store until Sept. 30th and customers will vote for them. The prize will be a NEW Simple Stories KIT!
Here’s some of my pages from my vacation in Saskatchewan. My nephews Kian and newborn Logan feature prominently. I am using Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer and We R Memory Keepers pocket page protectors.
Simple Stories has two new collections which we have in stock now! Baby Steps is adorable with blue, pink, grey, yellow, green and brown featuring a vintage look and balloon and carriage motifs. Here are some great layout ideas from Simple Stories http://simplestories.typepad.com/simple_stories/
