First Day Of School Meets Studio J

SO I love the first day of school pictures everyone always post.  All the cute signs, cute clothes and all those darling excited faces.  This will be my first year of sending a child to big school.  I am so excited I loved school but man I know I am going to miss my buddy.  I decided to make my own signs this year using Studio J.

I love Studio J

I think there is no question on my love of Studio J and how it has affected my scrapbooking and memory keeping.  This summer has been so busy and when I find time to scrapbook it has to be quick, organized and I need to get a lot done at one time.  Scrapbooking to me is relaxing when I can sit down and get a lot done.  I also enjoy doing it while watching my favorite shows.  These are some of my recent Studio J projects.

Getting back on track!

Hey all so I know several of you were following me during my week at convention. It was amazing as always. Close to My Heart wined and dined us as usual and then threw Mickey into the mix. It was AWESOME! I couldn’t wait to come home and get started back up and then, I opened my scrap room door. The crafting Gods threw up all in that room! Boxes, paper, markers, ink and kids toys everywhere. EECK! I had to start cleaning so I could get inky! Here is the before pick! 20140706-210337-75817523.jpg Notice my darling “helper”. I managed to contain her to one area! I have made a dent but I still have a long way to go. I did manage to set up all my convention goodies so you could see all the CTMH goodness!
