It's hard to believe that September is almost over. But, if you look at the beautiful mountains near our offices (the Wasatch Mountains) you can see the beautiful red and yellow leaves of fall and know it's the case.
Three of our design team members are excited to share with you their word of the month layouts:
Melissa Bell: Together
I got to spend quite a few days with these two cuties this month. They have some big changes happening in their life and even though they are too young to fully grasp the changes coming their way they have been troopers. In the photos above Josalyn was shedding some baby tears and Bryce immediately ran off and brought her back her binky. He knows just what brings her comfort. He then put his arms around her and they snuggled while watching some TV. They are both great examples to me of relying on those you love. I hope they continue to hold on together.
“Happy Go Lucky” was the perfect collection for my layout. It allows me to use a combination of what Bryce would call boy and girl colors. J To hand stitch the word together I first printed the word out in a font that I liked. I then used tracing paper to trace it and then pierced holes. I then put the tracing paper where I wanted my word to go and used the holes as a guide to pierce holes on my layout. Then stitch away! I definitely will be trying this again!
Suzanne Sergi: Back in Session
We actually started school at the end of August, but for our family September was all about getting "back" into routines. We enjoyed a pretty relaxed summer schedule, so it has taken us awhile to adjust to homework, sport activities, and new bedtime hours.
For this page I used the Rosy collection from the Lost & Found 2 collection. I think I have used these papers about three times already! I love the patterns, and especially the ones on the 6x6 paper pad. I was able to pull in the ruler sheet onto this page. I added a bit of tags to hold my title, that I typed on the computer. A few stars, and paper clips finished this back to school page.
We may not have our routines down to a perfect schedule, but the kids are enjoying the school year so far!
