Anyways, here's my (almost) last spread for September.
Okay, with this spread, I used my September Citrus Twist main scrapbook kit. I don't know what it is about this month's kit, but I haven't been that inspired to use it, so I'm using any project as an excuse to "kill" this kit. My October kit is still sitting in it's box and I'm itching to use it! But I want to try to use as much as September's kit as I can.
Complete side note: I need to get better at telling stories using pictures that remind me of certain things, triggers memories, etc. I think that's what has been a barrier for me. I feel as if I don't have good pictures to scrap or pictures that tell a story, but I have a stack of photos on my table! I need to channel my inner Shimelle and scrap photos that trigger a memory or something like that.
I purchased the October Add-On stamp, which you can see an image of above, and it's all about food. I needed a stamp like that because I document a lot of food and meals. This stamp set will also come in handy with the holidays coming up. Yum, holiday food....
Look, I made a filler card. From scratch! I love that patterned paper from Carta Bella's Hello Again collection. This patterned paper was in the CT September kit. I don't think I used anything other than this kit, except for the gold triangle washi, yellow alphas, and the orange/white labels. It was definitely easier to complete this spread working from a coordinating kit. I don't mind putting together my own kits, but it takes me forever going through my stash. Having it already done is so much less stressful.
Don't forget, you guys have until Wednesday at midnight to link up your take on the Sweet & Kelster blog series Halloween challenge. Details can be found here. There is a $5 Two Peas in a Bucket gift certificate for the winner!
