Project Life & Happy {inter}National Scrapbook Day

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

I've been looking forward to this day for months. It isn't that I'm going to be doing a whole lot, but I do hope to get some scrapping done and to hop around to a few different places to catch some sales. I've been saving my Paypal dollars for just this occasion. Jessica and Kennedy went to the beach, so I am actually free to do whatever I want. {insert shock face here}

And the fun part is that the blog hop falls on the same day this month! And Kristi was sweet and didn't let me forget about it this time. I scurried to put my week together. I'm not caught up (at all), so I just chose a random week so I could get something done. I didn't have enough pictures. Usually I have too many, so this was a week that was harder to fill.

My Project Life isn't off to the start I thought it would be. Last year, I had more going on, and I still completed more pages than I have so far this year. I think part of it is just school. And life. LOL. Excuses, excuses. I need to make time to do it. Like to set aside some time on a Saturday evening to work on things after all of my CT stuff is done for the week. Must.make.time. Must.make.time. Must.make.time.

Anyway, this month's BYOC at the Lilypad had me swooning. Almost everything I used was from that (aside from the stitches and page pockets). I didn't opt for a lot of embellishing because I had way too much journaling. Yikes. I always struggle with that whole balance. Anyway, here is what I got done today.

I LOVE the color combination of the gray, teal, and yellow. Beautiful pages!
