Raise your hand if you said 'No, Melanie, because I have a life' *wink* Well, either way Hello Thursday is here and we have some great giveaways for you today on our personal blogs. So, keep checking over there to see if we have been given the green light from PC yet.

Obsessed Scrapbooking

 Today's post is a layout for my son's book that I finally made. I am over a year behind currently on my son's book. How can I run two paper crafting blogs and still be behind? Anyway, I used the Locker Talk which is perfect for any school layouts that you need to make for your kids!

I used October Afternoon paper.
I cut this title out at 3".
This is a sticker from the paper pack.
I cut these book out at 3".
'kindergarten' was made using letter stickers from the paper pack.
 Thanks so much for stopping by! Make sure you check back in tomorrow and see what awesome thing Joy has for you!

Don't forget to check out our blogs today to see our Hello Thursday projects. We will post everything as soon as we get the green light from PC!

It is so important to capture these special moments. I met someone the other day and she said she it too busy to take pictures. I am not normally pushy; however, I said make time. You don't have to scrapbook the pictures, just take the pictures. I don't have any pictures from when I was young and I miss them.
