For me, the only good thing about Summer coming to an end is the start up of hockey season.  Cheering on our Winnipeg Jets is a favourite pastime of mine and Darwin's. Whether it's here, on tv at home or downtown at the arena it's the highlight of our day.  I love that it's something we love doing together.

The latest issue at Paper Issues Fan-atics encouraged me to pull out one of our photos from the last Playoff game and get scrapping.

How awesome are those puffy letters?  They are from a Dear Lizzy collection, but they go so perfectly with this bright bold Amy Tangerine collection. 

I just had to pair that fun Jillibean Soup File card with the design, plus the colours matches so nicely. 

I used American Crafts This to That 3D adhesive pieces to pop my photo off the page.

My design is based off of the October Sketch.

You can link up your take on the sketch here, and you link up to the current issue right here on the Paper Issues Blog.

Life has really changed a lot for me around here, as is evident by my blog.  It's not that I've had less to share, it's that there's been less time and energy to get it onto paper.  My days are full, and usually stressful, and leave me feeling pretty exhausted by the time I finally have some me time in the evening.  I have much to be thankful for, don't get me wrong, it's just a different season for me, and one that I am still trying to find my way in.
It's been so long since I've scrapped, that this felt really good to get on paper.  I have a couple more layouts that I managed to put together this past week.  I will share those soon, I promise.

There is always a lot going on over at the Paper Issues Friends and Fans Facebook page. Multiple challenges a month, pre-sale codes to shop at a discounted rate, and prizes up for grabs throughout the month.  If you haven't done so yet, I encourage you to hop over and become a member today.

As always if you're more in the mood for shopping than scrapping then don't forget to use code: SHERRI at the Paper Issues store checkout to save yourself 20% off everything in your cart.

I sure appreciate you popping in, and thank you for sticking with me through this new chapter. Pin It
