From the August product release, I’m especially excited about the new All That Glitters Card Kit (I’ve ordered some that will be arriving tomorrow–YAY!) and its 170+ EXTRA PIECES because I TOTALLY LOVE creating more from the great kits Creative Memories sells.

This month, the Creative Life Scrapbooking team decided to take Creative Scrapbooker magazine’s Sketchy Challenge and make layouts based on this circle layout sketch, but with a twist: stash busting only!

Once I had that thought, I LOVED the process of creating this page! (And while I was journaling on the page, I even got teary-eyed because the people on this page are so special to me, so clearly this was an important story for me.)
