Summer Scrapbook Page Challenge at For Fun & One Lovely Blog Award


What a great challenge this week at For Fun! We are to create a scrapbook page of something we did this summer (now I know you all had to do something) not saying "Goodbye to Summer" but "Hello Fall".  The most recent activity in our lives this summer was the visit of our granddaughter Drue and her mother Brooke. We took lots of pictures, but probably like most of you, I printed them off to help Drue make a scrapbook to take home and the extras I put in a box to scrap later.  Well, I really haven't been into scrapbooking lately so I decided to try making a digital scrapbook page and I love the way it turned out.  At least I can read my journal box....cause my handwriting sure leaves a lot to be desired anymore...LOL
Not sure this says "Hello Fall" but at least the colors are fall.

All of the digi papers, frames, etc., are from Cool Scraps Digital and many are freebies. I've combined so many elements on this page from so many different designers that it's impossible to name them all, but if you are interested in digital scrapbooking or just digital papers, be sure you head over to Cool Scraps to see the beautiful papers and elements.

I sure hope you have the time to play along with us this week.  We'd love to see one of your scrapbook pages, whether it be handmade or digitally created.  Don't forget to hop on over to the For Fun Challenge Blog to see what great inspiration the design team have created for you.
Be sure to link your project to Mr. Linky at For Fun


A big thanks to Marie for this beautiful image for One Lovely Blog Award. It comes with a couple of requests though - you have to thank the person who gave it to you AND you have to list 3 things you like about yourself....
1) I'm independent but I'm also co-dependent (figure this one out)  LOL
2) Always too serious and conservative but I love getting out of my shell and in my "FUN" mode
3) I love being a wife, mother, grandmother - AND RETIREMENT
You also have to pass it on to 7 people so I'm passing this on to my most faithful and wonderful followers who never fail to leave me fantastic comments and inspire me to keep creating. If I've failed to mention your name I apologize, so grab this award, follow the instructions and please add it to your blog.
Lisa, Amelia, Mandy, Nightowl, Selma, Stepf, Marla

That's it from me tonight folks.  Hope you are having a fantastic week and the weather is beautiful where you are.  If you have the time to leave me a quick comment it will be more than appreciated.  I'd love to pop over to your blog and see what's new with you.
"Hugs" Granny (Carol)
