inside out...

woohoo, October is finally here! I love the change of seasons and I am so excited to feel Fall in the air...the mornings are crisp and cool, the mountains are colorful and bright with leaves, and I am anxious to start wearing cozy sweaters adn drinking hot chocolate in the mornings. I have had some of my autumn decorations out for a few weeks, but tonight, I'm getting out the Halloween decor - I can't wait to bring Halloween to our house - inside and out!!

And speaking of inside/out...I was invited to be the guest designer at Scrapbooking from the Inside Out this month. The kit for this month is colorful and happy - full of great products from American Crafts, Scenic Route, Tinkering Ink, and it was a lot of fun to work with. This month's theme is "JOY," and it was really theraputic to just sit and reflect for the last few weeks about what truly brings me joy...and where it might be missing. Hands down, of course, my family is where my joy lies - sometimes it's just good to remember the day to day scuttle, it's far too easy to forget.

Anyway, I thought I'd share my projects here...

I'll add some detail photos to my gallery blog (link over in the right column---------->) and you can also go to their website to see what the design team created with the same kit and theme - it always amazes me at how people can start with the same ingredients and the same theme and come up with such different projects...I love it!

While you're at their site, be sure to check out this fabulous inspiration page - full of quotes, music, links, and all kinds of good things here. This page changes every month, along with the monthly theme. Thanks to Rachel for the fun opportunity to work with SFTIO this month...and for the opportunity I've had to really think about JOY and how it relates to me!


  1. congrats on the guest designer spot this month! love all your projects ... and love that you have a few layouts about you in there! i'm trying to be better about scrapping about myself a little more too lately!

    and i'm with you on looking forward to fall! we have this slight breeze ... even though it's still about 85 out! i seriously want to put all my capris away ... and get out my favorite jeans! lol!

  2. These layouts are a different look for you, maybe? Love any Wendy project...
