Scrappy Sunday--coming in under the wire!

I spent this Sunday trying to get back in my normal routine, with limited success. I also engaged in a little bit of self-torture infertility style, i.e. the maternity and baby sections of Target. I even found a little black and white polka dot ruffled onesie that was simply too cruel:) I was trying to think of little girls to send it to!

And in just a few moments, I will get back to scrapping--it's been over a week, what with the holiday itself and all the prep beforehand. I received my gorgeous September Studio Calico kit, Back 40, and I'm raring to start cutting and pasting!

But before I go lose myself in a sea of paper scraps, here are some pages I haven't posted yet using SC's August kit, Summer Camp.

This one is pretty much a fusion of Jen Johner and Maggie Holmes in my head:
When S and I first met, he didn't read so often, while I DEVOUR books. I go to the library, take out 20 or so 14 day books, read like a madwoman to get through them before the deadline, and do it again. Love love love books.

So after almost 2 years being married to a reading freak like me, S has started to dip into books a little more. When I found this photo of him concentrating on his book, it made me think about how much we influence each other in relationships. It's a funny thing.

Are there any traits someone else had that rubbed off on you? Or vice versa?



And finally, an ode to the Boston Duck tours. If you've never taken these, it's a tour involving a car that turns into a boat! I found this very exciting, although the actual descent into water was somewhat anticlimactic--I expected a bigger splash myself:)

What are YOU up to this week? What scrapbooking projects are on your desk?

Also, I love finding new blogs, so if you're a reader and have your own blog, please leave a link!

  3. Keshet! Awesome new header, girl! And the layouts?! Fantastic! Love the "I've rubbed off on you" title and the "Duck Tour" layout is perfect in every way! Can't wait to see what you do with Back 40. We've been ripping out our kitchen for two days now, so no scrappiness to discuss. =(
