Wasn't the other day the first day of Fall? You wouldnt know it here. We are still up to 110 every day. The only difference is overnight the temps are dipping down into the 70's. It is not much in the way of relief, but it is a start. I was worried the pool would be too cold, but it is actually still quite refreshing.

This week's ScrapTiffany Challenge was to do a 4 photo (at least layout). I still have a bunch of photos from Little Miss's birthday that havent been scrapped yet. I like using multiple photo designs for events since I usually take so many photos. Here is my layout:
I added some straight stitching on the edge of the polka dot paper in a dark brown thread,
 then added some zig zag stitching on the 12x12 vertical strip.
 All the papers are from Upsy Daisy Designs. I love how their collections include journaling spots and little tags and quotes.

Other than some dips in the pool. We had a relatively mellow weekend. I went to the Bazzill Warehouse Sale on Saturday. They sell discontinued and imperfect cardstock for super cheap. I got a pizza box of cardstock and some very cheap spools of ribbon and tulle. Little Miss ended up with a couple of glue runners and a mini  book to decorate with drawings. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! See you next week--on Tuesday I will be doing the Tuesday Tutorial at ScrapTiffany. See you then!
