I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Ours was pretty hot. Both kids had soccer games on saturday and we all about melted. The toughest part is walking ALL the way out to the field from the parking lot carrying chairs, coolers, gear etc. The kids are exhausted before the game even starts! Sunday we all just relaxed, watched some football, baked cupcakes, went in the pool. Definitely a much needed respite from the craziness of the week. So....I owe you all a winner for the fabulous September Scrapbook Circle kit. I used Random Org to pick a number for me...

Which makes KateB the winner!Congratulations, Kate-- I already emailed you for your address! Before I go I want to share a couple more layouts I made with the kit (while I am already playing with the October Scrapbook Circle kit and will only tell you--it is JUST as awesome!).
This one I did with literally SCRAPS left lol.
I sewed a grid, splattered some mist and then punched sunbursts from the tiniest scraps of patterned paper that were left after completing 7 layouts. We didnt get to go anywhere this year, so I tried to do lots of fun things with the kids right here. I think one of their favorites is swimming in the pool.
I really love the Amy Tangerine die cuts from the Add On. I figured even though we didnt travel some of the phrases work for our Staycation:
Next is one of my all time favorite layouts ever.
Sorry if you now have The Sound of Music stuck in your head ;) I cropped my photos into squares and left enough room between them when I printed so I could cut them into Polaroid shapes. The whole layout with the larger white border on the bottom is supposed to look like a Polaroid too, but I probably should have left a larger white border. The faux Polaroids are strung with bakers twine that I got from the Scrapbook Circle shop. 
I will be back soon, maybe with some sneaks of the October kit, so stay tuned!!
