Jeanne & I had a chance to get in some good scrappy time yesterday. Both of us finished the August edition of Shimelle's Scrap Your Day. This month's theme was "all about you". I had a bit of fun with this one, making my way down to the st john's town center as seems to be my habit on SYD. Much more scenic than my apartment. This is also the second SYD in a row with a well known person passing. In July it was Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett, August had Senator Kennedy.
I used Tim Holtz ink and my Studio G stamps for the date, and Martha Stewart pens for the journaling. Cardstock is from The Paper Company. That tiny little piece of PP in the middle is unknown scraps.
Don't forget to visit Jeanne to see what she created!
At least the weather seems to be cooling off, so I will enjoy sitting out on the balcony more in the evening. The cat loves it out there as well.
I also find myself far more willing to go to the beach in the winter. Early morning is especially nice, when it's about 50 deg. F out. Not only is it too hot in the summer to go to the beach, but instead of being able to enjoy the walk, I spend most of it dodging everything from frisbees to footballs to bocce balls. I'm definitely not cut out for the summer heat of the south, but I sure as heck don't miss driving in snow & ice either. A proper fall would be nice, but then I wouldn't have an excuse to go home for vacation. Well, I'd have one less excuse, anyway.
Only 9 days til my vacation, and I'm so happy. I'll miss the kitty, but he is well cared for by a co-worker while I'm away. **Thanks, Julie!
