At 4 Scrappy Sisters, one of the September challenges was so use a large element on your page, so I decided to use this giant Scenic Route arrow. How fun!

I could not get a good photograph of this page. The colors are so pretty, and I really couldn't capture it. I took these photographs standing up in the girls' skyfort. They were relaxing on the grass in the backyard, and I just couldn't resist taking pictures of them! The glitter chipboard letters are by ScrapWorks. The chipboard piece I used for the center of my Prima says "simple pleasures", and it's also by Scenic Route. I cut the circles with my Coluzzle, and I added two QuicKutz photo corners. I also used my Uniball Signo pen to add some white dot trios. I love the way this page turned out. You can click on it to see it larger.

Well, I don't want to jinx anything, but there is HUGE excitement in the Chicagoland area. Both the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox have clinched their divisions, and they will both be playing post-season playoff games. I cannot even tell you how exciting that is for us! Go Cubs Go! That's all I have to say . . . for now!!

I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
