Scraps & Stash May 24

Whew! Where does the time go? I had every intention of posting S&S Saturday after I got home from retreat yesterday. Obviously, my intentions were not realized, and instead I spent a leisurely evening with my son who came to visit while his dad cooked supper. It’s rough on me…

At any rate, I’m here now to share my kits and projects from the past week.

LOAD514 I’m playing along with Layout a Day, so instead of using one kit for the entire month, I’m picking kits each day to use for each of the prompts.

Whoa! Lots of kits and layouts this week! I am so pleased with how much stash I’m using, and I am LOVING the layouts I’ve made so far this month. I can’t wait to put all these layouts into their own dedicated album. And, I am still on track with the challenges – I haven’t missed a day yet, and I want to finish this final week strong and proud. And of course, I’ll be back next week to show you the results. Thanks for joining me!

      LOL Thanks! Yes, I do wonder where the time went – always. Seems like only yesterday we were graduating high school, and now I have two children in college. Boggles the mind, it does.
