September pages for Scrapbook Circle--and a sale!

September is upon us, and I am working hard to prepare to teach 11th grade students. I'm teaching 11th grade AP and Reading, and I have a lot of work to do this weekend, but I am excited to meet my students. Until then, I wanted to share my September pages for Scrapbook Circle's kit Hello Hello. First is a page that's a little messy:

Because we had our date in NE Mpls, I picked some grungy looking papers to fit the warehouses. I also added some gesso, modeling paste with a mask, and some ink. It was tricky adhering the photos; I ended up using dimensionals on glue dots. Here's the details:

Next is a page I made with some random photos of the boys I recently discovered. I put them together on this page and journaled about the new chapter in their lives: middle school.

I loved the chipboard in the embellishment add-on.  It inspired my title block.

Then a page that's a little different: while I scrapped our Disney vacation from 5 years ago, I found these pictures of Dominic waterbending. They were so charming and such a perfect picture of his interest at the time, I used them on this page. I selected water-splashed paper and made a little bend with the epoxy in the add-on.

Here I was a little creative: the tags in the main were gorgeous. I trimmed them a bit to make them a smaller chevron. To do so, I laid them together and sewed in between.

Finally, a page I was inspired to make after going home for vacation this year. We ordered pizza from Tess' (mad props to the correct use of apostrophe on the sign), a fond memory of my growing up years. Here's the page:

I kept it simple, but I tried to make it look a little like the awning. I also used the flourish in pizza to highlight "favorite." Because it is.
