Happy September!

I don't know what happened to summer. School starts in a few days and we might make it to the beach one or two more times but fall is really on its way.

Lots of changes in my life. My dad passed away a few weeks ago and I would say I'm still in the disbelief stage of grief. Also my job of three years is not happening this school year which is a nice break but the extra money sure was nice.

So in an effort to take care of me, I have been trying to sit down and create here and there.  I made this fun Disney page today for a stash challenge over at Disney Scrappers.

I used lots of embellies I've had hanging around for ages and I love the way this page came out. I really pushed myself to layer.

I also made this page last month for an August Lily Bee challenge to use paper strips. Real life got in the way of posting it in time, but it was definitely out of the box for me and a page that I really like. I'm linking up to SoapHouseMama's  Layout Love Linky for pages left unblogged! 

Thanks for stopping by today!!
