It is hard to believe that tomorrow is the start of September...although the warm weather will (hopefully) be around for a little while yet it always makes me a little sad to see the end of summer....but one great thing about September this year is that Twin Mom Scraps is having a month long celebration!! Her blog is turning three!! Congrats to her!! She has lots of fun things planned and lots of freebies and great deals! So make sure you check it out all month long!!
One of the great activities that will be going on is a weekly layout challenge!! Tomorrow is the first one so make sure you head to her blog and check it out for a chance to win a $4 coupon to her store!! She will also be having a Daily Download for a FREE kit for the first 2 weeks of the month. 
Here is a layout that I have made using the kit you can get for FREE by simply going to her blog each day to pick up the pieces!!

You are my Sunshine by Simple Girl Scraps

You guys remember me telling you about the speed scrap with Simple Girl Scraps last week? Well here is the page that I made! It was my first speed scrap ever! I was a bit nervous but it was so much fun and totally low pressure! I love the page that came as a result of this fun event!
But first here is a preview of the kit that I used to make my layout. You can get it at the Digi Scraps Drive-in store Here.
Finally here is my page. I did 'borrow' a few other things from other kits to fit all the rules for the challenge. The glitter is from The Fourth and the yellow flower is from Twitterpated.

Pen Pals kit by Crafty Scraps


Today I have a fun kit to show you that is all about letter writing! Now sadly, for many this is a lost art. With all the technology we just don't write letters anymore. Well, that is not true for children. My daughter loves to write letters (this may be partly because she can not actually write yet....). She has a very dear friend that moved away and she talks about her all the time so when I say this kit I knew it was perfect to scrap the letter that she recently sent to her friend.

Here is a preview of the kit available at Scrapbook Max.
Here is my page.
