School is in session!!

I cannot believe summer is over!!! Wow, it was like the blink of an eye and yet so much has happened it seems like years. I am ready to get back into the routine of things and I am looking very forward to seeing my coworkers again. The beginning of the year brings in new, wide-eyed freshmen and taller, more mature students (or at least we hope so, lol!). It is all very exciting - I really do like this time of the year!

We attended our fall sports spirit night at the high school on Friday night. We were so surprised when Benny was introduced as one of the co-captains of the soccer team!!!

Whoo hoo!! Go Benny! Go Belgrade Panthers!!!

I finished several layouts over the weekend and have several more to do by the end 0f the week. It was a very good scrappy weekend and I am hoping the week will be just as good! I only have time to post one layout this morning. It was done for Scrapping the Music and it is titled Never Give Up Give it all you got! It was based on the song by Eagle Eye Cherry, Never Give Up. I used the Studio Calico August kit for this layout. Boy I love that kit, such fun colors and emebellies. I used some shells and buttons from my stash and my wonderful Cricut machine. The pictures are of Heidi at the ocean and I want to continue to encourage her in her pursuits!

Hope you have a fantastic Monday!!

Here's to a fantastic school year!!

This is a beautiful layout! I am so impressed with your attitude about working! In your shoes I would be in a panic about losing scrapping time to work. I'm selfish that way! Best of wishes for a great start to the new school year! And congrats to Benny for being a co-captain! Very exciting!
