This weekend is the beginning of the Colorful Creations School Daze Blog Hop.  At the start I will be announcing all of the links where you can win some fabulous scrappy prizes.  On September 25 be ready to hop on the virtual school bus and stop along the route at some wonderful creative spaces where you will get some great inspiration for some school layouts and projects.  Our first stop will be Colorful Creations, where I am a member of the Design Team.  Why don't you take a moment now and head over there and get familiar with the site and get all signed in so that you will be ready to post your layout in the gallery starting on Sunday.


I'm looking forward to seeing all of your great creations!  Get out your backpacks and fill them with your scrapbook and art supplies and some favorite photos and get ready to get on the bus for a fun filled week of creativity!

I am making the plunge and taking a tent/table at the upcoming Dumont Street Fair.  I plan to have a few baby albums, Oceana albums, Mini-albums all ready to simply add your photos to as well as a large selection of Halloween, Christmas and Birthday cards.  I will be showing some of my books to promote custom made scrapbooks for you.  What else would you like to see when you drop by the booth?
