my challenges in august2012

Here we are again. Another month and another set of challenges! How about the fun stuff first?! OHHHHKAY!

The Sampler has CARD AND LAYOUT CHALLENGES up for all to play along with! I made one of my first TRULY girlie layouts (because I have a little lady now... i should do things things? pfft) using The Sampler's August2012 kit. 


I highly recommend heading over to the post on The Sampler's blog and playing along! Lots of good ideas coming from those sketches and the other designers have made some wonderful projects too!! Really, they have!

Other challenges this month are generic "omg i have no time" type challenges. I've been trying my best to have a good summer with the boy. which is awesome, BUT causes my eye to twitch at all the unfinished projects around the house. Oh well, one more week of summer and he will be a FIRST GRADER! Very excited for him. He is looking so forward to school but very apprehensive about his behavior of all things. Don't get me wrong. We have the *cough* occasional listing issue, but all round he's a great little guy. I am fairly certain he will get off on the right foot and it will be a great year! Once we get the school year going, I'm going back to the gym (holyshitballs! i bought a 1year gym membership for $55. THANK YOU LIVING SOCIAL) this means I will have to work on giving pip a bottle (i have a HUGE stash, even after donating quite a bit, of frozen breastmilk for those wondering...) She hasn't been completely resistant to bottles as of late, but certainly doesn't take them with the same gusto she does with the breast.  go figure. Oh well, grandma can sort that one out in time...

anywho, have a great day!

A very sweet *girl* page. Looking forward to a little extra time to myself this fall too. Good luck at the gym. My little one refused the bottle and would cry the entire time. Sigh, it was a learning process for both of us.
