A month of new Beginnings ...

September ... a new month, a new season around the corner and a new school year - a time of mixed emotions for most parents ! Little ones are off to school for the first time and older ones are going back to school. Here at Inspried Blueprints it's time for a new sketch, a new guest designer and a new sponsor. Our new sketch is so much fun ..  it's a single photo sketch but 2 smaller photos could be used...  or a smaller photo and a equally sized journaling spot or ... the possibilities are endless !! So, without further ado ... here is Sketch #29 ...


How fun is this !! Our guest designer this month is an Inspired Blueprints community member !! Please welcome Cecilie Malling from Denmark. She is a multi-talented scrapper and I know you'll love her version of the sketch !! Here is a little bit about Cecilie ...

Scrapbooking has filled my life with joy and important friendships for the past four years. So much so that I can't really remember how I spent my time before paper, glue, ribbon, stickers and brads became household items in our home. With scrapbooking I've found my artistic outlet and I find great peace in working with pictures and supplies. For the past 2½ years I've had the great pleasure of being a member in Lifetime Moments' design team; a position I enjoy tremendously.

Being in my thirties, married with no kids my pages often sport pictures of our day to day life, friends and family or pictures from our travels. I don't worry about being caught up or scrapping chronologically - I just scrap whatever catches my attention and "asks" to be scrapped. To me scrapboking perfectly combines memory keeping with a creative hobby.

  1. Awesome layouts!! And I have to admit that the stars are difficult for me to use but you make it look sooo easy!!!

  2. This is my first try also. I did switch from a star to a moon because it fit my layout, but I thought that I'd link it anyway.
