I was able to do some scrapbooking this month, which was nice! I scrapped these pictures from our trip to Connecticut this summer and used a sketch from MME. To create this layout, I used MME's Lost & Found Union square line and their Lush Red line.

I also used a combination of the Lush and Union Square lines for this birthday card (I told you I have a bunch coming up) and followed MME's card sketch for this month.
This last layout I did for Sketch Inspiration's sketch this week. You should check it out because the Paper Trail is sponsoring!

Birthday Card

There are a lot of birthdays coming up in my family so this birthday card challenge (create a birthday card with non-birthday papers) is very timely. I used TaDa Studios's Whirlygig Collection papers, Basic Grey's Out of Print Collection alphabet stickers, Creative Studios's rhinestone brads, and Unhinged Creative acrylic charms. The way I used the charm was to adhere a piece of patterned paper to the back of it and tie it off with some ribbon. You can find all of these supplies at The Paper Trail store:

Out of Print

The Paper Trail store ( is carrying Basic Grey's new Out of Print line, which I used to create this layout of our frozen adventure on the ridge of Sandia mountain. My favorite part of this line are the butterflies, which I accented with Prima rhinestone flourishes.
