September 2012 Photo I Love

October was an extremely busy month, so I've just now completed my September page for my 2012 album. I had plenty of punched squares to choose from for the border since September was a very productive month for me scrapwise!

Journaling reads: Twelve scrapbookers from 3 states gathered together for my 2nd BPC unofficial Texas Get-Together. I love that this hobbies has brought me many new friends!

Yes, there is a grammatical error in that sentence, but I've just noticed it as I'm preparing this blog post. However, I am simply embracing the imperfection and leaving it as it is already in the album.

I'm hoping to work on the October page and my Month in Numbers layout this weekend. What are y'all working on?

Yep, I love this idea too!

I'm working on a page for a blog hop I've been invited to do and today I'm finding my photo for tomorrow's story

sewing pillowcases with my young friends today! I love when they come to sew. Great layout, I am an embracer of imperfection too as you know!
