Favorite thing about August:
August 7th has always been DH and mine's "day". I don't know why (it's not our anniversary) but we always do something special that day. Ever since we were dating, we chose that day to be Our Day. Biggrin LOL And we might visit friends in New Mexico at the end of this month. They are elderly and the husband is not doing well. He has battled cancer for a few years, so we thought we should make a trip to see him.

Any scrapbooking goals for this month? To *finally start on my sister's wedding album I keep talking about. If she mails me her professional pics...

Favorite LO/Altered Project from July:
I did so many pages and cards in July! Wow, I didn't realize how productive I was. Biggrin I couldn't pick between these two:

DH/SO: Michael

Children/ages: Scout (6 months)

Digital or Paper: Used to do paper, have been all digital since Scout was born

Favorite thing about August: My fav and least fav thing is going back to work (teacher here). I get so excited about a new school year, but I miss not having to report anywhere at any particular time. This year will be particularly hard b/c we will be leaving Scout at daycare for the first time every.

Any scrapbooking goals for this month? I want to get Scout's 6 month LO done for sure. I'd also like to scrap Mothers Day and Fathers Day as well. I need to get the Mothers Day pics off my mom's camera though (need to teach her how to get pics on the computer from her camera!)

Favorite LO/Altered Project from July:[/QUOTE] Just counted and I got 5 LOs done in July... I liked them all so much! It's a hard choice... I'm gonna go with

Favorite LO/Altered Project from July: Well I'm a brand new newbie here so I am not sure what that is. Have to post that later once I figure out what ya'll are talking about. It took me hours to figure out LO here meant layout and not loved one, LOL.
