August Roundup

I started earlier this year doing a monthly round up like Katie the Scrapbook Lady does. I loved the idea of a recap of what I did during the month – something that would make it easy to look back and see a highlight of the month all on one page.

It’s September, so it’s time for the August Roundup.

So, here we go!

I did my Round Up!

I started earlier this year doing a monthly round up like Katie the Scrapook Lady does. I loved the idea of a recap of what I did during the month – something that would would make it easy to look back and see a highlight of the month all on one page.

I did great the first few months of the year and then sort of fell off the wagon as the last month or two of school rolled around. Life got crazy and this was not high on the priority list.

Well, it’s August and time for the roundup from July – I’m determined to stay on track from now through the end of the year. Heck, I may even get around to scrapbooking the pages, too!

So, here is my round up!
