It's my birthday.. and I'll scrap if I want to...

It's my birthday today.. and I'm a big, fat 36 years old. Not really.. I'm 22, but I feel 36.. lol! Let's just hope that when I'm 36, I feel 22! =) I'm not scrapping today though. I'm lounging on the couch listening to some country music and missing home. Annnd letting DH clean house. Sounds like a good day to me! We're going to head to the fair a little later.. and I'm hoping for some king cake. We'll see.

Anyways, to the point of this post. Sketch 216 was posted at Scrapbook Challenges today! I've been working on September's sketches for about a week now, and I'm telling you.. it's killing me not being able to share them yet!!! I'm excited to share this one today though.
Sketch 216:

And here's my take:

I've had these pictures for a while now, and I knew what title I wanted to use with them. I've just been looking for the perfect papers to match. Well, at the Scrapbook Expo last month, I had a coupon for the SEI booth... and what do I see?! This amazing paper collection! I knew instantly that it'd be perfect for these pictures. See.. waiting around does pay off. =)

The 'purple carpet' in Pacific Grove is absolutely beautiful. It's definitely one of the things I was excited about when I found out we were moving here. I try to really not complain about where we live because it is amazing really. I've been to the Grand Canyon, and I much prefer the coastline of Big Sur. It's THAT beautiful here. But, it's still not home.. and I'm homesick. I'm glad I got to scrap that. =)

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Labor Day! =)
