I'm so glad that the September deadlines were extended, as life in this household was pretty hectic during the month of September. Yesterday I managed to have a whole day to myself to scrapbook (whilst my daugher and husband were both at work) and manged to do Challenge 2 and 3 from September. It is amazing how much a clean scrapdesk, some new papers and a few sketch maps can inspire you. . I especially loved the "Word" challenge this month. Recently my son graduated and as a family we were all able to be there and celebrate this with him. My youngest daughter was real keen to have a photo taken with his cap on as she really has no desire to go to Uni and figured this would probably be the only chance she would get to wear one. In this layout, I wanted to share with her that real wisdom doesn't come from getting an education or degree and although it can be seen as worthwhile, real wisdom comes from a relationship with the Lord and my prayer for her would be that she will Grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is that relationship and wisdom that is eternal. I also challenged myself to scrap on a patterned piece of paper - very unusual for me.

I hope you have all had as much fun with the challenges this month as I did. I am looking forward to seeing what you all came up with.
