it's september!

And that means there's a new gallery full of inspiration over at Write.Click.Scrapbook.  This month's theme is books.  There are some fabulous pages in the gallery, so be sure and check them out!  I decided I needed to record some of the recent books I had read.  I think my kids will enjoy looking at this when they're older and seeing what some of the popular books were right now.  Here's my submission:

I used the Autumn Splendor line from We R Memory Keepers.  I love how versatile the line is, and the colors and patterns are just so yummy!  I used a library card and some measuring tape twill from Jillibean Soup.  The alpha stickers are from Bella Blvd.

I also used a fun Photoshop trick on this picture of me.  My shirt is actually a much more saturated blue color in real life, but it didn't quite go with these papers.  So I used my polygonal lasso tool to select my shirt, and then used the hue/saturation slider to desaturate the blue a bit so it didn't overwhelm the rest of the layout.
