Ok gang, so here's my first charm bracelet. It's quite simple as that was all I could handle :) I don't know if it's my chunky fingers or a lack of coordination (probably BOTH!) but this was a tough one. I'll definitely need to practice!!! Thanks for stopping by!!

and more cards

More cards

I don't know about you all but with today being the first day of school, I couldn't help but have an overwhelming feeling of sadness because summer is OVER! Between working, summer camps, school shopping, volunteering and crafting (of course!), I'm pretty wiped out and my summer has come and gone! Through all of this, I have worked on many cards and other projects. I am happy to say that I remembered to take pictures, so here they are. I'll post the rest as I am able :) Patience please!
Happy scrappin!!!
