    Happy September everyone! Robin here, and I'm excited to host the A to Z Challenge this month... and it's a fun one! It's tough, but it is also an awesome way to challenge yourself creatively and stretch your scrapbooking skills! And like Lou Holtz once said, "In this world, you're growing or you're dying so get in motion and grow." So play along with me and grow!
    For this challenge, you will need to create a layout/project that includes an item from each letter in the alphabet. So for example... A could be for "alpha" . . . B could be for "button" . . . C = card . . . D = dot . . . E = eyelet . . . F = flower . . . and so on. You don't have to use these examples, of course... you can come up with your own "A is for ___" and so on. Also, you are allowed ONE exception (i.e. one letter that you are allowed to skip and therefore don't have to use, if desired). Finally, you will need to include a list of which item you used for each alphabet letter.

    I'll be honest, I was a bit overwhelmed when I thought about this one, but you know what? It wasn't that hard! I actually shocked myself Here's my layout and my list below:

    made with Baking Spirits Bright by Mari Koegelenberg & templates March and May both by Dunia Designs

    A - arrow (in title)
    B - button (1st button)
    C - candy
    D - date
    E - enamel button
    F - frame
    G - green word strip
    H - hearts
    I - icing (on the gingerbread house)
    J - journaling
    K – kids (lots of them hehe!)
    L - (journaling) lines
    M - Maddie (my daughter) or multiple green confetti
    N - numerous photos
    O - outline (the word "Epic")
    P - pin
    Q – question (in my caption)
    R - red button (2nd button)
    S - staples
    T - triangle (on word strip) or title (Fun Ahead)
    U - under (the journaling is under the top left photo)
    V - skipped
    W - white background paper
    X - “x” stitches
    Y - YUM tiles
    Z – Zach (my son)

        You would never know by looking at your page that you thought it was hard! You did a great job of scrapping so many events on one page! I struggle with this and yet you did it perfectly. Wow! Those square boxes really draw attention to your journaling which is super important in my opinion. Love this!!

        I apologize for not commenting earlier. I truly thought I had, but it went away into cyperspace somewhere! This layout really spoke to me. Your pictures are amazing and I absolutely fell in love with your journaling. You can see how much his car meant to you and I'm blow away about how you scrapped it here. I love that you used some of the requirements in your journaling too (underline, quotes, etc.) and that by doing this, you actually emphasized parts that should be emphasized in my humble opinion. What I'm trying to say Judy is that I love your page. For Real.
