KikiPea , I think you and Vicki Boutin are a marriage made in Heaven! LOVE all the prettiness tucked around that photo!
The first two days of my miniLOAD LO's:

The second prompt was Schedule, and the technique was NUMBERS. I did a page about the people at the retreat It was a very loose schedule b/c the goal was to meet people and have a good time rather than to check off a bunch of goals. scraphappy schedule miniLOAD 2 by Gramma Dee, on Flickr

Here is today's LO for miniLOAD. Also fits today's Sketchy Saturday. I was excited to be doing a page about a rock concert, and went a little crazy with bright and metallic sprays on the background. Then I ended up covering most of it with pp and photos...

Sorry, I'm way behind on commenting and sharing. I got a bit bogged down with other things so far this month. I've left some comments on Flickr for you grammadee and kitbop and Chinagirl828 but I haven't caught all the way up yet.
Lots of cool pages teacherlisa The photo strips are really neat. That's a great way to fit 12 photos on one small page. I like your journaling inserts and flip ups and including the "instructions" was a nice touch.
teacherlisa , I love all your fun pages about your road trip. Those photo strips are a wonderful way to add lots of detail and the flaps add a lot of interest to your pages. Including the instruction sheet is a great idea!
Off to a Potato Festival for the day, but I managed to get my miniLOAD LO done this morning with the prompt to discuss teachers and to use chalkboard elements. I am failing at the challenge to remember my own school days, but am happy to have some photos my dgd texted me about her experience dissecting a sheep's eye. I made it fit the prompt... I think....

Got to go to a crop before the first day of school for my baby tomorrow....waaaah, last one! But laughing with good friends is always nice. Finally scrapped these pics of my niece's wedding....they are melancholy as their marriage ended due to his deplorable behavior, but such a sweet memory of us all together. I had to say a prayer that my niece will find a man that loves her like no one else. She's a wonderful person and mother.
Here are my pages for today. Followed the last prompt from ScrapHappy "After School"--at least a little. Explained the connection in the description on Flickr. Used school supplies--kind of. Couldn't find my "good" water colour paints, so used one of my dgk's Crayola sets.

I made 6 double pages on the weekend but only 3 of them are really worth your time, and they're still very simple. All are going to be 5x8 pages in a blurb book so imagine the spine running down the middle.
Let me know what you think of these splatters - honest/critical feedback welcome! I might add a patterned background in a light grey behind that page instead. week 27: 100 day/readathon by jo.blackford, on Flickr
Almost forgot, I did some crafty stuff on Monday - I paper pieced a little bear inside the birthday card I gave my friend. I had made the card last year. I've been watching Lisa Fonseca videos on YT thanks to a Pea and decided I'd try cutting a critter too. I used the bear on the front of the card as a model. It was a bit fiddly because it was small but I think he turned out well. I'm going to make more critters to out on the fronts of cards.
joblackford your bear is super cute! I quite like the splatters, the little grey halo on some of them is not something I traditionally see on digi splatters but it feels more like real splatters this way.

I finally got my layouts from the beginning of the month uploaded. Sorry for all at once.
The first 4 are for a designer challenge (Sahin Designs over at the Lily Pad). The first one I used kitbop's sketchy Saturday sketch Aug. 3rd as my inspiration. dNewGrillMaster by Lisa Davolt, on Flickr
