A Whole New Look at Butter

Happy Hump Day, Ladies!!! Jenny checking in today enjoying the sunny sunshine after yesterday's First Day of School rainout AND here to bring you this week's installment of Behind the Scenes Wednesday. I want to share with you some things that inspire me to want to scrapbook til all hours of the morning.

I don't know about you... but, there are two things I spend way too much $$$$ on: childrens' clothing and scrappy stuff. Now, what in the world could those 2 things possibly have in common?!? Well, I see scrapbook pages when I look at my kids' clothing, especially my girls'. See here? This cute line from Gymboree is called Rockstar Academy and I bought a pile of it to send Julia off to First grade in style this Fall. Take careful note of the hearts all in rows and the hearts with the argyle stitching, as well. I see this showing up in this month's Mosh Posh gallery. I haven't decided if I'm going for spray ink with hand stitching or patterned papers with machine stitching. But, it will be there on the 15th! (hint, hint).

Alrighty, so what the heck was that silly "butter" reference?!? Well, for the last several months, I've been a big fan of the color yellow. Yellow is so NOT a Jenny color, but alas, I dig it. Specifically, the color of butter. I talked about yellow back in June and you can see it in the card up top. Back then I like the butter mixed with robin's egg blue and cherry. Then, among came my 8 year old's new school clothes. Gymboree mixed my beloved butter with grey (think September's mp grey Lullaby Thickers) and a blue-grey. See here...

Me likey... Here's June's color inspo, still love this one, too:

Some pages I've done this summer also show that cool yellow color and one even has the grey. See here...

Hope you enjoyed a peek inside my little brain and how it works. Stay tuned for the argyle layout and also the butter/grey combination showing up in the DT gallery real soon. Thanks for stopping today.

I love all your inspiration! Those clothes are sooo adorable! I had fun getting stuff for the fall too. I am pretty sure all my money goes to the kids clothes and scrappy stuff too. Although new classes and programs seem to be whats coming out of the wallet these days. ;)
