Happy weekend!! If you're like me - you are THRILLED that it is finally here, lol :o)  Have you guys all been busy with BACK TO SCHOOL?  I know that lots of schools started last week, and the rest are beginning in the next week or two!  Such a busy (but fun) time of year for all of us moms, huh?  As scrapbookers, it is so fun to scrap pages from all of the fun school pics!  And, we hope we can help you out with that, at least a little :o)  I am sooooo happy to show you our newest 'additions' product!  The hopscotch SCHOOL additions were designed to coordinate with the HOPSCOTCH kit (which is still my favorite, lol) - the perfect combination for all of those fun, school-related photos!  And, I am also excited because we are debuting our very first collection of Easy-as-Pie LAYERED TEMPLATES!  You guys have asked for these for quite some time now...and we are happy to oblige!  You'll see more of these in future releases, too :o)  Alright, as always...I have rambled on longer than planned, lol...so, I'll just move on and show you these new products along with TONS of inspiration from the team!  Oh, before I forget...both of these new products AND the hopscotch KIT are ON SALE for 25% off this week only!  (sale price goes away on August 28, 2010)

HOW FUN IS THIS?  It's a super cool and practical SCHOOL addition for the HOPSCOTCH kit (sold separately)!  The collection includes both rub-ons and digi stickers...LOTS of wordart and some fun embellishments (and a 12x12 lined notepaper).  While this was created to coordinate with the HopScotch kit...as you can see - it will work with lots of kits and colors...so just have fun with it...and get those precious memories scrapped!  Because you KNOW that it will be NEXT school year before we know it, lol!  Here's some fantastic inspiration from the girls...

And, I had a lot of fun working with the kit and the additions on this three ring binder!  I have been taking a photography class and really wanted to organize all of my lessons :o)  It turned out soooo cute (and yay, totally practical, too)!

Did I mention that I am super excited about our Easy-as-Pie templates?  Seriously...I LOOOOOVE templates!  They provide such a great starting point for a layout - while still offering the ability to be CREATIVE!  Our first collection, HEARTLAND, includes four layered templates (in both PSD and TIFF formats), each unique and fun!  Be sure to check out the product page for more info on our templates...and more previews, too!  Here's a better look at the templates included...as well as lots of inspiration...

I think that's it for now!  We would LOVE to see your layouts and projects in the Shoppe's gallery!  Of course, be sure to visit the BLOG for lots of new posts, including our latest template challenge (complete with free layered template and piece-a-cake page)!  Have a WONDERFUL weekend, and lots of fun scrapping!
