When one door closes...

another one opens, right???  I am so hoping that is the case here.  Had a hard scrappy week, but no worries.  I'm going to keep my chin up, and keep scrapping my heart out.

I had to cancel my subscription at Studio Calico this month.  I have so many kits that are sitting there untouched, and those hockey lessons are expensive.  Still, I've been a member there for over 3 years, and I'll miss my brown box more than words can say.

In happier news...my boy was picked to play hockey select!  We are thrilled, of course, an so proud!  He's been amazing on the ice lately.  Makes those 6 AM practices and games totally worth it.

OK, because I have to post a pic of something...here's a LO I haven't shared yet:

I created it for the Bo Bunny DT call this summer.  Didn't get picked, but I still LOVE this LO!  Pics are from our trip to Ocean City.  My hubby took pics of my boy and I on the roller coaster at the pier.  Fun times!

Have a great Tuesday!!!

Pin It!

So sorry that you had to cancel your SC membership. That would bum me out too. But, congrats to your son on his soccer achievements!

Love the layout Amy!
Sorry to hear about sad scrappy news. And I hope a wonderful door opens for you! I'll join you in doors slamming! I've had so many rejections recently that I'm not sure how I'll react when I don't get one!
Hugs to you!

I "tried" to cancel this month too. I really should. I have many kits untouched. But then I chickened out and continued it. I know I shouldn't have! but I totally understand. Yes, just keep scrapping. Nothing else really matters but getting the memories down! Love the colors on that layout!

So sorry about your cancellation, but hopefully at some point you can pick it back up again when you're in the right place! Love that Bo Bunny layout!

Woohooo congrats to your son! I may be commiserating with you soon...I NEED to cancel SC too, I have way too many kits piling up and they are utouched. I really planned on doing it this month and just haven't been able to do it. :) I truly believe a scrappy door will definitely open for you...you deserve it! Love your BB layout...you worked wonder with the die cut!

I canceled my SC subscription for the same reason, Amy. I love the kits but just wasn't getting to use them enough and now I miss getting that brown box in the mail, too. Congrats on your son with hockey, though, and your layout is fab! I'm sure those doors will be opening soon enough :) I've had plenty of my own close on me but something always happens eventually. ♥

So sorry about SC and other scrappy sadness. It stinks. But I bet that door will open. And I can def comisserate with the rejection--I've had some luck recently, but up until that I tried for MONTHS and got n.o.t.h.i.n.g. Made me really upset sometimes, and rejections still have that effect on me. They just stink:(

I'm sorry about the SC cancellation - on top of a bad 'scrappy' week that is a pretty harsh week. Your work is gorgeous Amy and always inspires me.
So happy for your son & that your dedication to his hockey career is paying off!

A few things... first, that layout is fab! I can't believe you weren't picked up. I really think the design is well done. You are so good with bold colors.

I am sorry you need to cancel your sub, but life is so much more than paper, so you know you are doing the right thing for your family, and i hope to still see you around!

P.S. 6am practice! For pete's sake!
