Happy Saturday. This is going to be a super quick post as our day is jam-packed. Mostly for Santiago, but of course it inevitably involves the entire family. He just left for an art camp this morning and then leaves the camp early to head out to his first soccer game of the season (if I had had the schedule I never would have enrolled him in the camp...but isn't that just how things go!), and then we leave the soccer game to have a Game Night with a bunch of friends. Between three of the families, our kids range in age from 4 to 9 and get along super well, so it's really just lots of fun when we get together like this. I have a feeling we're going to have some exhausted kids tonight...ok, ok I probably will be too!

On to scrappy matters...I finally got a chance to play along with Craft Hoarders Anonymous...it's been awhile! Their January challenge is to pick (1) from each category from the below chart.
