A scrapper's dozen :D

Fall has been busy so far!
The little dude is transitioning back to regular school which has included some meetings and adjustments. It's going very well though, and he is in the very good hands of a very dedicated team in a brand new autism classroom :D
I have also gone back to "work", with a few days of supply teaching.
And my free time, of which I am very thankful to have a good amount, has been spent scrapping and organizing photobooks. I had 2 free books from Shutterfly and one prepaid hugely discounted one from Picaboo, all of which expired in the last 5 days of September...

So I made front and back covers and organized the scraps in the order I wanted them for the book I had been preparing for a long time (the Picaboo one about our 2013 xmas holidays in Florida) and which had 64 scraps :/ That took a while to upload! Then I gathered some extra photos to fill empty pages in the March 2014 road trip to Florida, and I scrapped a front and back cover for it. And finally, I frantically looked for an idea for one last free book, decided to scrap our summer 2014 trip to Florida with Cedric's service dog Helio, realized I didn't have time to scrap it all, came up with a mixed book (every page spread has one side of photos and text and one side with a scrap), finished the last few scrapped pages I needed, made a front cover and VOILÀ!
To make all this simpler, I managed to use some of the new releases for my books ;)

In the end, the one thing I totally skipped was blogging, so it's been a while, and I have 12 scraps to post... If you're still with me by now, I hope you're comfortable and ready for some eye-candy :D
I'm going to bullet-point them for you!
