FileKutz September 2011 Challenge

Hi there fellow crafters, welcome to FileKutz Challenge Blog! Sorry, I was so MIA last month, so much going on with kids starting school and then I decided to change internet providers and WOW was that an experience!! Living in a small town, out in the country is not fun when looking for providers for your area :)  But, I am all back up and going and things have settled down a little with the kids, but life is still crazy with 4 boys: and 1st year for each one; 1 in high school; 1 in middle school, 1 in kindergarden and 1 in preschool.. so I have 4 different school calendars and 2 football schedules.. plus normal daily life!   But I am back, so lets get on with our next challenge!!
