Amanda here from She's Eclectic. I'm sorry, I know it is still August and officially summer for a few more weeks yet but we are one day away from September and I can't wait for the season to change! I've had a lovely summer but autumn is my favourite time of year and I'm ready for it to begin so my theme for this month's Planner Friday is very autumnal and inspired by APB's Hello Fall stamp set! I wanted to create a monthly overview for September as my children go back to school next week and it's time to get organised again after a rather relaxed August so I opened up my TN and got to work with washi tape, stamps , pens and stickers!
Products used: School Days planner stamps
Used but not pictured: Coffee paper clip
My colour theme for September is full of oranges, browns, yellows and reds with a bit of green mixed in there too based around the colours of autumn leaves. I used the image stamps from my Hello Fall set to add some fun decoration to my pages and matched them with a leaf print washi tape to pull it all together. I coloured in the fall images and then added a big coffee cup sticker because all I ever hear about in autumn is pumpkin spiced lattes! I have never tried one because they really don't appeal to me but so many people seem obsessed with them maybe I should give one a go this year!

The next thing I did was to add all of my reminders and appointments etc to the month with my At Home and More At Home stamp sets and the start of a new school year meant that it was time to use my School Days stamps again too! Until the children actually go back and get their new timetables I could only use the First Day of School stamp and the Club one to remind me that my oldest two need to return forms to select which after school activities they will be doing this year. Once I know what and when things will be happening I can use the rest of the set to record things like PTA events, welcome back assemblies and the all important picture day! I have left myself plenty of room to add these things over the upcoming weeks so it should be pretty easy for me to stay on top of things, fingers crossed!
September in my TN
This is how my month looks at the moment, there's nothing too scary on there just yet and hopefully it will stay that way but if things do get crazy I know I can handle it all as long as it is in my planner!
