Powell Garden



It took me practically the entire month since it was announced but I finally got the right pictures together to make my layout for  the SCRAPTOBER FEST.     At this challenge you can make your project to cover just one of the challenges or up to all four that are in the challenge.   BUT, if you enter all three with your layout, then you qualify for a bonus prize drawing, who doesn't like that.
The bonus prize is a $40 GC from one of the sponsors or two $20 GC from two of the sponsors.

Whew, I just made it and got to enter with all 4 challenges with this layout.   My problem was always coming up with scrapping myself.  But this weekend we went out to Powell Gardens outside of Kansas City and took a lovely afternoon fall walk around the area.

Here are all the challenges included in SCRAPTOBER FEST,  you can just click on each link to get complete details on each of the blog.   More info than I have here.

"CHALLENGE YOURSELF"  --- easy peasy, just include a photo of yourself on your layout.
Well wasn't so easy peasy for me, because that was the hold up of finding a couple of pictures I liked of myself and yes I wear glasses but a lot of times take them off for a picture so you got me both ways on this layout, from pictures probably taken a minute apart.   LOL
The prize here is a $20 GC from "The ScrapRoom"

"SCRAP OUR STASH" --- easy peasy again, just use a least 2 different pieces of washi tape on your layout.  I have the wide polka dot piece behind the pictures and then another strip with potty people on them across that strip.   I liked this challenge because without it I usually forget all about it and don't use it enough, but it is a great thing to add to your layouts.   The prize here is a $25 GC for "The Cut Shoppe"

"MY SCRAPS & MORE"  --- this challenge is a color challenge.    I have the color swap below.  I got lucky, I pulled out 4 different collections to look through and then found all the colors in papers from the Amy Tangerine - Finders Keepers collection.   Don't ask my why my wide washi tape looks red in this picture because in reality is a lot closer to the hot pink in the color swap, but its ok I have the color covered in my papers and matting.


"THE MEMORY NEST"  is the 4th part of the complete challenge and they provided the sketch that I used.   I love this sketch and will probably use it again, as it is a great two picture sketch with many ways to go with it.   I switched it up some with the washi tape strips and the flower embellishments.    Here is the sketch.    The prize here is a $20 GC from "The Memory Nest"
