 I made this double page layout of the decorations at my daughters home this Halloween.   I used sketch #625 at LASTING MEMORIES.    The challenges this month are all sketches.

We went to this event called Glow in St. Louis Tuesday night at the Missouri Botanical Gardens and it was fantastic.    I had seen pictures of it from other years so I was excited to be going.     Of course I was also thinking about the great scrapbook pages I could make from the pictures I took.   I knew I wanted to get a Picture of myself to use for the Challenge at "CHALLENGE YOURSELF" so this is the picture I decided to use for the challenge and then I wanted to use for the challenge.   The sketch challenge at  "SCRAP OUR STASH" was perfect for it.   I gave me a chance to make a photo into a circle and scrap it that way.

"CHALLENGE YOURSELF"   I did the journaling in my own handwriting 

"SCRAP OUR STASH"   I did faux stitching around the two black word circles.

Happy Birthday To You


I made this layout for the Scrappy Friends double challenge.   I love the sketch by Rochelle Spears and then the Tic Tac Toe Board at Scrap with Stacy.    I did something different for the two outline rectangles I used two different ribbons to make them.   Thats something I've never done.


"SCRAP WITH STACY"    Tic - Tac - Toe ( Bottom Row=Journaling, Flowers & Faux Stitching)

October 31st


The November Wheel of Challenges at  "SCRAP OUR STASH"  is a color challenge, they are perfect fall colors and also in the challenge you had to add leaves to your layout.   Of course I had leaves in tow of my patterned papers, but I also added a fabric leaf and two shiny leaf brads for embellishements.  Below is the color wheel with the challenge info.

And next Challenge #470 Halloween or Black/Orange is the October 31st challenge at  "USE YOUR STUFF"   and I made this layout of pictures of just our evening outside around the fire pit and my daughters house and we had a wagon full of treats curbside for the kids and the moon was beautiful to look at through the crook of the tree branches.

Challenge #470 Halloween or Black/Orange

In honor of the spooky day, let's see your Halloween or black/orange projects this go round.  Anything having to do with Halloween or a project primarily in black and orange will do!  Be spooky, be cute, be sarcastic....most of all be fun and use up that stash!
