Sketch #107

I just keep making Halloween cards but then I just keep finding these great sketches that let me use up my stash of Halloween embellishments.

For this card I used sketch #107 at   "SKETCH N SCRAP".     Here is the sketch.


I got to see the preview of my Granddaughter in her Halloween costume for this year while I was visiting last weekend.    She is going to be a cute little elephant, or at least that is the plan now.   She was not impressed with having the trunk hanging there on her.

I will enter this layout at   "PAPER PLAYER SKETCHES"   This week is a color challenge.
Orange, Black and Grey,   I have orange and black in the paper I used and then the grey is in the elephant costume.

Here is a link to  "PAPER PLAYER SKETCHES"  and the color example.

Total Cuteness

I might be a tad prejudiced but I think she is just the cutest ever.      The crawling has begun and in another week you won't be able to keep up with her.   But while I had the chance I did get this picture.
She had on the cutest little outfit and those ears on the hood when you pulled it up was just adorable.
She was certainly covered in hug and kisses this day while visiting her great grandfather and 4 generations together, thus the name.

I did my take on the October 15th sketch at   "Colorful Creations"   and used an old collection
Bo Bunny - Love Letters to make the layout.   Matted the picture in black, matted all the triangle patterned papers with black ink, added the date and my wood veneer title XOXOXO and viola I had my layout complete.

Here is the sketch and the link to  "COLORFUL CREATIONS".

My Weekend PL page

I had a great weekend with my daughter, SIL, granddaughter, brother and Dad this past weekend so I decided to make one full PL page about it.      Sketch #88 at  "SKETCHES IN THYME PL STYLE"  was perfect for my journaling card.

And then here is my full PL page that I used it on.

Here is the sketch and link for the challenge at   "SKETCHES IN THYME PROJECT LIFE STYLE"

My Pumpkin

I had a great weekend with my granddaughter and family.   We took her to her first pumpkin patch and had many photo ops.   We had fun and took pumpkins home to cook with dinner that night and also to decorate.

I'm going to enter this layout in four different challenges, a sketch challenge, color challenge and two theme challenges.

I'll start with the sketch challenge.   Challenge #139 at  "SKETCH N SCRAP"   It was perfect for two of the picture of me holding Elle and one of the pumpkins out in the patch.
Here is the sketch and the link is in the name above.

Next is the color palette challenge at   "THE STUDIO CHALLENGES"   it coved all the colors I used in my layout with the different patterned papers and my card stock matting plus my title color and the embellishments.   The link is in the name and here is the color Palette.

Moving right along I went to  "RUBBER BUGGY CHALLENGE BLOG"    This is challenge #4 and I have to say I'm really having fun playing along with the challenge here.   So glad I found out about it.     I love all the fall activities of festivals, pumpkin patches, apple picking.    So much fun for everyone.     Challenge #4 theme is......

Finally the challenge at   "USE YOUR STUFF"    Challenge #284  is Tis the Season for Pumpkin Spice, you could use orange, a little or a lot on your project or add a pumpkin to your project.   I have done both some pumpkins and some orange in my papers.   I really used my stuff on this, lots of paper pieces and card stock scraps for matting and some embellishments I've had for awhile and the poem that I've hoarded forever.

Challenge #284 - Tis The Season For Pumpkin Spice

Happy Halloween witch

Yes I'm still making Halloween cards and having a blast.   The bonus is I'm using up a lot of paper I've been stocking and embellishments for the season, because I have a lot.

This card is for Challenge #132 - Halloween at  "FANTABULOUS CRICUT".
The challenge is to make a project about anything Halloween.   Well this witch streaking across the moon sure says Halloween to me.

I used the Celebrate with a Flourish cartridge.   I've had this cartridge for ions and I absolutely love it.

So happy Monday and happy creating at "FANTABULOUS CRICUT"


I've been making a lot of Halloween cards and fall layouts lately so I've been weeding through all these seasonal papers and embellishments for a couple of weeks now at least.   I have a couple of challenges I will enter this card into.   First when I saw the new sketch #179 at   "FEELING SKETCHY" this morning I immediately knew what embellishments I had for the perfect card to go with the sketch.   Then I found this starry paper, used it for my background and inked all the edges in black to make it a little more night like and added my cobweb, sentiment and some 3D spiders and viola another Halloween card made.   I love this season and I love using up what I've been collecting over the years.

Here is the sketch and the link to the challenge #179 at   "FEELING SKETCHY"  You have 12 days left from today to enter this challenge.

The second challenge I am going to enter my card in is  "THE PAPER PLAYERS"  Challenge #PP366 is Clean and simple Spooky.     This card is basically black and white with a spot of purple so I consider it pretty clean and simple and the Spooky part has to be the cobwebs, thats spooky when you get caught in there with all the spiders.     Here is the link to "THE PAPER PLAYERS"  for all the details.
