October Layouts

I LOVED this paper so much I made 2 layouts for my Close To My Heart Scrapbooking Group!!!

On both layouts we used the Jeepers Creepers Paper Packet, the Jeepers Creepers Compliments, and the Jeepers Creepers Washi Tape... which conveniently all come together in the Jeepers Creepers Workshop Kit!

Layout #1:

SUCH cute monsters!!!

Layout #2:

Definitely a sucker for sparkly black embellishments!

It's good that I am "forced" to scrapbook at least once a month!

KL October Scraplift Challenge

Kiwi Lane is starting something a little different for their bi-monthly challenges... scraplifting!!!

Can I just say I LOVE scraplifting?! Someone else already did all the creative work and you just get to build on their tried and true ideas!!! Big fan!

Our first scraplift challenge is a card from the second Kiwi Lane Idea Book on page 146.

Here is my take on it:

I didn't change much, did I? Sometimes you just don't mess with the cuteness...

Although I did add a bit of sparkle to my edges:

And of course dimension to my flower:

You have plenty of time, so check out Kiwi Lane's blog HERE and scraplift your own!

MWM Marigold #10

Another one on time!

Here is Scrapbook Steals' Mid Week Mojo Sketch Marigold #10:

And here is my 2-page version:

I really liked the quilted background on the artist's sample (check out the blog post HERE) so I kinda copied it!

The title and my son's journaling are my favorite:

I love to use my kids' current handwriting in my scrapbooks!!!

With my super busy background my photos were going to get lost, so I found a cute way to highlight them:

Little bit of bakers twine, washi tape, and brads to the rescue!
