no guts no glory

Here we are carving our pumpkin in 2009.  Katie designed a kitten face, turned out so cute!

The sketch is from My sketch World

At my Scraps & More  this layout fit into Julie's 3*2*1 challenge.  I used 3+ pp stripe, plaid and other; 2+ embellies twine, bling, dimensional flowers; 1+ technique  spray and stamp. 

At Scrap 'N Chat I completed the Blitz Bingo from Oct. 5th.  I stamped, misted, used a button, orange, and twine.

You're Paralized

Sketch from Bev's challenge at My Scraps & More.

Title prompted by the song title "Thriller" at Scrap 'N Chat.  

I used some very watered down paints to create the background and the pp and stickers are Monster Stew by JilliBean Soup.

kit swap

Over at My Scraps & More they are having a "kit swap".  We each put together a kit with 3 pp and 4 embellies.  Here's my kit from Juliee.  Wow, look at the pretty papers and embellies.  Now I need to figure out a way to use them!  Looks like possibly a "girly" layout coming up. 

Sweet ride

Sketch from My Scraps & More sketch blog.  For my stamping challenge at Scrap 'N Chat I used a Stampin Up! Antique Cracking  stamp with Creamy Caramel stamped off on the yellow to tone it down a bit.
