I used the November sketch from Artful Delight for this layout from my daughter's birthday.  Followed the sketch pretty close but didn't leave enough room for the title below so placed it to the top right.  How can she be 40 when I don't feel that old?

How Corn - y

The challenge at Boy Meets Girl Scrapbook Challenge is to create a Fall layout using male photos only.  My son posted these pictures to facebook after he took his family to visit a cornfield in October and he decided to model some cornsilk facial hair.

Jingle Dress Dancer

I used sketch #44 from Sketch-N-Scrap for this layout of my beautiful great-niece dancing at a pow-wow last September. The cardstock, patterned paper, flowers, washi tape, sticker letters and thickers are all from my stash. Really trying to use up what I already own.


My daughter has always wanted to do a cemetery display for Halloween and when she put in the mulch and hanging plant garden in the front yard it was a perfect place for such a display. This week's challenge at Lasting Memories is to use lots of journaling. Usually I just do a name and a date, but for this layout I did the story of her wanting and getting her Halloween display. We already made a trip to Michael's today and got more tombstones, black roses and a skull, at 80% off, to use for an even bigger display next year.
