My Minds Eye sketch challenge

My Minds Eye has a sketch challenge going on. What an adorable sketch! Me being a huge MME fan, you know I had to give it a shot! While digging through my stash, this gorgeous vintagy floral pattern spoke to me. I just had to use it….the rest of the layout fell into place from there! Oh, and the adorable little girl in the photo is me!

This is the sketch we were to work from

And here is my version

After looking at it for a bit, I decided that the blue plaid was to bold to go all the way across the layout. I cut the end off the right side, but now it is to dark to get good photos! Oh well!! I'll try again tomorrow! Here is it is anyway!!

All of the papers used are from My Minds Eye, as well as the frame, overlay, die cuts, words, and all of the ribbons. Most of the products are from the Wild Asparagus and 29th Street Market lines.

How about something a bit more season today!! I’ve had the itch to find myself a good scarecrow. After scouring some good craft sales and the seasonal sections in the craft stores, I found my self empty handed. Those that know me know I am going to find a way to create my own!! In my Life Preservers kit, was the most stunning SEI papers….lots of pretty copper foil and beautiful flocked papers. Perfect for a fall scarecrow!

To make the scarecrow, I started out with a preprinted tag board scarecrow I had purchased through Oriental Trading as a craft project for my daycare kids. With my printer, I copied each of the body parts for a pattern. After I used my pattern pieces to cut body parts and clothes, I inked each piece, and then assembled by attaching onto the tag board parts for stability.

Here is a lo I created using these gorgeous papers!

Have you used the Core’dinations Cardstock?! I *heart* this product!! It is definitely a new favorite of mine for creating a distressed look, and when I want dimension. You can sand it , tear it, and it is super cute when embossed!! So I am posting a tad after the holiday, but I wanted to share with you, one of my favorite projects using this product. All of the accessories on the house, and the clothes and accessories of the friends were created with a variety of Core’dinations, distress inks from Tim Holtz, and embossing folders from Cuttlebug. You can click on the photo to enlarge it if you want a better peak or check out the individual photos in my gallery.

Can you believe that is it less than two weeks until Thanksgiving?! I love thanksgiving! My most favorite holiday! A day to remember together all of the blessings God has bestowed upon us. With family all around, and delicious aroma wafting through the air….MMMmmmm. Speaking of scrumptious scents, time to bring on the next Scrpfit challenge! Whip out that favorite recipe early and get started….if you don’t have a picture, remember you have a perfect photo opportunity during your Thanksgiving celebration!

The requirements are:

1. Use red, orange or brown cardstock somewhere in your LO.
2. Use TWO patterned papers.
3. Use Ribbon
4. Use a favorite THANKSGIVING RECIPE and a photo of either the person the recipe came from or of the food or both.
5. The rest is up to you.

I used a recipe that I found several years ago in a Taste of Home magazine. It quickly became a family favorite and is requested for almost every family gathering. The best part, it is super quick and easy to make!!

Now I have some super scrappy news to share! ScrapFit forum is open to the public!!! Wohoo! Stop on by for a chat. We would love to have you! See you there!
