What's New

Hi friends!
It's Thursday & a chilly day here too! I love it!! I am ready for days with a nip in the air, drinking hot chocolate or hot tea and having yummy soup for lunch &/or dinner. Pulling out the sweaters & jeans, boots & thick socks! Cuddling up under soft, warm blamkets reading a good book or watching a fun movie-it's all fine by me!

Today I have a few layouts to share with you. The first one was created using Stuck?Sketches October 15 sketch:
And here is my layout:

I used a mix of Studio Calico papers & older scrap pieces from my stash. The alphas are AC Thickers & the banner under the photo is from Heidi Swapp. I misted it with red and blue Tattered Angels' mists. Both of the journaling cards that I placed under the photo mats are from Echo Park.

The next layout was created using the last bits & pieces from my Memorable Seasons October kit-Simple Stories' Smarty Pants: 

 All papers are Simple Stories; the alphas are from AC Thickers and the feathers are from Studio Calico. I also misted them with Tattered Angels' blue & green mists.
I didn't have any more "e's" in the pack of blue alphas, so I used a "9". I thought it looked like a young child who writes some of their letters backwards (like Ty used to)-so felt it was apporopriate on this layout!

    I am also entering this layout in the challenge over at Scrap the Boys, which is to use blue & green. I will also enter this at Color Me Scrappy. Their challenge is to use feathers!
It's crazy to look at these 2 layouts together! On the first one Ty was not quite 2, and the second one he was getting ready to start Kindergarten!!! It really seems transient when I look at them side by side.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope y'all have a great night!
Stay scrappy,
