Well, I waited until the last minute again to make my layout for Scrappin'-n-Chattin's 52 Week Challenge. I really did try to get it done earlier, and I had most of it planned out, but it went together and was uploaded with only 3 hour to spare.
For my page, I followed this month's sketch at SnC, created by my friend Theresa Neubaum. She creates such awesome sketches. I am so excited that she has been creating the sketches for our monthly sketch challenge.
I loved this sketch.....
Of course I wanted to enter TPV's challenge this week, which is my off week. The challenge this week is a recipe...
So much fun. Be sure to check out the design team's inspiration. And there's an awesome prize this week. Scraptastic Club is offering a $20 gift certificate for one lucky entry in this week's challenge.
I am still working hard on getting Tessa to pose for the camera. It's not working real well. She still runs when I point it at her. I got her a Halloween costume and was trying to stage the photo. She would have none of that. I took 25 photos of her, most of them not usable at all. I used a few from the attempted photo shoot to create my layout.
I used a pumpkin brad and a stick pin that Theresa made and gifted me last year in a bottle swap we did at SnC. I have been dying to use the stick pins and I am so glad I finally was able to use one. The flowers and stick pin really are raised off the page, so I am entering this page into this week's challenge at Lasting Memories, which is to add some dimension. I also followed the color challenge at Frosted Designs.
There is still time to enter the challenges at TPV, LM and FD. LM's is due by 9pm on Saturday. I hope everyone has a wonderful, crafty weekend.
