Tessie Boo

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.

The fun colors, buttons, stitching, flowers with brad centers (my FAV)... you put lots of fun elements on here! It's very appealing to the eye!

That costume looks so cute! Too bad she doesn't like to pose like Willie does. You did a great job with all the challenges. Good luck on them all. I got my 52 week lo in about 10 minutes before cutoff this week. LOL
