I am still trying to create a page a week with Scrappin'-n- Chattin'.  I have had to use 2 passes so far this year, but I am still in the game.

For my page Week 45 page, I used the November sketch at Artful Delight.  I have really missed keeping up with challenges and Artful Delight was always one of my favorites.  The sketch this month is so versatile.

My page was created using an old Artful Delight kit.  I love all the elements and the colors were perfect for a fall page.  The photo is of our new puppy, Cinda.  I was away at show with our other 3 dogs, and Cinda stayed home with Daddy.  He was stacking wood for my scrap room.

Thanks for looking....

Halloween 2013

I can't believe I didn't blog in September or October.  I did create quite a number of pages following sketches and challenges, but just never was able to actually get the blog post done.

I really want to get better about blogging.  So that's what I am going to try to do this month.  I created my 52 Week layout for Scrappin'-n-Chattin' last night.  I'm still waiting until the last day to get my page done.  And my room is still a wreck.  But at least I am still creating something every week.

For this week's page I wanted to create a double page spread.  I have been taking quite a few photos of the dogs for Halloween.  I wanted something that had a larger number of photos on it.  I loved this week's sketch from Let's Scrap, but there really wasn't a lot of photos on it.

I tweaked the spread a little bit to add more photos.  I used the right page twice, in a mirror image.  Here's my layout....

Sorry for the poor quality photo.  I didn't finish until 10pm last night and didn't have the time to get a really decent photo.  Here is a closer look at each page...

I found that I am really light in Halloween paper and embellishments.  I will have to fix that.  Thanks so much for looking.
