Autumn card



I am entering this Autumn card into two different challenges.  
First is "BITTEN BY THE BUG 2"    - Their challenge is to use a cricut cartridge cut on your project and having the theme - Autumn.    I cut the tree,  and the word Autumn.

Next I'm entering Challenge #136 - Harvest at  "THE PAPER GIRL CHALLENGE"
You can enter up to 3 projects there per challenge and this is my 2nd entry.

Click on the challenge names above to go to the challenge and get all the information and enter either or both challenges like I did.

Sketch N Scrap #106


Fall is not my favorite season but I do love the colors associated with it.   So today I made this fall card to send to my Dad in a few weeks.

I used the sketch #106 at   "SKETCH N SCRAP"  this is the link to all this months challenge and here is the sketch to use.


The Paper Players


I haven't made any cards in a couple of months and when I saw this weeks Sketch #363 at
"THE PAPER PLAYERS"   I really liked it and wanted to play along.   So I thought I would start on making some Christmas cards for this coming season.   I'm way behind on that.

Here is the link to "THE PAPER PLAYERS"   and the sketch so you can play along too.


Sketchy Saturday


When two of the yahoo groups I am were doing Christmas in July, I was busy packing and finding a lake house for us to move to.   So I didn't get any Christmas cards made ahead of time so now I'm starting to get a few done.

Today I used sketch #482 at  "SKETCHY SATURDAY"   I used scraps and papers from different Christmas 6x6 pads and put this together with a simple green stamped sentiment.

Here is the sketch and the link to "SKETCHY SATURDAY"

Find Spot


Well you know the expression a day late and a dollar short.   Well thats what I was with this layout.
When I started this layout today I had the print out   "USE YOUR STUFF"  Challenge #279 Fall is in the Air,  But........that was last week so when I went to link it I saw that the new challenge is
#280 - PETS.     So I guess it all worked out because the theme of my layout was our new kitten, Spot that we got last fall and how we kept finding him hiding in my fall basket on the kitchen counter.

But there was one more challenge that I do get to link this layout to in time.   and that is the Challenge #136 - Harvest at   "THE PAPER GIRLS CHALLENGE"  
Here in the Northern Hemisphere we are approaching Autumn and with that is Harvest season. I know we all have so many fun pictures and stamp images that feature the leaves changing and nature's bounty around us. So bring on your State Fair pictures, pumpkin patches, autumn cards, anything that makes you think of Harvest is welcome in this post.

Walter Cronkite Impersonation



I'm scrapping old pictures today.   This one is about a year old.   I might have already made a layout using one similiar to it, but this picture was in a stack on my desk so I'm assuming it was there for me to scrap.     This was such a fun day out with my brother and Dad,  we went about 50 minutes north of Kansas City and did some sightseeing in St. Joseph.  We had no idea there was a Walter Cronkite Museum at the college there, but so glad we saw the sign because it was fantastic and we all loved it.
They had this desk set up just like he sat out to do the nightly news and even the option of taking a picture with their camera set up and printing your picture there for free.   We all did it.

I'm entering this layout in a double challenge using the same sketch.
The September 15th reveal at "STUCK ?! SKETCHES"  and the double challenge using the same sketch at  "MY CREATIVE SCRAPBOOK"     These are the links and here is the sketch.
Plus there is an awesome blog hop going on with lots of inspiration for the sketch.
