That Girl

Hello! I played along over at Once upon a sketch's  October challenge. The challenge is to scrap the girls in your life. For my interpretation, I used a picture of myself when I was about 20yrs old. I used modeling paste and watercolors for the flowers. I don't usually use much orange but I really like the pink/orange combo. My journaling in on the back. It reads:

The things I could tell that girl. The trials and tribulations she will go through. The doors that closed. The ones that broke her heart. The better doors that opened. The times she wasted worrying. The other times she didn't worry enough. The people that will make her stronger. The people that will only tear her down. The path that she walked when surely the other may have been easier. In the end, I'm not sure I would tell her anything. Her heart led her here and here there are no regrets. Only lessons learned that make me who I am. She can stay back there without any clues while I live for today. 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Love This Smile

Hey there! I completed a layout using the current sketch #280 at Creative Scrappers. It's a really fun sketch and I had a lot of fun with the circles. I am also playing along with the Bingo challenge at Scrap Our Stash challenge #19. This is a really busy LO for me with all of the patterns but the pictures are so big and bright, I think it works pretty well. I used polka dot paper, Polaroid, wood veneer (heart & sequins), wood veneer sequins, and stickers. Thanks so much for looking!!

One Fall Day

Hello Scrappy Ladies! I'm playing along with a couple of challenges to make a Fall themed layout. So I live in Florida. I don't have beautiful Fall photos. Or weather. But we do have cooler mornings, some leaves changing, and festive activities that make it 'Fall'. 

Frosted Designs Friday challenge is to create anything with a Fall theme. I do love Fall (even if ours is not as beautiful as some states) and it was a fun challenge. 

I am also playing along with Challenge Yourself to create a Fall themed LO including your favorite part of Fall. My favorite part of Fall is the Halloween festivities. This picture is of me and my son at the corn maze picking out a pumpkin last year. He had such a blast! Can't wait to do it again this year! Since we don't have any pumpkins in the picture, I kind of went 'pretty' with it since that's been my mood lately. 

So including this one (finished in September), that was three LO's completed in September...YAY...I'm on a roll, LOL. Let's hope I can get back into the swing of things in October! Thanks for looking!!
