Scrapsketch & more challenge goodness!

Well, hello world! It seems my family is finally over the ickies going around, at least for the time being, and I have some scrappy goodness to share with you! I am hoping to get back on track with all my regular postings, including visiting your blogs and leaving comments!

This is a layout based on sketch #171 for Scrapsketch. If you haven't visited Scrapsketch yet, then run, don't walk over there right now! Stephanie designs some fabulous sketches that really help get the creative juices flowing! Not to mention she is super sweet as well! This particular layout is of my hubby, son and our son's BFF. The photos were taken at Frontier City's Fright Fest a few years ago and yes, I am just now getting around to scrapping them! LOL! My goal this month is to get ALL of my past Halloween photos scrapped. So far, I am about 1/2 way there and hope I can finish up before next weekend! This layout is also for ad challenge #4 over at From Here 2 Scrapternity, a very cool faith-based scrapping community I stumbled upon and am in love with! Make sure to check them out!

The cardstock and patterned paper is My Mind's Eye and The Paper Studio. I inked the edges of the photos and paper with StampCraft black ink. I used my Cricut and Indie Art for the title, and then used some awesome orange tulle that came in my Lady Marmalade kit from Gauche Alchemy. Also from that kit are the orange beads and the heavy duty orange thread I strung them on. I used some orange staples to secure the tulle and get the ruffle effect and a white Sakura jelly roll pen for my journaling.

I really enjoyed doing this layout, especially with so much time off due to dealing with viruses, and hope you do too! Make sure to take the time to hop on over to Scrapsketch and check out all the wonderful creations the DT came up with! Happy Scrapping!
