Digital Scrapbooking Day 2012

This has been a busy and sad week, so it was great to be able to have an excuse and create this weekend. Time to let the dust just settle where it may and catch up on some of my projects. I am still hoping to finish some books for Christmas giving, although time is running out.

So here is my first creation. It is Halloween 2011 and Jessica and Erik ready to go trick or treating. We will be seeing the kids tomorrow for Erik's sixth birthday, and maybe I will get some photos from THIS year's Halloween festivities.

The template is actually from this week's Photoshop Friday lesson at Jessica Sprague. The papers are from Aimee Harrison's Vintage Spook, with a few elements from Echo Park and Quirky Twerp.

The next page shows last week's piles of leaves - WOW! Autumn is my favorite season - excpt for the "fall" part of it.

For this layout, I used the Charming Autumn kit by Designs by Brigit and a template by Katie Pertiet at Designer Digitals.
This next page shows some photos Dave took while playing golf a few weeks ago. The golfer is my father-in-law Jack.
This layout uses another kit by Aimee Harrison called Autumn Beauty.

Sparkly Skater

Hello - long time, no see!  It is time for our first Monthly Maniac Challenge, and a wonderful thing too since I have obviously been neglecting my blog.  The Monthly Maniacs are a group of gals who formerly designed for Paper Maniac.  We decided a fun way to keep in touch, was to participate in a monthly challenge.   

Every month someone new will provide a challenge to the rest of the group. 
This month’s challenge is SNOW. This is just kind of ironic because living in Minnesota, one would think there had been plenty of it. But other than a faint dusting now and again, we have had NONE of the white stuff!

 My card is based on last week's SCS challenge. I used an older Whipper Snapper stamp that I have in my stash. I have set a goal this year to "Use it or Lose It!" and I always thought this stamp was cute. I made the card in 5" x 7" since the image was so big and I wanted to have room for the designer paper. It is colored with Copics and glittered with Stickles. The pom pom, as well as the patterned paper, is from My Little Bicycle's Winter Twig collection. The card stock is from Memory Box. The snow flakes at the bottom are from various punches and odds and ends in my stash. Finally, the ribbon is from May Arts.

Please pardon the scan. I have my camera still packed in a suitcase from a recent trip and it seems I can't quite find it. I guess what I know what I will be doing the rest of the day - laundry!

Below you will find links to everyone’s blogs.  We hope you like what you see and come back again on the 20th next month to see what we have been up to! Thanks for popping in -
