November First .... WHAT???

I mean seriously what happened to October? I vaguely remember pumpkins and costumes, I am still almost comatose from too much candy, and well its Texas so it is fall weather which means the temps are in the 80s. But November - really?
The first of any month means new sketches, new challenges, more scrappy fun and prizes!
At My Sketch World new sketches have come out and lots of fun events and contests are happening on the forum - you NEED to come check it out! Okay Sketches - the layout sketch had my head going! The two large rectangles could signify a before/after layout, two presents for a birthday layout, or a split personality page! The possibilities are limitless!
I went with a color scheme for my blocks - one with cool colors for the "water" and an orangey yellow for the "fire". I love these pics of my girls - check out how serious Amory is while putting out her "fire".
Where Is The Fire?
For the card layout all I have to say is scrap pile! The strips scream for those little strips of favorite paper that you cannot bear to part with!
I chose to do a wedding congrats card for a friend getting married this December. I used all scraps and didn't cut any of them - just used them the size they were. The inside reads "Congrats on getting the ring ring with the bling bling! Happy Wedding Day!"

On to challenges! ScrapFIT is having a super fun challenge this first part of the month. On Workout #31 you need to use some those shapes you normally don't see in a LO - triangles, hexagons, and pentagons. Since it is November use some FALL COLORS!

I chose to use some hexagons. This paper was originally black, turquoise, and red hexagons. I traced a hexagon onto orange and brown paper and pop dotted it over the original colors. These are pictures of my girlfriends and I at Painting with a Twist. A really really good time - they taught us how to paint a beautiful picture all the while drinking Mimosas! I used a sketch by Liz Chidester on The Sweet Peach Crop Shop Blog.

One more thing to remember - The Hippity Hop Blog Hop! Who doesn't love a blog hop, right? Especially one with terrific prizes and inspiration! The hop will include some super fun challenge blogs - Sassy Lil' Sketches, ScrapFIT, Crop Suey, Scraptiffany, and Cuttlebug Spot.

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!
