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?
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.
