Thank You ....

Thank you to the hubs for entertaining the girls all weekend - I know it doesn't need to be said but thank you anyway! I like them a whole lot more going into this spring break week with them home!
Thank you to Lori at Apron Strings for having this birthday celebration and issueing challenges every day all week! I finished another scrapbook!
And so we begin! Another five layouts done - in record time - two days - for me that is record time! And I love them all - this first one especially!
This one was done for Apron Strings Birthday Party Day #8 - to incorporate swirls on your page; cut them, draw them, stitch them, outline them with bling, buttons, butterflies, whatever. This challenge I saved for last because I am not a swirl girl! I can never make them look right however I have done 2 swirls in the past two weeks and I am pleased with the outcome!I used Crate Paper's Restoration which I have been keeping uncut and untouched waiting for the perfect layout. I found it - these pictures of Amory and I from the Christmas tree farm!
Love You
And the next one - gotta love that face! This layout was done for Birthday Party Day #9 to add a bit of chaos to your page by putting something on an angle; a photo, embellies, journaling, title, a whole block of stuff. You decide. Um yeah I can do chaos - I live in chaos due in part to the child in the photo! :) I used October Afternoon on this - another one of those I was "saving". When in fact I just couldn't force myself to cut it up!
I Won A Cupcake
The next layout I did was random shots from Halloween - notice MOM in the shot - holy cow! And the title is reference to our zany, or if you will, batty house! This one was for Birthday Party Day #6 to create a layout using banners. I used lots of different lines on this - I would like to say one of everything from the halloween folder!
Just Batty
And the next is happy one for me - the Halloween BBQ we had with my best friends, their husbands, and kids. This one was for Birthday Party Day #7 to add some excitement to your next layout by using at least three ribbons on your layout. No problemo - I have so much ribbon I need to use it! I used Jenni Bowlin from the Apron Strings August 2010 kit and added blue ball trim ribbon and yellow ribbon to the red twill ribbon in the kit!
Eat Drink and Go Trick or Treat
And last but not least the trick or treat page - I used the March 1st sketch from My Sketch World for this one as well as Birthday Party Day #5 to incorporate scrapbook's version of sprinkles:  use at least 10 buttons or brads or, dare I say, eyelets on your layout. I used exactly ten buttons mixed in with my scrap paper circles. There was originally twelve but two got lost somewhere between when I was threading them in front of the TV and the layout!

Here is the sketch I used:

Whoooo Wants To Trick or Treat?

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day,
