Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

Good morning my scrappy friends!  Hope you had a great weekend.  Chilly here in NJ but I love it!  My kids, not so much!  They weren't happy that I had the windows open before they went to school but it's so invigorating, this fresh cold air!

Yesterday in between a boy scout event, cooking dinner and laundry, I found some time to make a LO of my son.  I don't love this LO but  they all can't be masterpieces, now can they?  I'm sure I'll tweek it a little bit this afternoon once I get home from work.  But for now, here it is:

I made this for the Frosted Designs blog using fall colors, ink and bling.  The prize for this month's winner is....

Summer photo using Fall colors

Good morning my scrappy friends!  Slept in again and now will miss church, boo hoo :(  Guess we'll just take out our bibles this afternoon for some between the mounds of laundry that needs to be washed!  But before any chores, lets see a scrapping page!

I made this LO featuring my daughter from 2010 during a 4th of July party at my sisters house.  Her dad, my husband, was traveling for work and I tried to plan so many things so we wouldn't miss him so much.  It worked for the most part!

I was inspired by Colorful Creations October 1st challenge using a mood board and sketch.

I also used the color board from Scrap Much? for this month...very similar colors to Colorful Creations.....

Here is my submission using the various fall colors even though the photos are from the summer. I love using the "wrong" seasonal colors for my layouts!  The colors worked with the toys, carpet, and fire place stones.

Lastly, I'm submitting my layout into the Pumpkin Spice #87 challenge - using orange and Child's Play Challenge Jack in the Box challenge.  The toy reminds me of the toys my daughter is playing with along with with bright colors.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
