Sharing the surprised look of Sam this morning when I caught her and Nell sleeping in my very favorite, very spendy leather chair. " What do you mean were not supposed to sit here??" Rotten to the core, but also very spoiled and how much trouble can you be in when I get the camera out first??Here's one of the make n takes featuring Tim Holtz's tissue tape.
Another, with Spellbinders and Tim Holtz's witch diecut!

A day off..time to create and a contest for you....

I had this wonderful, blustery, windy day off! Can't believe fall is gone and winter is arriving. It did give me a chance to create though. I finished my layout for Echo Park's Halloween Challenge. You can still get in on the contest, you have until October 31 to post's the link, Love the zipper, acrylic and the cool flower!!!

One more that I finished up today with My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup, new canvas Prima's and a banner I made with Melissa Frances' Crepe Paper. I used the Big Shot to cut out the banner and again to cut out the fun rosette with the new Tim Holtz die. Love the banner and those new Prima's.I might get one more done tonight, not sure.

MME's Blog Challenge 16, Black

Sharing the fun challenge from My Mind's Eye! Great fun and great way for me to get my pictures scrapped. The challenge; use black. I don't use a lot of black in anything, so that was interesting enough, but I had this great photo of Maxenzi and really wanted to get it done. It just all worked out. Here's the sketch. Here's my layout.
Close up of the flower and the beautiful bling button from MME's Lost and Found.
