Inspired Blueprints Sketch 60 ...

Happy Monday ! If you are in need of some creative inspiration head on over to Inspired Blueprints   ...  Sketch 60 is ready and waiting for your interpretation ! The sketch is perfect for a large single photo of a special someone or a special event but, as always, several smaller photos can be used as well. I chose to use a photo of Tori, my niece's daughter, as Cleopatra for Halloween a few years ago. I used Noel Mignon's  fabulous October  kit "Sleepy Hollow"  for this layout. The kit is LOADED with fun Halloween embellies and papers. Here is the sketch and my spooky version with a few close-ups !! TFL and have a great week !!!

Home Study Halloween Projects !!

More Halloween in November ....

My monthly Home Study class at Right at Home is tonight and here are a few layouts I created using the new Page Maps 2 sketch book !! You know how I love sketches so when this book came out it was a no-brainer purchase !! As part of the class we are given papers and embellies to create with and last month we received some goodies from the Echo Park - Happy Halloween Collection. I broke into the hardly-ever-used purple ink to accent some of the papers and stickers. This is such a FUN collection and here's my first page using these products ...

Dressed 2 spook 
I kept the page kinda simple due to the busy text background paper. The cloud/moon sticker was a great place to anchor my title and I used Pink Paislee glitter chipboard alpha which was a perfect match ! Here's a few close-ups of the title, cute spooky tree and the buttons/brad cluster....

 For my second page I continued using the "Sleepy Hollow" kit from Noel Mignon - her kits ROCK BTW, please check them out !!! This page is also very simple to let the background paper from the Pink Paislee - Hocus Pocus collection show through. I added some rub-ons, felt embellies and a canvas strip that coordinate with the Hocus-Pocus collection. Here's my page and a few close-ups ...

I used a kit From Noel Mignon called "Sleepy Hollow". This kit was LOADED with fun, funky Halloween products, as you can see from my layout !! Noel's kits are FABULOUS so please stop by and check them out !! Here's Sketch #59 from IB and my take !!

Happy Halloween

Look at all the fun embellies on this page - my FAV are the skull-centered flowers, so spooky, in a cute way  !!!! 

Skull-centered flower
The center cluster is a fun combo of a paper flower, a metal charm, stick pins and a Jenni Bowlin button on top of a cut out of a clock inked in orange ! I rarely use orange ink but this page was screaming for it !!      Center cluster 

Another cluster
Here's another group of embellies that include a Jenni Bowlin Halloween chipboard button and another paper flower !! TFL and I'll be back with my news that I want to share with you !
