Hot diggity, it’s Friday and I’m not even late for the challenge!  And I’ve posted two days in a row, it must be a new kind of record for me!   Our challenge was to use the layout on page 12 of the Holiday Mini

  • Stamps:  Autumn Harvest, Define Your Life 
  • Inks:  More Mustard Craft, More Mustard, Basic Black, Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie Classic
  • CS:  More Mustard, Naturals
  • Misc:  Chocolate Taffeta, Gold Brads, On Board Trimmings Chipboard


This was a photo that I cut up of Adria and her best friend, Sarah.  We did a leaf shoot a couple of years ago and of course, pictures still aren’t scrapped.  I’m thinking I should have a scrapbooking retreat for myslef and my customers one of these days!  Anyhoo, I needed to do the mirror image of the sample as not to cover Sarah’s face.  Looking back, I didn’t realize the On Board Garland Greetings have chipboard leaves and that would have been perfect.  I was a bit distracted this morning by Hurricane Ella when I was working on this challenge

The circle center of the ornament did work ok.  I simply sponged the mustard craft pad directly on the chipboard and allowed it to dry.  I tried stamping and coloring the chipboard itself but I wanted more coloration variation so cut out a watercolored pumpkin instead.  I’m itching to try the snowflakes in the same On Board pack and use a black and white snowscene.  I think it’d make a great 6×6 xmas card! 

Toodles, we are experiencing the eye of the Hurricane as it’s nap time and all is peaceful, calm and quiet.  I must get some work done before the "eye" of the storm moves off and we are regaled with the full force of Hurricane Ella again!
