High Energy - CMS # 72

I seemed to have lost a day...

This was supposed to posted yesterday, but sometimes life gets in the way.

These were some great colors to work with at Color Me Scrappy.  Very fall-ish and muted, which is right up my alley.

Have fun with it!

Thanks for stopping in!

Never Quit - Challenge Yourself #11

Challenge YOUrself did it again.  This month, you REALLY have to CHALLENGE YOURSELF!

I love that with this challenge, really have to think about what you are scrapping.  Finding the picture is the easy part.  Putting together a page with a title that goes along with this theme is a bit more challenging.  I loved every minute of it.

Challenge YOUrself #11: Scrap An Affirmation
Scrap an affirmation that YOU would like to attract into your life.
(Remember to include YOU in the layout)

We also have a great sponsor this month, so be sure to join in on the fun.
Thank You Paper Issues!!

So, here is what I came up with...

I knew I wanted to start with a white BG.  All the arrows are made of a bunch of scraps.  They were not popping the way that I wanted, so I inked them all.

And a few close-ups.

Added a little stitching and some embellies...

Another embellie and some thread on the other side...

Thanks for stopping by!

Dreams Come True - CMS #71

Check out these great Fall colors from Color Me Scrappy!  And combined with the sketch from Stuck? Sketches...  Let the creative juices flow!

Here is what I came up with...

We purchased a cabin earlier this year and it's a dream.  My husband can ride around on his tractor and make trails all day throughout our 80 acres!  He loves it!

I used my silhouette to cut out the circle with the wood grain.  I've been using it more and more and loving it!
