So much to share! I just finished this first layout for the Take Three Challenge at
Screen 2 Scrap. The Night at the Museum Criteria was:
1. Use a group photo (3 or more people)
2. Yellow or gold title
3. Use one element from the poster - a dinosaur, monkey, plane, rocket, squid etc.....OR
3. Something inspired by one of the figures in the poster.......
On "the climb" I used the planes from the poster as inspiration. I broke into a very old stash of boy rub-ons for this one and I journaled in black and in white to add more contrast and interest. This patterned paper is about as old as my teeth too so it was nice using some of it up. I nabbed that B-SAFE Bingo card from my electric company when making a payment for the restaurant. I thought it would make a great accent on a boy page.

Here are a few new Fall/Halloween layouts that I made for several forum/blog challenges.
I stamped!! Yes, I finally broke out my acrylic stamps and put the owl on "f@ll f@vs". I hand cut the stem that the owl in perched on. Another plus was that I put a tiny dent in my eyelet stash. Always good to get rid of I journaled on "10 REASONS" very similar to my last Jenni Bowlin die cut paper like this. I used some OOOOLD Halloween ribbon on this one too and who uses foam stickers anymore?? lol This layout is my submission for Challenge #1 in the Can You Survive the Nightmare at Scrapbook Dreamer. "FALL FUN" is a simple layout of my son and some of his classmates in Kinder last year. I was fortunate enough to get loads of kinder pictures from his teacher last year at the end of the school year. She knew I was a scrapper and thought I would appreciate them. Boy was she right!! I'm having so much fun working on his Kinder album with all these great pics! How adorable are those turkey hats, I ask you?????

Thriller Night was made for several blog/forum challenges. I hand-cut and painted the tree from my good ol' faithful cardboard backing from the pizza at supper ;) I designed the sketch for this layout while at work one night. I really like how this one turned out.

I have several more to share but it's late and I need to get to bed.

Happy Friday!!!
