The Magic of Winter

This was for a couple of my challenges for Toyota Chipper Clippers, and Frosted Designs. I am combining the challenges so that I don't go crazy :)
This picture was taken a few months before we found out my son Caleb was diagnosed with cancer, but with God's mercy he is healed and all better.
*** I forgot to add that I was inspired for this layout from one of my favorite websites Linda Albrecht

Silly Monkey

I love, love this layout for this months baby class. The monkeys on the Sweethearts cartridge were so cute and when Melissa got this paper in at the store I knew I had to put the two together. I just love everything about these layouts. I hope they do too.
Cricut cartridges used: Silly Monkey - Makin the Grade, Monkeys - Sweethearts, Scallops-Plantin Schoolbook and Vine - Calligraphy Collection.

Frosted Design Challenges

I love all of their challenges each week, it is really motivating me to scrap. The challenge this week was to use fabric on your layout. I haven't felt the greatest this week, so I combined the design team challenges. The small white stars and the scallop on the picture are felt. and I loved the inspirational sketch for this month.

Halloween Class

I had so much fun designing this class. I have been doing the baby for so long it was nice to change to something different. (Don't worry I am still designing the monthly baby class, I will post it later)
***I changed a few things on this layout and added a couple of things.
The patterned paper is the Spooky Alley Collection by Making Memories.

Weekly Design team challenge

Our challenge this week was to use at least one flourish on a layout/card/project. Come and play along with us, this challenge closes Oct. 9th and the winner announced Oct. 1oth. Make sure you check out what the other team members designed ( I also was able to incorporate my scrapbook clubs weekly amazing race challenge with this one. We were suppose to use a paint chip on our layout. I cut out the little butterflies from a paint chip and put them on my layout. It is so nice when I can combine them into one project. I hope each of you have wonderful weekend :)
