Some misc layouts and cards for November! Mini Flower Tutorial...

I have been extremely busy and forgot to post these last layouts and cards I made these past 2 weeks!
All Dressed Up
I just got these awesome crocheted trims last week from Australia and HAD to put them to use! I don't use my cuttlebug enough, so have been keeping it out to use more!

 Where is Bella??
Had a lot of fun with this layout it's an explosion of colors! I used two hand made flowers on this layout! I got to use some scraps I had laying around. Used a hand punch for some circles, and embossed my you already know I am obsessed with these doilies.. ;-) I also got into the ripping and distressing of paper...
 Merry Christmas! I got the candle stickers for $0.63 at Michael's on Wednesday...
 Pumpkin Patch 2010
I love this new "glitter glam" ribbon that I recently bought.. This was perfect to use my wooden pumpkins that I have had in my stash as well!
 Give Thanks
Simple Give Thanks card..
 Simply Thankful
Always wanted to emboss the leaves with my cuttlebug..

I made some flowers last week! I used the Accent Essentials Cartridge...
 Cut out two types of flowers..
 Misted with Glimmer Mist....
 Twisted the edges with stick and fingers..
 Stickled the edges and added bling in the center!
 Finished product!

New challenge at The Paper Variety!

This week's fabulous challenge over at The Paper Variety is to
 "use the word "thanks" or "thankful" on your paper project. "Thank you" works too. But if you're not sure, please read the fine print to be sure your entry qualifies."
Here is my layout!

  As I started this layout I knew I wanted to scrap this recent photo of our 8th Wedding Anniversary, but how could I leave out our daughter, so I said THANKFUL FOR FAMILY ;-)
I used My Minds Eye Lost and Found TWO paper, American Craft Thickers and Rose Trim, FAMILY sticker, bling, Prima swirl, and misc chip board. I enjoyed distressing this page as well.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is my CREATIVE TIME
They are providing our winner with a "Just a Little Note to Say" stamp set!  
Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

Laughter week at The Paper Variety!!!!

Here is my layout for this week's fabulous challenge over at The Paper Variety! I have been wanting to scrap this photo of Marc and Bella for a while (it was taken back in MAY)  and finally had the right challenge for it!!! I just loved how they were "horsing around" having a blast.. tons of laughter..
I actually POPPED UP the title, but can't find the close up pictures now to show it.. but the title is on big Pop Dots off the page.. I used some Making Memories paint, the main white 12 x 12 sheet is Bazzil, and I used Echo Park Country Drive paper! I added some American Craft Rose Trim, Doilies, Bling, and some fringe... 

So that's our challenge this week! Create a humorous layout, card, or altered project. Something that brings a chuckle!

Our sponsor this week is The Paper Bakery!
