Riverwalk Fun

Another entry for my son's 2nd year book, this has taken me a while. I am not finding any time to scrap and it's a little sad, but I hope to get in a couple hours sometime this week!

I tried a new technique on this one - an emboss resist using the Cuttlebug! All in all, it was pretty simple. I wanted to stick with the simple colors and I am really happy with how it turned out!

August Monthly Challenge - Create A Scene & Fall Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Fall Blog Hop from the talented Circle Sisters!

You should have just come from Brenda's fabulous blog and project!

If you stumbled upon my page and want to start at the beginning, head on over to Kristen's page. Have a great hop!

For this month's challenge, we are creating a scene! I LOVE my Halloween carts and colors so I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone and get another layout in my son's 2nd year book done AND do a fun Halloween scene for this challenge! I had a lot of fun with it and spent WAY too much time on it and used my Happy Hauntings and Oct. 31st carts. Enjoy!

Fall is such an amazing time for photographs and creates some wonderful scrapbook opportunities! I hope you are already planning ahead for what is coming!

Next stop on your list is the amazing Nancy!

Here's a showcase of all the amazing Circle Women that are a part of this hop!

Magazine Challenge - Pop Up Neighborhood

This magazine challenge asks us to use Pop Up Neighborhood to create a project. Well, this was SO much fun. First off, I LOVE this cart. It's probably my favorite Circle cart yet. I wanted to create some artwork for my kids' play room and this is what I drew up. I used a fabric background and fabric for the forefront hill and everything else is paper. My husband even helped me convert a frame into a shadowbox!
The size is 12x18 because I wanted to get a lot of little detail in it. I think I succeeded! It turned out just how I hoped it would and I hope you enjoy! Since there are SO many cuts, it's impossible for me to get into the sizes of each one but it took me about a week working on it some each day. I hope you can take the time to appreciate all the shading I did and all the shimmers to capture the sunlight. I am an artist at heart so I got to use lots of skills in this creation!
