More than Favors' Challenge #16 - Fall/Thanksgiving theme

I checked out this challenge and I loved it for 2 reasons...... first, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday (same feeling of Christmas, without the stress of buying gifts) and second, I love making layouts for Thankgiving. The colors are great and the family theme makes it so wonderful to work with. This isn't one of my newest layouts, but I thought it fit the description for this challenge. I wish the picture came out better, but my camera is not as great as I needed it to be, but I hope you like it.

Recipe for my layout:
Bo Bunny pattern paper
Bo Bunny double dot chipboard letters and swirls
Bo Bunny Sticker Sheet
Bazzill Cardstock: Brown, yellow and red
Pop Dots
Brown cat's eye chalk

This week's Wacky Wednesday is a Color Challenge... The Colors are Brown, Green & Blue. You are allowed to make any project for this challenge as long as you use the colors. Make sure you go by More Than Favors and enter this challenge- the prizes are great!
Recipe for this layout: Bazzill Cardstock Brown, Blue and Lime Green. The felt branch is self adhesive The flowers are from Prima's So Cute line. This layout was inspired by a class taught at my local store but with a few personal touches to make it my very own. I love the colors and how awesome that it matches this challenge!

My Daughter, Erika's Reading Project

My 4th grader has this really cool reading project. She had to write her own story about a pumpkin scared about being alone.... and it need a book cover, title page, and dedication page. She wrote the greatest story and I help with the cover using my cricut (oh yeah, we kicked butt). Check out the pics and let me know what you think.

I worked on Last Year's Halloween Layout this week...LOL

How many of us are really up to date with our scrapbooking... I had a great time this Halloween and took some amazing pictures, but ofcourse when I sat down to scrap, I worked on last year's pictures. LOL
