Also, at the Club CK blog, I submitted this layout for a concept of "paper strips"... I used another one of Susan Stringfellow's awesome sketches that can be found at SKETCH SAVVY (see sketch below my layout). I used a REALLY old Cosmo line called Get Happy. Love the colors...that's why I bought it..wonder why it took me so long to use it (over supplied..maybe?!!!)
And....also at the Club CK blog there is a color challenge... mine is based on Rose Red, Olive, Pumpkin & Suede (brown).
And last but CERTAINLY not least...I found a new challenge blog that looks interesting, so I'm playing along this month!!! It's called SPARKLE DREAMS -- they have a sketch (a card sketch, but I made it into a layout)....and the challenge was also to use sparkle & flowers. So there for "sparkle", I have white glimmer mist on the background & also a rhinestone brad as the flower center. For the "flower", this was a little tough since I did a boy page..but I snuck a flower in and also the little card has flowers on it (I thought the card was stretching it, so I made sure to add the red flower). Sketch is below my layout. -- Oh I also used my October Scrapbook Circle kit for this one! (except for the red flower & rhinestone brad)
