Fast & Fun Layouts...

 I did this quick layout at SWARM last month...I used elements from a Page Element Swap and I added the title (cut from the same papers using Storybook Cricut Cartridge).  I added an oval cut for the journalling.  I decorated the journallign with some flowers, rhinestone brads, velvet flocked flourished, and ribbon.  Cute & simple layout.

I made this layout to show how to use the monthly sketch I give on my FB group and turn it into a layout.  The cuts are from a swap I was in...they are from the Sentiments Cricut Cartridge.  I will add pics after our anniversary this year. 
This is my Keith Urban layout...I kept it really simple as I wanted the focus to be on the pics.  I inked the edges of the photos with black permenant ink.  I layered the blue background on a black sheet of cardstock to give a frame effect.  Done!

Halloween Fun

 Another Halloween gone....

Jarek and I were a little more creative this year with the pumpkins.  I made the big pumpkin eating the little pumpkin & Jarek made the devil pumpkin.  The ghostly cupcakes were treats for Jarek's friends...I love the idea of putting them in a solo cup and then wrapping.  I just had to get a picture of one of the fiberglass beavers dressed for the holiday.

Jarek had a few friends over for a pizza dinner & then they left in a group to go trick-or-treating.  They came home at 8 with a little bit of candy...it was never about the candy though...and warmed up by the fire while roasting marshmallows & making s'mores.  It was a school night, so everyone was gone by 8:30.  On to Thanksgiving!
