"October Afternoon" craze, some sketches, and the color purple

Have you ever been at your favorite store when your favorite new paper line arrive and your favorite friends are just like you??? well... I have a story to tell in pictures.... not words. Judge for yourself!!!!

...and after we sorted out "Who gets what",  this is what I made.....

Since I do not have any children to scrap I told my husband we need to go to a park and play with swings!!!!
(ha, ha, ha). It was a great day.....

This is the first time ever I scrap the color purple. I challenged myself to "think outside the box" and try.
I used white, turquoise, purple and deep red. I made most of the flowers and I used the cricut for the big flowers and the letters.

Stuck-on-Us-Sketches has a new one this week. 
You can check out the DT pages here:
I scrapped baby LT and his "ball". It was a 4lbs watermelon!!!! he is just too cute.

This next sketch is from Liz Qualman ( Another great one! I challenged myself again with bright colors.

Since I had left over papers and two more pictures I decide to make a second page!

Have a blessed and wonderful Sunday!

    Ok sweets, you kicked some serious butt here!!!!
    I am just so drawn to bold colors that I LOVE every single one of these pages!!!
    I adore all your bright and happy embellies...

  5. Wow! you've been busy again .. glad they let you have some of the goods! Heehee! Well, unlike Leah ..

  8. Well... We have been busy...LOL Fantastic layouts and loved the "fight for the paper" photos..You all looked like you were having such a fab time..too funny!! I love bold colors on layouts, but just can't get my colors right..LOL Loved the color combo of the purples, turquoise and red (would never of thought to put those three together), and then the watermelon layout had some super fab colors on there as well.. They are all great, but these two were my ultimate fav's..
