October Challenge - It sure was a challenge!

Hi there - here are our October challenge scrapbook pages.  Michelle and I both started in the paper craft world being scrapbookers.  But, we've since learned that it is hard to go back!  We both found this challenge to be a real challenge!

We decided to take on a vacation scrapbook page or pages for this month's challenge.  First up are Michelle's awesome beach vacation pages:

 Above is the two page spread.  Looks great!!!

 I love the fun colors of these pages and the cut out flowers and shells.  Looks like the kids sure had fun in the waves, making sand castles, and looking for shells.  I know Michelle had a great time remembering this trip while she scrapped it :)

Next up is my page.  I had a hard enough time doing one page, so I stuck to the one ;)  I've had this scrapbook paper for about 10 years.  I guess I always knew I'd get to Greece one day!  It was fun to pull it out and scrap one of my favorite vacation destinations.

If you haven't scrapped in a while, you really should!  You forget how fun and challenging it is.  But, it sure does make the pictures come alive and you get to relive some wonderful moments and memories.

Thanks for looking!

October color challenge

I was able to sit down and do my stamping group's color challenge this weekend. 

 I was having a hard time with the colors until I thought of this cute little forest creature set.  Somehow, the Cherry and Pumpkin made me think of mushrooms!  I've never seen mushrooms outside of animations these colors, but I knew I had to do them!  They are really the only pop of color in this card, but they were the inspiration!  I love this set - so many cute ones to choose from!

Hope you have a wonderful day!  Thanks for looking :)
