Better Late than Never...

I know, I promised more layouts and exciting news! Well...this momma has been so busy w/ Halloween and school this week that it totally slipped my mind! So sorry! First a couple of layouts that I made up from leftovers of my October Counterfeit Kits:

Brown and Pink layout:

I just loved this photo of my daughter and her aunt, and really wanted to highlight it! I will write journaling in the pink box by the butterfly (a digistamp from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff that I changed the color of and printed on cardstock). I used: Background paper is by SEI, paper scraps, frames and border stickers from Echo Park, pink ric rack ribbon, pink scalloped felt ribbon, brown crochet ribbon, Girls Paperie Vintage Buttons, pink primas, pink rhinestone bling by Jolee's

"I Want Candy" Layout:

 For this layout, I used the "Candy Inspiration Challenge from the CKCB blog, and I finally got some EIGHT year old photos scrapped!! For both of these layouts, I scrapped smaller photos, which is rather unusual for me!
Supplies used for this page: Background paper is Basic Grey Eerie, KI Memories black glitter skulls border, Basic Grey Eerie Pops owl sticker, and candy /lollipop stickers from K&Co. puffy epoxy stickers, black glitter Thickers, and Echo Park letter stickers.

Now, for my Exciting News! I was recently asked to join the design team over at Sketches 4 All! This is an awesome group of girls, and I hope you will come over and check out our challenges! We have lots of creative challenges to inspire you!

I am running my own challenge group, Margie's Creative Challenges- I hope you will come over and check it out! Right now, I am running a Pinterest Inspired Challenge (November 1-15), inspired by this pin:

My challenge is to make any creative project (card, layout, sewn, home decor), inspired by this pin, and post it to my group thread HERE , for a chance to win a small RAK from me!I hope you will play!
