Autumn card

This might be one of the busiest cards, I have ever created.  There is a lot going on here.  I'm not sure what I think of it yet. 
The squirrel was given to me in a group by another crafter.   Thanks for taking a peak.

Autumn Layout

My confession.. This was a couple falls ago, and I am just now getting around to scrapping it.
Another confession, by the looks of these photos it may have been more than just a couple falls ago. LOL
Oh, one more confession, we had to use our neighbors leaves.  Why?  Well, we have dogs and where there are dogs..  well, lets just say we weren't taking any chances of landing in any poo!  LOL

my youngest son

It's been awhile since I have made a layout.  I found this beautiful photo of my youngest son Alex
and was inspired to scrapbook it.  My friend Christina took the photo of him while she visited us
from Texas. The layout is a sketch from Bev Code.

Alex is 20 years old, hard for me to believe.  Seems not that long ago, he was gabbing my ear off as a 5 year old.  

I love that Smile!

Laughing at myself

Have you ever sat down to make a card, and everything you do just doesn't turn out right?  Well I had a few problems on my card tonight,  but just find it so funny that I am leaving it that way.

This is obviously a little bee holding balloons, but the stamp underneath it says.  Happy Bird-day   (shaking my head)  I know I should change it, but its just so funny as it is, that I am leaving it.  My friends will get why I left it that way. LOL

I am entering this card into the challenge at YNSC ends on 10/21

Triple time stamping turned to Triple time patterned papers

Another card for The Scrapbook Blessings Club.  I found them on Facebook but their blog is here at:

Their current challenge is to Triple stamp, which is a lot of fun, I've added a card a few days ago for that challenge.  We all got to talking in the Facebook group and wondered if this could be done with patterned papers and of course, I had to give it a try too.

I am just addicted to The Scrapbook Blessings Club. Such a nice group of ladies.  Come for the challenges and stay for the friendship.

Scrapbook Blessings Tic Tac Toe and Link up for Pink

I chose to use pink brads, pink charm and pink flowers.  I used a Sherri Baldy Stamps digi stamp and put it on top of a photo in photoshop.  Printed it out, then decided that it didn't need color, I really like this look.

If you would like to join in on the challenge you can find it on Facebook at:

I would like to enter this as my third card at Link up for Pink.
