Halloween Time!

Thought I'd share a quick Halloween layout. Last year, Eric and 3 of his friends dressed up like the Avengers. This is just a picture of Captain America and Thor. Gotta love Thor's flowing locks... ;0)
Have a happy and safe Halloween! You can send any extra candy my way! :-)

Pop Culture

Hey, everyone! Team B's creations are up over on The Creative Type. The prompt this month was to scrap about something "pop culture-ry." I chose Pinterest. Sigh. I love Pinterest.
The super cool part? Amy Tangerine is guest designing for the next 2 months and has some cool stuff to give away. Play along with us here.

Layouts to share

Hello, hello! I have a few quick layouts to share with you this evening.

First, I've been wanting to do an all-white layout for awhile. I've always thought the all-white layouts looked so elegant. Here's what I came up with:

Next, I'm going to try to do an all-black layout. I think that could look pretty awesome!

My second layout was created with the November
Studio Calico kit:
I know the picture of this layout isn't the best. I'm going to try to see if I can get a better picture this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate those of you who check in every time I update. It really does mean so much to me!

Another "messy" layout

I am totally loving this "messy" style recently. I feel like I am able to use so many embellies. Plus, I can create quickly when I am messy. I just throw things down on the paper and usually end up really liking the end result...
I am so in love with the most recent Studio Calico kit. I could not wait to dive in and play when I got it. The exclusive Sassafras paper I used as my background has got to be one of my fave papers recently. I just love how bright it is...you can't help but be happy when you see it!

Thanks for popping by...enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I will begin with my "random other things..."
