Good morning,

I have signed up again for another fun month at Scrap-Friendzy (http://www.scrap-friendzy.com/)

Luckily this month the challenges are a lot slower, not as mad as Scrap U was.. phew !

October is a {FALL} SKETCH FEST. You earn points for all the layouts you complete.

The first BONUS SKETCH #1 this month was created by Carol:

I am trying to scrap all my older photos.. this is my son Brenton at Ngwenya Glass earlier this year. He decided to try his hand at Candle Making.. used left over Bo Bunny paper that I had.

Close up. Have had a bag of Teal Buttons for about 6 months now, and finally got a chance to use them all up ! The first Official Sketch # 1 for the Sketch Fest was created by Kristine:

I dedicated this layout to 2 of my wonderful sisters, Vanessa and Claudia. They are so special and I just loved this photo of them that I took 2008 Christmas.

I used left over Prima papers and flowers from the Convention too... making good use of all my scraps at the moment.. LOL

Close ups:
Used a paper wetting and squashing technique on this layout.. nice and different ... My first attempt, still have to work on it a bit.

Sketch # 2 was also created by Kristine.
I really tried to follow the sketch as much as possible, but had to move my embellishment cluster down a bit to hide the "family jewels" and also had to include Klaven's name.

Used left over Sassafras embellishments as well from the Convention as well as Fancy Pants papers.

Close ups of the layout:
Love these flowers from Sassafras, they are so pretty.

Sketch # 3 has already been posted too, but I ran out of time last night.. will have to do that tonight.. LOL

A close friend is having a birthday tomorrow so also had to quickly make a birthday card for her as well. This was just a quick one.. hope she likes it:

Have a good scrapping full weekend !

Hugs, Mich
