Sites and Challenges:

Sounds fun, right?!  I sure hope you join in!  Be sure to stop by Challenge YOUrself for full Scraptober Fest rules and also throughout the month for some inspiration!  And stop by the participating sites as well for even more inspiration!

Let me start you off with some inspiration by sharing what I created combining all (4) challenges.

Ahh, here I am all relaxed and carefree since just boarding a cruise ship for a girls scrapbook week at sea.  Wouldn't you say I'm looking pretty wise?
I created this layout with my September Gossamer Blue scrapbook kit.  The papers were perfect for the color combo being asked for and they highlighted my photo nicely as well.  And check out all the little bits, just perfect for the finishing details.

I combined all (4) challenges and the first is a photo of me for Challenge YOUrself.  I just love the title and I felt it was fitting with my photo.

My two washy tapes used for Scrap Our Stash challenge are seen here, along the border.

This photo captures the color combo required at My Scraps & More.

As for the sketch challenge at The Memory Nest, I turned it and went from there.  As you can see, I made it my own and went in my own direction but this is my interpretation.  So this is proof in showing you how working with a sketch as a starting point is a great inspirational tool.

Again, I hope I have inspired you in some way to join in with us!  I really look forward to seeing what you create.  Go get busy and good luck!!

Thanks for stopping by today and as always... happy scrapping to you!
