So 'Reveal'ing....

Hey yall!! It's another reveal day for me. I have a couple of new things to share with ya. First, today we have a fun new challenge for ya at ScrapFIT. Here is the link for you if you'd like to join us...we'd love to have ya....

This challenge requires you to use the following on your project:
1. A black/white photo
2. black/white cardstock
3. distressing of some kind
4. black/white patterned paper
5. 'Memories' as your title

I created a layout for this challenge. This has got to be one of my more simpler pages, but I'm kinda gettin' into it. LOL. I used the Cricut Home Decor' cart for my title. I distressed around the edge of the photo. I also brought in some ribbon, buttons, and stitching. Here it is...


Here is my LO #2 for this month at Treasured Scrapbooking. I was assigned the Kit #2 this month and it is just spooktacular! It has some of the CUTEST Halloween goodies in there! If you are looking for some cute Halloween scrappiness, go by the store at Treasured and pick this up today! It rocks!!!! This layout is called "Pumpkin Patch." This is Carter a few years ago at the local pumpkin patch. He got to stuff his own scarecrow, which is behind him. I sanded the edges of this pic to distress it up a bit. I also brought in some stamping in the background with an argyle patterned stamp from Stampin' Up. The alpha's are Thickers. Here it is:




Also, here is my altered project using the same kit. I received this little recipe chipboard album from one of my best buddies, Liz!!! She is just the sweetest pal ever and I am so blessed to have her in my life! Love ya Liz and thank you again for this album!!! I used some gold Stickles on the lettering. I tied black toile and an assortment of black/orange ribbons on the binder rings. All of the embellishment on the book was pulled from the aforementioned kit. I am so glad I did this project. I have been in so many themed recipe swaps and I filled this book with my Halloween/Fall recipe's I've received through the swaps. I used the Martha Stewart drippy goo border punch and the EK Success Boo punch on the front cover as well. Here is the outside cover....




Here is what it looks like when you open the inside cover. I left the orange square blank so that the recipient could put 'this book belongs to...' But I tell ya, this is one I might have to keep for myself! Tee Hee!
This little skull is from Tim Holtz. It is grungeboard and is included in the kit. I love it!!!

Inside of back cover.... (I know one of my fellow bloggers had asked me where I was getting these nostalgic looking postcards...I'm thinking it was Donna Mundinger???...well they are pulled from this kit. Go to the store at Treasured and I'm sure you can purchase them by themselves if you would like) :)

Back cover....I used the Martha Stewart 'graveyard' punch on this one.
Thanks for stoppin' by my blog today! I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week! Happy Scrappin' and see you soon!!!
