I’m doing a little better than last month’s Canadian Scrapbooker’s Sketchy Challenge in terms of posting earlier.  Who knows?  I might get December’s challenge done on time!

After a ridiculous amount of begging and crying (and exaggerating), I finally got DramaQueen outside for her Fall photos.  Does she like them?  Probably not.  Honestly, I avoid showing her my layouts because she usually hates all of the photos I choose.  

Here is Sue Sykes’ sketch:

I have to tell you, those circles in the background confounded me for awhile…until I looked through my DCWV “Cinnamon Luster” Stack:

I knew the colours and patterns in this stack would be perfect for these pics of DQ.  And then I added a few cut-out embellishments from the DCWV “Industrial “Chic” Stack. These stacks make designing layouts so quick and easy, with all the matching papers in one big handy pack.

Can you see that May Arts ribbon sparkle?  I love their glitter ribbon! This butterfly is cut from glitter paper using one of my absolute favourite Spellbinders die:  Donna Salazar’s “Wonderful Wings.”

If you love your Spellbinders and die cuts, then this is one set you must have!

I’m still hoping to scrapbook some more Fall photos, even though our landscape is looking much more like winter and Christmas!

And look what I saw in the mall downtown!  Yikes!

Can you see ‘tiny Kelly’ in that gold ornament? ha ha! Didn’t plan that.  Hmmmm….now I’m getting an idea for Christmas photos this year! 

Yes, inspiration is everywhere…including the gallery over at Canadian Scrapbooker!  Hope to see your layouts posted there.  Click HERE to visit and see what everyone else is doing with this sketch.

    Love the layout! The colors in it are just stunning and even if DQ doesn’t like the photos, I think they’re beautiful!

    Love that you included two selfies in this post! The layout turned out amazing – I like how you have layered all the elements.
