$1.23 Fall wreath

So I wanted something to go on our door but everything I had was made of metal and with the wind these days it was rattling and loud. So I rummaged in my stash and came up with this. I used a dollar tree foam wreath cut in half, cheesecloth that we had on hand, glimmer mist/ink to change the color (from my scrapping stash), Tim Holtz Tattered floral die and some felt that I bought. I love it and it is NOT noisy! I wish it was a bit bigger but I had just enough cheesecloth so it is what it is.

CKCB Challenge 3-Negative space

Good morning. Today I am here to share the last challenge for CKCB for September. Can you believe it is almost OCTOBER!?! WOOHOO! I love fall! I am one happy girl right now.

Challenge three was all about using negative space. Well I have been eying and wanting to try a negative tag/banner title treatment so this was the perfect challenge to try it out! I cut the title banners with my Silhouette Cameo (still love that thing!) I can't wait to see what you come up with in the linky!

The layout that took me five days to finish!

I am sure it was longer but we will go with five days. Man it takes forever to do a layout when you are doing five minutes here and there BUT I love this one and had to share! The title not only used up tons of my black thickers/letter stickers (I tend to not use black for some reason) but was inspired by a country song I love. I was so excited when I flipped through the pictures from the first few weeks of baby N's life and found this one that my awesome husband took. It was perfect!

Challenge one CKCB

So challenge one was to use something from your stash that you used to love but don't so much anymore. Well that would be several things in mine but it is almost purge time so I went with some SMASH tabs that I HAD to have but have just been sitting there. I cut them up and used them as a border and to house my journaling! YAY that I got a challenge done!! WOOHOOO!

Sept Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Hi all! I am SLOWLY getting back into the swing of things. I may not get any challenges done this month but I did get the kit pulled together! So YAY for small successes!

This month our kit came from Birds of a Feather August Kit AND as an added twist we were to counterfeit three new releases from CHA. So here is what I came up with. My kit this month is called Twinkle Twinkle Little Boy.  Once you are done here please hop on to JEMMA.

Here is a closeup of the items I decided to counterfeit from CHA: Jillibean Soup hexies, Maya Road patterned stars and several different washi tapes.
