I wanted to carve a scary face, Bryant wanted a more traditional look. We settled on this:

It actually started with a binder that I won from a Studio Calico kit called 'Paris'. Instead of using the Paris map that came with it, I used the beautiful Hometown Collection paper from 'October Afternoon'. I was really drawn to this paper after seeing the great projects created by the DT at Studio Calico. I LOVE the colors. Blue is my favorite color anyways, so I had to have this paper.

I really meant it when I said I had a lot of October birthdays coming up. Today was one of my co-workers B-days. I made her this FUN little banner to hang in her new office (I LOVE this bright Junkitz paper!):

I also wanted to share this LO that I finally finished. It started from a card tutorial, by the very creative Nancy. I first learned of Nancy through her Junkitz DT days. She makes the most amazing cards. I took the idea from this one to create the LO below. I used the very yummy new Ambrosia line from Basic Grey and some cool Prima chipboard letters I had left over from a past Studio Calico kit. I also got to play with a couple of my favorite paper punches, my Threading Water punch from Fiskars and my new (Halloween) picket fence punch from Marth Stewart. Add a couple of cute Fall pics of Bryant and voila! Here is the result:
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. I am off now to watch a little baseball...GO RED SOX!!

At one of the other stores I was actually able to get my hands on this whole line. The Spooktacular line from Teresa Collins . I know it is no secret that I LOVE anything by Teresa Collins. How fun is this paper and I even got one of the Bind-it All covers & leather closure to make a cool minibook.
Last, but not least, I picked up this really fun magazine at my local grocery store. All the projects inside are created using KI Memories/Love, Elsie products. There are some really great LO's inside. Lots of color and very 'Fun & Funky' as the title says. Check it out if you get a chance!
I have some really cool projects in the works and now I have some new pretty papers. It has really been a while since I bought anything new and I am just so excited and feeling very creative. I will share some new projects soon. I hope you are enjoying the long weekend and getting plenty of rest and YOU time.

Then it was off to the post office to ship off the next circle journal to Judi. Here are my pages for Jenn's. Her theme was fave's. She wanted us to use a favorite picture and a few of our favorite scrappy techniques. I chose this pic of Bryant at the beach from last month. We love the beach. Fun and a bit intimidating, but always a fave thing of ours. The techniques I used are tearing the paper (for the waves), handcutting (the flowers), layering (of the waves and sand) and a bit of bling. Good times. Good times.
Here is a close up of the first page:
