One more Halloween

  I finally finished this layout. Adrienne and Ben did not get any really good pictures this year so had to make do with what I could get. Our family has had the crud big time the last 2 weeks. Poor Zade ended up at the hospital a couple of times, Dear hubby actually missed work and that NEVER happens so this has been on my desk for awhile waiting for a break to get back to the craft cave. Right now it looks like the worst is behind us.....Happy Dance!!
  So here is the sketch #172 at Sketches in Thyme.
And here is my take......
The papers are all from Carta Bella Spooky and so are the workdstickers.
I drew the rocket on using MTC. and the buttons of course were from the stash.... the stars actually came from the dollar tree!  I have not put buttons on a layout in so long it was fun!

Thank you for spending your time with me. I hope today finds you healthy and gives you many reasons to smile.

Back again

  I have become the world worst crafter/blogger. I have really been going through a rough patch and am not sure how long this return will last. I am truly hoping that we have discovered the issues and I can get back on track. So thank you for sticking with me and really hope to be sharing consistently again soon.
   This is a double layout which I do not use often so they fight with me, but I am happy that I stuck with it and defeated this sketch ! This is the November double sketch at Stick it Down.
As soon as I saw this I knew these pictures were perfect for the sketch. Adrienne was having a tough time getting into Halloween this year which is not typical at all. She usually is the pumpkin carving queen but this year just barely got it done. The big boys were very into it and actively worked on theirs. Zade didn't like the feel of the guts at all which led to some adorable pictures. I am thankful that Ben captured the day so that I could do this sketch!!
The papers are a combination of Graphic 45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland and Carta Bella Spooky. Both are dug out of the stash. I am not a big fan of Halloween so it takes me awhile to use my collections up. The title is Neals way of saying carving pumpkins... just had to document that, he says the funniest things. It was cut with MTC.
The embellies were all dug out of the stash.
I used my favorite stampin up gorgeous Grunge set and Lawn Fawn fake tan to create the background paper.
 Thank you all for stopping by. I truly appreciate each one of you that takes the time to visit my little blog.
May today bring you many reasons to be thankful.
