Some My Scraps layouts...

Hi!  I just realized I have several pages that I haven't shared on my blog yet.  There is always so much fun going on at My Scraps and More that I just forget to post them here.  I am having a fun & relaxing Sunday, so I have some time to upload them here.  I hope you're having a nice weekend, and I hope our scrappy friends in the path of Hurricane Sandy stay safe!

This page features the new Midway collection from October Afternoon.  I was always hesitant to use OA because the patterns have always intimidated me.  But once I saw this line, I decided to dive right in, and I'm so glad I did!  This line was perfect for this picture of me and Reese on the carousel at Legoland.  If you've got pictures from the fair, carnival or theme parks, this line is just the ticket :)

This page was made for a {play} challenge, which was to use stamping on your page.  The arrows & cris-crossed lines are stamped.

Do you recognize this very old & ancient paper line?  It's the Green Stack from DCWV.  Yes, I still have it on my shelf :)  This was made for a challenge to pull out one of the oldest paper stacks you have and use it!  We tend to get enamored with the new lines, and our old ones get pushed to the back.  I saw this line in a while new light once I left it sitting dormant for a few years.  I love the earthy colors & designs!

I made this page for the Trick or Treat Crop that ends today.  The challenge was to use a non-traditional color on a Halloween layout.  This Witch Hazel line from October Afternoon has some blue in it, and I really never think of blue as a spooky color.  I love how it coordinates with the the oranges, greens & black.

Lastly, this page was also part of the Trick or Treat Crop.  It was based on an awesome Kristine Davidson sketch and my favorite candy, M&Ms!  I knew that I wanted to have a lot of bright, multi-colored circles on my page, so I dug out the circle mask & modeling paste.  Then I watered down some paints and sprayed my paper with water.  They dripped beautifully :)  The hardest part was waiting for my paper to dry.

Well, that's enough for now...haha!  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Don't forget, you can find all of these October Afternoon goodies in the My Scraps store HERE, along with tons of other brands!

 Hope you have a great Sunday :)
