The ribbon across the bottom is threaded through punched slots that I made using my new Ribbon Easy toolby We Are Memory Makers that I bought at the Scrapbook Convention last Friday.

Have a great day and week and I can't wait to see all the new projects you share.

Challenge Day At Bugaboo

It is time for a new Challenge over at Bugaboo. This week it is all about Homecoming and School Colors. Now if you were like me, homecoming was not on my dance card. #1 I went to a different High school every year that I was in school and College was raising kids and getting the classes in between everything else. Also the crowds I hung out with in school just didn't do dances. We were much more like Alice Here.
For my card this week I used Jodies wonderful Bobble head Kid Alice and papers by Colorbok. I printed the image on iridescent paper which I love to work with.
 Isn't that paper cool. It too is Colorbok (JoAnns)
Now run over to the Bugaboo Challenge Blog and check out the great examples by the Design Team and then Join us for some good ole Homecoming Memories.
Have a great weekend everyone.

New To Me Images

Well when I was commenting on entries for one of the Design Teams last week I came across this adorable image from Saturated Canary and I couldn't wait to grab some up. I also found out that they have a Challenge Blog so I just had to share these two cards I have made in the past few days.

How about this little Vampire girl ( I'm sorry I can't give you a direct link today because the Store is closed until tomorrow) I did this for the challenge this week which is a wonderful Sketch Challenge.
 I Used papers by Recollections (JoAnns), some Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter and a few antique buttons.

 You don't get the glare in the eye in this shot and you can see the shimmer in the shoe and trim that comes from painting with shimmer paint.
 This second card is made using My Minds Eye papers. I cut the flowers using SVG files from La. La. Studios and Tim Holtz Perfect Pearls Mist. I used Copics to color the image and used glitter pens for highlights. So much fun.
 The shimmer shows a little better here.
I hope you enjoy these and head over to the Saturated Canary and check them out.
Have a great day.

Anything But A Card at Bugaboo

On Mondays over at Bugaboo it is Anything But a Card Monday so I just wanted to remind you to stop by the Bugaboo Challenge Blog every Monday to be inspired.
So along those lines...Last week I made this cool Haunted House using a SVG File, Elmhurst Hollow, from SVG Cuts and decorated it with Jodie's cute Bugaboo Brats and Goofy Ghosts for the Anything But A Card Challenge.
 Well when I was looking through all my Holiday Bugaboo Images I came across this wonderful Haunted House Image and thought Hey! what a great addition to the Neighborhood. So I enlarged the image to a size that matched the previous house and set to work.
 Each section of the house is a front and back with a strip of 1&1/2" paper that has each edge turned under 1/4" to put them together. I cut out the windows and added orange mulberry paper and there is an opening in the back of each piece for a light to fit in. Then I glued all the pieces together. The little sucker really glows in the dark.
 I added the wonderful goofy ghosts again and then used the Halloween Skelekinz to occupy the scene. the spooky tree needs some owls still and maybe some bats.
 The thing about this halloween table is that it is a constant work in progress and so much fun.
 For my pumpkin Girlz I use pumpkins  from the pumpkin patch (or grocery store) and decorate them with hats and great big printed eyes and lips and hair and whatever looks good. They last forever it seems.
Check out those eyes. Now she needs a mouth and the little gal next to her needs a whole face.
 Most of the not paper decorations come from the dollar store.
 This pumpkin needs a whole face and I will be working on that today .
Well I hope you have enjoyed the House tour and I really hope you come back soon to check out what is new. I have a link now on the upper right column that you can sign up to be notified when I make a new post. All ways fun stuff being added.
Hope you all have a great day.
I will be adding this to the following Challenges this week.
