Scrappy and Not So Scrappy Stuff!

Hello everyone!

I'm going to spend a good part of this weekend prepping for Thanksgiving festivities because I've got my Aussie in-laws flying in Thanksgiving day! So before time totally gets away from me I wanted to share with you two projects I'd been working on...

First up is my page for CSI case no. 46..

Look at that beautiful room! I love the colors purple and green in and of themselves but I don't often make pages with those colors together. And that's why I love working with challenges! They encourage you to try new or rarely done things, don't you think?

For my evidence I incorporated frames, animal accents, pom-pom trim, painting, textured element, and translucent element. As for my testimony I created a translucent "pocket" (the window) to hold my journaling tag.

I've always loved this quote and on the tag I write a letter of encouragement
to my oldest daughter to do just that.
I shaped the window outline with floral wire and used vellum as the "glass" to create my transparent pocket.

I had some fun making a collage element to this photo. The fairy hat is foil tape
stamped and decorated with glitter.

I'm not huge into fussy cutting but I'm glad I worked on these frames, I really liking
the effect...

My second project is very un-scrappy. A first for! I made it with the November Gauche Alchemy Dia de los Muertos kit  Talk about inspiration! Their kits are so cool because they include such unique, not-usually-found-in-scrap-kit type items! These were pretty easy to make and I've got a quick tutorial right here.

Aren't those stone skull beads fun!

Well hello there friend! :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
