I want Candy!

I didn't get to spend Halloween with my youngest nephew this year, so I was on pins and needles waiting to see him in his costume.  So when my SIL sent me these adorable pics I had to scrap them right away!  Only problem....I had no Halloween themed product (or so I thought), then digging through my stash I uncovered this oldie but goodie line from Scenic Route called Salem.  I was so excited that the colors worked perfectly with my pictures!  I sure miss Scenic Route and I forgot how easy it is to use!  Anyone still have some in their stash?  If you do I hope I've inspired you to dig it out and use it!
Supplies used:  Patterned Paper:  Scenic Route Salem line; Chipboard: Scenic Route Salem line; letter stickers:
American Crafts Thickers; sticker: Scenic Route Salem line.

I created this layout for the Personalscrapper 52 week challenge, week 42 which was Banners.  I think I am actually going to complete all 52 challenges this year!  Of course we have a like 7 more weeks left and I am down by 6 challenges, but I think I can complete 13 more layouts by the end of the year!  I hope to find some scrappy time this weekend, and we are celebrating my niece's birthday this weekend so I will have more great pics to scrap then too!   Have a great rest of the week friends and get scrappy!

Sketch N Scrap 20

Can you believe it is only 3 weeks until Thanksgiving?  I can't!  I have TONS to do to get ready for the holidays and can't believe they are almost here!  It's a new month and that means a new sketch at Sketch N Scrap!  Here is my layout using this fun sketch featuring a single 5x7 photo:

Supplies Used:  Patterned Papers: Scenic Route; quote block: Teresa Collins; Letters: American Craft Thickers Sunrise;
metal: Making Memories; felt border: Queen & Company; Flari button: American Crafts Junior line.

This is my friend's son after playing catcher at his baseball game.  Love this pic don't you? I was so happy she let me scrap it for her!  Hop on over to Sketch N Scrap to see the DT's reveal, love the variety of layouts created using the same sketch! Fun stuff!  Hope you will find time to play with the sketch this month.  You have until November 30th to link up your take on the sketch HERE for a chance to win an awesome pack of flair chevron buttons from A Flair for Buttons!  They will look great on all your layouts! Have a scrappy happy week!
