Happy Halloween

And yes, it’s snowing again – wouldn’t be Halloween without snow here.  I just put together a quick, fun  card based on a sketch at sketches4all

I’m Weird

I know it and the closer it gets to Halloween the weirder I get.  I love the drama of Halloween, the scary stuff (being raised on Alfred Hitchcock and similar movies). I’m not into the blood and gore but the thrillers and suspense, the unsuspected twist.  Anyway – I had this photo of Nathan with, I think. a cow moose skull.  I was playing around in photoshop and suddenly I got this neon alien-like image – I thought it would be perfect for a Halloween page.

No More Borders

I seem to be having a hard time photographing my pages these days and when they have a tiny border it’s pretty much impossible to get a good end photo.  Normally I can tweak the original to straighten it up or cut a bit of the page and it’s not noticeable but when there’s a little border like the doodled one on this page it’s obvious that that it’s cock-eyed.

something my teens don’t have any trouble doing !  I got a Teresa Collins/ WRMK kit recently and I just love the papers and colors in it.  I was ready to upload a few days ago but felt it didn’t look quite complete.  A few ink splatters was all it took to make me happy.

This page was inspired by a sketch at Boys Rule

Casual Elegance

Lauren has been experimenting with her hair – she loves it up this way – easy, messy but it still looks pretty cool

Inspired by Let’s Get Sketchy Sketch week #4

Quick Card

this is a very simple Halloween card using mists – the purple misting didn’t show up very clear in this photo but the orange did.  I created it for the sketches4all blog challenge and the sketch n scrap Halloween /orange card challenge

Boys Rule Sketch

Just discovered a new sketch site and created a page for the Boys Rule October 1st sketch.  I rarely work with green but I wnted to pick up the stripes in Nathan’s coat.  I actually kind of like the color combo with the grey and white and black.

Creepy Critters

What do you think this is?


I was gone for the past few days and was trying to catch up on some cleaning.  I came across the above near the rice cooker in the kitchen and thought some worms or maggots had bred in the past few days and wondered what the kids had been up to and what food they had left out.  Fortunately, the next thing I discovered was the electric pencil sharpener, tipped over on its side.  They were, after, all, not maggots but pencil shavings !! Whew!!

I finally got to scrap a few pages – here’s the first – inspired by the October 15th sketch at Stuck Sketches
