First, last week I was so fortunate to crop with Lisa Swift and Diana Fisher. A little background about these girls....Lisa's work is often found in the pages of Scrapbook Trends. She has a recipe page in the October issue! Diana is the co-founder and inspiration behind Sketchy Thursdays. This is my first time playing along with Sketchy Thursdays, and I wanted to share with you on my blog! I used my Pink Paislee House of 3 resist papers from the For the Luv of Art October La Mode Kit, so artsy! I misted them with several colors for the effect shown. I would have posted yesterday but they were tricky to photograph and had to try again today in the daylight.

This layout was created based upon a sketch by Becky Fleck in Page Maps 2: More Sketches for Creative Layouts and Cards, which I talked about in my last blog post.
and here is one layout for Halloween!!!! My husband and I will be passing out candy. We will not be dressing up our dog Friday, by consensus of my husband and Cheslea Lately. I would be tempted, however, my husband has outvoted me. LOL Anyways, this layout shows most of our indoor decorations.

Finally, as I promised, I wanted to share my great find for my notebook for shimelle's True Stories online class. It's just a little notebook with a typewriter theme from Michael's and it is just $1. There are similar designs besides the typewriter, and I know some stores in my area were already sold out of the typewriter. If you are interested in it, your store might still have it!
