MCM #53 & #54 - Happy Halloween!

Here is the sketch for MCM #53
My card for this sketch is the one on the right in the photo below.
There was no sketch for MCM #54, just a whole bunch of cute cards to take inspiration from!
I used Jennifer Blomquist's card for my inspiration for the card on the left.

Opal #4 - @ the Library

Here is the sketch for Opal #4

And here are my pages.

Yearly Updates

 I want to make sure I get a page done after each of K's (& future children's) birthdays that is a little update about them & what they are doing at that age.
Here are K's first two update pages:

Doing these two pages back to back made me realize just how much she has changed in the past year. It's crazy! I didn't realize she had gotten 10 new teeth in a year, or just how much more interested in everything around her she is.
 Again I used the same style of paper from Fine & Dandy as I did on my last MWM (2nd Haircut).
It was perfect for these pages, simple enough to let the pictures and journalling stand out, but not plain.

Circa 1946 - CE October Challegnge

Here is the sketch, I found it on Pinterest and cannot find a link to the actual page, but it is from Studio Calico. (Sorry, that is as big as it will go without getting pixel-y)

Here is my page. I was chosen to issue the CE challenge for October, it is to scrapbook something that is part of your history.
Sorry for all the editing on this one, it has a lot of personal details. I am going to start an album of stories of our grandparents, and since most of the pages will have single pictures, I decided to do it as an 8.5x11" album.

Opal #3 - Haircut

Here is the sketch for Opal #3

And here is my page "K's 1st 2nd Haricut"
I have had this paper (& several others like it) for a while now, and while I love it, I have had no clue what to do with it. My friend Cristine used some yesterday and she inspired me to use mine! This was probably the easiest page I have ever done! I have plans for at least one of the other papers like this now!

Opal #2 - Luau!

Here is the sketch for Opal #2

 And here is my page.
The smaller pink flowers are off the lei I'm wearing in the pictures. K broke it and I thought all the little flowers would be fun to use for crafts!

Fall Fun

This is a sketch from October 2011 PageMaps

And here is my page.
She had so much fun playing in the leaves this day, I'm glad I got some pictures of her.
This page was so simple to do, but I really love how it turned out. This was the first time I have fussy-cut out some shapes and popped them up on top of themselves (some apples in the top right) I am pretty sure there is a term for that but I don't know what it is. Can anyone help me out?! :)

**ETA** This page was featured on Practical Scrappers on October 19, 2011.

It's the first time I have been featured, and I'm kind of excited about it! :)

Monkey Toes

I have a bunch of sketches pinned on one of my Pinterest boards, and I honestly love having so much inspiration in one place!
This is a sketch I have pinned from http://janaeubanksketch.blogspot.com/

Here is my page.
My Grandpa always called K "furball" because she had so much hair, and he said her toes were long like a monkey's. I love this picture of him holding her when she is less than a week old :)

Opal #1 - Silly Faces

Here is the sketch for Opal #1 by my friend Van Nguyen. (She did a great job, don't you think?!)

And here is my page.
I really did use the sketch, but it looks totally different now!
