Maybe I can send an extra goody to a commenter from my blog who links up for November at in one of three challenges, then pop back here to let me know you played along. 

Too busy? 
Already have a lot of projects due by Saturday?

Fudge a bit, use the challenges as a way to kick start mojo and get two with one stone kinda thing. 

Looking forward to what everyone creates!

CCC #015: November 2013 Tags Challenge

CCC #015: November 2013 Tags Challenge  - Stripes
Have I told you how much I adore the Tag a Bag kit from Stampin' Up?
They make for quick and cute little tags. 
They are my "go to" when I need an inspiration for my CCC projects.
The stripes on the grey were perfect for today's tag!
Added some ruffle ribbon, and punches.
Perfect gift tag!
Now head on over to to participate in this month's challenges.

Post a link in comments if you have, I'd love to see!
Still more to show another time.
What's that last one?!
Why a vellum textured piece covered in glitter!

My family and the Sketchbook365 Nov. Sketch

I decided to start entering more challenges to keep me crafty. 

The first one up is my layout based on this one by Yana Smakula as the November Sketchbook 365 challenge.

The fall family photo shoot is still at the top of my photo stack, and I couldn't wait to do this pic of my hubby and kids.

CCC #013: November 2013 Challenge - Play with triangles

New month of challenges over at!

And let me tell ya, this month's challenge was a doozy for me!

Play with Triangles they said.

Very good.

I sketched up a full sheet of ideas and plans.
Then I sat down with my stamps and got to work.
I wanted a Remembrance Day theme.

My final piece, which I am really pleased with, want even on my sketch sheet.
Funny how that works.

"Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working" Pablo Picasso.

How true. 
Sometimes you just need to sit with your favourite supplies and play.
