4 Pages to share for Crop Addict....

Before I share the Crop Addict kit, here are a few snapshots of my little bumble bee!  I made the costume myself.  I didn't use a pattern, I just "winged" it!  (Get it?)   Charlotte liked her costume, but she didn't like the act of actually putting it was a bit tight over the head.  but once it was on, she totally worked it!

It is coming up on Nov. 1 so very quickly!   That means lots of kit club reveals for me this week!!

I'll start with the very fun Crop Addict November kit.  I also got the add on kit for this month, too, and it is used on most of my page.

I just love these little pink sneaks....they are so cute.  They aren't the sturdiest, but they are great for just playin around outside a bit.

I used a new rubber stamp (new to me anyways) that I got at Archivers that looks like scribbles.  I stamped in a few places and misted my cardstock with some black chalkboard mist.

I used a navy blue mist on the chipboard swirls and some rub ons around the photo. 

I just love these canvas text print flowers!!  I cut one in half and put it on the top corner.  There is also a tiny alpha stamp set which is so cute!  I incorporated it into my journaling.

I have had these photos of Charlotte eating blueberries in my "to scrap" pile since March.  When I saw the colors on this polka dot paper, it just seemed to match perfect!  I used sketch #32 from Sketchabilities for this page.  

I added some white paint behind where my title was going and I even painted it on with my fingers! 

I used a quote from some of the patterned paper over my photo and then I journaled around the outside edge of the page about Charlotte's little "pincher" fingers.  :)  Of course that was months ago, already...I can't believe how much she has changed.

OK, so there were some papers in this kit that were very busy, but had some nice fall colors.  So my trick when using busy papers is to cut them into small squares and make a grid!  Some of the squares I stamped on to add a backround, and others I painted with a thin line of yellow-ish paint.

These little journaling stickers in the kit are super cute, and instead of writing something for journaling, I just filled in all the little stickers!  OK, now for something weird: A few posts ago I did a page for the Crate Paper blog challenge to use a sketch that they had.  I SWEAR that I did this page before that sketch was posted.  Isn't that crazy?  If you saw the sketch, you know what I mean!

OK, last but not least, this is another photo I have had around for a while that I have been wanting to scrap.  Keith and I at my friend Amy's wedding 2 years ago. (Keith has lost 45 pounds since this photo!  WTG honey!)

I wanted to keep the design simple on the page because I was using the cut-out trees, which were a bit busy in patterns, but I just LOVE them!   I love the little bit of pink in these Bella Blvd. papers.

OK, so that is it for Crop Addict for this month!   I have been SOOOO busy lately!  I have a HUGE Christmas class coming up at my LSS that I am teaching on Friday, so I am trying to finish getting that together.  But, the good news is that were are going away for a few days this week to western TX to see and area that is supposed to have nice fall foliage....we will see! 

Stay tuned for my Scrapbook Circle reveal on Monday or Tuesday.....
