A busy week coming up...

Well we are just getting back from our vacation in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, TN.  The mountains are absolutely beautiful!!  The drive up to Clingmans Dome was the most beautiful drive I have ever been on in my life!  But to be honest, the commercialism of the cities and the traffic made me not want to go back.  It took out 1 hour and 45 minutes to go 14 miles to our cabin!!!!  And trying to get into Gatlinburg on Saturday was just crazy….it took us an hour to get back to the cabin which was only 9 miles away.  But we had a great time with family, loved our cabin, and the colors were just phenomenal.  Yes, there will be pages….

So I have got a lot of catching up to do this week!  Let me start be sharing some things I have done the past few weeks that I haven’t shared yet.

First is this page that I did for my weekly challenge at Memorable Seasons.  Challenges this month focus on cards, but we still do out layout challenges, too, so I decided to use a card sketch as inspiration for a layout.  Here is the sketch! 

On my page, I used the sketch just on a small area in the top left corner.  Then I layered some square and rectangles of the same colors on the main area of the page.

When we got the bouncy seat out for the new baby, Charlotte took it right over!  She would climb in, grab something to read, and turn on the vibrate button!  J

I kept this page pretty simple (no sewing or misting!).  We are going to do this page in my class at Scrappn’ Savvy on the 24th!
Next is this double pager that I did as my Weekly Layout for Scrappn’ Savvy.  The design is based off of a sketch at Page Maps.

I used the We R fall line (forgot the name).  This is definetly one of my favorite fall lines this year!  I can’t wait to do some more pages with it! 

I fussy cut some of the shapes from the patterned papers like the leaves, trees, flowers and owls and pop dotted them on top of the same shape on the squares of paper.

Finally, here is a Halloween page that I did that I submitted for a pub, but it didn’t get picked up.  HOWEVER, another one I submitted IS IN THE OCTOBER issues of Scrapbook Trends this month!  Look for “My Baby Bumblebee” and you will see Charlotte in her bee costume from last year!

So on this page, I used a Basic Grey laser cut paper on top of black cardstock, and then some Pink Paislee Queen Bee papers, too.  A few embellies from the Girls’ Papeier are in there here and there, too.

I will have a post everyday this week for some sort of DT reveal and a few special collaborations!!  Can't wait to share!

Go in an off season Audrey - it's much less congested. The spring is beautiful there with all the blooms and red bud trees. Pigeon Forge had a wonderful Scrapbook Outlet store that I would head back to again

I thoroughly enjoy all of your layout pages and learning about new techniques you have incorporated onto your pages.
Thank you for sharing.

Cute pages, Audrey. Must ask: for "best seat in the house", what background paper did you use? We are a houseful of math and science geeks, so I think we need some of that grid action....
