For my project I used patterned paper from My Favorite things and doodlebug.  The stamp is Crazy Birds from Tim Holtz which I have had for a while and not used and figured this would be the perfect project.  I stamped the bird with My Favorite things Hybrid ink in black.  I used distress ink pads and water to color the bird and the paint splatters.  The greeting is from Jaded Blossom stamps.

Connie Can Crop Pumpkin Spice challenge

I am here today to share my pumpkin spice challenge project.  I decided to scrapbook some old pictures.  These are about 10 years old.  Anyway his little outfit seemed like good fall colors so away I went.





I hope that creating these pages helps me get motivated to scrap more older photos.  Older pictures bring back so many memories and remind me of how fast time goes by.  



I used Paper from DCWV the lodge stack and Indian summer.  I also used cardstock from CTMH.  I cut the pumpkins freehand.  I used cricut cartridge Art Philosophy for the title and greenery.

Let's head on it to the classroom and see these amazing back to school projects!

My kids started 5th & 6th grade this year and I can hardly  believe it.  It seems like not to long ago they were just starting preschool and kindergarten.  Anyway this year I was a bit more excited than them to start school.  They were excited but didn't want it to show it especially in a first day of school picture.

  Our niece is graduating high school this year so I had to make a card for her.  We will be traveling to see the graduation and my kids will miss the last couple days of their school year.  It will be worth it.  Hope you enjoy my project.  I used some chipboard numbers and covered them in platinum embossing powder.  I also used some cranberry CTMH cardstock, black cardstock and white cardstock.  I found a scrap of paper with tiny writing on it and used baker's twine to tie it up.  The Congrats stamp is a CTMH stamp also.
