Crafting fun!

Although I have been at work all week I have had time for some crafting in the evenings.  I mostly spent the time making these three bookmarks for a swap which is going on at the CM&PC forum.  They all use distress inks, Lavinia, Crafty Individuals, Purple Onion and inkadinkado stamps.  As they are bookmarks they need to be nice and flat so they have minimal embellishments. The pink one is being entered for the crazy4challenges 'photo inspiration' challenge, and as book marks are quite like tags I thought I would ask if these could be entered for the Pixie dust 'tag' challenge.
I also made a scrapbook layout following this weeks Sketchy Thursdays sketch.  I used my normal clean and simple style with cream coloured card stippled with distress ink using a paintbrush and then stamped over with leaves in autumn colours. I then only added a few autumnal papers and the matching alphabet stickers from Crate paper.  This layout really does show my style and so I am entering it for this weeks Lasting Memories challenge as well as for the 'cutie patootie' challenge from Paperplay (well I think Alex is cute!).  The journalling was inspired by the song title from this weeks Scrap it with a song 'All the right moves' as the journalling reads 'Alex loved sunny autumn afternoons in the park, especially when he realised that he could turn his scooter into a leaf bulldozer. It took some practice to get the move just right, but the squeals of laughter when he got it were wonderful to hear'. That is all from me for now.  Have a great weekend everyone.
Love,
Caro
