Color Me Scrappy - Challenge #13

It's the first of the month (and a wonderful month at that - I just adore October) which means it's time for another Color Me Scrappy challenge. This is the last month of our first term. A lot of our DT members are returning, but a few are saying good-bye, so be sure to give them all some love and come play along with us at Color Me Scrappy!

charred hues 
These are the lovely colors we  have to work with! Despite their lack orange and red - I can't help but get the fall vibe from them. I loved working with these colors! Shades of yellow and blue are my absolute favorite color combo.
...And this is the layout I created! The photo is a picture of the moon I took using my telescope. It's quite funny because I went a completely different route with this layout than I had originally planned. It was suppose to be a very minimal layout. That didn't last long! The yellow wood grain paper is from Jillibean Soup's "Chicken Dumpling" collection. The brown wood grain and starry papers are from Echo Park's "The Ground Outdoors" collection. The brown chevron paper is from Bella Blvd's "Baby Girl" collection. The dictionary paper is from My Little Shoebox's "Happy Go Lucky" collection. The Blue polka dot paper is from Pebbles' "Sunnyside" collection. The paper with the strip of stars is from Webster's Pages' "Yacht Club" collection.

The little circle of stars came from an idea I've seen on several layouts before. You simply use a pen and trace something circular several times to get this effect. Afterwards - just add a few bits and bobs to give it that little something extra. In this case I've added stars I cut out my from Silhouette Cameo. I love how it gives that atmospheric feeling! The wooden buttons are from American Crafts and the swirly paper clip is simply something I picked up at the grocery store. The little banner sticker underneath the top button is from Echo Park's Sweet Day collection. The flags down at the button were made using patter paper and tooth picks. I've really become quite obsessed with flags! Such a great 'extra touch' embellishment. The title is a mixture of Bella Blvd's High Five alpha stickers and Amy Tangerine Thickers.

The prize this month is another mystery bag! We had lots of excitement over the last mystery bag, so we thought we would put together another exciting bag of goodies. The deadline for Challenge #13 is
