Color Me Scrappy - Challenge #15

It's the beginning of the new term for Color Me Scrappy and I couldn't be more excited. Remember how I said that there were changes to come? Well they are here! The new challenges are more exciting than ever! Instead of having just a color combo challenge - we're throwing in some extra challenges every month. This month we have a Color/Sketch combo....

Lovely fall colors and a sketch that is close to my heart (because I created it, hehe!).

...And this is the layout I created using the colors and sketch. With the fall colors in use I decided to go ahead and scrapbook the Halloween pictures of Charlotte from last year. The circle in the sketch is the accordion flower on the layout. Otherwise - I stuck to the sketch pretty well with the use of layers, a centered title, and strips of journaling. The majority of papers used are from the Simple Stories' Harvest Lane collection. The one strip of paper down the side is from Pink Paislee's Prairie Hill collection. The title is made up of DIY Fabric Thickers and High Five alphas from Bella Blvd. The chipboard pumpkin is also from Bella Blvd.

A challenge just wouldn't be a challenge without a prize! If you play along with us this month - you could win a $20 gift certificate to Paper Issues!
Paper Issues is an amazing shop run by a lovely women named Cassie. All her products are made of perfection and she offers fast shipping. I shop with her often and love every minute of it! To have your name dropped in the prize hat you must complete two of the four challenges for the month of November. We'll drop your name in the hat twice for the first two and if you link up for challenges three and four we'll drop your name in two more times! So, if you play along for all four challenges in November, you'll get FOUR chances to win! You've got until November 14th at midnight EST to link your pages for this challenge. We can't wait to see what you come up with!
