Cheer! Lay-out!

 Most of you already know how much I dislike male sports!! Mostly because I have girls...they have cheered for the last few years so instead of torturing myself my making a male sport project, I decided to do a girl themed sport project! 

  I used Hello Kitty for the Hello Kitty Cheerleader, and the rest is stickers, and chipboard that I covered. I also cut some pieces from their Pom Poms and added it to the page.

Witch you were here!

I won this digital image a while back and noticed a challenge that was being sponsored by the designer, so I figured it would be the perfect time to give it a try!
I printed the image out on white card-stock, colored it with Crayola colored pencils and used an Exacto Knife to cut it out! ( I think I did it correct!) I added some sparkle to her outfit, and to the broom. I made the frame using the drippy goo punch, some craft string and buttons!

 Glitterbabe's Challenge: Frame it, must be glittery

See the designer JLJ Designs Here!

Fun and Spooky Halloween Lay-out

A Lay-Out... (GASP!!)  Here is the story behind it!

I made an 11" spider pumpkin decoration for my chickies, you can view it here. They said it was OK, but nothing to special about it (don't you just love the honesty) I did not want to just waste it so I converted it into a scrapbook page! (And now they think it is Fabulous!) I always make two page lay-outs so I made this one along with it:

The monsters are from Paper Doll Dress up, the Spider from DoodleCharms, the Pumpkin from Create A critter and some fun Halloween Bling!

 I had an extra candy cut from my Boo Projects, added some fun paper and that was all!
