Halloween Fun!

I know, Halloween is long gone, but I just have to share the layout I did for the So Sketchy Blog. I just had to do a layout of the picture of my husband carving the pumpkin with the saw. It had to be a funny layout. I don't usually do funny layouts, so it was a great change of pace. I don't always have to be serious and soul searching. I don't know why I don't think of doing fun layouts more often. They are fun! Imagine that??
Here is the sketch:
and here is what I came up with!
I decided to use Saw 5 as my theme- I just loved the catch phrase! I cut the edges of the layout jagged to give it more of a saw feeling. I had a blast thinking about the little touches in this very simple layout! My family just loves it. The spider web gives it the right effect! I used Making Memories and Theresa Collins papers, Cosmo Cricket and Making Memories alphas, and a Jenni Bowlin ticket.
The journaling states:
Proof there is too much testosterone in this house.


Some extremely sad news!

On a very sad note, a lovely and talented scrapbooking friend of mine passed away yesterday. I will miss her tremendously. Rosie made the most amazing cards and whenever I hear of Christine Adolph stamps, I will always think of Rosie! She was a fixture at my LSS and she will be missed tremendously!! Rosie, you made a lasting impression in many a heart here in the valley and we will miss your smile! Even though your talent was amazing, you still took classes and enjoyed what we had to offer! I should have been learning from you girl!! My heart goes out to her friends and family!! Keepsakes retreats will never be the same!! We will miss you!

May the peace that passes all understanding be yours today,
Kristii
