Squirrely for Fall....


Welcome to another challenge at High Hopes.It looks like you quite enjoyed our last challenge.They were all phenomenal.There's some very creative people out there. I hope you'll like this challenge...
Our hostess Niki has us playing with some colors...
Let's see your creations using those great fall colors.Here's what I came up with.

Bookmarks keeps the spot....

It's that time...Countdown to school ! ! Well maybe for me.LOL.My girls go back to school in two weeks.I know when it comes time,I know I'll miss them.But they are getting very antsy to get back.I'm lucky,my girls love school.
So it's perfect for our challenge at Scrap-Creations to be
For my project I decided to make bookmarks .My kids all love to read.Always have.My middle daughter is a little more obsessed with reading.I say this because she can read multiple books at a time and read rather fast.
In school last year,they have an Accelerated Readers program.You are required to read and do a report on 7 books by the end of the school year.Well she did that..actually she did 52 !  ! She received an award for it.Not only did she surpass  her grade but ALL grades in the High School.She even received a GC for the local bookstore.Thank goodnesss, cause I can hardly keep up with buying her books.LOL.

Anyhoo here are some close ups......This image here you will find over at Graphicat Designs.

This image is from Dustin Pike.

 "Use Your Stash".
How hard is that...I KNOW you have something you haven't used in a long time or even seen ink yet.LOL.

I added some Prima flowers that I've had foreeeever.

Today at Scrap-Creations we're playing B I N G O
For those who are not familiar with this...simply you pick a line on this Bingo card(see below)
 and use those items on your project.
For my card I went with GLITTER,FLOWERS & RIBBON.
Actually I could even go Flowers,Die cuts(ticket) and Digi Image.LOL.Apparently I was going for a full card.Haahaa.
So I finally got to play with Glubers from Cosmo Cricket.What's this you ask??Well I think of it as a GIANT glue dot.I took my ribbon and just kept going in a circle creating my flower.Love this!!
You could do so many things with it.I also gave the ribbon a shot from my heat gun to give it that crinkly look.
So onto the rest of my card,the image is from Paper this cutie.Sooo much fun to color.Honestly I could not get a very good pic,it is much brighter in real life.
Close up-If you click to make bigger you'll see all the glitter everywhere.It's on the edges of my layers,the balls,the flowers,the ribbon.....oh I went glitter crazy!

I'm also entering this card into the following:
Birthday Sundaes Challenge-Birthday card with
