October Afternoon Play Time & Some Challenges!

Hi there!

I'm sharing some creations that I made with some challenges in mind today :)

First off all, Creative Scrappers posted the following sketch:

And October Afternoon posted a challenge to use your letter alpha stickers ... so I created the following layout with their Rocket Age collection.

The layout shows a picture of my side of the room and my roommate's side of the room in our University residence (10+ yrs ago) ... I used alphas to document this and create a longer more interesting title.

The city skyline is from a die that I bought recently and really enjoyed using!  I like "switching up" the font styles in my titles to create an interesting story ... and I like how this title turned out.

I definitely had a more cluttered side to the room than my roommate! LOL.

Next I'm sharing a card that I created for the Frosted Designs sketch challenge.  I am also entering this in the Paper Playtime challenge to create a birthday card with a sentiment on the card.

This is the sketch ...

And this is my card!  I used my scraps from the layout above and created my sentiment using Jillibean alphas and October Afternoon collection stickers.

And I created this card for fun :)

Thanks for checking me out today!
