Imaginisce's October Sketch

Hi there my favorite scrappers! Hope you are doing well this first day of October. I am spending the day with my very best friend Frances and we will be going to an all day crop tomorrow. Wooo hoooo!!! Good times. But before I leave, I wanted to share Imaginisce's October sketch (created by the fabulously talented Cindy Stevens) and my take on it.

I LOVE Dinosaurs

Um, I can't stop scrapping with Dino Roar. LOVE it! With two boys to scrap, there are endless possibilities for me and this line. This photo of my son sprawled atop the elephant statue at the Dallas Zoo has been waiting patiently to be scrapped. And now, thanks to Imaginisce, it had its turn. Phew . . .

Ok, I think I'm a tad addicted to my Cuttlebug embossing folders. I used THREE of them on this layout. The tiny mosaic texture, tiny bubbles, and floral screen. My cardstock circles and my leaves are a little more interesting because it.



You can see Cindy's layout at the Imaginisce blog HERE. You can also find links to all the other designers sketch layouts. LOTS of great inspiration. And, of course, prizes! Have a great weekend!
