I mustache you a ?

Everyone know that 'staches are the big thing right now.  Quincie made it popular with her hand person (Mr. Meatloaf) that a mustache.  After she made him, you saw those 'staches everywhere. 

I did this layout for Lasting Memories ( to use stamps) and Another freaking scrappy challenge (sketch). 

RCS # 12 ~ Famous Pets

It is the layout's team week at Red Carpet Studio,  so this week challenge is inspired by famous pet movies.  I really have no clue what my favorite pet movie is but I do love some of those supporting roles the animals play.  Like in Christmas Vacation, where the squirrel is in the tree and Snot chases him around the house.

But as everyone knows that follow my blog, I have several famous (to me) pets in the house.  I decided to do a layout with Sebastian. 

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Stamp-n-Doodle! The winner will receive two digital stamps of their choice.

Along with the randomly chosen winner of this week's challenge, the layout design team will also be taking a look at ALL of the layouts and voting on their top three "spotlight"submissions.

Sketch with color

Here is a brand new blog, Sketch with color.  I've just finished the second challenge with is the sketch with a Halloween theme to it.  I still had the pictures of the no so haunted hayride that we went on.  I really enjoyed doing this layout since I love Halloween so very much.

Hello Kitty

This is for this week's sketch at Let's Get Sketchy

I found this really cool Hello Kitty paper and embellishments at Micheal's the other day.  I had to get it since everyone loves Hello Kitty.  It goes perfect with my kitty except Sebastian is a boy.  But I don't think he really cares as long as he gets his treats.

Sketch~N~Scrap DT Call

I just applied for Sketch~N~Scrap Design Team.  I really do love sketch challenges and I miss it not being on Twisted Sketches anymore.  So cross your fingers.

Here is the sketch that I had to use.

Here is a few random pictures of the goofy cat.  I joke around that I am going to change his name to "What The Hell, Cat"  Because he always runs around high on catnip.  He like to try to trip us too.

Let's Get Sketchy Hop

Let's Get Sketchy is having their first Fall Blog Hop.  There are many ways to win.  One is to use the color palette for a project.

I remember that many years ago I bought the Friendly Forest Collections form Michaels.  That was perfect.  I used one of the goofy pictures of the cat for the layout.  He is sitting on my scrapbooking chair.  He sits there more than me.

Time for a walk

Here my crazy daughter decided to take the cat for a walk.  They did not go very far, Sebastian just wanted to go back into the house.

This is for the sketch challenge at Paper Secrets

DT- Lift Off

I'm sad that I am no long the guest DT at Lasting Memories.  I had a blast with my crazy layouts.  You girls have to tell me when it is time for a DT call. 

Here is Quincie and her baby.  She love Sebastian so very much.  He loves her right back.  I can't believe we had him for almost 2 1/2 months already.

I had lifted Toni's layout.  I hope you love it, Toni!!!!

Out of it

I think Sebastian is so adorable when he sleeps.  So sweet and innocent.  He is really a good cat, he loves to be petted all day long.

This layout is for Sketches With A Twist, the twist is to use stamping.  I stamped small flowers on the top and put pearls in the center.

For Scrap Our Stash I had to use pieces of torn paper.

RCS #10 - Clean and Simple

Our challenge this week at Red Carpet Studio is a layout challenge - create a CAS-style layout. CAS stands for Clean and Simple, meaning not a lot of details, embellishments, etc.

It was hard for me to do a CAS layout, I need enough embellishment to cover most of the page.

Quincie's goofy cat like to lean up again the walls and door.  He really looks like an idiot, but we still love him.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is The Paper Parade! They will be providing the winner with a $25 gift certificate.

Monster Mash

I work with the sketch over at Stuck On Us Sketches.  Here is what this week's sketch looks like.

So, I stayed with the Halloween theme when I did my layout.  This is from the haunted hayride we went on.  It really was not scary at all except for the disco dancing clowns.
