Scrapsketch Friday Challenge 10/16/09 & Just Buggin' Challenge #7

Here is this weeks sketch from Scrapsketch...

I loved the set up of the sketch as soon as I saw it. I was planning to pre-do this years Halloween page for my niece but didn't know what I was going to do...this worked perfect. My sister told me she was going to be Minnie Mouse this year but the costume was pink not red. I made two identical pages (one for me and one for my sister--aka Brooke's Mommy). The black boxes are on the page temporarily until we get the pictures. I will post a follow up with the photo's added after Halloween.

This is the first time I have used the Mickey and Friends cartridge for my Cricut. Wow--Minnie was difficult to do. Thank goodness for my Xyron X sticker maker. If you own a Cricut and don't have an X (like me until recently) you need to get one. Walmart carries them and their refills. Perfect for the little pieces!!!!! I used the Minnie Mouse signature from the same cartridge as Minnie and used the Mickey font for the rest of the letters. I utilized my Graphically Speaking cartridge to cut the half circle. I used the do not symbol (circle with the line drawn through it) to get two equal size circles...since I did two identical pages it worked perfectly.

I am also using this for Just Buggin' Challenge #7
Anything but a card -make any project you want, as long as it isn't a card!
As always, you have to use your Cricut to make your project as well.

**Update: 10/23/09 I was chosen as one of the top 3 from Just Buggin' for this layout. Which is a total shocker since I didn't even know they had looked at my layout. (only comment here is from Viv at PeachyKeen.)

SP Color Combo #19

Here is the challenge from a wonderful blog:

Use this color combo for your project -be it a card, scrapbook LO, 3D or altered item. You do NOT have to use Stampin' UP brand colors, but you do have to use colors close to these colors.

Entries are due on Monday, October 19th at Noon PST. Next Tuesday, I will showcase the winner and the SP Top Five.

Here is my card. I have some Stampin'Up markers, watercolor pencils and chalks that I purchased from someone who was moving and couldn't take all of their supplies with them. I actually had all of these colors in the markers. I don't have the exact color paper so I got as close as I could.

The stamp says 'there's no business like "snow business."'

Thanks for looking!
