Lasting Memories Challenge #56

Hey everyone!!

It's Sunday and you know what that means?!!! There's a new challenge at Lasting Memories! Time to get another layout done to add to your scrapbooks and feel like you're accomplishing something! That's why I just LOVE Lasting Memories Challenges because it's all about LAYOUTS! Nothing else, just layouts, so we are forced to get our scrap on and get those pics decorated and in the books!

So this challenge is a fun one! Use the sketch provided, twist it, turn it, make it work for you just as long as we can still see it somewhere in there! The only catch is it needs to be done in FALL COLORS. Need some inspiration? Go check out the rest of the fabulous Design Team and see what they've cooked up for ya'!

My layout is about good old pumpkin carving! JaKobe, his Dad and his Stepbrother Brandon and I were carving pumpkins. JaKobe just wanted to stir the pumpkin guts that were in the bowl and pretend he was cooking! He later tried to eat part of it and realized that wasn't the best decision he's ever made! We made a total of 5 pumpkins (3 boys, dad and mom). I think I might do another page to this LO to include the pic of all of the pumpkins....we'll see! Until then, here is this one using the provided sketch:

 Stick pins and charms by Denise at
Only $1!!

 The pumpkin is cut out from a paper that had pumpkins all over it.
I then used Crystal Effects from Stampin' Up to make him shine!
 The leaf tag is from another piece of paper filled with little pics and I cut it out.
 Title cut using my Cricut Expression with Sure Cuts A Lot2 software.
You know me and my hidden journaling!!
And ofcourse a video to show how I put it all together!

So....check out the Design Team's creations at Lasting Memories, get inspired and get your scrap on! I'm also going to enter this layout at the Creative Accents Challenge. They too have a great DT and wonderful challenges! This challenge you have to use ribbon, embellishments and patterned paper. I can't wait to see what you create using the sketch with your fall colors. You have until Saturday at 9pm est to get linked up. Thanks for checking out my layout!

This is so cool and I love your video!! How do you make it speed up? What a cool idea. That pumpkin is awesome!! Sounds like everyone had fun and I am sure JaKobe didn't think that was his best decision ever, BUT, I bet he had a blast! Looks like everyone did!

I use Windows Live Movie Maker and under the edit tab you can speed up the video, so I usually just put it on 8x!

Sarah said...
