This is my latest layout for Sketches in Thyme. In my true seasonal scrapbook form, I decided to go Halloween for my October 20th reveal. I'm a pushover for Halloween paper, especially anything Doodlebug. I liked how this sketch allowed for different types of patterned paper to be used. For me, this was PERFECT since I have accumulated quite a bit of Doodlebug Halloween paper over the years. I decided to feature pictures of my daughters, what feels like many moons ago, getting ready for Trick or Treat. I blinked and one became a high schooler and the other became entrenched in "tweenhood." Overall, I was pleased at how this sketch layout came together, Although these pictures sure did tug at my heartstrings....I sure do miss my little witch and Corpse Bride...

This is my latest creation for Let's Scrap based on the sketch below. The month of September has been a blur. This layout is half the reason why; volleyball! My older daughter has played volleyball for five years. She absolutely loves the sport. Last year was her first year on the school team. This year, she has been a starter for her Freshman team since the beginning of the season. She has transformed from a timid back line hitter to an all around utility player with one heck of a serve. Not to mention, her team is absolutely fabulous! Each girl seems to know subconsciously what the other girls are going to do therefore they play beautifully together. It has been a joy watching them grow this season. So when I saw the stars on this layout, I thought of my daughter's volleyball team and decided they would be a perfect subject matter for this layout since they have all had a stellar season. In addition, I used Teresa Collins' "Urban Market" collection not only because many of the papers are my daughter's school colors, but the circle glitter paper reminded me of volleyballs.
