This week's CCC from Studio L3 is called Extreme Masking. It was a really fun technique and I intend to try it many more times. In honor of my grandma's 90th birthday coming up in November I decided to make a special birthday card for her with the technique. She absolutely loves fall colors and I thought the combination of Wild Honey, Barn Red, Peeled Paint and Pine Needles was perfect with the Club Scrap Arts & Crafts mask. The quote "Let us dance in the sun with flowers in our hair" from the Nature's Retreat kit seemed appropriate as well. Hope you all have a wonderful and safe Halloween!

Once again, I'm cutting it close. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to Studio L3 and check out the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge. You'll need the book (you need it anyway, hehehe). This is such a fun and quick technique. I really should do it more often. And I used my 3 new distress inks too. Barn Door, Victorian Velvet and Wild Honey. The brown matte is from Club Scrap's Bridges kit and the print bg is from K&Company.

I We had a great time visiting Will and Brianna in Tucson a couple of weeks ago. Will had an SCA event that he was fighting in and this was our first chance to get to see him in action. It was FABULOUS!! I, of course, had to do some scrapping afterward. I still have a few more pages to do, but here's what I've got so far. I used alot of Ornamental and Concrete Jungle kit items from Club Scrap for these.

I'm back in the swing of things. Just could not get my act together last week. I needed a vacation from getting back from vacation............huh? I decided to make a pair of earrings for the Fragment Charms CCC over at Studio L3 this week. Very simple, but I am very happy with them. They are a surprise for someone........and that's all I'm saying.

The new Club Scrap kit came out last week. It's called Scholarship and has beautiful watercolor backgrounds and lovely school themed sketches. It just called to my heritage photos. The first 2 are of my grandfather and his older sister and their cousins in about 1917. The lower one is one of my mom's class pictures, I think 1952.
Have a great week, everyone!
