Reece's first Halloween

Good Monday morning!!

It's a fresh week and it's back to school week for Hunter, so we have lots to do in the next day with orientation this evening and then a full day of Welcome to School activity tomorrow in preparation for the official First day of school on Wednesday. I think he might be as excited as I am to see school back in session LOL!!

Well since it's the beginning of a fresh week, that means that the Critter Sketch Challenge has a new challenge for us to play along with. Yeah!!!  No sketch this week but they do have a fun and challenging recipe for you. The challenge for this week is to create a man or boy card or scrapbook page.  Pretty Easy??? Oh wait there is a twist, Melanie wants to see you  use some glitter. Tricky, tricky!!!!! 

Since it is my off week on the design team, I still always want to play along  As you all know I love my challenges and this one stumped me at first, but then I remembered I was wanting to make all the grandson's a card for Halloween to send with their little treats. Since my  little one, Reece will be celebrating his first Halloween, I knew this image from Mo's Digital Pencil Too was perfect. Not too scary but just the right touch for an adorable Halloween card. I created this card for the challenge.

I used this week's  fabulous sketch from Friday Sketchers #115 for my layout, then found I still had some older SU Halloween design paper in my paper tray that would be perfect for a non-scary card, using PTI Orange Zest and Simply Chartreuse for my base and matting I began creating. Can you see I did get the twist in my card as I added my glitter, SU Dazzling Diamonds to the pumpkin and cross bones, plus a little here and there on the parrot.

I even finished the inside as this is something I don't always do right away. Adding a cute pre-school hand poem and some little embellishments from a Dress it Up pack.

One done, now five more to go but since these are for the older boys I can get a bit more Halloween-ish with them. LOL!!

I hope I inspired you to head on over to the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog and get inky as we would love to have you join us this week. Show us your man/boy creations with some glitter. Head on over now as the design team gals have some pretty awesome projects to share with you and would love to hear your comments.

Thanks for visiting, I so appreciate your time and support. All comments are so appreciated.
