Trick or Treat

I've been spending a lot of time trying to get my scrapbook room organized and put everything in a place that makes sense. In doing that, I've become reacquainted with things I haven't used in a while or, even worse, forgot I had. I found this little Tilda holding a pumpkin and knew I wanted to color her. 
She's so cute and perfect for Halloween time. I colored her with copic markers to match the colors in my favorite My Mind's Eye paper. It's hard because the colors in the paper are so muted. I matted the image with a couple of rectangle nestabilities and then finished the card off with a Cutters Creek gardenia.

I guess it's time to put my Halloween images and paper up for another year. I've had a lot if fun playing with some old friends.

Think Pink.

October is breast cancer awareness month and you sure to see a lot of pink. We're honoring breast cancer with pink projects all month. I chose this cute image from La La Land Crafts that I've had forever and never inked up until now.
I colored Marci with my copic markers to match the colors in the Echo Park paper. The frame around the image is a nestabilitie and I sanded it to make the polka dots stand out more. I finished the card off with some silk flowers and a cutters creek gardenia. 

Remember to think pink this October and  protect yourself.

More Filofax Fun

I've really come to love this whole Filofax trend. So much so, that I bought another one. The Domino is great, don't get me wrong, but seeing all the cute pink ones around, I couldn't stand it. Here is my new Filofax Original in Flourescent pink (and it is bright brighter than it shows in this picture) 

I love how bright and cheerful it is.  This week I decorated with a dog theme.  I found some cute stickers at Hobby Lobby and went from there. The pink washi tape with the hearts is from Kim at Cutters Creek. She runs a monthly washi tape club and this was one of them I received. The darker pink tape is one of the Scotch washi tapes and I probably got it at Staples. The dog bookmarks I got at Barnes and Noble. 

I like the idea of having a weekly to do list in the middle of my weekly pages of stuff I need to get done sometime this week.  I made a few to correspond with my upcoming themes. Thus one I made with clip art in Power Point. I think it fits in great. 
Well, that's my Filofax fun for this week. Next week I start with Halloween.
