It took me longer than I thought it would but it's done. I had such a hard time with those papers and didn't really feel like my mojo kicked in until I was almost done. I didn't like the Queen & Co. stuff, which I thought was too bright for this paper collection. I also realized while working with these papers that 1) I don't like shiny cardstock, and 2) I especially don't like white shiny cardstock. Here are 2 of my faves - I turned in 2 layouts, 3 cards, 2 gift bags and one gift tag.
Submitted a couple of cards with bows to the Cards Blog- not sure I got it done though, we'll see.
Another Ella sketch challenge is up - going to give that a whirl but I need to find a good group of photos to work with. This one is a 2 page spread.
I have a small cookie job to work on - some Thanksgiving turkeys for a friend. Have never made a turkey cookie so this will be a challenge. Also want to work on some holiday samples and maybe start a cookie blog. Typepad has a new (and free) Micro Blog. It just might fit the bill.
