Croptoberfest 2009 Part 2

I have continued to play along with the Croptoberfest challenges at Personal Scrapper. Go me!

October 6 challenge:
We were challenged to scrap someone we admire and use a word to describe them in our title. I admire Tom and the boys. I love how much fun they have. The word I used for them was "crazy" as in "I give thanks for U 3 crazy boys". I used the new October Personal Scrapper kit for this layouts.
October 7 challenge:
Today was my day to give out a challenge and I gave a "Lucky" challenge to use the word in your title and/or scrap about something that is lucky to you. I scrapped Kevin's 7th birthday adn the #7 pancakes I made for him.
October 8 challenge:
This challenge was a cool one that used a bingo board with different supplies/techniques in each square. We were supposed to take a row and use those items/techniques on our page. Overachiever me used four different rows going two different directions. I used ribbon, 2 patterned papers, distressed edge, vintage feel, bling, journal spot, 2 colors cardstock, inked edges, handwriting, 3 brads, journaling around the edge and chipboard.
October 9 challenge:
The challenge to scrap a name (where it came from...what it means, etc.) was a hard one at first. Then one afternoon, I realized I'd called Kevin "Pumpkin Butt." I knew I had photos from a recent outing to the pumpkin patch en route, so I was anxious to receive them. These photos of Kevin holding up a mini "double pumpkin" that actually looked like a butt were perfect to tell this story. I've called Kevin "Pumpkin" for a while. somhow it evolved into Pumpkin Butt and it stuck!October 10 challenge:
For the scraplift challenge, I decided to lift a layout by fellow PS member Erika Hayes. I used the October PS kit. Like my play on words..."School Days"...get it...they are fish! If that isn't a knee-slapper, I don't know what is. :)
October 11 challenge:
I was rather stumped on the "Thanksgiving or cooking something special" challenge. By then I was down to scraps with my October PS kit and there was a "give thanks" diecut. I decided to make a Thanksgiving card. (You don't have to may layouts for the challenge.) I finished the card and made six others to finish off the scraps of my kit. It is gone!
October 12 challenge:
This challenge was a fun one. You were supposed to make your own frame. I was using a PageMaps sketch (Oct. '09) that actually called for a frame on a photo. I simply handcut a frame out of chipboard, inked it and sprayed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist. I'm really happy with how this page turned out!

I just need to finish a couple more challenges to get caught up. ;)

Lovely work Amy, looks like you are keeping up with all the challenges! That School Days gave me a much needed chuckle today! Thanks for the smile!

Look at you go! Great job on keeping up with the challenges.

I LOVE your card set. It has inspired me to use up my scraps with that paper line.
