Croptoberfest Part 4

At Personal Scrapper, we had until November 6 to complete and upload the LOAD challenges. I finished my final two layouts and uploaded them today. Here are the remaining layouts I haven't yet shared.

October 22 challenge: Use something 6 months old or older and some of your oldest photos
I used Basic Grey Offbeat papers that I've had for quite a while, Doodlebug paper frills, and an OLD Li'l Davis 2005 dated clip and K&Co gold Navy embellishments. These photos were the oldest set in Kevin's "to scrap" photo boxes - from June 2005.
October 23 challenge: color combo challenge
This challenge really had me stumped until I noticed someone else using papers I had. That was my jumping off point. The only color missing was the yellow and I pulled that in with the ER pass. In just over a month, I was in the ER with Kevin for his concussion, a sister who was in a head-on collision (she's ok!), and a sister who had emergency surgery to remove her appendix! I'm tired of the hospital!
October 24 challenge: Use Halloween colors on a non-Halloween LO
These skulls were perfect for scrapping Kevin's concussion for his album. October 25 challenge: any 2-pager
We had options for this challenge, but I took the 2-pager route. I enjoyed using my October add-on from PS using the Fancy Pants Halloween line. Kevin pretty much carved his whole pumpkin by himself this year.
October 26 challenge: scraplift anything
This started out as a scraplift of a LO in the October Scrapbooks, Etc. magazine. I took a 2-page LO, made it a single page, and rotated it.
October 27 challenge: use stamps
This was a challenge because I rarely ever use stamps. Here I used them as a border along the bottom of this page. October 28 challenge: scrap something on your "to do list"
I had these photos pulled and thrown in my "kit" bag to use with these products. Plus, this marks one of my Design Team projects off my list for Scrappin' {Sports} Stuff.
October 29 challenge: use cardboard on your layout
I used a piece of cardboard, covered it in paint and stamped it ON my layout. This page documents the brands that Blake both requested and received for his 11th birthday last month. October 30 challenge: use a collage
I used Shutterfly Studio to make this 8x10 collage of Blake stealing bases during all-star season. Again, I used products from Scrappin' {Sports} Stuff. I love how this one turned out!October 31 challenge: use "sweet" in your title
I scrapped Kevin's crazy hair. One night after showering, he made "Elvis hair" and went to bed with it wet. The next morning, he woke up with wild hair. I love the colors of this page. I also have one more layout that didn't fit into a challenge. I used the October PS add-0n. This page is for my personal album and it shows the pumpkins that Tom and I carved this year. I loved my mini "double" pumpkin. That little thing was hard to clean out though!

Now that Croptoberfest is over, I hope to concentrate on my Scrappin' {Sports} Stuff commitments over the weekend. Stayed tuned for those projects!

Great job finishing all of the challenges, Amy! You never disappoint!

I really like the sports LO's. They look awesome! And I love the little bit of crepe paper on the Head Trauma LO.

Fun stuff to look at. Thanks for sharing!
