Pumpkins and Christmas pages....what a combination. I'm either too early for one or too late for the other!

It might be cold and frosty but at last the sun is shining. "YAY "So today Rebel and I ventured outside to take some proper photos of my projects. Although I do apologise for the long shadows on them!!

I have added some numbers to my DDA pages, using a variety of fonts and chipboards, and have put the stickled felt tree on the front for now. There is no point putting the ribbon on the rings as I don't know how bulky the book will be when it's finished.

My finished page for the Crafting in Style November sketch challenge is of Ben in his Halloween Costume. I have also used Liz Webers sketch to host this months sketch challenge on The Paperparadise Forum although I can't see any players yet.......

The photos were taken a couple of weeks after halloween, but hey that's artistic liscensing for you and bad English weather prevented me on the 31st!!

I can't deny I struggled with this multi-pic layout but at least it's done. Melissa Frances papers and some punching, painting and distressing. .

Basic Grey letters painted and glazed. The tiny felt circles are from a car boot sale. I think they were for doll making?
These photos were taken in the early morning sun in the woods near my in-laws house and sad but true I did plan them in advance. Why else would I take a halloween costume in my suitcase in November!!
I flicked the larger flower with distress inks as it was a bit bland. I must get some Coffee coloured glimmer mist ASAP
Is this not the most gorgeous blog candy giveaway? Even more inspiring when you see the types of beautiful creations that saltescrap makes with them. Click HERE for your chance to enter. I know I for one would love to win that lot!

Enjoy the sun while it lasts because tomorrow the kids and I have to wrap up warm for a trip to a theme park to see Santa and the forecast is for frost all day!! .....brrrr.....Just like last year when we went!!

The pumpkin patch is stunning girl, Ben of course looks darling and he steals the show I am afraid.
