Applecrest - Paper Issues

Join the Paper Issues team as we celebrate my favorite month, October, with a little challenge called Rocktober.  We are giving you prompts for the season, an reasons to document your fun family times.  

I played along using Pebbles Midnight Haunting. 
The collection is a little spooky and a little cute!

YAY - A Flair for Buttons

We love a good fair and the Topsfield one is pretty great. We have tried to go the last few years.  We love to eat the junk and ride the rides.  Roman is the most daring.  If I ride anything that spins, I am done for the day.  Maybe even a few days!  

So, today, I am on the A Flair for Buttons blog with a fun layout using the Maggie Holmes Carousel collection, a FREE Carousel Cut File from Paper Issues and 4 different sets of flair from A flair for Buttons to replicate the seats on the ride.  

I grabbed this collection from Paper Issues for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann.


Carve it Up - Paper Issues

Being October, Paper Issues thought it would be fun to do a Rocktober tribute over on their Facebook page (PIFF!)  I received a large Swag Bag-ish style pouch filled with goodies for a travel journal or a layout.  What ever you may want.  I decided to get some of my photos documented from last year.  

I did grab 2 larger 12x12 papers from Pebbles and Thickers to add to the kit.  

Here are the prompts if you want to play along.

Halloween - Fancy Pants

Fancy Pants has teamed up with Pagemaps for a little product, sketch swap.  I was lucky enough to get to play along.  
Below is the sketch that I was given to create off of.  Of course, I was completely inspired and couldn't help but use a cardboard french bull dog calendar that I had.  I covered him with stripped paper that matched the inmate theme.  Instead of 9 photos or papers, I used 4 larger photos.  

For the papers, I used the new Spellbound collection from Fancy Pants.  It is so adorable.
