This 2-page LO uses SPCC combo #35 - be sure to check it out and see what you can come up with. You could win one of Sami's generous give-aways! For this combo, I used 4 pics that my daughter gave me of her precious son Coltin. My son-in-law took these pictures last fall. I love Coltin's look of freedom in the great outdoors. I used SU CS and Citrus Sarapapers. The title was stamped and cut with Sizzix.

This week is my off-week for the SPCC DT, but I just LOVE the color combo, so I wanted to do a layout. I hope that you'll check out Sami's blog and see all of the fabulous work that the talented DT members came up with for this combo of Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, and Soft Suede. See what you can come up with, and you might win a wonderful prize. I also included some brads to give more texture and accent, so I'm including an entry to Practical Scrappers challenge as well.

For this LO, I dug out some old photos of my big sis Barb, my twin sis Mary Ann, and me. Mary Ann and I were about 2 in this picture (dated 1957, so it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how old we are).

Details on this LO: CS is SU Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry DSP, and the blue is printed from a digi paper pack from LetteringDelights.com, which is also where I got the title and the frame. The ribbon is SU Soft Suede that I got through Sami's ribbon share. The swirls are stamped with VersaMark using stamps from TAC and Autumn Leaves (I love to use swirls and they went so well with the paper). The journaling was done with Prismacolor markers and the brads are from my stash.

SPCC #33 - My Little Pumpkin

Sorry for the lousy photography when trying to take a pic of the LO. I got my daughter's hand-me-up camera when she got a new one, and I'm just not used to it yet. I know, she should be the one to get the used one, and me the new one! But she left a week ago for ITALY for a semester abroad, so I wanted her to have a good camera so I can live vicariously through her photos. She is studying Landscape Architecture and is now at the Santa Chiara Study Center in Castiglion Fiorentino (in Tuscany, no less). Her blog is It-Alli-A (her name is Alli - cute, huh?).

This LO is using Sami's SPCC Color Combo #33. Can you tell that she's feeling overwhelmed by the cold, dreary winter? What a way to put a little zip in a LO! This LO features my darling granddaughter Adelyn. The pics were taken this past fall when she was about 4 months old. These colors don't scream "pumpkins", but the colors did match what she was wearing (sort of), so I went with that. The CS is all SU, the flowers are punched, the mat borders are punched with SU's eyelet border punch, and I added some tulle that I got on sale at JoAnn's (a roll goes a long way, and it adds some fun texture).

Why don't you see what you can come up with for this wild color combo. It might just brighten your day, and you could win a wonderful prize from Sami's extensive stash!
