Good Morning October, yes I know it is already the 2nd, but yesterday was a busy day going to Church, shopping and visiting Hubby's Parents, so I thought I would just post today!

My first sketch for STUCK?! October 1st sketch has gone up on the blog and I must say the sketch was a fabulous one to start my Stuck?! adventure. As always there are wonderful sponsors for these challenges.

My layout.. Smile Its Christmas..
You can check out all the design team inspiration and link up over at the STUCK?! BLOG HERE!!! 
And the challenge for KRAFT+ is another fabulous one and it is..
To use Kraft base and clear elements.. something see through... You can check out the inspiration from the designers and link up your entry over on the KRAFT+ blog!!

And my layout.. As soon as I saw this challenge I remembered I had some backing from some Prima flowers that I had kept thinking that maybe one day I will use them... so they were perfect for this challenge.. I had one with words and one with doileys, so I used both of them, fussy cutting out the doileys... and some closer views first..

 I have used some Lemoncraft papers which I have fussy cut out some of the flowers.

You can see the fussy cut doileys I have used as well as the words. The chipboard is pretty old embossed in pink and the other white die cuts are from dies.
I hope you have found these challenges get you inspired in your creating this month..  And yes I am just shaking my head at how we got to be in October already... I just hope we all have some creative time for ourselves in the busyness of each day!

Thanks for coming by and thanks so much for the lovely comments you leave me too..
Have a great day!
