Welcome to another Sunday challenge for The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. I can actually say that this week didn't go to fast as usual. My daughter is done with soccer and she decided not to be in the All State Choir. Although, next week are basketball tryouts. She hasn't played basketball for school but loves playing at home and in gym. She decided to tryout with two of her friends. She said she doesn't know if she will make it. I told her she wouldn't know if she doesn't try. She is so sweet because she is worried that she is spending to much of our money to do the things she wants to. I told her money wasn't an issue. If you want to do something go do it. This is better then hooking up with the wrong crowd. I just find it funny that I had two boys that never played sports in school but my daughter has always been in something. By the way, she scored two goals and 3 assists in this seasons soccer and an award for positive attitude. This was by far her best season. Next year will be the true test when she starts high school and the coaches and games are a lot different. I have already prepared her.
Now lets get to this Halloween challenge. This is my second favorite holiday if that is what you call it. I like the cute side of it. Not all the freaky stuff that scare kids. Whoopsie Daisy has cute images for Halloween. I love the one that they allowed me to work with. It is from a sheet of four Halloween Girls. I picked one with the girl holding her pail for the candy. She is adorable. Whoopsie Daisy has done it again with their images. Let me tell you what you will win this week from Whoopsie Daisy.

Now let me show you the card that I called Trick or Treat

I found some cute Halloween paper at Archiver's. This is a great scrapbooking store but an hour and a half away from where I live. I can honestly say it was worth the trip. I hope you have one near you. Great Store

At the end again. Hope you join us in our challenge this week. There is so much Halloween stuff out there that it would be easy to make a card. Good Luck to all of you that enter and I will see you next week. Have a fun and safe week!!

Welcome to a very cold day in Ohio!! This is our very first cold Sunday of the year. The first taste of fall. I even had to turn my furnace on for the first time this year. I did have a very interesting week though. My son woke up on Tuesday morning with real bad pains in his side of his stomach. So I take him to the ER and they immediately put him into a room which never happens when you go to our ER. The doctor come right in and says they think it's appendix but there is also a bad stomach flu going around or he may have some infection. They did blood work first and in about fifteen minutes they came back with his results and a surgeon. He had to have his appendix taken out. They said they would get him in in about two to three hours. Next thing I know they came in and took him straight to the operating room. They did a laparoscopic surgery and he was out of the operating room in about an hour. He went to recovery and then to another recovery room where we could finally see him. We left at six in the morning and was home by two in the afternoon. Talk about quick. I had to stay with him for 24 hours and I thought my 21 year old son turn 10. He still hurts today and they put him off work until November 1st since he is in construction and they want to make sure he healed before he goes back. I was really shocked that I finished my project this week. Two late nights helped me finish.
Fall. What a great them to have at this time of year. Melonheadz Illustrations is our sponsor this week for our Fall challenge. We were lucky and was given a set to work with this week. The set is called Fall and there are 11 images that came with this set. We were suppose to use as many images from this set as possible. I ended up using five of the images to make a Scrapbooking Layout this week. We are able to choose from a card or any other project. As I already said, I made a layout for this project. I used pictures of my grandson also on this layout. The pictures were to cute not to use. Before I show you the layout, let me tell you what Melonheadz Illustrations is giving to the winner this week.

Here is the layout that I called "Happy Fall" with my cute little grandson Hayden.
I hope you like it. See how the pictures fit right in. Last year the neighbors raked all their leaves in a pile on the road and my grandson just had to go over and see the  pile. He got there and just jumped in. It was so cute. Oh, I made the hay bails that the pumpkins are sitting on. Took a little bit of time but was well worth it. Here are the products that I used to make this.
Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- DCWV & Colorbok

Well, I hope you enjoyed the post this week. I enjoyed making it. Melonheadz Illustrations made a great set for us to use. So, make your projects and get them to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog so you have a chance to win this great prize. See you next week and have a wonderful week!!!

Hello Everyone!! Welcome to another Sunday Challenge. We all know that this week went fast. My daughter had the whole week off for our county fair. Our area has a lot of farmland so their are a lot of kids in our FFA. So, since so many will be missing school they just give the students the whole week off. Although I can say she was hardly home. On top of her soccer she spent so many days with her friends at the fair, mall and even a Halloween Party. I think she spent at least almost a whole day home this week. She was feeling bad that she wasn't here but I told her that this is the life of a teenage girl. I just forgot what it was like to be that young and running around the whole time. Now I know why my parents always said I was never home. I'm still adjusting. Being home alone has been fun and tough at the same time. I miss my little girl who always wanted to be with me.
Now to the real reason we are all here. The Sunday Challenge which the theme is "Square Cards Only." Our sponsor this week is Paper Pretties. Just by their name you should know they have great images. My image that I used this week is called Butterfly and Blossoms. When I seen the blossoms I knew that I wanted to work with this image. I wanted to make it a little bright and with many colors. I also loved the butterfly just sitting on top of the blossoms. Well let's see what Paper Pretties is giving to the winner this week.
6 Digital Stamps
The Winner's Choice
The Paper Pretties Store
Now I would like to show you the card that I made with this image. I named my card Blossoms
I tried to brighten the card up with the program that I usually use. I wanted the vibrant colors to come out off the page. I have so many colors of flowers but when I get to a card that I would love to use them I never can find the colors. So, I did use what I had but would like to have had a couple of big white flowers to add. Here is the items that I did use to make this
Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- DCWV
Flowers & Rhinestones -- My Boxes of Extras
Colored Pencils
Colored Markers
I know that I didn't use a lot to make it but I think it turned out pretty. This is the end to my post this week. Just remember to go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to enter your square cards this week. Have a Wonderful Week!!

Unbelievable!! It is Sunday already. This week went by like a blink of an eye. I have even been home alone a lot this week and it still went fast. I even had this weekend to my self because everyone had things they wanted to do. My daughter is learning to spend nights and days away from home. My husband is helping my dad tear the outside of his house and putting up new board, some kind of weathering stuff, all the shingles and the siding. They work on it on weekends so it has been taking along time. I grew up in this house where is was stucco on the outside so I have a piece of it in a jar just for memories. My other son is off as usual. He's 21 and is never home except to eat, take a shower and eat. I guess my life isn't as exciting as everyone else's. I did have fun Saturday. I watched horror movies all day. No one else likes them so I had a whole day to watch. There's a lot since Halloween is coming up. Enough with my little bio and get to this week's challenge.
Use a Digi. This is a  great challenge to enter. You can use and digital image that you like and make your project and add it to our challenge. Our special sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish. She has her great images and is always adding something new in the shop. She has so many categories for you to choose from. I used the digi called A Bell For Christmas. Since we could use any image I thought I would use this one to add to this years Christmas cards that I'm making. I changed the images name around a little bit and called my card Ring That Christmas Bell. Before I get to off subject, let me tell you what Robyn is giving away to the winner of this week's challenge.

Now let me show you the card I made. I love the way that is shines. Let me show you what I'm talking about.
