October Hip 2 B Square Layouts

What a fun kit.  I know I keep saying that, but it was fun.  I got 4 single page layouts and two double page layouts done with this kit and I have a couple more that I am trying to get done.

Kimberly does a wonderful job of putting these together.


Cameron wanted to go as Woody, so I picked out Sami to be Jessie.  It will probably be the last time I get them to match their costumes.  For a two year old, Sami is quite particular about what she wears.


In this layout, I made some of those spiral paper flowers that are so popular right now.  My fellow designer Eva Montes did a tutorial on them recently. (Click Here).  Part of our designers challenge this month was to take one of the tutorials from our designers and use them.  It took me a couple of tries to get them to look like a flower.  I sprayed them with a spritz of water to help manipulate the paper better.  I must say that they don't look to bad for a first timer.



Sami was just a couple of months old for her first visit to the Pumpkin patch.  I set her on the pumpkins but the sun was so bright she wouldn't open her eyes.  It is still such a cute picture.  I stiched a LOT on this page and used Glossy Accents to make the dots pop. 



This layout was based on our challenge sketch by Melanie Jarocki.  I pretty much followed the sketch verbatim.  I did use my sewing machine to sew the journaling lines.  Which I must say is pretty clever of me. 

Here is Melanie's sketch if you want to try it.  For some reason, the outside lines are not showing up.
