Challenge # 358
Anything Goes

This weeks image is from Little Blue Button. One of my other hobbies is photography. I still have a lot to learn on the subject, but I love to find the beauty in the things other not might see. My husband always seems to ask me "What are you taking a picture of" - "Or why are you taking a picture of that". So when I seen this adorable image - I kind of thought of myself for a moment!

Hope you like it!

Happy October crafty friends!!!
 
Can you believe it's fall & October already? Wow....I can't.
 
It's time for another
 
This weeks challenge is:
 
Challenge # 349
Anything Goes
 
This weeks image is a pre-colored one from Sparkle n Sprinkle!
Halloween is my most favorite holiday! And I got to make a wonderful Halloween card this week! And I LOVE the pre-colored image so that I can whip up a quick card like this one!
 
I kept it real simple, and merged a couple of the images together. Then added a sentiment to make it all one bigger image. Hard to see, but 'dressed' it up a little w/the Wink of Stella and some gems for some sparkle :)
 
Hope you like it!!
