I used the Sketches in Thyme #74 (4 picture) layout sketch challenge...I liked how it lined them all up on one side, and for ScrapFit blog challenge, they just are asking you make a layout using at least 4 pictures.  So this worked wonderfully for both. :)  Here is my layout and the sketch as well. :)

creeps II

I wanted to complete a "2" page layout of our CREEPY family shots, from October, I once again used the sketch l/o from Get SketchyFrosted Designs has a wonderful challenge going on, of "recycled/upcycled" somethings... :)  I recycled a few things on this page, so I thought I would enter it in their contest. :)  The tulle is from an old skirt of my daughters, and the big eyeball came off a Halloween project we did, as did the pom pom ribbon..hence it's curliness.. :)  Here is my L/O
