icky sicky, layouts, and fall decor

I’ve been stuck at home for the past couple of days because I’ve been feeling icky. I had a fever earlier, and the headaches seem to come and go. I’m hoping that all of this will pass very soon.

Hilos totally with me on the feeling blue.

Hilo's totally with me on this.

Staying at home, however, definitely has some advantages. I was able to finish a couple of layouts.

Scrap Outside The Box has a new challenge. For this one, all you have to do is use a paperclip in one of your layouts. Pretty simple, right? Right! Get to it, and share it with us. The layout I made was fun to make because it really was an opportunity for me to “scrap outside the box”. I played around with some of my Glimmer Mist. ((Speaking of Glimmer Mist, just wanted to give a big CONGRATULATIONS to Jamie for making it on the Tattered Angels Design Team!))  This layout also was fitting to the current challenge over at ScrapFit. Here’s my take on the challenge:

This next layout was created with the July Green Tangerines Kit. I tried misting on this project. I kind of like the way it turned out. What do y’all think?

…and I even had the chance to finish up a layout using the latest sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays. I love how this one turned out. I also used the July Green Tangerines Kit on this one. Here’s my take on the sketch:

A couple of days ago, I dug up the fall arrangement I made last year for the media console. I’m loving the bright colors it adds to the room!

Don't you just love the fall colors?!

I love the pine cones and acorns in this arrangement!

I love the pine cones and acorns in this arrangement!

I still have to find more of the Halloween decorations cooped up in our storage, but I’ll do that when I’m feeling better. 🙂

I will definitely be back soon to update everyone on the latest news.

Happy Hump Day!

Hugs,

sarah.
