Challenge project and last chance to comment.....

Happy 11-11-11, Everyone!!

It kind of makes you feel like it is a lucky, or at least special, day :-) I am especially happy that is is on Veteran's Day!

Our new roof is on and looks sooo pretty and our pockets feel soooo much lighter -- tee hee:-)

I have been working on a layout for a challenge between visits from grand kids. I got it done this afternoon. It is a sketch challenge at Creative Cutter Room. It is open until November 16 and this is the awesome sketch to go by.

And even more fun is the "candy"! Chic and Scary Cricut Cartridge!

Here is my take on the layout:

All the papers I used were from My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter Pack, as well as some red and white cardstock. My paper piecings were a file from Scrapping Bug Designs using scrap paper for all of it! It feels good to have these pages done ahead of time for those upcoming Christmas pictures:-)

A couple other things -- I said I was winning a lot of candy lately and I got the rest of it in the mail this week. I want to give proper credit to the generous people I received it from:-)

First is Elsa at Just A Few Designs who sent a wonderful grab bag of very useful things!!

Thank you so much, Elsa!!

Next is Jean at Jean's Crafty Corner who sent 2 absolutely wonderful Cuttlebug embossing folders!
Just wonderful, Jean! Thank you!!

Finally, is Alyssa from My Thoughts Exactly stamps

How awesome is this set??!! Thank you so much, Alyssa!! Please go and show some love to every one of these fine ladies!!

Since I have been so lucky, I do have a small giveaway in the blog below. So, if you go and leave a comment there, I am going to pick a winner this weekend -- probably tomorrow night:-)

Kitty Hugs, Judy
