Croptober at Apron Strings: Catch up Challenges Week of 10/21

Hey friends!

I decided to just make one post to catch up on the challenges over at the Apron Strings blog from week 10/21. I did two of the layouts and I was going to do the 3rd and I pooped out. I got sick (stomach flu - AGAIN) on Monday and then Tuesday, my son Wyatt started throwing up, and he had the same stomach flu. It was terrible. We laid around watching cartoons on Nick Jr. and cuddled most of the day. Spent hours in bed eating crackers and adhering to the BRAT diet. I hope to not repeat that ANY time soon. I lost precious packing time too! Although I must admit, I LOVED the cuddling and snuggling with my sick little guy (picture below). I had high hopes of using some super cute Fall Jillibean design paper for the challenge on the 25th. :( I hope this weeks challenges allow me to dive into that kit!!
So here are my two is the first one from Tuesday10/22. I pulled the polka dots as my inspiration and the brads, I used sparkly chipboard dots instead. And the label...

Here is my 2nd layout from Wednesday 10/23. I liked the repeating pattern of the pumpkins so I used repeating polka dots and repeating Spooky words. Cute retired Stampin Up paper that I have been hoarding ;) I even found a black cat on a cute little Beware die cut. Wyatt was sad because he just wanted milk and to go nigh-nigh. Auntie Caroline tried to hold him for a while. :(

Looking forward to more Croptober Challenges over at Apron Strings this coming week! One of my favorite scrapbooking blogs! :) I hope to do a couple more challenges before I pack up the last of my scrap booking supplies. Move is set for Friday, November 1st!

  1. Love your take on the inspiration! I'm so sorry you've been sick. Hopefully you recovered enough to make your big move, make the bed in the new place and crash until you're better.
