Autumn Wishes and a Layout!

Hello there, this week's Wee Memories Challenge is all about the sentiments.  I decided to make a simple CAS card for the challenge.  I used a bit of woodgrain paper along with a strip of the Basic Grey Oxford Paper...and yes, the misting mades it way out again this week!  Stamped the sentiment several times in brown and once in red to make it pop!

While I'm here, I thought I'd share a layout inspired by the challenge at Artful Delight!  Not the best photo, but I loved scrapping these pictures from last weekend.  Here's the journaling, "Whenever the Pittsburgh Mangans are in town, there is always a game to play.  This weekend it was tackle Monkey in the Middle with the dads: Pat/Mike, Ryan, Connor, Erin and Jonathon."  My niece Laura was behind the camera!  The little ones (Collin, Ally and Marcel) were busy riding bikes most of the weekends.  When I say "All Out" Monkey in the Middle, I mean it...full tackle...no place for soft hearts when we're playing! 

Happy Thursday! The weekend is fast approaching! 

PS If you have any tips for photographing scrapbook layouts I'd love to hear them!  I never feel like my layout photos are very good!

I didnt know Monkey in the Middle was a full contact sport! ;) YOur cards is all sorts of fab, Lynn. JUst the right amount of everything! (and you are rockin' the mist bottle, I must say!) The only way I can get a good photograph of my projects is to take them outside.

Yay! The ink misting is back! :)
Lovin' the autumnal CAS card - that woodgrain paper is perfect for it!
Ha! Monkey in the middle looks like a dangerous game to me! We play Piggy in the Middle but there's definitely no contact involved (unless you cheat *wink*)
Hugs,

LOL, 'Monkey in the middle' is a term I have never heard of before... like Maureen we play 'Piggy in the middle', but there is definitely no tackling in that :) Great projects Lynn.
