Lisa, I commented on the Gorgeous LO's on the blog; I seldom go to the blog but should really do that more often.
From what I have seen thus far of the Oct kit, I am drooling! Since my scrappin' enthusiasm seems to be in overdrive these past few days I am going to get at the sketch pronto.

Love a good challenge! We shall see if I can get my mojo back after being away for a couple of weeks. I commented on the blog which is always good for inspiration.....love Niru & Lisa's examples and Shannon, love how you used that background paper; I was stumped on that one......great use of feathers and My Man, Simon.

Looking forward to your creations soon!! Thanks for your comments and YES that little Simon guy is darling. My 4 yr old granddaughter was giving him a little kiss -- she wants him all for herself!!

Great inspiration!
Shannon, I love your take on the sketch! I was kind of "eh" about those acetate triangles (I think I am not a triangle person) but I adore how you used them here, and I will have to play with them like that!

Thanks kindly friend!! I hear you about the triangles; I am so determined to use all the bits that come with these gorgeous kits so my approach now is to find the right colors from the embellies for my overall LO and throw them up in the air and see where they land and how they look. I do a bit of rearranging but for the most part it seems to work. Crazy, I know!!! ;)

Beautiful Terry!! I love the leaves and color palette and how all of it together looks so warm and autumny (is that a word?)

Shannon, you put my thoughts to paper. I was thinking the exact things about Terry's layout! Makes me wish for fall even more! Love it, Terry!

Shannon & Deb....you took the words right out of my mouth. Love the fall color palette and also how you can scrap so many photos without them being overwhelming. Nice two page spread!
