BOO!

Happy Wednesday! Are you having a good week?  Well, it is raining here in NH, but very typical for a New England Fall, but the colors are gorgeous. I am hoping to find a few spare moments to capture a few pictures before the leaves change to much.

Guess what today is??? Inky Impressions Challenge day.  The challenge this week is Fall or Halloween colors.  Oh, my favorite.  I have so much Halloween paper, and yet I continue to buy it. Yikes.

For today's challenge, I used "Lili's secret" from Inky impressions, although she is not very "Halloweenish", I thought the saying and her expression worked here.  What do you think?  Think this works? I used my new pad of Erie Baci Grey paper, which I am loving.  I have become a complete Basic Grey junkie.  Seriously, I don't know why I buy anything else.  I always end up going back to the Basic Grey 6x6 pads.  I wish all companies made 6x6 designer paper.  oooh, I love it (the paper, that is).

While making this card, I decided it looked blah, so I decided to go with rub ons.  what do you think? Are they to much?  I got them at the Target $1.00 stop, and I can't resist anything for a buck.  Glad I used them though.  I have really been trying to use from my current stash, as it has gotten out of control.  My one thing that I have a problem with is DP. I have them seperated in seasons, for catagories, but as I buy new stuff, it gets more and more out of control, and now I have no idea what I bought.  How do you store your DP?  Any suggestions.

Well, that is it for me today. I am headed to class.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and Happy Creating!

love your card you did a great job. As for my dp it in a mess right now. I try to sort it by design. Like floral, strips, dots, and then just halloween and christmas are stored by holiday unless i think it could go in one of the other categories.

Hi Kristen :) Great job with the Halloween part of the challenge! I'm not big on halloween, but you can't go wrong with these stamps can we? I tried a halloween one today as well. Just goes to show ya, you can color them ANY ol' colors and if they don't look spectacular, that's GREAT---cause they're just dressed up for HALLOWEEN!!! :) LOL.
