Sassy Lil Sketches Sendoff Sketch #7

Just in case you live in a bubble, Sassy Lil Sketches is closing down shop....wahhhhhh!!! I will miss em!! So I have some catching up to do with the Sassy Lil Send Off Sketches......And of course, I do things out of order, it's no wonder I never know whether I am comin or going!
I am on an 8 x 10 kick lately....I only have a handful of these sized layouts, and they are easier for me to store at the moment than the 12 x 12's, which is my first love. But it's fun to change things up sometimes :)
Grids rock! And I have been on a major scrap busting spree lately so this one was right up my alley. I grabbed my Basic Grey 6 x 6 Mellow pad, PERFECT for fall!!! And a couple of fall photos of the kids from last year. I feel lik I have a nice little groove goin on scrapping last years photos according to the season this See......I'm not REALLY behind!!! If I tell myself that enough I may even believe
This actually came together really fast. Grids are no brainers for me and I think I spent more time actually cutting and inking the squares than anything. I love how the background turned out, reminds me a quilt, and my quilts are already pulled out for this yeear because we have been having some really chilly nights!!
In addition to BG, I used Thickers and Bo Bunny alphabets, and dug thru some stuff and found these Sassafras Lass Paper Whimsie flowers that I think matches pretty well!! I used a fiskars Border punch to cut the scalloped bits and the leaf border at the very bottom...OMG, I have had them for YEARS! And when I say years I am talking about when Jacob (my 16 yr old Junior in HS) was a Webalo boy I had originally found that sticker on a sheet with lots of other fall themed ones at Dollar Tree and we used them for his webalo badge project to create a scrapbook. We had several photos of him on camping and hiking excursions and they were left over from that project. So what the heck!!! I tossed them on The photo is Jacob and Jesse last fall when they were SUPPOSED to be raking leaves and cleaning the yard.
I also want to share this sweet little tag I made for a couple of challenges. Remember yesterday when i showed my prize from Artful Delight? There were some AWESOME little embellies from Melissa Frances.....and her packaging is almost as sweet as the actually product. A lot like Prima! I really liked the shape of it so I used it for the base of my tag.....just covered it with MME's Winter Glitter paper pad and came up with this cuteness!!
We have a pretty overcast day here in Knoxville today (and not just cuz our Vols got whooped yesterday!!) So it's reall difficult to see all the glitter going on here. It's on EVERYTHING!!! The striped, the dots, the little snowman's scarf and even the snowflake, which is a dimensional sticker from K and Co. I can't look at it without smiling!! I could put it on a card or use it for someone's Christmas gift but I think this little cutie is staying here with me and will go either on my tree or a wreath! I'm greedy that way!!
I'm linking my lil snowcutie up here!
