I have some things to show you...

This layout was made just with the goodies in the main kit. These BoBunny papers were rich and exotic and I water distressed the edges,then highlighted the wrinkles in Rub n' Buff. I made the flowers out of the black tulle ribbon and ZVA pearls that came with the kit. I will post a tutorial on the flowers later this month. I fussy cut the dragonflies and using the cracked glass tutorial by October GDT member Patti Hamil, created their funky wings. I painted the chipboard with black crackle paint and after inking the edges of the brown ribbon with the kit's Ingrid Bolme ink in Teak Wall, I wove it around the page and highlighted it with more ZVA pearls.

This is my second layout, using the inspired sketch by  DT member Amarilys:


This one is my fave! I used the main kit, the flower and embellishment add-ons and some mixed media from my stash. The frame is a $1 Michael's cheapie that I distressed and attached the Prima doors/shutters to. Aren't the Prima leaves and vintage keys just perfect for this palette?

The Design Team is partnering with Sketchabilities for their upcoming October 30 Sketch Challenge! so be sure to stop back to the Scrap That! blog next week to see the rest of the Design Team's inspiring work with this gorgeous November Kit and the reveal of the Sketchabilities new sketch!!I have another creation to be revealed October 30th-using the same kit with a completely different color's a sneak:
