CCG#210 and a couple of layouts for LBD

Happy Friday everyone!

Today, I'd like to share several layouts/projects. 

Yesterday was this weeks reveal for Color Combos Galore.  I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the palette this week.  Colors right up my alley.  I love it so much, I might have to do another layout.  :)

This month’s theme is all about books and reading, we have a lot of fun images and challenges in store for you so let’s get started!! This week's Designer Challenge: Focus on Paper - Architectural, Woodgrain, Ledger or Geometric. Lots of possibilities! This challenge is designed for you to include any of these papers into your project. I hope you have fun with it this week!

Since Halloween is right around the corner {doing a mini Halloween dance}, I thought I'd create a project that I could display for Halloween.  I used one of the new 7 gypsies solo trays (which I won a few weeks ago- thank you 7gypsies) and the MME Halloween collection from last year.  (perfect match for palette this week)

The shadow box was white, so I painted it to match one of the colors from the palette.  I then used a Ranger Distress stain to antique it a bit.  I wanted a more vintage, worn look, so I covered the entire piece with Ranger Distress Crackle Paint.  (love, love, love this stuff).

I cut my paper to fit in each cubby, filled the cubbies with fun MME and Tim Holtz embellies.  In order to hang the shadow box, I screw 2 mini hangers on the top and wrapped ribbon thru the holes.  I also screwed a mini hanger on the bottom and hung another Halloween embellishment from the MME collection.

I had alot of fun creating this shadow box and can't wait to create some more.

Here's the finished project....

and here are lots of close-ups....

I would also like to share 2 more layouts/projects I created for The Little Black Dress kit club, with the September kit.

Titled 'Fly High'

The last share is a quick project I created using bits and pieces from the September kit, plus a canvas that I had laying around.

I hope you enjoyed my shares.  As always, your comments are appreciated.

I hope your weekend is SUPER FAB!!
