ETA: Ok, here's my take. Sorry for the lateness but blogger was giving me problems this morning...it was taking forever to upload the picture. As you can see I did my faux stitching with a white gel pen around my card.
Now, on to last week's winner which is Linda. We had great participation last week and I want to thank you all for playing. Some amazing cards and beautiful LO's from Hazel and Irit. Once again, thank you all for playing. Remember you have until Sunday evening to post your creation for a chance to win a delicious yummy treat. Until then, Bessie

- 2 sheets of cardstock
- 1 set of handmade items (make your own blossoms, handcut a scroll, use someone else's handmade goodie, etc.)
- 1 length of ribbon
- 1 frame
Outside of title and journaling, that's it! Link up your layout by Saturday night to be eligible for your own Cookie Jar Treat. They're good, right ladies who have received one? Not a stitch of fat in them!
I'm off to do a multitude of mini things; load some inventory to the site, double-check some goodies, do a little inventory countinbg, fold some laundry, download some pictures, get potato soup in the slow cooker for dinner, maybe work on one of my two projects (this would be the best!), do some planning for Black Friday and a 25 Days of Christmas challenge for the blog -- lots of little things. I'm hoping you'll be enjoying your weekend, too.

Well, like every week, you have until Sunday evening to upload your creation in the group or link it in the comment section here for a chance to win a delicious cookie jar treat. Now on to last week's winner. Not before mentioning that I loved every entry and interpretation of these sketches. You ladies are so talented. Thank you so much for all the inspiration and for sharing your talent with us. Ok, so this past week's winner is Molly again. :-) You really rock that sketch girl...and I, like you loved the vintage feel to it.
Hope you have a great week,

- 1 sheet neutral colored cardstock (black, white, or kraft)
- 1 sheet patterned paper with bright colors
- 1 set of "stitches" either real or hand drawn, okay, or rub-ons
- 1 over sized element that isn't a photo
- 1 set of brads
Outside of the listed ingredients only journaling and a title is allowed on your layout. Link up your layout to this post by Saturday evening to be eligible for a Cookie Jar Treat.
Next, I didn't get my photo, or in my case photos, from the final challenge uploaded, but being the challenge-issuer I don't have to play by the rules :D
My daughter created these goofy little cake balls for her friends who came over to trick-or-treat with her. OMGoodness they were scrumptious! If you aren't familiar with Bakerella's website, I HIGHLY recommend it. Not only does she have great dessert recipes, but the eye candy on her site will make you drool. Add how easy it is to create these yummies and oh, the insanity!
- 10/30's 5 on Friday -- Linda R. (Holy moly, Linda this is your month. Have you bought a lottery ticket yet?
- 10/31's Photo Challenge -- Jen J. (I love photo challenges and being able to actually see pieces of your lives. All the goblins I saw were simply adorable!)
Finally -- all my ladies who love challenges, scrapbook challenges that is. Apron Strings is the sponsor at Scrapbook Challenges this month. Paula just recently moved her site to Ning.com from MySpace so I haven't had the chance to browse around, but she's got sketches and challenges galore! And it looks like it's a little easier to navigate on her site. Thanks Paula for the inspiration!
Okay, ladies, I think that's it. I have a jammed weekend coming up - 1 soccer game tonight (the beginning of indoor season), 3 soccer games Saturday, 2 birthday parties to attend (one for my daughter and one for my husband) AND it's my middle son's birthday! Then Sunday we have 2 make-up outdoor games which ends the season. HURRAY!!
I hope you all enjoy your weekend and manage to get in some scrapbooking. Even with my overstuffed schedule, I am happy to say I am crafting. I have worked on my little project the past couple of days and will continue. Watch for photos. It's been only a little snatch of time, literally about 20 minutes, while my son hoarks down his lunch; when he's done, so am I.
