Pinterest Challenge #16

EDIT:  My prayers go out to all those affected by the Aurora shootings...I can't even imagine. 

I managed to hear yesterday that we broke a record for the most days over of 100 degrees or more. . .ever.  Duh.  I had a nice to-do list in my head, which I never managed to get to.  I hate that.  But I spent Saturday up in Greeley watching my daughter play in a volleyball tourney - after loosing eight consecutive games Thursday and Friday, they came roaring back in the playoffs to win four straight games to put them in the semi-finals.  After fighting hard though, they lost both sets by close margins.  Way to keep digging RV!  Congrats girls.  My daughter came home exhausted and fell asleep during the monthly outdoor-movie-night at my sisters - Airplane!

Sunday the hope was high to tackle the to-do's, but it wasn't meant to be.  I shuttled boys to a grandparents house to mow their lawn, then I shuttled a boy to soccer practice (really?  Sunday and 100 degrees?), then I was shuttled to Costco.  I came home to divide bulk groceries into smaller units and shuttled them to the freezer.  The shuttling continued when I took my daughter to church, and while she was there, I shuttle a present to my Mom, that I had forgotten the night before.

Today?  Sigh.  Yeah.  So, since it's not working for me, you need to go shuttle yourself away with scrappy-type papers and create a layout or card based on this Pin from the Home for the Holidays board.  I love the pumpkins.  The rub-ons.  The colors.  The polka dots.  The swirl ribbon.  The shimmer.  The touch of fall in the pics on the pumpkins - leaves, berries.  Even the way the pumpkins are aligned on the door could help with placement.

This week's prize is something from Scenic Route - I'll have a name later.  Layouts are due Sunday evening.  Remember - enter at least once to be eligible for the drawing.  The more you complete the better your chances.

Off to see what can be salvaged of my day.

Happy Monday.

Finally got some scrap time today to get started on the challenges for this week. I was inspired by the colors and them of the inspiration and these may be the first Halloween photos from 2011 that I've scrapped. YAY!
