The Full Story

Ok... the time has come to share with you the full images of all the fun stuff I have so far created for Keep'n the Memories. I received a yummy pack full of October Afternoon's Daydream patterned papers (Rain Boots, Garden Chair, Freshly Mown Lawn, and Patio Umbrella) and matching die-cut journalling cards, Bazzill, HS stickers and photo corners, Scenic Route Chipboard Shapes (Plain Flowers), and an assortment of buttons, ribbon, and chipboard. I am yet to use many of the smaller embellishments included in my pack, but I have gone to town using the papers and journalling cards!!! It has been a lot of fun!!!

So, first up is my sample for this month's Criteria Challenge;

The criteria are;
1. At least two different pps from at least two different manufacturers
2. Machine stitching
3. A shaped photo

Secondly, is my example for this month's Sketch challenge;

This layout was based on a sketch taken from Becky Fleck's PageMaps book. My newest friend at KTM, Nicole Aspinall, kindly re-did the sketch for me to use for the challenge. Here it is;

Thanks Nic!!!

Next up is my sample for this month's Card challenge;

This challenge is new to KTM. It came about as a result of a suggestion I made to KTM's Queen Bee, Toni Rugari, who had wanted to scrap the Monthly Themed Challenge formerly held on the forum. I am very excited to be the founder of this challenge! I am hoping that it will become a source of inspiration for all the cardies out there who are too often overlooked!!! Please check out the thread in the forum at KTM for more details.

Here are a couple more examples that also fit this challenge;

Lastly, I have also created a frame by altering a Kaiser Medium (wood) Canvas. I did this by creating a frame from chipboard, covering it with Bazzill, and then adhering it to the painted canvas with a sepia photo sandwiched in between. To embellish, I cut circles from the OA 'Rain Boots' pp using the 'George and Basic Shapes' Cricut cartridge, then cutting wedges from them to form flowers. To finish of I added a length of ribbon and some buttons. You saw a peek of this yesterday, but here it is in full;

Well, that is it for now, but keep checking back as I still have many more projects planned using my kit!!!
