Personal Scrapper Croptoberfest - October 4 - 9

Yup,  I am still keeping up with this crop with Personal is some of the layouts I made.

October 4:  3's, 3's & more 3's  - Create a layout with items in 3's: 3 photos, 3 patterned papers, 3 brads, etc. 
Lukas wants to do everything his Oupa when Oupa is hitting balls, so is Lukas.  Here Oupa is showing him how to hold the club.  I used Making Memories Just Chillin papers and alpha.

5 October - Choose an October pagemap to scrap
This is the sketch I chose.
I scrapped a double page layout with photos taken at Knysna Elephant Sanctuary in April this year.  This was one of the things I enjoyed most.  It is amazing to interact with these huge animals.  I used the Little Yellow Bicycle Autumn bliss line of printed paper.

October 6:  Make a double page layout using at least 5 photos.
I used an Allison Davis sketch to scrap these photos taken at my sister, Herlien's wedding in December last year.  The paper and embellishments are all from the Basic Grey Cappella line.

7 October:  Make your own embellishments.
This layout is designed by Vicki Boutin for Basic Grey.  Here Lukas and Leane is up in the high as they can go.  All papers used are from the Basic Grey Pyrus line.

8 October: Use this Nutty Caramel Apple pie recipe:

Nutty Caramel Apple Pie al a mode 
* Use "SWEET" in the title or journaling 
* Use the colors red, yellow, green..for the 
apples (Use 1, 2, or all three) 
* Use white/off white for the ice cream 
* Use brown for the caramel sauce and nuts

The colours that was required is all in this layout, but the only sweet things are Lukas and the birdie.  This is another layout designed by Vicki Boutin and all the paper and embellishments used are from the Basic Grey Curio line.  Photo was taken at Birds of Eden last month.

October 9:  Love
This layout with photos of Herlien and Mark's wedding in December was perfect for this challenge.  All the paper and embellishments used are from the Basic Grey Cappella line.
