Make-Up Monday--Oct. 31

Happy Halloween, everyone! Hope you are having a 'spook'tacular day. :cool:

Now on with our challenges from this past week.
On Tuesday, Jo started us off with 'Kid's Show Tunes' & challenged us to layer two on top of the other.

On Wednesday, Nic used the song 'Daddy's Hands' as her inspiration & asked us to use either a flag or fabric covered button on our layouts & to also use song lyrics as our journaling as she did on her fabulous layout.

Thursday, Karen shared a cool tutorial with us for a quick & easy accordian-fold flower. We were to use one or two or three on our layouts & also to see if we could find a song with 'flower(s)' in the title or lyrics.

On Friday, Tamara used John Denver's song 'Leaving on a Jet Plane' to inspire us. She challenged us to use at least 3 different patterned papers & we also must have an airplane somewhere on the layout....whether it's in the patterned paper, a charm, button, stamp, etc.

Sandy provided us with an awesome sketch on Saturday & also challenged us to use sheet music on our layout.

Finally, on Sunday, Bev was inspired by the Turtles song 'Happy Together'. she challenged us to use the 'Happy' colors of Green/white/ lt. blue/turquoise & also shared a wonderful sketch to inspire us.
Here are those 'Happy' colors:

and the fabulous sketch:

and finally, Bev's adorable layout:
