HIMCR #120--Use a critter!

Seriously.  Blogger is driving me crazy.  Why does it keep deleting my posts?!  AHHH!!

Anyway, here is a redo of what was up until midnight last night, before it disappeared again.

It's challenge #120 at Hiding in My Craft Room!  This week you need to use a critter.  Your critter can be in a photo, an embellishment, on your accent paper, anything!  Here is a cute one of my oldest daughter.  She was so little!

HIMCR 120--color it!

Welcome to color it! Week.  I love coloring in color books.  I mean, no one but my kids see them.  But coloring on something someone can see is a whole different situation.  So, I decided to step out of my comfort zone to make this...

I used my Adirondack markers over the acrylic paint.  And look!  Freckled fawn is making an appearance again!

Hop on over to the main blog and enter your creation to win a set of copic markers!

Anna used to wear headbands.  That is, until she realized she could pull them off. But every once in awhile, I get a call from a friend to make one or someone has a baby and I make one.  This one is a custom made for a friend.  She will be giving it to her sister in law who is having a baby girl soon.

Today was a sub day.  Third graders.  Their teacher is a good friend of mine.  They were hilarious and overall a good class.  I had a good time.  I really do like subbing.  After taking time off to be with the kids, it really does make me feel like it's what I want to do.  After all, I didn't get my teaching degree and halfway through my masters to sit around and not use that knowledge.  If you are visiting from the hiding in my craft room blog, welcome!  Make sure to follow me and let me know so that I can follow you too!

HIMCR--Halloween Colors

Boo!  It's October.  Seriously?  How can it possibly be October?  I'm pretty sure I wasted the last few days of September with my ankle (read about that in my next post), but how can it be October?  This week is Halloween color week at Hiding in My Craft Room.  If you look back, you'll notice I don't do a lot with orange, so you'll only see a slight hint of orange in this layout.

This week you will be entering to win a fun halloween bundle.  So head on over to Hiding In My Craft Room and enter to win!
