VLV October challenge

Here's my card for the VLVOCT01 challenge. It was a sketch challenge with a shabby chic twist. Not too good at shabby chic, collage or distress style here, but I gave it a go. I love this K and Co. patterned paper and thought it looked a bit shabby chic already, so I went with it! Thanks for looking!

Really weird, by blog title and header photo are missing right now. Don't know what happened. I think I'll just leave it alone for now and see if it comes back, maybe it is something with Blogger?! I'm not too computer savvy, so not really sure what to do. If it doesn't come back, my dad will be her Thursday night for a visit, so I'll see if he can help. He's very good at this stuff!

T minus one week and counting down. Not sure if that is how the phrase goes, but anyway, one week to go. Starting to stress out a little here. I couldn't really sleep last night, was up at around 5:30 making chocolate chip pancakes for the kids, they were thrilled! Off to get some things done while the Finn-man naps. Thanks for stopping by today!
