It's The Last Day of September...

Hey there Crop Suey fans - it's Michelle here again! It's the last day of September and you know what that means... The big reveal is coming soon for the October kits! YEAY!!! SERIOUSLY - you guys are gonna LOVE what's in store!

I don't want to get ahead of myself tho, cuz I am still having a blast with the September kit and I have a couple of new layouts to share with you!

The first one is for this week's song over at the Scrapping the Music Challenge blog. The song is "Celebration" by Kool and The Gang, and I made my layout with pics from my sister-in-law Stef's college graduation party:
It was such a festive occasion and the Over the Rainbow kit was a perfect match for this layout. Everything I used was from the kit except the green cardstock and the black alphas that spell "Stef." If you've never checked out Scrapping The Music, come on over and play along with us, it's a lot of fun!

The next layout was for the current challenge over at Scrapmojo. Crop Suey is sponsoring the challenge this week with one of Bree's kits! I have never done the Scrapmojo challenge, but it was really unique and a lot of fun - now that I've tried it, I'm sure I will do it again! The challenge was to take inspiration from Cirque de Soleil, and I chose to use their "Love" show as my inspiration. You can see the home page for the show here, and here's the layout I did:
The pic is of my hubby Michael and me when we were first getting together, a little over two years ago now. He really brought sunshine into my life! Again, everything is from the kit, except for the plain colored cardstock and the black Thickers that say "it's alright." I hand-drew and cut out the words "Here Comes The Sun" from the patterned paper that comes with the kit, and then colored them with oil crayons to give the sun-ray effect. I LOVE oil crayons! Always have, ever since I was a kid. Some things you just never outgrow! The current Scrapmojo challenge ends today, so get over there quick if you want to enter and have a chance to win Bree's kit!

Well, that's it for today folks! I'll be chatting at ya again next Tuesday! Til then take care and happy scrapping!
