Authentique Layout

I finally finished my Halloween Layout using the Authentique Glowing line and Jacqui was kind enough to furnish the creepy photos.
The candelabra die is from Tim Holtz and there is so much texture on it that you would think it was real.
Just to clarify no children were harmed in the making of this layout.

We will be making this layout in October.
Check the calendar soon for dates and times on the Ketchup Layout class.

I had a little time today

so I managed to start one of the ideas I had.

I thought I would share a little sneak peak with you.

This is a layout using the Authentique Glowing line.

This Candelabra is from one of the new Tim Holtz Sizzix dies
and yes that is real wax on there!

I hope I can finish the layout tomorrow
and I will show you some more photos.
We will be doing this as a class in October

New from Authentique

I love the deep rich colors of this new Halloween line from Authentique.
I have quite a few projects I am going to make with this line.
Of course I have to finish my class samples for this month before I can play :(
But soon, real soon I am gonna make something cool with this :)

and now for something completely different

We have on our shelves Four Mystery Novels by Joanna Campbell Slan which feature Kiki Lowenstein, the heroine that works at a local scrapbook store.
These novels with titles such as Cut, Crop and Die; Paper, Scissors, Death are a great read.

The first novel in the series: Paper, Scissors, Death
We meet mousy housewife Kiki Lowenstein, a woman who thinks she's only ever been good at two things: scrapbooking and getting pregnant. Her comfortable world turns upside down when her husband is found dead. The autopsy blames George Lowenstein's demise on natural causes, but how can Kiki believe that after she learns her spouse "borrowed" $500,000 from his company? Forced to sell everything she owns, Kiki has to start over in life. She takes a job in a scrapbooking store and the wild ride begins!

These would make the perfect holiday gifts for your hard to buy for Scrapping or Stamping friends.

They are also a great source of ideas for Scrapbooking (the author is a scrapbooker herself)
