I have my inchies and atcs done for November now and the theme is Fall for the Inchies and Pumpkins. I stamped a large image on shrink plastic and colored it in on the back with colored pencils and cut around the scarecrow and then shrunk and mounted onto the cardstock inch squares that i distresses the edges of. I'm really starting to like these little treasures. These were hard to photograph with the glare though so not very clear but they turned out pretty cute!

I altered a picture frame from the Dollar Store using grungeboard cut into strips and painted with Ranger daubers and then sanded and distressed with Tim's scratch tool. Glued them down with the ultimate Glue and let dry. Rubbed with distress ink (vintage photo) and used blending tool to work into the grungeboard then misted with the mini mister of water and wiped with a soft cloth in small sections until I liked the outcome. I cut some chipboard flourishes in my BigShot and ran them through the embossing folder for texture and painted and distressed them as well. Added a photo of my Grandson at the pumpkin patch and here it is. Voila!

Made up a couple of cards for my next class using the layered collage technique from Technique Junkies. Very easy to do with stunning results and I am usually collage-challenged but these came together really easily for me. Thought I would post them here to share along with a few inchies I made upo for October's swap in my inchie group. This month's theme is Eyes. I just started doing Inchies and they are quite a challenge for me but I am enjoying them!

Little Phillip finally got to come home yesterday! He is back up to his birth weight and nursing well. He is just a sweetie! Wally took a four generation shot of us last night so I am posting it here.
