My Oct Update/ digital scrapping

I feel like it's been forever since I've been on here. Hubby thinks I should just take the month off because of my two surgeries and just recuperate. I have to admit it was stupid to go to my crop, but I run it and felt like I was letting everyone down. Later I got a lot of support from the ladies and a lot of people stepped up to the plate to help me, even if I need help for November's crop. So I'm not feeling so overwhelmed!

Here is a digital scrapbook that I made for our vacation this year.  Much easier in the clean up, lol. 
Free scrapbooking design personalized with Smilebox
Smilebox is great.  You can share photos online like I just did or if you pay a monthly/yearly fee then you can print out the book pages or send it to a store for them to put the book together.  This is like digital scrapbooking for beginners!

Simple can be Better

I've been on a "simple is better" kick lately. So I thought this would be a great challenge. All you need to do is create a layout that is simple but packs a punch.
One Pattern Paper (you can matte photos)
One Embellishment
One Scrapbooking Technique

Here is my creation :)
 I used one piece of pp (from Target's $1 bin), I used one chipboard sticker and for the technique, I used my glitter glue to outline some of the flowers and such on the paper.

Checking in

I've been a little off the last couple of months due to health reasons. I've really been focusing on CSDivas and being on the design team. It is a ning. site, and you have to set up a profile page which takes all of two seconds. They are wonderful ladies, and I love the challenges, tips, quotes and inspiration that I find there. Our Fall Blog Hop was a great success, and I want to thank everyone who participated!  Here is a couple of project that I got done before my surgery Tuesday (one down, one to go on the 25th).  I made this cute favor cake for a baby shower.  It was a big hit.  You can find these cake/pie templets all over the internet.  I added some Prima flowers, bling, ribbon and Cuttlebug.
