Hello and welcome to our final October Saturday. We hope you have had a fun month with us. Our month started out with a bang as we were honored to have some magnificent guests. Thank you, again, to Jennie, Connie, Aliza, Cris, Amy, Whitney, Janice, and Christine for sharing their talent with us!
Deb then provided us a marvelous week on stamping, filled with techniques, instruction, and inspiration. Next, we got in a Halloween mood as the whole team chipped in with festive home decor, crafts, layouts, and more. As the big night draws near, remember to read up on the photo tips! Teka closed out our last full week, giving us myriad reasons to pin even more eye candy on Pinterest.
Looking back at our Saturday workshops, Amy gave us three challenges and helped us see the difference little changes can make in our journaling. (Doesn't she make it look easy?) Next, Lisa offered up some useful suggestions on using stock photos and creating our own stock photo libraries. Lastly, Marnie put together a sketch from Erin's layout, a color palette from Jennifer's, and brought to focus the rainbow trend from this month's gallery.
Once again, a month of terrific scrapbooking It really has been an incredible, information-packed, inspiration-filled month.
Before we welcome November, as with each month's end, today we are taking one last walk back through our gallery. Shall we take one last look at Pinterest Made Me!?

Usually our printables coincide with our theme, but this month, we thought a Halloween version might be more fun!
Little embellies, project life cards, a title, something to frame, and sweet little flags. Everything you need to put together some terrific pages. All available for you to download here.
And this time, we made a British version, too! Complete with kilos and (the proper spelling of) favourite! It is available here.
Thank you for stopping!
