Fun mail and layout challenge

So I've been slacking on posts recently. I blame World of Warcraft and the newest expansion for it, as well as me stressing to figure out what the heck we're going to do about our car insurance. (Ours is getting to be a pain and is too expensive, must find a new one. blah!)
Anyways, did a layout challenge (I might and might not be able to enter it, it depends on if I can get to the scrapbook store by Saturday-it is a little bit of a treak to get there.)
Below is the challenge result for what I did. Basically they give you a kit with stuff in it, and you provide the pictures and design it how you want. They included 1 main sheet, 2 half sheets of designer paper, a chipboard circle, a green tag, and a safety pin. All the rest of the stuff I provided from my own stash and designed it myself (with a slight bit of inspiration from a scrapbook page layout sketches book I got.) Here it is:

The full layout!


oh baby!

Ok, so my journaling leaves something to be desired. 
I have bad handwriting.

So I did the whole layout, then realized it wasn't Thanksgiving but Easter, 
so I got the button to work for it. :)

Also I got a fun package from my mom in Michigan. It is all fun stuff for expanding my stash of scrapbook/card stuff. I also got a free table (left in the hallway in the "free" area of our apartment complex) so now I have more table space to do my cropping and actually don't have to do it on the kitchen table or the floor. My cropping room is actually a room to do stuff! Yay!
Below is the fun stuff I got from my mom. Thanks mom!

You have a lot of great stuff on here! I loved the pumpkin treats, they were so cute! Anyway, I am a scrapper, too and I have a blog if you ever want to check it out. Sometimes I just ramble, but recently I posted a couple of pictures of a calendar that I created. Here is my blog address:
