Two New Layouts

My son has been sick, so I've been off work. That left some time for scrapping.

This one is a layout of our kitty, Mindy. I did this for an impromptu challenge at Ch{all}enge Masters (use fall colors but should not be about fall) and used sketch 42 at 52 Sketches 52 Weeks.


The next one is from a trip to Holiday World. This covered a few challenges: color challenge 3 at From Here 2 Scrapternity; time challenge at Scrapping Out Loud; and the challenge at Use Your Stash (use stripes, scallops, and hand journaling).

Here's my interpretation of the sketch. I used Romans 12:12 on the flowers.
