Scrap Slacker

I've been such a scrappy slacker.  At least it feels that way.  Work has been crazy busy.  I'm also relieved that Halloween is over.  I love the holiday but it's such a busy week with the kids.  Now Marin is feeling under the weather so she kept us up most of last night.  The DH took her to the Dr. today so hopefully she has a better night tonight.  Woe is me!  Enough whining already!!!  As far as crafting, I'm working on a Christmas gift of which I can't post any pictures and I'm also taking Marit's Mixed Emotions class.  Which I'm loving but I admit it's been a bit of a struggle.  I'm totally new to art journaling.  Below is my first project for the class and I'm about a week behind on on the second project.  I've been working on it but gel medium is not my friend.... yet!
Oh, no... why is Marin wiping yogurt off of the dog.  I'm going to ignore it or I may never get back to this blog post.  I absolutely had to get online to post my layout for this months challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous.  I'm really excited about this challenge, it's to use holiday paper for a non-holiday layout.  Here's my layout.
I used some fun Fancy Pants Halloween paper and a bunch of bat embellies.  Head on over to Scrapbookers Anonymous and check out what the design team created!!
