Creative Scrappers, Get Picky, and Bird is the Word!!!

Hi everyone, I know I haven't been too active here lately but I was in a kind of scrappy rut.  I made a layout that I didn't really like, ripped it all apart and did it over, still don't like it... sigh... and now it's set aside.  I think I've figured out what's not working for me so I'll attempt that one again later...much later  But this left me in a bit of a rut, but as I was able to create 3 different layouts this weekend I think I'm back on track.  This first layout is based on sketch #177 from Creative Scrappers.  Most of what's on here is from my September Pixie Dust Paperie kit.  The burlap, frame, owl rub-ons and paper are all from the kit.  I misted the brown base with some green.  Added some paint and stitching to the burlap. The black bling arrow is something I've had in my stash for awhile and the orange bling on the photo I adhered with my i-rock, the remaining embellies are all Making Memories.

This next layout is based on sketch #13 at Get Picky.  The pictures are of Gavin playing with my R2-D2.  Yes, mine. I have blogged about having a bit of a Star Wars obsession  haven't I?  Well anyway, the patterned paper is Creative Imaginations, with exception to the green which is actually Bo Bunny.  Added some mist and I kept this one pretty simple, but I really like how it turned out!

And lastly this layout is based on the sketch from Bird is the Word as is the challenge to use the word "Together".  The paper is an older MME Christmas line.  I'm a holiday paper collector and rarely use it, so I'm thrilled that this has finally been broken into.  And I know what you're thinking, did she use an extremely corny title in order to use the word together and meet the challenge criteria?  Heck yeah I did!!!
The snowman on here are actually some big brads that I've had in my stash for a very, VERY long time.  And of course the letters are American Crafts Thickers.

Now to go see if I met the deadline on any of these challenges, yikes, cross your fingers!!!  Thanks for looking!
