Keeping My Mind Busy
Since I had an unexpected couple of days off from work because of the approaching hurricane I decided to get some scrapping done. A few days ago I had taken the time to go through the October Challenge List for both GingerScraps and Scraps n’ Pieces and come up with ideas for how to complete several of the challenges. Yesterday I spent the day working through my list. What follows is the results of all that work.
