Sampler Sketch Challenge

Hi all!  How's life treating you this week???  Hopefully wonderful.  I have a 4 day weekend so I'm not complaining!  It's cold and dreary here, but perfect weather to craft and cook.  My animals hate the cooler temps...the chickens act like it's zero out! 

I've got 2 layouts to share with you tonite from The Sampler's October Kit - Mrs. Weasley.  First up is The Sampler's Sketch Challenge for the month:


What's up for grabs???  You could win a complete kit from The Sampler.  Check out The Sampler's Blog for more information.  Here's my take:


This is a LO of me and my cousin Jacob at the Kentucky Horse Park.  Such a beautiful place, especially for horse fans.  I'm loving these Thickers from AC and check out the little painted chipboard leaves, darling! 

Up next is a LO I made for Punky Scraps - Collage Challenge:


A quick recap of Summer 2011 on the farm.  As you can see my Silkie chickens were a new addition, plus 2 new ducks.  I also have a shot of one of the twin deer that is living in our pasture.  See my feathers?  I thought they were cute to add to the page, because they are my feather hair extensions that I had for 3 days this Summer and they fell out.  Hubby said he didn't know he'd married a chicken, so I thought it only fitting to add to the farm page. 

All of my goodies can be found in The Sampler Kit for October - Mrs. Weasley.  We would love to have you play along with this month's sketch challenge and good luck!
