TN Time With Lisa & Lori - October Challenge

Hello, hello! Happy Monday to you! I hope that your week is off to a good start!

It is time for the October edition of TN Time With Lisa & Lori. We're a little bit late this time around - but better late than never! Here is how it works - this is a just-for-fun monthly challenge that starts on the 10th of each month and ends on the 9th of the following month at midnight CST. If you complete my random challenge for the month - link your TN, bullet journal, or planner spread below. If you complete just Lisa's sketch challenge, link up over on her blog - My Creative Endeavors. If you combine both challenges - be sure to link up on both Lisa's blog and here on my blog.

Here is my challenge for October:

This month I am challenging you to use orange on your layout and a label or tab.

Here is the sketch that Lisa has created for us:

And this is what I came up with:

I pulled out my 2018 Favorite Photos of  Ada TN to work in this month. I have so many traveler's notebooks that are "in progress" and I would really like to get a few of them finished up by the end of the year. This particular one would not take me long at all to finish up if I would just work on it!

Anyway, the photo is of Ada on Halloween of 2018. She had on this cute little outfit when Abby dropped her off that morning and I had to get a couple of pictures of her in it. I took a cue from the phrase on her shirt and used that for my title and went with ghosts for my embellishments.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

I used one ghost sticker and then several ghosts that I die cut for my embellishments. To help the ghosts stand out from the white background I inked all of the edges with black soot distress ink. I also stamped some stars in black and in orange and die cut them out to sprinkle around my layout. I punched out several tiny black and orange stars to finish it all off with. 

I love these little ghost die-cuts! They just make me smile every time that I cut them out! 

Here is the right side of the spread:

I used a couple of papers from Echo Park's Halloween Magic collection. That ghost paper is so cute and I can't wait to use more of it. 

Be sure to stop by Lisa's blog to see her beautiful layout for this challenge. I hope you have some time to play along with us. I would love to see what you create!

Even though this is a just-for-fun challenge we do have a few rules:

1. Create a TRAVELER'S NOTEBOOK, PLANNER, OR BULLET JOURNAL spread based on the CHALLENGE THEME and/or our sketch. 
2. Create a new, not previously posted project.
3. You are welcome to combine with other challenges.
4. If you have a blog please include the challenge graphic & a link to our challenge in your post.
5. You can link to social media if you don't have a blog. If you show your project on Instagram, please make sure to use #TNtimewithLisaandLori 
6. You can submit multiple projects but they must be posted to InLinkz or social media separately.
7. Most importantly have FUN!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day!
