Riley Goes Black 'n Orange!

Happy late Tuesday!  Are you ready for Halloween?  I'm not a H'ween person myself but the kids have so much fun at our annual church Harvest Festival and dress up to visit the neighbors.  I'm SOOOO excited about my dd14's costume in paricular - this year, she's dressing up as the Black Swan.  Her costume is TDF!! I hope to take pictures to share with you soon - she looks absolutely AMAZING :)  DD16 is going with a group of friends and they are all vampires, and the other two are still undecided though time is a tickin'!  

So .... today is the day that Riley and Company starts a new bi-weekly challenge!  This week it was brought to us by the fun and talented, Margie!  She challenged us to make a card using Orange and Black!  I used the newly released Bridezilla, colored with prismacolors and added some super fine glitter to her hair and outfit, tucked into a super easy layout.  I have had this paper from SU for forever and forgot I had it until lil man needed a paper for his pirate map last week and I found this skull and crossbones (on the flip side!)  SUPAH COOL!



Please stop by the Challenge blog and link up your cards to the challenge using Orange and Black ..... we'd love to see your creations and stop by and visit you!  If you would like to play along using a card/project and upload it to a Gallery like SCS, use the keyword Riley2111.



Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
