PS Layout a day challenge 14th through 20th

SO I am slowly doing these challenges. I would have more done but I forgot to bring my colored cardstock to my folks and I am too lazy to go to my house and get it. I am going to make a point to bring it tomorrow after cleaning some more. But this is what I have managed to do so far...

October 14th Challenge: October general challenges
I chose the first one listed which was to use the words trick or treat in a layout.
you can't see the title and I am going to re-do it over white cardstock anyway it says "Easter Treats" all done with PS october kit.

October 15th entry done with ps oct kit did not fit challenge of the day.

October 16th Challenge: use your oldest ps kit
This is my oldest as I use them in the same month I get them again done with ps october kit

October 20th Challenge: Use more than 4 pictures on a page (if it is a 2 pager - use more than 8 pictures). I managed to get 9 photos in the two pager and it doesn't look too crowded so I am pretty proud of them :D

These are my next three layouts I have done for PS octoberfest.

October 10th Challenge: no pattern paper

This layout was done with PS October add on kit. It includes Crate Paper Prudence papers, I added the Bazzill myself, Prudence glitter strip and Crate Paper prudence rub-on.

October 12th Challenge: Birthdays
In honor of my grandma's birthday yesterday the challenge today is all about birthdays. Create a layout, birthday cards or even birthday party favors!
This is from my Son's birthday. I can't remember who makes the paper but it is from the Play line. And the rest is Misc items

Since I am moving this week I am not sure how much more I will get done but I am a sucker lately for a challenge. I plan on taking some of my basic items with me to my folks. (The boys and me are going down early to clean the house before we offically move in.) So I do plan on getting some in. We will see though. :D
