Melon Pops and a card

Here's the completed scrapbook page I was waiting to photograph.
I've used Kathy's Waffle Sketch for October as the starting point (which is also the Daring Cardmakers challenge this week) and kept my shapes as four sided with rounded corners for the Scrapbook Sisters challenge #6 - Shapes. (Is there a name for a four sided shape with all the corners rounded?)
I can't say that I haven't been influenced by my joining the Pretty Paper Party (it's not a political movement, although wouldn't that be good?), but I can't imagine myself ever looking at scrapbooking in the same way.
Here are the supplies I've used.

There were some left over punched shapes and borders, so I combined these with some kraft card and Bell Blvd stickers to make a mini card for the Less Is More polka dots challenge #38.

Cute layout. I really liked your choice of the Thickers. I used to shy away from alphabets... but with layouts like yours, I'm feeling inspired to try them. :)
