Scrapbooking Tri- Challenge

Given that it's Halloween - this sounds oddly Harry Potterish! The Tri Challenge is between Practical Scrappers, Frosted Designs & Stuck On U Sketches.

The Challenge for Practical Scrappers was to use 3 different ribbons on a layout or card - here's my layout:
The paper was bought this way with the stitching around the edge. I created the watermelons out of Bazzill to match Sophia's outfit. I then used my sewing machine to stitch ruffles around the edge with dotted satin ribbon. I used some Doodlebug Striped Grossgrain ribbon for the centres of the flowers and some pink organza ribbon for the question mark.
Here you can see the little tags I used for the title - they're adhered with coloured brads.
Here you can see the ribbon in the circle a little better. I simply ran some stitches along the edge of the ribbon and then pulled it tight. It'll automatically form a circle. I just popped a yellow prima and a gold sparkly brad in the centre to secure it all to the layout. The watermelon seeds are tiny hearts that I punched out and then cut in half.
Here is my question mark. I simply created some holes in the shape I needed, then gently pulled the ribbon through. I didn't pull it too tightly so that the ribbon would still retain it's shape.

The second challenge was from Stuck On U Sketches - I had to use a sketch from Page Maps:
I cut the pp shape out myself after drawing it, then I painted some white acrylic paint over it to tone down the colours a little. The dots either side of the word "jumper" are sparkly blue brads, and I doodled the jumping lines. The button down the bottom is a piece of flair.

My third challenge from Frosted Designs is to use an owl on a card or layout:
I drew the little owl myself and cut it out using different shades of brown Bazzill. Then I used some cut flowers for the wings and boggly eyes for movement. The tree is made from cork, the leaves were cut using decorative scissors and doodled. The buttons are sewn to the layout. The little hand print is Sophia's actual handprint that I cut out and raised on 3D foam tape.
