The Cutest Ladybug Ever, An Adorable Witch, & a Sexy Cat

Ok maybe I was getting a bit carried away with "sexy", but I do think I look better with the ears! On the way to town I told Jason, "You know today is the only day that I can wear cat ears without people thinking I'm crazy." He looked at me with a look that can only be interpreted as, "And you think they aren't?" I'm pretty sure he was just jealous!

This was the first time we took Drew trick or treating (and it was actually my first time trick or treating too!). At the first house, she threw her bag at the lady and turned to run. After that, she tried to go into the houses! Silly baby!

Serendipity Kits (October)


I've been working on my layouts for the October Kit from Serendipity Kits. The American Crafts paper is awesome! Love the colors and they matched (totally unplanned!) the pics I took of Drew wearing that super cute black & white outfit from Jenn. If you haven't already ordered this kit RUN to the site and pick one up! I think there are just a few left!

I've been busy!

I've been scrapping away the past few days and have quite a lot to share!
Here's my cutie nephew on a slide. I don't often do boy pages and it was pretty fun!

Can't decide if I like this card or not. LOL!

And here's Drew and one of her many blankets. She loves the silky side and rubs it between her thumb and index finger. Sometimes when she falls asleep her little fingers are still rubbing together even if the blanket's not there. So sweet!
That's all for tonight! I'm very sleepy!

Simply Obsessed October Kit (and a few other things)

I loved, loved, loved the October kit from Simply Obsessed! How pretty are these Daisy D's papers?

Here are the things I've made with it so far.

I've started another one with my cute nephew but I'll need to check with his mama before I post it.

Here's a couple I did for challenges at Bliss. The first one was a challenge to do a 6" x 12" layout and the second was a 3 product challenge: felt, chipboard, & buttons.

I got my first kit from Serendipity yesterday. I love those papers too and have already started working on my pages--using pics I took yesterday!

I just love her reflection in the last one!

PS--I got my ring back from Zale's last night! It's PERFECT! Now WHY couldn't they have done that the first time?

My {Sweet} Girl

So today I wasn't feeling all that great--had a headache that just wouldn't quit. I was lying on the couch moaning and groaning and my sweetie girl came over and started rubbing my head. Just when I had a total "Mommy moment" thinking that that was the sweetest thing ever, what did she do?

She SPIT on me!!!!!!!!!!!!

I kid you not! My 15 month old actually spit on my face! Gee thanks! Apparently that was her way of saying "Get a grip Mom!" Crazy baby!

I am not a cardmaker

but I did have fun making these for the challenges I hosted at Simply Obsessed. I participated in 4 challenges at Create My Keepsakes as well. Maybe I'll try something new and actually send these to people.

Monday Mojo

Can you believe it's already October? This year is just FLYING by!

This week I want to challenge you to use notebook paper in your layouts. You can cut the fringies off if you want but I prefer mine to look like it just came out of a notebook. Here's an example layout that I did awhile back (part of my DT try-outs actually). I used it for my journaling but you can mat a picture with it or even just use it as a design element on your page.

If you need some more inspiration, check out the gallery at Simply Obsessed. I know that Kory has some great pages using notebook paper and I'm sure there are many others posted as well.

You have until Sunday,October 7 at midnight cst to post your pages. Every page you do will get your name entered into a drawing for a small prize. Be sure to post a link here. And please create something new for the challenge this week.

As always EVERYONE is invited to play along! That includes owners, DT members, members, dogs or cats that may decide to be scrappy, EVERYONE! I can't wait to see what you make!
