Alien Invasion

Drew and I have been working and slaving away down in our basement...we've been like some mad scientists making something eerie and spooky! The school "Boo Bash" was tonight and Drew went as an alien. We did our homework and found the most awesome pumpkin to make...and it just happened to be an "unidentified flying pumpkin" how cool was that! We carved, scooped guts, spray painted, cricutted, we hot glued, we cut and we even stickled! It was rather funny, I over heard a mom saying how cool the pumpkin was and the other mother said, "oh that's for a child who's mom is a scrapbooker." Like we're in some sort of a scrapbooking cult! It was so funny. Anywhoooo.....Drew WON 1st place for his pumpkin! YEAH! We had so much fun, this has been our tradition every year, and this year it was the best, they had games, food and fun...they even had two singing celebrities back from the dead...Elvis and Michael Jackson. The cheerleaders even did a routine to Thriller...what a great family friendly environment! Thank you SBS for making our HALLOWEEN so much fun!

Pumpkin Decorating

Tomorrow night is the Boo Bash at school and Drew decided he wanted to enter he and Dax into the pumpkin carving/decorating contest. Here are a few pics of the beginning stages of the very serious decorating mission. Drew is making a Unidentified Flying Pumpking...this goes along with his new identity of an alien. Dax wanted to make a pirate. We finished Dax's up (no carving involved) and tomorrow we will put the finishing touches on Drew's pumpking...good luck my little goblins!
Three silly pirates took over my kitchen!

Dax @ TM IS....

This year, I wasn't prepared for the IS (Imagination Studio) over at Treasured Memories. I actually am the one who decorated it this year, but I had all intentions on this day to take Dax to the pumpkin patch (hence, the nice green shirt) but it has rained and rained and rained some more...and I just wasn't going to go fuss with all that mud. We ended up going to TM for something and ended up taking a few pics here. Well, let me just say...Dax is not my photogenic child...he just doesn't like taking pictures like Drew does, or maybe he's going through a phase that I forgot about. So here are a few of the ones that I captured without him sticking his tongue out. Happy Halloween! Oh and here are a few pics of my cutie pie last year...he has grown so much!

Darien GOT Mail!

Darien rec'd her shadowbox frame today. I was chomping at the bit to post the picture, but she asked that I wait until she rec'd it, so it would be a surprise. Well, the US Post Office, I have to give them a big round of applause! They were so kind to help me package it up so that it wouldn't get broken and within 2 days Darien got it! She was so shocked and I hope she liked it as much as I enjoyed making it for her. I had such an awesome response for my first give-away and I want to Thank everyone who joined in on the fun. I hope to do another give-away around Christmas time. So, I must say Darien and I have corresponded a little and I just love visiting her blog and seeing all her works of art.

Thank You

I want to take this time to "Thank" the ladies who came over to TM this month to take my monthly calendar class. I had a total of 60+ women who came to this class or purchased the kit. I had ladies that traveled from Alexandria, Houma and Shreveport to take the class...what an honor! It is a continued honor to teach my monthly regulars as well! I had several mother/daughter teams to come this month and I just love that you are sharing your love of scrapbooking with your girls, what a great way to get them into a wonderful lifelong hobby. Again, many thanks to you all! I just adore seeing you each month and hope to see you in Novemeber...we'll have some wonderful new techniques to learn! Take care and Happy Scrapping until then.....

Guest Designer @ Kitz Girlz

I just love this time of year, cooler temperatures, falling leaves and I just love getting prepared for Halloween. This year so many companies put out some really cool Halloween papers and products. As you all know I am Kitz Girl #1 over at Kitz 2 Go and each time we come out with a Kit we will have a Guest Designer to help show you some different takes on what you get with our kitz. Our kitz include all the products and instructions to make 2 - 2 page layouts. Our guest designer comes up with alternatives to our kit. What is nice about the kit is if you are a busy mom left with no creative juices we will help you out and make your layouts fast and easy! I am so excited to show you what Frances came up with...they are just awesome and very creative. She did add a few things such as eyelets and buttons that are not included in the kit. Would love to hear your thoughts and comments! We have sold most of these kitz but if your interested we have a couple left...they are sure to go fast. You can order them at and we can ship to you as well!

Wedding Layouts for a Customer

I have been busy completing wedding layouts...but not my own. I really haven't scrapbooked my own wedding. I started a long long time ago when scrapbooking was in the beginning stages, so to say the least I was not please with the way they turned out and plan one day to try my hand at them again. After these I will have atleast a little experience at using flowers etc...
