Halloween Costumes!

Hello!!  I am still here.  I really want to scrap but need to be inspired.  That means I need to start visiting your blogs more often to get my mojo going.  I miss all of it: scrapping, visiting, etc.  Life has been busy - as I am sure it has been for all of you.  Wanted to stop by and share something that has been keeping me (us) busy...making our Halloween costumes.

Theme this year:  Birds of a feather, flock together  (wink)  I like the irony of that and tMN's logo.
Bald Eagle, Owl and Peacock










 My son created his own costume based on a character he made up
from a game he and his friends [pretend] play at recess.
He was thrilled to see his vision to fruition.









My mom and me
Check out my make-up
Thank you to ModCloth blog for the make-up tutorial and 
Gold Feathers blog for the costume idea!!


Happy missing you,

Make it Monday No. 48

 Happy Monday fellow scrappers.  During September and October, our DT is joining up with other challenge blogs for some fun.  So... the Make it Monday challenges will become part of the Fall Frenzy.  We are going to have a different sketch for September, October and November.  You will have until December 1st to link up.  The more you link up the more entries you get in the drawing.  And the final prize will be $15 to shop at The Memory Nest.

1 link up = 1 Entry
2  link ups = 3 entries
3 link ups = 6 entries

Here is the October sketch that I created.  I was inspired by one of the paint palettes you get at the store.  I LOVE the BEAUTIFUL creations the design team were inspired to make.

Ray of Sunshine with SUMMER SUN!

Happy Humpday!!  I am sorry I have been so MIA!!  I miss blogging and scrapping.  I have not been able to do much of either lately.  I am doing me best to visit your blogs.  You may notice that I come by every couple to few days, but I visit multiple posts so I can catch up on your creative pieces.  

I recently got a permanent position teaching Pre-K.  I am only part time but the adjustment is taking a little longer than expected.  The class is wonderful and I LOVE what I am doing.  It is just learning to balance work, homelife (running the kids) and hobbies.  I am not ready to give up on the scrapbooking endeavor ~ owning a store and running a blog.  Plus, I would 
Miss ALL of YOU ~ my scrappy friends.  Thanks for being patient with me!!


Here is another layout using the Summer Sun Collection by Fancy Pants.  
Such a fun line.  I hope to be back this week to share layouts of the other
summer collection by Fancy Pants!


and a close up of my title and stitching




Happy to have scrappy friends like you!
