Happy Halloween!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I love Halloween!! Iwould like to stay home and hand out candy, but DH is too good to walk up to the doors with the kids, and wants to leave Cameron out of it this year. Not fair. Samantha went last year, and so Cameron will go at the same age too - no staying home to hand out candy for me. Samantha & Cameron are going as little girl & boy dinosaurs, and Miss Katelyn is a witch or something like that. *snicker* I forget, she keeps changing her mind!
Oh, which reminds me I need to charge the Camera batteries! eeks, don't want to forget that.
The competition over at SGK is rocking!
These ladies are really working their skillz in this contest.
This weeks song picks are tough too. I need to get working on the next 5 weeks work. Can't believe October is almost over. I'm always amazed how time flies, and I always talk about it! lol

I love the wall cling above. Christine from TallyScrapper sent this to me in the mail. I promised I'd put it up. It's now sitting above the mantle in the front room. I look up and I get to see it. It instantly puts a smile on my face.

On a sad note (notice I go from one emotion to the next?) and I mean really sad, depressing, heart aching/wrenching painful note - Our Guest DT member @ TallyScrapper this month tragically lost her husband. So swift, unexpected, mind numbing.. I cry thinking about it. I would hate hate to have to go through that, and wish I could do something to help her out. Keep Staci C in your prayers, and if you can donate to the family, check out her blog and donate.

So much more to talk about, but I have to get off here and do something around this house.

I've been TAGGED!!

Michelle Stanzione tagged me so I am tagging 7 of my blogger friends :)

1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself (on your blog, we all want to know them).
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 Random things

1. I hate cooking even though I am good at it.
2. I love being wrapped up in DH's arms at the end of a long day
3. I love thunderstorms and sitting on the front porch while the thunder is cracking like a whip outside.
4. Sometimes I think up bad scenarios and freak myself out with my imagination and all the things that can go wrong. Don't know if I'm explaining this well or not...
5. I hate touching the icecream scoop. It's metal and feels... GRRRR I just hate it and an hardly remove it from the dishwasher at times.
6. I question everything (damn near) - hubby thinks it's an illness.. he may be right. If I think of a question though, I have to ask it. So if you're talking about something as mundane as gum, you could easily get "grilled" with 3-10 questions within minutes. *smirk*
7. I love having long hair, but hate brushing it. One of these days I'll chop it all off.

I am tagging the following people
1. Sarah
2. Starla
3. Amy
4. Christine
5. Amanda
6. Michelle
7. Nancy

Is it the weekend yet?

hahaha this week is moving slow. if it were moving fast i'm sure I would be bitching about that as well. I just saw a sneak peek of the kit we're getting from Tallyscrapper this month. It's not Halloween, but so FULL of color and ultra wickedly cool scrapbook items.. I can't WAIT to get it! I'm on a mission today to make 2.. yes, just TWO birthday party sleepover invitations so Katie can hand them out at school tomorrow. I've never made an invitation, but I will assume it's like making a card. Hope so, cuz I think that's how I'm gonna roll with it.

*Snow Raking*
Crazy kid. Wonder what she's gonna do this year?

Have you seen the new Glitz Netz? Really cool stuff I tell ya!! (It's the black circly thing on the flower. And the new Prima & HS flowers are delish!

LOVIN the Maya Road felt!

Check out this CUTE box I made my secret sis, it used to hold a promotional thing we got from Marlboro.. that company is always sending cute things out... including this box I altered.

outties for now...

Pealicious Friday ?!

So the kids didn't eat their oatmeal so well this morning.
I'm putting away scrap goodies and walk in to the noise of peas dropping on the kitchen floor.
frozen peas.

I mopped yesterday... is it ok to let the kids eat off the floor then?
hahaha oh well. I'm sure a lil extra dirt will help keep them healthy!
On another note, our oldest DD Katelyn asked me yesterday while I was scrubbing cupboards, "Mom, when did you start to LIKE boys?"
HUH? umm rewind please.
Yep.. she asked.
Without a beat I said, "Oh, around 11 or 12."
So my DD will be turning 11 in 13 days. Eleven.
and she likes her arch nemesis since 2nd grade named, Graham.
I'm glad she felt she could come to me and ask me :)
Happy Friday - I have some peas to pick up.

I think I'm sick.

Yeah. I've definitely got a bug. I think I need to go to the doctor. See, it's Fall... and I'm SPRING cleaning again. Feels more like summer - but anyway, still doesn't change the fact I've been in the nooks & crannies of my kitchen spiffying it all up. Smells so good in here cuz we finally dusted too. Imagine that. Dust free and smellin' good.

Dang, got sidetracked and started scrapping on this project I had out.
yep, the cleaning supplies have gone to my head!

Being part of the Winter DT, we were challenged to make a card. Oh man.. a card? Seriously?! Yep. So I did it. It does mean I have two Christmas cards done for this year already.. I'm so proud *smirk*.

Scrap that Tune!!!

The Design Team at Scrappy Giraffe Kits Presents:


Over the next 8 weeks you will be required to use your imagination, stretch your creativity and use up your scrappy Stash. Here's how the game works:

Each week you will be given TITLES to three different songs. The songs will vary in music style and artist, they will range from the 1950's to the present. This will be basis for your assignment. Each week you will get a set of three different missions to choose from, as well as three different LO requirements.

for instance week 1 may look like this:

song choices

1. I heard it through the grapevine (Marvin Gaye) - 5 points

2. Every Rose has it's thorn (Poison) - 4 points

3. Broken Wings (Mr. Mister) -3 points

Scrappy Mission

1. Scrap the Lyrics - 2 points

2. Use the Sketch with the song title and/or lyrics -4 points

3. Use the title of the song to tell the story of your pictures! - 3 points

*the requirements are not the only thing that can be present on your LO unless specified, however, the requriements you choose must be the majority of your LO.

1. Striped PP and buttons -3 points

2. Cardstock only and brads - 2 points

3. two or more different manufacturers PP's and Ribbon -4 points


1. Hidden journaling. -3 points


You must mix and match from the three lists to create your LO (1 item from each list), each item will have a point value (you will not know the point value ahead of time, the above is just a list of examples). there will also be a secret item each week, and if you use that item you will receive the secret item points. You may also add the bonus to your LO to gain extra points.

In addition to creating your LO using the criteria for the week, you will vote each week for your favorite LO via PM to the game host. you cannot vote for yourself. the person with the most votes also receives additional points. At the end of 8 weeks the person with the most points wins the CONTEST
