Make a Wish

Huh. It's blurry where the scan met.

Gosh, Prima's new journaling blocks are so freaking cute! I hadn't seen them until Heather stocked them at the store at 3SB. I love them!

Happy Halloween, everyone! Gotta go feed my little ghouls and get them ready to walk the neighborhood tonight :)

So I thought I'd grab some branches from outside and hang some glittery spooky stuff on them. So this was a totally free project - yay! Had all the stuff already, and borrowed my friend's Paperdoll Cricut cartridge. I wouldn't have bought that one, but it has some cute accessories on it.

Grabbed some black spray paint and painted the branches, then threw a little glitter around on them, then sprayed them with a spray sealer.
After the images were cut out of cardstock, I grabbed my coffee jar where I keep a little watered down Mod Podge and sponge brush. Mod Podged them, then glittered them up. I stuck a triangluar shaped coffee filter in a coffee cup to catch the extra glitter, then it was easy to just pour the extra glitter back into the jar when done.
Gave them a little bit of time to dry and then sprayed them with a spray sealer. That's it! So easy.
Happy Halloween all!

Gosh, this new Sassafras Lass is the cutest stuff! "Cute" is very high praise in my book, and this is just the cutest.

I can't believe Sara is 12. She's got the sweetest nature. She was invited to a birthday party for a friend she doesn't really hang around with that much, but she wanted to go. Sara had a different friend sleeping over the night before the birthday party in question. Over breakfast, we were talking about the party. The girl spending the night said she was told she could come to the birthday party, but only for 30 minutes because another girl would be there who doesn't like her and will not stay if Sara's friend stays. When Sara heard the story, she decided she just didn't want to go to someone's party who was being ugly. She wanted no part of any drama. I love that about her.

I had to go to the mall to get a new suit and Sara wanted to go with me. We dropped off the sleepover guest then headed to the mall. She could have changed her mind and gone to the party, but she said, nope, I'd rather just be with you, mom. Aww! Love her so much.

Took her into Claire's to see if there was a trinket she might want. She was wanting what I call "old lady beads," the round plastic big beads girls seem to be wearing around here. She didn't really like them and said she wanted something more "natural". Seconds later, we spy these cute mushroom earrings and owl necklace. She said that's the more natural look she was going for - hee!

So out came this paper right when we got home, of course!

I've got the new Sass Life at the Pole coming from my favorite store, 3 Scrappy Boys! They ship SO fast and I bet I'll have it in a day or two - can't wait to play with it!

The fabulous Jenn made these funky fabric flowers and sent them! Thanks, Jenn! Hoping she'll open an Etsy or something with them soon.

So I look out in the back yard, and Sara has a pink mink scarf, huge sunglasses, her hair in an updo of sorts and a sweater dress. Oh, and her new cell phone. It's 80+ degress outside. Ask her what she's doing and she says she's playing teacher. Hee! I guess that pink fluffy scarf is all the rage with teachers these days.

Anyway! Grabbed the camera and snapped some pictures with her phone/iPod thingy DH bought the girls. She's wanted a cell phone for a long time, but no way was I getting her one. She didn't need it! This year, boy, do they need it. Crazy schedules and never knowing what club they want to stay after school for. Thought I'd be glad, now I just worry they're going to lose them :)

Country Girl at Heart

Sigh. I just love Collage Press papers. Thank you to Happy Scrappin' for the awesome gift certificate - yay! Got a set of Collage Press, some cute Halloween papers, the cutest little bird stamp and a set of super cute Christmas paper. Now if I only had more time to scrap with it!
Here's a simple one:

Fun News and Card Challenge!

Made these first two for a card challenge over at 3 Scrappy Boys. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone does for their different card challenges! I could use some card inspiration :)

Different RAKs are going on by the DT members and a pretty stamp set by the owner for anyone loading anything into the gallery this weekend.

And an old one I'd made for Em's friend who won the spelling bee :) Filled the popcorn box with candy and a matching pencil.

I'm so glad I found 3 Scrappy Boys. Those are the most genuine, nicest girls over there! I look forward to checking in throughout the day - it's a nice break from work. I'm on the design team now for their kits and super excited to get the first one. It will be the trio kit, where Heather mixes in three different manufacturers - can't wait!

Have a great weekend!
