Dance to the Music

Happy Halloween everyone.  I hope you have a not-so-spooky day.  We have our candy purchased, the pumpkins carved, and will just have to wait until it gets dark for the doorbell to ring non-stop for a few hours.
Today I made a fun page with Sugary Fancy’s Music and Love kit.  Do you love music?!  This kit is perfect for you!  It is about music and love in our life!  I hope you get inspired with it!!  It comes with 10 papers and 60 elements.  You also may like Music & Love Add On and Music & Life Alpha!
Here we have Dave and Nicole dancing,  How fun.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Halloween.

The title to the kit says it all Vrooom! Chelle’s Creations kit is perfect for that little speedster in your life. I love the colors, so bright and bold. Notice the word art at the bottom-instant titles for your page-too easy.
Connor is putting together and then smashing his traffic jam puzzle.  No, he is not 6’2”, nor does he weigh 185 pounds.  I guess I will have to measure him before this goes to print.
Thanks for stopping by and have a smashing day.

1980s Remix


Last April, Krista’s Bunco group had an 80s party and Krista went all out with her garment. She looks so rad, fer shur. She was totally bad!! When Krista showed the page to her family she got responses from different ends of the spectrum.

Martin says: “That’s what you [Krista] get for being so weird!”

Andy says, “That’s what you [Krista] get for being so awesome.”

Spooktacular Invitation

They're creepy and they're kooky, Mysterious and spooky,
They're all together ooky, The Addams Family.
Their house is a museum  Where people come to see 'em
They really are a scream  The Addams Family.
(Neat) (Sweet) (Petite)
So get a witches shawl on   A broomstick you can crawl on
We're gonna pay a call on   The Addams Family


This little song has to be in the top ten TV show tunes. The spooky lyrics and the tune are such a sweet reminder of a fun era of life. For my Jessica layout this week, I made an e-mail invitation for Laurie and Terry for their annual Halloween Spooktacular. I just love the little costumed children-how absolutely sweet!! You can get the Splendid Fiin’s Happy Halloween Patterend Paper pack at 25% off today. It’s just $4.49. Pick it up HERE.


Have a Spooktacular week and Happy Birthday Krista!!!

Definition:  ker·plunk adverb  
To fall with a sound like that of a little boy falling rapidly into water. The definition is something like that anyway! Connor is having a great time kerplunking into the water going down the slide at the water park.


This fun mini kit, Air Marin, comes from Steph. designs and you can find it at ScrapMatters. This kit is perfect for all those beach shots you took this summer.

If you give a Girl a Gourd…

….She'll ask for a glass of milk to go with it. And when she sees that you've set up the camera equipment to take pictures, she'll want her picture taken too. Since the gourd is such a new plaything, she will probably touch it. She will probably smell it, and she will even try to eat it. After she gets bored with the gourd, she will want some real food like Oreos. Then she will say “No more pictures?”


For this fun page, I used Fall’s Fanciful Colors by MHK Scrap Bytes and Sketchy Times Alpha by WM Designs Squared, both from ScrapMatters.

The template, Seven Days in May is by In the Making Designs. You can get it at Jessica


There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!
