Halloween just around the corner

Halloween is upon us. And, I'm hoping to get my kids well before it gets here. We've had the vicious cycle lately, one is sick, then the other, then back to the other, and so on. It's bound to happen, but I'm ready for it to be over already and we're not even into the major sick season yet. LOVELY! Back to Halloween, my oldest is going to be Batman, and is EXTREMELY excited about it. He's been talking about Halloween since August, and as soon as October 1st came, he thinks it's Halloween EVERY day! My youngest is going to be Superman. It's a super heroes Halloween in our house. They want me to be Wonder Woman, but I don't want to scare anyone who comes to the door, so I'll be finding just a simple Halloween shirt to wear. An added bonus, is Grandma will be here for Halloween. My mom and the puppies will be in town and the boys are ecstatic! She'll be here for Mr. P's last soccer game also. They're disappointed Grandpa won't be here, but they'll talk to him plenty. And, we'll be back for Christmas in just a couple months.

With Halloween in mind, we've been wanting to head to the pumpkin patch, but with it raining the past 2 weekends, we haven't made it yet. But, we've been itching to carve pumpkins, so we headed to Wal-Mart to pick out a few pumpkins to hold us over until we can get to the patch, hopefully this weekend. Here is the outcome!

Anyway, another reason for the Halloween talk, I taught a kid's class this past weekend at A Scrapbook Store, and it was a BLAST!!! We created Halloween treat baskets, and the kids left with their baskets filled with treats, thanks to Elise and myself. The kids stamped and stickered those baskets up.

I'm scheduled to teach a class this Friday for an altered project, a wall hanging. Interested? Call the store, 884-1944, to reserve your spot. Here's a sneak peek!!! I love this wall hanging set from KaiserCraft! It's inexpensive and the possibilities are ENDLESS!
The October Kit at A Scrapbook Store is available, and these are the 3 layouts I created for the kit. The EXCLUSIVE item to this kit is Pink Bubblegum Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels! It's awesome and I used it on each layout and the card! It was fun to scrapbook pictures of girls, since I never get to do that. (Thanks Elise!) :) And, the add-on kit, is pretty spectacular too! Check it out!
