Top Ten

Woo hoo! My Pumpkin Patch layout is currently in the top ten votes on Two Peas In a Bucket!
It's cool that someone other than me thinks it is a good layout! :)

Finally, some sunshine. It still isn't a whole lot of sunshine, but I was able to take a halfway decent picture. Whatever happend to fall?

Canyon got some vampire teeth from a candy treat at Walgreens last week. He thinks they are just the coolest thing. I got these pics of him demonstrating how scary he can look. I have one additional picture that I didn't use with a really scary face. I might do another layout with just that pic, not sure yet.

This is some more of the Pink Paislee Twilight line. Great paper, so much fun to use.

I love the tree. I'm not so fond of the gravestones below the tree, so I just cut them off.

I cut the tree out of the white line paper, moved the paper over, then stuck the tree back down to cover up part of the hole I made.

I also used some Tim Holz Rock Candy Stickles on the tree. Cool stuff.

The little trees and bats on the orange paper are from the matching stamp set. I just inked the stamp with a marker, that way I could leave off the headstones and the border that I didn't like. I also used the Rock Candy on these trees.
The green photo mats were cut from the original center of the scalloped paper. With Canyon's blue shirt I thought that too much green would clash, so I cut out the center, replaced it with some of the white line paper and used the green for mats.

The Beware die cut also has Rock Candy Stickles on it.

Thanks for stopping by. I still have a sick kid, maybe I will get something else done today.

Today at our house

I actually finished a layout yesterday. It has been to dreary to get a good picture. Hopefully the sun will come out so I can take a picture and post it.
I had tons of relatives in town this weekend. I only saw a few of them and only for a few minutes. Marissa was sick. She had a fever, cough and very sore throat. Good thing it was a long weekend. She went to school today, (yes it has been more than 24 hours since she had a fever). She absolutely had to go to volleyball practice today or she would have to miss her game tomorrow. Makes me laugh how important sports are to her. She doesn't get that from me.

This morning, Canyon is sick. Another day at home for me. I don't know if they have h1 or something else. I kinda hope it is h1N1 so I don't have to worry about them getting it when we are on vacation.

I am getting a lot of stuff done around the house since I am stuck at home. I cleaned out the laundry room and JT's closet. I acquired a huge stack of clothes to take to the mission. We keep so much crap! I have to make myself get rid of stuff, and this isn't even my stuff. My closets are another story entirely. JT made the comment that I needed to get rid of some of my shoes that I never wear. Poor guy got a PMS earful about how even though I don't wear them all the time I still need them!

Hopefully no one else gets sick and the sun comes out!

Discover the Great Outdoors

Wow! It's been over a week since I posted anything. I was doing so well.
I am in the midst of planning a Disney World vacation and honestly, I can't think of much else. I know it is pathetic. My husband told me so for the 100th time last night when I was rearranging out dining reservations yet again. Then he told me again this morning when I asked him to trace our route from one plane to the next at the Denver airport to make sure we could make our connection with only a 40 minute layover (the flight he was on this morning is the same time as our outgoing flight next month). Then, he told me again when I called him at 8:05 because he didn't call me and that is when our connection would be leaving. And, once again when I freaked out because he was just getting off the first plane because it had been delayed for de-icing. So go ahead, tell me....

So... this is still one of the layouts I did at the Scrappin' ladies retreat. I will, eventually, scrap again! :)
I love this picture of Canyon at the lake, and I love the Cosmo Mr. Campy line.
Sorry some of the pics are blurry, I was trying to keep my page out of the snow! Yes, snow!
