Just a Layout

Just wanted to share a layout that I did this weekend. I had such a fun time with my scrappy friends. We went to a hotel and scrapped the night away (didn't get to bed until 4:30 AM!) But it was so fun! Love them!

One of my favorite companies to scrap with is Echo Park. There products totally appeal to my style of scrapbooking.  I used their "Playground" line and it was perfect for these photos that I had floating around of Maddie when she was almost 2. She had such a fear of going down the slide at this little park up by our house that the kids called the "Blue Park." I just so happen to have my camera that day snapping some candid shot of  the kids and I turned around and saw Maddie finally braving the slide. She was so brave :). So just a little bit of advice - take your camera with you all the time because you never know when the time will be just right to snap some wonderful memories. And with camera phones now days being just as good as some point and shoot camera's you should have no problem getting a great photo!  Thanks for looking!

Have a great day!

Happy October everyone! This is my favorite time of year !Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I always loved dressing up into costumes that were the total opposite of what I really looked like everyday and of course the candy! As an adult I still love it just as much! We plan the kids costumes months in advance and decorate the house up nice and scary! And they always have the cutest scrapbook paper for Halloween - and this year the scrapbook companies did not dissapoint! I did these projects up for Heartland and for my guest stint on the MME blog. Soo- here they are-

I am totally digging shaped cards lately! I am not really a card maker - but I just had to make these cards! They were super easy and fun to make with my Silhouette machine! I see more of these in my future!

Doodlebug has always been one of my absolute favorite companies and I absolutely ADORED their Halloween line this time around. Check out these babies:

Darling right!!!

Here is what I created using this super cute line:
I loved the sentiment on this one :) The little bag is filled with chocolate eyeballs in it! So fun!
I hope you all have a wonderful and spook-tacular October!

Take care!
