Polka Pumpkin

Halloween for us is a celebration of fall fun, we usually go to a trunk or treat event at church or some other community sponsored celebration.  Today I'm sharing a picture of our pumpkin that is still sitting in the house because I didn't want her to be beat up by Sandy.  I should have sat it outside before I left this morning because when I get home it will getting dark.  I used the cricut cartridge George to cut the circles using some cricut vinyl.  The inspiration for the pumpkin was found on the internet.  Prayers and thoughts for all those affected by Sandy, we are blessed that our area was sphared.

Hula Hoop Skillz

Today I'm sharing another LO to be included in our family reunion scrapbook.  The LO includes pictures taken of our DD participating in a hula hoop contest while we were in Orlando.  I'm still scrappin' my stash, I used some old sticker lettering (hula) and misc. rub-ons.  I used my Slice to cut the remianing lettering for the title.  Thank you for stopping by, hope you have a blessed week.

Today's LO uses the group picture taken during my DH's family reunion that we hosted here in Virginia this past summer.  The reunion's theme was "Unity" and we had almost 80 people in attendance.  This year has been a year of family reunions for us so I decided to dedicate an entire album to all of the reunions that we attended in 2012.  We  attended four this year including the Tom Joyner reunion in Orlando; I still have more reunion LOs to complete.  Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a great week!

Wednesday Wanderings

Its Wednesday and not too much happening in my "neck of the woods."  Its a beautiful, cool Fall day and I'm ready for lunch, we are having a small celebration here at work so I'm eating a little late.  My first love is scrapbooking so making cards can be a chore for me but I have been on a cardmaking roll lately.  In celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness I'm sharing one of the cards that I made.  This card was also posted on Scraps of Color for the Working With Our Stash Breast Cancer Awareness challenge.  All items came from my stash and the card will be going postal to a survivor within the next few days.

Hello Monday, not too much scrappin' done over the weekend but I did manage to finish this LO this morning!  The pictures in the LO are of DH and I while we were in Orlando in August at the Gaylord Palms.  The sketch for this LO is from the most recent Anytime , Anywhere , Scrapbooking Experience challenge hosted by Tiare. I am also submitting this LO for the use your stash challenge over at Scraps of Color, this month's challenge is to use buttons.  Everything from the LO came from my stash and the title was cut using the Groovy Times cricut cartridge which I purchased from HSN on clearance.

Family Dinner

Hello Friday, today I'm sharing a 2 page LO that I completed at the retreat.  The LO uses pictures taken during our Saturday evening dinner at our family reunion.  The reunion colors were red and white so thats why you see so much of it.  The LO sketch was inspired by another one of Tiare's Anytime, Anywhere Scrapbooking Experience Challenge.  Wishing everyone a blessed weekend, thank you for stopping by!

Today I'm sharing one of the layouts that I completed while I was at the retreat last weekend.  I even purchased the bling from the onsite mobile scrapbooking store and everything else was from my stash.  The pictures used in the LO were taken during a recent pinning ceremony for an organization that I am a member of.  My DH did the pinning since it is the auxillary organization for the wives of his fraternity members, on this particular day a local chapter was being chartered.  I have other pictures that I plan to scrap from that day too.

I'm doing a happy dance, super excited.  I won the grand prize at the weekend scrapbooking retreat that I'm attending.  I won a Silhouette Cameo!  I wanted to post a picture of me but I was sleep deprived and really looked bad so I am sharing the certificate that I was presented.  A special thank you to Cassie and her team, you can see some of Cassie's projects at Cassie's Craft Cafe and information about attending her annual "Croptobler Fest".  We had such a grand time that we didn't even get a chance to take our group picture.

Sea World

Today I'm sharing one of the LOs that I'll be doing from our trip to Orlando, I used pictures  taken while we were at Sea World.  I have been trying to post one of these LOs for quite a while;  I have been having trouble with the way that the pictures are uploading too.  My daughter is wearing a t-shirts that was a made and gifted to us by CraftyNetta over at Craft Creations by Netta. She also gifted us souvenir tumblers and some scrappin' goodies which were used on the LO. If you head over to her blog you'll see her post about the tumblers. We are so thankful and appreciative for her kindness.

Hello October

I wanted to post something today since I may not get a chance to post until I get back from my retreat. So today I'm sharing the LO that I put together using pictures taken of our daughter on the first day of school and the sketch inspiration was from Tiare over at iClassygirl. from the Anytime, Anywhere Scapbooking Experience challenge.

Hello Monday and hello October!  I've been busy doing what I don't know since I'm way behind in everything!  The weekend went way by too fast considering I haven't started packing for my upcoming weekend scrapbook retreat.  I'm about to start stressing since I still need to finish a LO before I leave!  Wishing everyone  a blessed week.
