Congratulations to Donna Miller


My friend Donna, who is a wonderful person and a talented scrapper, made a beautiful ATC, which is featured in this blog: 37 DAYS

You can even download a copy of this Artist Trading Card for yourself! Thank you, Donna, for your generosity and inspiration. When I grow up, I want to be like you.

BeWITCHing


This is my lovely daughter last year. She was a witch. And a beautiful one at that.

This is the layout that I had done originally featuring my Kaylie as a witch. However, for the sketch challenge I posted one of Liam in his fireman's costume. Obviously, this page is more suitable to these photos but I wanted matching pages for the kids.Oogelie Googelie by Sausan Designshttp://www.scrapbookgraphics.com/xcart/product.php?productid=19246&cat=0&page=2Eye Love You Grunge Overlays by Berna Datemahttp://www.scrapbookgraphics.com/xcart/product.php?productid=19445&cat=0&page=1Folded Scallop Matte Templates by Jen Caputohttp://www.scrapbookgraphics.com/xcart/product.php?productid=19203&cat=0&page=1Round Alpha, spider and bat from Spookalicious page set by Taran Conyershttp://www.scrapbookgraphics.com/xcart/product.php?productid=19367&cat=0&page=1Bat/Moon element from Spooky Bits by Trish Joneshttp://www.scrapbookgraphics.com/xcart/product.php?productid=19357&cat=0&page=2Staples by Jen PatricksFont: Pea JessiBeWITCHing Page set by Taran Conyers at SBGhttp://www.scrapbookgraphics.com/xcart/product.php?productid=16892&cat=0&page=1

It Is Raining...

We have been having great weather here in the garden state considering that Autumn is here and Winter is just around the corner. We have only had 2 days of frost, but other than that it has been great...the weather is warm during the day...72 degrees...can't be beat. Anyway, if rain is the worst that I have to put with, then I am ok with it. I could stand some sunshine, though.
