a love story on halloween

Remember a few weeks ago when I said that I was Guest Designer for the month of October at Paper Lovelies? Remember how I showed a sneak peek and said I would post a full picture in a couple days? Yeah, I kinda forgot about it. Oops!

Anyway, here is the layout that I did for Paper Lovelies. I used the Halloween line by Graphic 45. Completely out of my safe zone! The paper is beautiful, but just not something I usually work with. Plus, I had to do a 2 page layout; I prefer single page layouts. But you know what? I am happy with the results and even happier that I was able to meet the challenge :)

These pictures were taken on Halloween 2006. It was the last time Erin and I went out for the holiday. We had a lot of fun dressing up as the Queen of Hearts and the March Hare. My husband is such a great sport!!

what pretty is

If your kids are anything like mine, then you'll definitely be able to play along this week at Scrap that Baby!! This time the challenge is all about mischief makers. Yep, when you are talking about my kids, that's an understatement!!

These pictures were taken after Bekah got into her brother's (washable, thank goodness) markers and decided to beautify her baby dolls.

I used the November Kit from Scrappy Chics. Love, love, love all the new Pink Paislee line "Sweetness"!!

Was a little hesitant and not sure what to do with all the gorgeous paper, but I decided to do a little fussy cutting and cut the corner flowers out of one sheet. I then attached it to my page using some pop up dots. I think I'll be doing this often, I really like how it turned out!

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, things are still a bit...I can't even think of a word. Just missing my Papa and still coping with the loss. Hopefully I will be back to regular blogging real soon.

Papa Joe

Thursday, October 7, 2010, was the day I lost my beloved Papa Joe. I thought that by now I would be able to write about it, to express my thoughts. I was wrong. I'm just not ready.

I will say this...I love my Papa Joe so very much. He was more than just a Papa to me, but also a father figure. I miss you Papa.
