so i don't have many photos from halloween. a couple before we left, a few iphone pics. truth be told, i'm not very good at being a part of an activity if i have my camera out.
i'm sure others are better at this…but i miss out if i'm using my DSLR. i'm always hanging back, standing apart from everyone…camera in front of my face, and i miss the moment.
i didn't want to do that this year. i wanted to be a part of the festivities this year. for those of you that can photograph a moment and be present…that is absolutely awesome. maybe one day i'll be there, maybe not.
the girls have been BEGGING me to wear their costumes again, so i might let them dress up and play in the backyard and i'll snap some pics then.
anyway, here are a few photos. harper was a "GOOD witch" as she told everyone, sadie was a strawberry (i think this outfit was probably supposed to be strawberry shortcake, but she wanted to be a STRAWBEWWY!), lucy was a turkey and cate was a bumblebee.
i had grandiose plans to make catie a pilgrim (complete with a musket and hat), but shockingly (not,snicker) it didn't happen. so she wore one of H's old costumes.
does anyone see a shocking resemblance?
oh how i love that CZ.
here are the shots i got:
happy friday sweet friends! be looking for an awesome giveaway this weekend!
i was so flattered to be asked to guest design for american crafts this month.
here's what i came up with:
this first layout is about harper and all of the things about her that i am most thankful for.
this one is about how grateful i am that jimmy is home and our family is together again:
then there is my attempt at a card. teehee!
and last is my favorite project. i've decided to do a gratitude journal this month. here is the beginning of the journal..i still have lots to add!

you heard me mention earlier this month that this time of the year is CRAZY for my family. so, unfortunately i only had time to do three layouts. boooo!
here's what i came up with.
made using: handmade only
you might recognize this cardstock background! it's one of the examples i did for the SC doily+misting tutorial. told you i loved it!~ 😉
the "mask" for this layout was the negative of the crate paper "random" sticker sheet from tatting:
i stamped the butterfly image (LOVE that stamp!) and embossed it with aqua zing.
she's the girl
handmade (buttons and leaves)
a vibrant page for my vibrant girl!
have a great day!
