Can you believe it's October???

September just flew by! I think I've been so busy going from activity to activity that it just made it speed by even more than usual.

So yes it is the 1st of the month so new kits are up over at Coordinates Collections. This month I took the fun "Spooks" kit. Lots of fun Halloween stuff from Prima & SEI, a really cool Glitter Cut from Fancy Pants, some MM letters & Scenic Route Chipboard. I did 3 Halloween layouts and 1 other layout.

Here's a Halloween layout I did about a Bee Costume I made when Fritz was a baby. Since then Becca wore it, some cousins, and a few friends. It's made out of cozy fleece with a stuffed body(so it's a nice toasty costume).

Then here's my non-halloween layout. I used stuff from the kit and added in a piece of kraft cardstock and some MM Tiny Alphas.

"home is where the Heart is" was totally inspired by that cute chipboard house by Scenic Route. I walked around the house and took pictures of some of my favorite things. On the back I journaled about what each one is. Briefly: a desk that has been passed down to the eldest son on my husbands side of the family this dates back to the 1700's; my "new" kitchen (we remodeled a few years ago); a needlepoint chair from my grandmothers house; a collection of black & white family photos(old & new); a welcoming arrangement hanging on the door; and a stack of quilts all made by my grandmother.(one a gift when I graduated college, a christmas present after I got married, a crib quilt for each of my children(she passed away with my daughters quilt still in her quilting frame) and lastly a quilt I got to pick from her collection after she passed away)
I just posted the Guest DT challenge over in the forum. If you'd like a chance to work with one of the awesome kits Jamie puts together go check it out. I can't wait to get my hands on my November kit it's called "Just for Laughs" Pattern Papers from MME & Pink Paislee...YUM!
So that's about all for today. Getting ready for some new episodes of some fave shows tonight.

Just saw them in the gallery! Great job! Unfortunately, my favorite shows this week are going to be missed due to the debate... Thanks goodness for!
