love is… trick or treat…

It’s true what they say about love.

It really is like a butterfly. It settles upon you when you least expect it. Yup, that’s the case for one of my good friends, Lindsay. Her and her hubby are adorable together, and I’m so glad that they found each other.

Speaking of love, I really love this new Random collection by Crate Paper. Its versatility is endless. I could use this paper for just about anything I choose to scrapbook. I’ve got tons of leftover scraps sitting on the table, so I plan on using that at the crop tonight. Let’s hope I feel creative enough to make more projects!

I found a stack of some Halloween photos, so guess what?! I had to use it on Authentique, of course!

To make my “Trick or Treat” title pop, I pleated pretty black lace around the edges. Just by doing that, it added so much to my page. I’ve got a mini album in the works with these papers, and I can’t wait to share that with everyone.

Aside from anything scrap related, life has been life.

Recently, I’ve been feeling homesick like crazy.

In case you couldn’t tell, I’m such a family girl. I love spending time with my parents and my brothers, and it’s super hard to not have them around, especially when you need their support. I wish that they could all uproot their lives and move closer. Alas, we all know that’s not very practical. …so I’ll just keep pushing forward.

Oh, and is it just me, or is everyone and their mothers having babies?! It’s making me have baby fever, again. 🙂
