I can’t believe that it’s November already. Where did this year go?! Halloween came and went, and now we’re in full gear towards Thanksgiving. Not too long from now, we will be busy trimming our tree and decking our halls with color. By the time we know it, it’ll be a brand new year filled with little blessings. In the meantime, I’ll soak up the past October festivities.
We went to a Halloween get together at the Smith house last weekend. It’s always fun going to their shindigs, especially during Halloween time. Their whole front yard is decked out with SCARY decorations! Plus, Jeanne’s pumpkin pie is to die for! *No pun intended, hehe.*
Pumpkin carving this year wasn’t as extravagant as previous years. G was on the road for a good amount of time this month, so we only carved some basic ones. At least this year, we actually got the chance to carve. Last year during Halloween time, we were way too busy.
…and as far as being creative, here’s some of the scrapbook layouts that I created in October.
First up, here’s a layout I made for my friend Ann. Yes, I “borrowed” some of her photos. This layout uses the collection Soho Garden by American Crafts. I’m not going to lie; I hoarded this collection because all of its papers are named after areas in NYC’s Soho, my favorite part of the city! You know it’s an addiction when you’re buying paper because of its name. 😉
Second layout features 5th & Frolic, also manufactured by American Crafts. I’m in love with the soft palette to this collection. Plus, there’s hints of gold incorporated into all of the products. Gold, you say? Um, yes, please!
Last but not least, my third layout is a compilation of a bunch of scraps I had out on the table in the crop room. Most of it comes from KI Memories’ latest collection, Flashback. Have you seen it?! It reminds me of the stuff they used to have on the market, so I hoarded it, haha. Aren’t surprised, huh? 😉
On another note, life has been throwing lots of curve balls my way. Fingers crossed that everything goes my way tomorrow at the clinic.
