Layout Requests

I have had a couple of layout requests that I've been working on the last couple of days and thought I'd share them with you.
I like working on Christmas in September. :o)

This one is for Judy and her little cuties Allie & Oscar. She has a whole "doggie amusement park" in her backyard for them. She hopes that this time next year Oscar will be competing!

Louisburg Cider Mill

So we took a journey to the Louisburg Cider Mill today. Boy are we pooped! Nothing like going through a 10 acre corn maze to make ya feel older than old! It didn't help that it was soooo hot. We did get some freshly made apple cider and apple cider doughnuts, homemade icecream (though it tasted nothing like my grandma's), and some of their bottles soda. I got cream soda and Jake got black cherry. Kenton had a Dr. Pepper in the truck, so he opted to wait. He's gotta have his DP! Anyway, we took a few pictures, but we were happy to get back to the truck and the AC. Bad, I know!

New Look

I wasn't diggin' the last template that I was using, so I went out and found one that I liked. I'm not sure if I will keep this one for a long period of time since I'm not crazy about the very top part and how it hangs down over the last post. But...it's better than it was! I've also added some music that I like. You can scroll down and change the songs if you want to. You'll see how eclectic my music tastes are. I can't help it...I like a little of everything! I hope you enjoy the new look!

So I'm a little ancy for Halloween to arrive. I made this super cute...errr...spooky haunted house paper piecing as part of a 2 page premade layout. I love the way it turned out. It definately took me a while. When I started it I didn't have shingles or siding, just the solid pieces and it looked a little "flat". After adding the shingles I wanted it to look like it was old and not well taken care of so I sanded the shingles to make it look like the roof hadn't been replaced in many, many years...almost like mine before the hail made us get it replaced. :o) I also made the ghost, bats and pumpkins. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of it. I love it!

Fall...My favorite season!

My favorite season by far. I wait all year for it come around again...leaves changing colors, football, pumpkin patches, warm apple cider, sweaters, Halloween.

This is a layout I made for one of the groups I'm on for the September Master's. If you need a home on the web to share tips and scrapbook supplies, have great challenges and swaps and meet some great women, join us at Scrapbook Place. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ScrapbookPlace/

I hope you're enjoying fall so far!

My First Blog Session!

So here I am in all my glory blogging for the first time. Bear with me...it's a learning process.

I'd like to give a quick shout to Nina from Purple Faerie Paper Crafts for nudging me into getting my own blog. She has a great blog with all kinds of amazing projects and swaps that can be found at http://www.purplefaeriepc.blogspot.com/.

I have recently gotten into creating tear bears and other animals. They make me smile. :o) There are so many different ways to dress them up I feel like I'm playing with those paper dolls you could dress up that I had when I was a little girl. I have yet to try a boy one, but in time I'm sure I will. I think my favorite so far is the "Fall Fairy". Let me know what you think!
