Playing in the leaves

Seth and Stella came to play on Tuesday last week. Stella is beginning to walk and is saying a few things. She says E I E I O and she claps her hands and says "yay!" We played outside in the leaves. Seth thought it was great fun to rake, so I let him. Of course, I took pictures.

The end of an era

I have decided to step down from my Design Team coordinator position at Memorable Seasons. It's been two years now and I have loved every minute. However, I seem to not have as much time to devote to it as the site gets better and bigger and my life gets crazier. Who would have thought this grandma would be busier now than when my kids were still living at home? How in the world did I do it? With that said, here are my last Design team kit projects. Our November 1 reveal was sponsored by Jillibean Soup. They have the most fabulous kraft paper designs and one of my favorite scrapbook supplies, the Jillibean sprouts. Are you ready for some Christmas? If not, I'm sorry but I will get back to Halloween stuff in a day or two.
 Found these at a garage sale down the street. I got 8 of them for $2 thinking I could alter them somehow. Here are the first three projects using them.
I created the next project using a dollar store frame and a flower cut from old dictionary pages and tissue paper misted with Glimmer mist. It is kind of subtle but I rubbed some Tim Holtz antique linen ink around the edges of the snowflake paper.

This is an empty matchbox that I put a miniature candy bar into. It would be a cute stocking stuffer or a cute gift for your co workers.

and of course, I made a layout and some cards.

I will miss the free stuff I got for being DT Coordinator (haha) but I am looking forward to actually scrapping less and using just what I like. See you around, bloggers.
