October Wrap Up and Here Comes November...

Is it me or did last month seriously fly by? Last week was a frenzy of stitching wings, making goody bags, glittering shoes and generally getting ready for the BIG day. Little Miss had a parade and trick or treat at her school so Little Man and I joined her. He had fun keeping up with the big kids dancing around the dance carpet. During the trick or treat portion, they each collected a sack full of  healthy snacks.

Then on Saturday we went over to our friends' house and joined up with some other little ones for pizza, goody bags and trick or treating. This was the first year mine went trick or treating, but they got the hang of it... FAST. After every house they would tell us, "I got more candy!!" like they had done something miraculous.

The other big news from this weekend is that everyone was promoted to a new bed. Little Miss had seriously outgrown her toddler bed, so we bought her a new twin from IKEA. She picked out her very own bedding at Target.

Once her new bed was put together we then promoted Little Man to her old bed.

So no more crib in our house! Everyone did great for Sunday nap and bed time. I had no idea it would throw me for a bit of a loop. I just cant get over how big they are getting.

To keep my mind off of that, I have been plenty busy creating :) First up is the new Scrap Tiffany challenge which was to use Lace. I used a wide piece of Fancy Pants lace as border.  Check out the other designers fabulous lace designs at ScrapTiffany. Take the challenge and email it to Tiffany for an opportunity to be the ScrapTiffany guest designer next month.

And, the November Color Me Daisy kit, November Bliss is now available. The colors are rich, yet muted, with browns, kraft, orange and hints of blue. It includes lots of My Little Yellow Bicycle and some awesome details like chipbaord houses and ruffled velvet trim by Maya Road. I have 3 layouts and 2 cards already done, and you know what? I have plenty left to make more.

This first layout is my favorite. When we were taking our post pumpkin patch pictures in the backyard, Little Miss ran in to get her own camera and I got some cute ones of her taking pictures.

This one has hidden journaling, but basically tells the story of the pumpkin patch/camera card debacle from the last post.

And finally, this one is an answer to the demands for posed pictures with clean kids. :)

Whenever I make cards, I always make at least one thank you, because we have friends and family constantly doing nice things for us. Here are two I made with the kit.

So I guess that wraps up October, and here we are in the race to get to Thanksgiving and get everything done so that we can turn around and cruise through to Christmas without having a nervous breakdown. I do love the holiday season, but it stresses me out big time. Hope your week is smooth and stress-free.
