I'm Back

We are back from Minnesota and it was a good trip although it was chilly and rainy there. My husband and I had a nice time looking around and seeing all the beautiful Minneapolis/St. Paul area. But it is sure nice to be back home. I was missing my kiddos.

Did everyone have a good labor day weekend (for the US folks) or a good regular weekend for everyone else?? We stayed around the house and swam, played and scrapped. I was behind again and needing my crafty "fix"! lol

One of the things I did was a Halloween layout for a challenge that Fia has at Sketches4you has going in her Sketch Crazy Group. This is a great Pagemaps sketch and I had good time making the layout.

I used a picture of my kids from last Halloween. How can you go wrong doing that?? ha

The pp is K&C Company Specialty paper. It is fun and bright. I used a gorgeous black Prima flower and some black Prima bling. The fun canvas embellies are from My Little Yellow Bicycle.

I went crazy with my i-rock and blinged it out a bit. I do so love bling! ha

I also used a K&C Company Spooktacular pumpkin border. I loved using my Martha Stewart branch (?) punch on the purple card stock under the photo. It adds a little spooky feel to things.

I stapled on some green ribbon from my stash to the title tag. The final thing I did was to stamp out an area for journaling and then used my Copper Stickles to make it sparkle. Every thing needs a little bit of sparkle in my opinion!

I like the final result and my kids did too.... Hope you do too!

  1. Too bad you weren't here for the weekend - it was a gorgeous weekend! What types of things did you do and see while in the Twin Cities?
