Caramel Apple time!

Our favorite apples are HoneyCrisp apples.
They are seasonal and when they are available we eat them like crazy!
I have been promising the kids that we would make some caramel apples with them
Talk about delicious!

the finished product:

patiently waiting for them to cool
Watching Koby eat his caramel apple with no front teeth was quite entertaining, I must say :)

I have been scrapping lately
(No, really?)
Here's a fun layout I made with Roman on his 4th birthday
I just can't use this Monstrosity paper enough, it is SO dang cute!
I also used several Jenni Bowlin things, LOVE her!
Here's a baseball layout with Mr Koby
The little baseball player in the left corner is glimmer misted
(I used my Cosmo Cricket negative chipboard as a mask)
Here's a quick Halloween layout I did using Inspired Blueprints Sketch #32
I just love their sketches!
I typically try to create my layouts on my own but it is SO nice to work off a sketch, make a cute layout and be done with it!
The papers I used are My Mind's Eye

Another quick layout on Coredinations cardstock with a little Pink Paislee, Basic Grey & Cosmo Cricket.
I love the way this next layout turned out, and it only took me about 30 minutes!
The bingo card is Tattered Angels and of course I used Glimmer Mist on it
I used a Pink Paislee Pixie Stix glitter for the word SPOOKY and then heated it with my heat gun to take the super shiny glitter look off it (it looks more distressed now)
The background paper is Basic Grey, don't you love those spider webs?
The cute little ghostie stickers are Making Memories, I picked them up at Archiver's for 99 cents! And that was full price! How can you go wrong with that?

I am working on completing a Christmas album with the new Pink Paislee
"Mistletoe & Co" papers, you guys are going to love it!
I'm working with alcohol inks with it and the effect is amazing
I promise to post pics once it's finished!
Another fun project I am starting is a December Daily album (a la Ali Edwards!)
My friend, Tina and I are going to do this together and I am SO excited!
What a wonderful way to document your Christmas traditions over the years!
Ah, so many projects, so little time!
As I like to say, I am "Tortured by Art" LOL
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
Take time to appreciate the little things, they really are the BIG things.
