We survived Halloween!

How was your Halloween weekend?
Was the weather good or nasty?
We expected rain but ended up havng a perfect night
for Trick or Treating.
Typically we visit the pumpkin patch a few weeks before Halloween
but this year we waited until the last minute
We were still able to find some good pumpkins,
(and they were super cheap to boot!)
I even let the kids gut their own pumpkins.
It was quite entertaining...

Mike carved our baseball team logo into one:

Mia wanted a spider

Here are the kids in their costumes,
ready to go get some candy!

Here they are with some old witch:
All in all it was a very fun night, and I was thrilled that
there was no school the next morning.
New rule:
Halloween should be on a Saturday night from now on!

I have been scrapping a little bit
Here's a layout I did with the new Nutmeg line from Cosmo Cricket
The leaves are Prima, I altered their shapes by cutting them
They were white to begin with so I used glimmer mist to color them

Here's a fun layout I did about my blog!
A fast but sweet one that I used Basic Grey's Indian Summer on:
And lastly one with Roman
(in all his naked glory)
I used the Fancy Pants Rough & Tough papers
for this plus several Cosmo Cricket rub ons
Thanks for stopping by
Your comments bring a huge smile to my face!
