Gearing up for the holidays

It has been far too long,
How are all of you in blogland?
Things have been quite busy on my end
I can't believe November is half over!
I am looking forward to Thanksgiving and all
the yummy food that goes with it...
We had a great Halloween
The kids decided to dress up in a Toy Story theme:
I tried my first "fancy" pumpkin carve using a linoleum
cutter and an assortment of pottery tools.
Introducing Hamm!Here I am with the kiddos
(including baby #4!)

Since it has been so long since I last posted...
Here is a class I taught in October
using the awesome "Halloween in Wonderland" line by Graphic 45

I haven't done a lot of scrapping lately but here is one of my recent favorites

Crate Paper's Restoration line is definitely one of my favorite CHA releases!
It's tough to tell in the photo but I used Tim Holtz
distress crackle paint in "Shabby Shutters" on the word "BEAUTY"

Roman celebrated his 5th birthday and here is a fun page I made

I used October Afternoon's "Seaside" papers and also
some fun little kraft tags from Maya Road
Can't forget the Maya mist!
(I used fern and blueberry on this)

On November 30th I will be teaching another installment of the Bored Housewives...
"Tinsel Time"!
I designed this class with Cosmo Cricket's "Mitten Weather" line
I just love the colors, especially the lavender
I am offering 2 classes:
one at 10:30 AM, the other at 6:30 PM
Call (816) 228-4944 to sign up!

Here are a few closer shots
