Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, everyone! We've had a lot of chilren tonight - I think we've hit a record (we've kept count. At 167 right now, and the night's not finished). We even rat out of candy and I had to send Josh to the store for more.

Now, to switch seasons, here's a layout that I completed using the sketch by Paper Poppy Kit Co.. I just realised while loading the picture that I forgot a title. Who does that?! I'll add one here this week, and maybe I'll post it later (again)

Man's Best Friend

I've had these Jolees's stickers for about 4 years now, and I really didn't think I'd ever use them - they're not really my style. But, they just went so well this photo of Josh and Brodie (and it's probably a good 4 years old as well), that I thought I'd give 'em a go!

Colors inspired by the challenge at The Paper Variety, and the

"My Guy" song challenge at Scrap it with a Song

Brodie's birthday was near the end of September, and since he was turning 10, I just had to have a birthday BBQ! We had a bunch of people over (and a lot of food), and he even received a few gifts! He also received a pup-pie, a little doggie birthday cake. He must've just loved that thing, because he devoured it!

Technical difficulties..

As some of you may know, I've been having computer problems since July (yes, July). And since I was on a couple of design teams (up until Firday - so sad my terms are done), I wasn't able to part with my computer for an extended period of time, so I had it on safe mode for a LONG time (hence, the oddly shaped photos, LOL).

Anyways, I totally fixed it with the Prevx blackscreen fix - for a whole week, and then it died on me again. Now, it's kind of working, but I'm without a desktop again and unable to download/upload anything. Just wanted to let ya'll know that I haven't forgot about you!

And, just for reading through my little technical difficulties blurb, I wanted to let you know that Studio Calico has a brand new blog! Check it out. They're giving away a bunch of goodies, and let them know that Brittney A sent you for a chance to win.

Thanks, loves!
