Zombie Cupcakes and Halloween

My li'l guy wanted so badly to be a puppy for Halloween. My mom was so nice to fix this old costume that Jakob and Aaron wore years ago.

We had a preschool party to attend and luckily Travis was home to decorate some awesome zombie cupcakes. I think they turned out pretty great and they're yummy too.

Here's my pound puppy and his best friend the cheetah!

Pumpkin Pals Scrapbook Steals Coral #4

While going through pictures I came across this sweet one of Tess and her bestie, Rachel, at the pumpkin patch. I used my Sassafras kit I just picked up from the warehouse last weekend during the retreat. I know people say they have a hard time working with their papers but I adore them.

Happy to have a brand new Signo white gel pen to write with! No skipping. I love them.

Now, if anyone can tell me where to find Mr. Huey's in white I'd be in heaven because my homemade concoction just isn't doing the trick. I had to fill in most of these droplets with my pen.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Kids get today off for fall break and we're pounding T-posts to fence in our property.
Stay crafty my friends.

Life and Lunch

I try to send my kiddos to school with healthful lunches. Homemade items or fun little cheese shapes...I don't want them to get bored of getting a "sack" lunch. I sent hummus with pita chips yesterday as a side and my kids came home complaining that all of their classmates were "grossed out"...told them it "looked disgusting" and all kinds of other negative comments. I feel bad for my kids being made fun of but I feel even worse for the kids that are missing out on great food!
My second grader did say that a few of his classmates tried it and said "yum". I guess beyond second grade you get less adventurous.
Maybe I'll send them with home made sushi next week! Hah

Chevron Banner- Who doesn't love that?

My friend Charity let us know that Practical Scrappers was doing a feature on banners and garlands.
I became the proud owner of some new Studio Calico Mr. Huey's at the Scrapbook Steals retreat and went to town on this card. It's really a hodge podge of MME elements and washi with spray ink ;)
Hope you're all well. I need to get back into the swing of things and
don't worry.
I did not forget about the winner of my Sweet Stamp Shop give away.
Will be posting soon.
