I am back!

Wow, I can not believe how long it has been since I have been on here.  Had a life changing event happen to me this past winter.  My boyfriends 15 year old daughter has come to live with us.  Let me just say she comes with a lot of problems...
I need to start spending some of my time on myself, so here I am!
Have a great Monday everyone!

December 2, 2011

Are you kidding me?  I can not believe it is December!  November just flew by!  I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!  Her at my house, we spent Thanksgiving with my boyfriends parents and daughter.  His 14 year old daughter made the best sweet potatoes!

While I was getting ready for Thanksgiving, I decided I needed a centerpiece for my table.
So, I took this plain pumpkin that I had gotten at Hobby Lobby last year...

And dressed it up a little...

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Are you looking forward to Halloween?

I am looking forward to Halloween!  Since I work at an elementary school, I get to see all the little kids dress up for school!  At night, I hand out candy from my home.  I live in a very busy neighborhood!  Kids get brought in from all over!  Here is a photo I took last year, police on horses were riding around that night!

I just finished another layout, using Lacee's Halloween embellishment kit!

These pictures were taken last Halloween!  That is my nephew, he was a spider!  Here are a couple of close ups! 

I made the flower using  a tutorial from  She has several flower tutorials.  If you have never been to her website, you are in for a treat!
