And the new Toil & Trouble collection is so fun and playful and colourful, it just puts me in the mood for tricks and treats! Making these borders was so easy and fun, I may just have to reward myself with a little Halloween candy from my secret stash…shhh!

Toil & Trouble Treat Bags

Boo!!  Can you believe it? The local stores are all set up for the trick or treaters, so I guess I need to start thinking ahead as well!  I thought I would make some special little treat bags for the young goblins that show up at my door.

The Toil and Trouble Collection is so bright!  I just love it! It’s perfect to get you thinking ahead to Halloween.

I Love This! Sugarplum Variety Mat Pack for the WIN!

I LOVE me a few mats from any variety mat pack, but especially this one.  The soft gorgeous colours of Sugarplum work fabulous for a simple 12″ x 12″ layout, not just the slide-in pages.  I used a total of 7 mats on this layout.  A few of which I cut off, and can be used on future layouts.  Just play around with them to decide which orientation you might want them, and how many photos you might have to add to your layout.

Toil & Trouble–MEOW!

Hello friends! When I first saw the Toil & Trouble collection, I smiled because it is too cute for words! And the patterns are so versatile. You can create Halloween, Kitty, or any other everyday layout using this collection!

I will admit, I immediately thought about using this collection to scrapbook my cats, not Halloween. That “meow” washi tape and adorable kitty cat stickers were just calling my name. I couldn’t help it. Let’s not even go into the fact that it has teal and black and white polka dots and triangles… Literally, I could go into all kinds of favourites with this collection.

Birthday Traditions

Hello creators! I am back with a birthday layout I created using the Sugarplum Designer Paper Pack, Designer Stickers, Variety Mat Pack, and Embellishments. Every year, no matter how old I get, my mommy makes me a birthday cake. Sometimes, we don’t get to celebrate my birthday with the family until the end of September, but that’s OK! I don’t know many people who would decline two birthday celebrations in one year. Do you? 🙂

Since Edward was a year old, he’s been helping me blow my birthday candles out. Mom has taken a picture of the two of us blowing out my birthday candles together for the past 7 years. I love this tradition… This year, Edward was really excited because he helped make the cake and he requested Oreos and pink sprinkles to decorate the cake with exactly 39 miniature Oreos.

Lost In A Digital World

A few weeks ago upon arriving home for work, I did what I normally do-check the mailbox (of course, hoping that I got that check from Ed McMahon and Publisher’s Clearing House).  It wasn’t there, but our small local newspaper was.

The Sauk Rapids Herald.

I perused it, looking at the local police happenings (small town) and outcome of our beloved “Storm” sports teams.

As I was reading there was a certain article that struck a chord with me.  I can relate to the thousands of undeveloped photographs in my phone, how about you?
