Happy Fall!

I would like to start out by wishing my Mom the Happiest Birthday EVER!! Love you Mom and hope you are having a wonderful birthday!! xoxox!!

Okay now back to business...

It has been brought to my attention that at least one of the class projects is not on my blog. So, for anyone who ordered a kit for the "Babies are a Blessing" class, here is the class sample:

If there are any others you would like to see that are not currently on my blog, please leave me a message and I'd be more than happy to do that.

In other news...

Last Friday we had a Halloween crop at the Shoppe. There were alot of people who decided to dress up this time, so it was tons of fun! I decided to embrace my quirky sense of humour this year and go as...are you ready for this? "Meals on Wheels"! LOL Here is a picture for your viewing pleasure (or a good laugh...whichever may be the case). A huge thanks to both Cheryl and Bob for their contribution to my costume.

I also made up a complete Halloween menu. I went around taking "orders" and served the customers a little diecut on each plate (to be later used for their Halloween scrapbook pages). It was a lot of fun.

Here is a picture of my taking my friend Kay's order...doesn't she make the cutest witch?? The tulle around her hat had spiders on it!

Daisy Duck, a Joker and a Witch all made an appearance. But I think one of my personal favorites were the costumes my friends Janice and Theresa wore. The came as a pair..."Sick & Tired". Theresa spent a good portion of the night with a thermometer in the corner of her mouth and giving out "pills" to everyone who would like some. It was pee in your pants hilarious! The "pills" were all kinds of great candy like peppermints, M&Ms...all kinds of good stuff. So, we were all too happy to take that kind of medicine! ;o)

And with all that excitement going on last week, I still managed to get a couple of sample pages done for the store. Please note: These are not upcoming classes, but rather pages that are featured at the store to give you a bit of inspiration on how to use some of the papers for sale.

I used some cute Pumpkin paper that Cheryl had at the store to make both of these layouts. For the fall page, I used the actual paper. For the "Pirate Princess", I used the pumpkin paper only as a template for the carriage. So, one piece of paper served two totally different purposes.

One other thing before I sign off for now....keep checking back because soon the next Sesame Street class project will be posted here. This time the character of the month will be none other than ELMO!!

Have a great day everybody!!
