Well hopefully everyone had a wonderfully spooky Halloween. My little pirate and monster sure did! My oldest son had a Halloween party in his kindergarten class this past Friday and was asked to bring in some treats. So we bought some fun Halloween cookies and I made some quick and festive tags to go with them. I got to use a few stamps from one of my newer stamps 'spellbound' that came out in the current CTMH catalogue. The colours I used were black, orange, sunny yellow, and citrus leaf, (colour inspiration from Jeanette Lynton's blog).

50th Birthday Guestbook

My mom had her 50th birthday on October 3. My Dad, my sisters and I planned a party for her. I wanted her to have a nice guestbook, but since I am a scrapbooker it of course needed to be a photo guestbook. Rather then just having regular portraits of the guests I thought we could get some wigs of the 60/70's more popular hair styles to spice up the pictures.
I got an 8x8 album from Micheals for the guestbook. For paper I used the boom-di-ada creative basics paper and magic moments paper pack. The featured colours are hollyhock, sweetleaf, colonial white, indian corn blue and cocoa.
Sorry for the picture quality, I had a terrible time with the lighting.

Wow, it has been a long time since I updated! Life has been so busy these last few months. My oldest son started JK and he is not enjoying it so far, I had my Mom's 50th birthday party to plan, Thanksgiving and the list goes on.

I have hardly gotten any scrapbooking done since the beginning of September. This is one of the few things I have done. I did do a batch of Christmas cards that I donated to a raffle but I forgot to photograph them before giving them away. I needed to whip up a quick card for a birthday and this is what I was able to produce in the 20 minutes before the party started!
