Halloween Tray 002 copy

OK maybe it's a frog on there, but that wouldn't be as cute in the blog title.

My downline and I got together today (we missed all of you that could not come) and we made our Halloween Tray Decor, and they are so cute.  I can hardly wait till my class this Saturday and Monday. I still have a few seats left, but you have to tell me NOW so I can get the supplies really right NOW...oh I just got an email, was that YOU?

I had to find a picture to put on mine. When Eric was the age for Trick or Treating we didn't have a computer and we didn't have a digital camera so everything is actual pictures in a box, or heaven forbid when I first started to scrapbook and I cut everyone out like around heads and everything...yeah try to fix that picture.  I told Eric I was looking for a Halloween picture and just like his generation he said "look online", I said a picture of him younger won't be online. So I found this one but had to blow it up quite a bit, but it still turned out pretty good. Jeff was a dead cowboy...with an arrow through the head and everything. I am not sure what Eric was, like a warrior or maybe he was a ninja turtle.

Another month is almost over, can you believe it?  So make sure if you wanted any free ribbon, or a chance at winning this month's free stamp set, you order soon cause you only have until September 30.

This post will be quick as I have my downline coming tomorrow to make their Halloween trays, this is for any of the girls that earned them as well as their new recruit, I can't wait to meet the new girl.  If you are interested in coming to my Halloween Tray class let me know today.

Here is another card from my 10/10/25 Christmas card class, it is fun and quick. When you are doing 10 different cards at class I have learned that is the secret to being done in time. I love this set, the deer is so beautiful.

So thanks to Tammy (hey girlie) I finally updated the girls egg laying count, I can't believe it had been 4 months since I had done it.  Lately with the new feed recipe (they love it!) and the cooler temperatures, we are getting 1 - 3 eggs a day, and my sweet Fiji is now laying every day. Yay!!!

Here are three I collected the other day. Fiji's is the smaller one on the right.  I believe Alice is the lighter one and Stella or Clara is the darker one.

Well like I said a quick post.

Have an awesome Saturday and thanks for stopping in.

Did you watch Grey's Anatomy? Well if you didn't don't read fact I will put it in a different color writing so you can skip it and I will scroll a bit...





I had a feeling that Mark was going to die but it was still so sad, but I wish that it had of shown Lexie waiting for him or something, and I kinda thought that Arizona was not dead and she had lost a leg, but didn't think that her and Torres would be fighting. I can't wait till next week when we see what really happened when the season ended...ok will scroll some more...




...there I hope I didn't ruin it for you. I think I missed Survivor, what day is it on? This is a new thing for me to watch and I was thinking tonight was Thursday already...huh?

I wanted to show you another card from my 10/10/25 Christmas card class, this was cased and tweaked from Dawn Olchefske, thanks Dawn. She used ribbon on hers and I used DSP, this might be my Christmas card, it was so cute and easy and it uses up DSP.  Just make sure when you are running the framelits through that they do not overlap or you will ruin them.  You can hold them in place with a post it note, but I just made sure to really hold the clear plates tight so they could not move and I ran it through slow so I could make sure they were staying in place. For class I did this ahead of time, just in case.

Stamp Set: More Merry Messages

Two of my shows tonight had people from True Blood on it. First was Two and a Half Men, that girl that Walden brought home played a wolf last season, and then on Grey's one of the new nurses was on True Blood this season, she is also the little girl from Waterworld. Oh and what is up with Ashton Kutcher's hair cut, it was like they put a bowl on his head and cut around it...very odd.

Ok I better get off here. Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.

I had to get my emmissions done on my Nitro today and wow either I have never taken it before or things have changed cause it was so fast, the guy just plugged something somewhere into the truck inside and it read the computer, and lickety split I was done. No more having your tires spinning on those rollers.

Then I ran over to Sam's Club since it was really close. So I didn't get tons of work done today, plus when Jeff got home he wanted to watch The Avengers, and I did too. It is such a great movie and we were even lucky enough to have Eric watch it with us. Usually he doesn't want to hang out with his old parents.

Tonight I was glad to see some of my favorites are back on. Modern Family is a hoot, and I guess we won't have to watch a whole season of Gloria being pregnant eh?

I also watched The Neighbors, hmmm....not too sure on that one, although I laughed out loud a few times.  I can hardly wait for Sunday night for Once Upon a Time, Revenge and even that new 666 Park Ave or something starts. That might be good.

Here's another card we did at my 10/10/25 Christmas card class.  I saw this card by Judy Sparks and just loved it. Thanks Judy.

 OMG! I am so enjoying the comments everyone is posting from my question from yesterday, keep them coming, and again I am amazed at how small a world it is, make sure you read them.

I wanted to show you the card I did for my friend Robin Merriman's GoDiva swap, we were to do Christmas or winter and I used the skates cause Robin's daughter is a figure skater, plus I love to color and I loved the vintage look by coloring lightly on the Crumb Cake cardstock. The new Holiday Frame embossing folder is perfect to make the skates stand out.

Well this old gal is off to bed, I took a cold pill last night, slept through the alarm and woke up at 7:30 to race into Eric's room to see he was still sleeping (usually he is up and showered by the time I get up at 7:00) and his ride was out front, so the day started out nuts.

Have an awesome hump day Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.

P.S. You only have a couple days left for your chance to win the stamp set of the month.
