Happy Halloweenie!

Yes, I dressed up for Hallowe'en last year .... but it was for a good cause. Staff dressed up management at the office and we had to panhandle around the office (and in the commercial areas of the building) for United Way donations. My staff dressed me up as a nun, lol ... the whole thing was a bit embarrasing, but we collected over $1,100 for charity!

No Hallowe'en costume for me this year, though I intend to slip on my witch earrings later today. The boy has a hockey game at 5:30 pm (who schedules a hockey game on Hallowe'en night?) so the husband will be on his own with the ghosts and goblins (and dog who barks whenever the doorbell rings) for a while. Wish him good luck!

Happy Hallowe'en, y'all!

More Layouts...

Busy bee as usual. TGIF is all I can say. Hoping I can grab some scrap time this weekend ... otherwise I will soon run out of new layouts to share with you!

Happy weekend, everyone....

PS: Barb - do you recognize any elements on that first layout? Think back, waaaay back, to our Creative Scrapbooks days and a Winter Swap we both participated in ... yup, the frame and title tag are courtesy of you!

Good Doggie!

Well I did find time to scrap last weekend, both during my alone time on Friday and a bit on Thanksgiving Monday too. We had a great time on Saturday at the hunt camp with our friends, and I got my fill of special treats like stuffing and pecan pie ... yum.

While I found time to scrap, though, I found absolutely no time to scan a few layouts and share them here. So the one above will need to do for now - I managed to scan it this morning between making lunches, waking up the boy and waking up the dog...! Hopefully, I will find some time to scan the rest and share soon. The scan doesn't do it justice, btw, the patterned paper is much brighter in real life and the yellow matches the flower much better.

Have a great week, everyone!

Remember Me?

I know, I know. Bad, bad blogger. I sit here at the computer, my head hung low, feeling really badly that I haven't updated the blog in almost 20 days. Yikes, where does the time go?

Let's see, what's been going on the last three weeks ... hmnnnn ... well, we had a 3 year memorial mass for my father in law. Also, my poor husband has been so sick (it got bad enough at one point that I thought he had the H1N1 flu). Sinus infection, non-stop cough ... it's been rough going around here. The girl and I both caught it, have both been fighting it for a while. I am fighting it rather unsuccessfully these days; it seems to have settled in my inner ear, turning me into a dizzy blonde. I went to the clinic today, but my ears aren't infected. According to the doctor, sometimes vertigo settles in during a cold and sticks around for a while. Oh joy.

The boy went to Toronto for We Day and had a blast. That same weekend, the husband and I (and the dog of course) went for an overnight stay at the trailer. That was lots of fun; I truly can't wait til next summer! The boy has started hockey, and it looks like it will be a good season this year ... coach-wise, team-wise, and hockey parents-wise. Oooh, and the boy and I went to the Senators' home opener last night. Have I ever mentioned how much I love hockey? Man, it was great to be there again. And the cherry on top - they won.

The husband and the boy are at the trailer tonight; I stayed in town because I'm cooking up a storm for our traditional hunt camp Thanksgiving tomorrow. The girl has gone to a friend's house for the evening ... do you realize what this means? I am HOME ALONE. No dog. No husband. No boy. No girl. Just me and my SCRAPPING SUPPLIES! Yes my friends, finally, a scrap night for me! Now don't get me wrong, I love my family to pieces, but woo-hoo, sccrrraaaaapppp nighttttttt!!!. Hopefully I'll get a few pages done while I cook, and with any luck, I may post again tomorrow morning to show you some layouts!
