A few layouts



I really don't have anything exciting to post about. Just a few layouts that I'll be doing in some upcoming classes. I'm really starting to look forward to our yearly trip to the pumpkin patch after doing these pages. Although finding a weekend that we can go will be a big challenge. I'm pretty much booked solid for the month of October. ( I forgot to mention that the pumpkins made with circles came from the October issue of Creating Keepsakes. In the Tools & Techniques column Jennifer McGuire made the cutest little jack-o-lantern with chipboard circles. I love it so much that I'll be using it on many, many Halloween and fall pages. It seems that every time I read her column I find something that makes me say, "Well I never thought to use _____ like that!" She's awesome!)

Drew and I have been out looking for a Halloween costume here and there. We can't seem to find anything he likes because he's got his heart set on being Cruella De Ville. Yes, you read that right. Our little boy wants to be Cruella De Ville from 101 Dalmatians. I think it would be hilarious but I'm a little afraid that with a big fur coat it's going to come across more pimp than puppy snatching villain. Maybe he could carry around Jackson dressed as a Dalmatian puppy...

Allison, I love your work! I appreciate the fact you use the 4x6 size photos on many of your layouts. I lived in Springfield for 12 yrs. & Scrapbook generations was my favorite store. I always looked forward going in there knowing you kept inventory updated & current. I now live in Tulsa, but when I'm in Springfield visiting family, I always make sure I stop by the store. It is still one of my favorites. I bought your sketch book a few months ago & love it. Keep up the great work!

Wow Stacie, I lived in Springfield for a long time and now live in Tulsa too! Too cool.

Allison, so funny about the pimp vs. puppy snatcher!!! That should make for some great pictures. :) Love the LO's - the pumpkin one reminds me that I shouldn't forget about my letter stamps! I don't use them much anymore. LOoks great.

Good luck with Drew!! :D !! Totally funny. You could just let him wear tights under the fur coat and tell everyone he's a pro wrestler! lol! Have a great day!
