Speed Scrap Anyone?


I love Speed Scraps, probably because I am such a slow scrapper and they force me to make a decision and stick with it. Usually, I love my SS pages and I can't believe that I can actually scrap that quickly. The prompts do help, but each SS takes on a life of it's own. Here are a few of my recent SS pages



I used the Endearing series by Dancing Princess Designs
for the above page. Tons of goodies in the collection, and I dont have to think about trying to coordinate anything. It is already done for me.
My favorite were the glossy plastic styles -- I just love the flexibility
and ease of using styles, and being able to add some fun touches,
quickly!





I made this next SS page tonight at a Speed Scrap hosted by
Val of geniaBeana Designs. I have been waiting to scrap
with the Hoo's My Girl Collab (Little Miss loves owls!)
by geniaBeana Designs and Kimi's Creations!

Pumpkin Patch


Little Miss was so excited to go to her very first field trip with school.
The wagon ride to the pumpkin patch was a hit, with scarecrows scattered all along the way. We were allowed to pick any pumpkin, as long as we could carry it. Our first pumpkin was a little white one. Our second was an orange one, a bit bigger. When we got back to the wagon, others had massive pumpkins, I felt like I should have let her pick a big one, but I had no idea they were going to drop us off in the parking lot to bring the pumpkins to the car. Live and Learn. Evenso, the farm was a hit.

October is well underway and Halloween is fast approaching.
We have finally narrowed down our costume search between
two outfits. But Little Miss sure has had fun trying on the
masks, wigs, outfits and assorted trick or treat bags

The Spookalicous Collab at Digiscrapaganza has been
perfect for our fall activities
