sorry the party was such a challenge for you...i never like going places for the first time either (and the military life definitely encourages getting used to that, doesn't it?)
hmm...i've never scrapped 6x12 before but it might be fun to make a nice sized mini album for gifts.
Please p-mail me your address at 2-peas or Studio Calico "vtpuggirl". I'll mail it out when I mail my parents anniversary card and some photos.
Here is the quick anniversary card I made for my parents, made with SEI poppy:
And here is a recent Studio Calico layout with the Oct kit.
I ordered these last night too. This sweater vest and shirt (on the little boy) for J for thanksgiving:
And this red sweater for Christmas:
From Hanna Andersson. J has khaki pants that will go with both shirts. I am always afraid HA's stuff will sell out before Dec, and it frequently does. So I ordered early. One thing off my holiday list. Hope you are having a good day, crossing things off your list too.

Have a great Friday my friends! Our Halloween party is tomorrow, so excited about that!

I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't an organized person in real life. I think you can tell by the straight lines of my pages that I like things, how I like them. The holidays stress me out, and I'm already behind.
It always starts with the same old things:
1. Buy and wrap some gifts.
2. Put the tree up sometime.
3. Bake something somehow, which may or may not ever get done.
That was before I had a baby 12 days before Christmas. Since then the whole thing has turned into a landslide into Christmas. I'm already behind because I haven't ordered J a holiday outfit, which means I can't take a holiday picture by Nov., and that means I can't work on Christmas cards any earlier than the end of Nov/beginning of Dec. And that's when I'll be planning the birthday party for a 2 year old. Instead of shopping, and buying Christmas gifts and wrapping them.
Which means I don't know when I'll get the dang tree up, and I'll bake something some time. And if anyone needs me I'll be hyperventilating into a gift bag . . . . and looking for a candy cane to poke my eyes out.
Instructions: Print Text via computer on background white paper. Punch border with treading water punch. Add Cosmo patterned paper and American Crafts thicker punctuation. Add tiny text on computer and add to the bottom right corner. Apply Cosmo Candy corn rub-on overtop.

Yep I love chemistry.
Especially this new release from Cosmo Cricket:
Yesterday we went to the patch. I was worried for about 1/2 hour that we had been stood up, my friend and her dd were very late. But, it went really well and J was tired after the experience. So was I too though. The pics are still on my camera. It was a rough night last night for poor J, he fell out of bed! I heard the thump and then the wail. Just awful, and I'd love to forget that awful sound. He doesn't appear to have any injury from it, and I doubt he even remembers this morning.
Just a really quick layout with the Studio Calico Oct. kit:
Happy Tuesday! And go get you some of that eye candy that is Chemistry by Cosmo. :)

Ready for the advanced portion of the program? If you want to hang the Cosmo skeleton (2 come with each blackboard set), then you will need to gerry-rig the parts. Here is how I did it. I took black thread and "connected" each part and then placed the sticker body part over it. It works, and it holds pretty well.

Supplies: Scribble Scrabble Patterned paper Autumn Afternoon and Apple Chipboard sticker "chipper" plus Kraft cardstock.
Nothing much happening today. We did some shopping yesterday. Aj got a rain jacket and a new pair of shoes. All the while trying to take his clothes off in the REI shoe dept. (this is new) Might need that rain jacket today. I hope it doesn't rain on our plans. Or yours. Happy Thursday!

Here is a quick Cosmo Cricket layout using Haunted:
Supplies: (Not a digital layout) Cosmo Cricket Haunted Nevermore Patterned paper (both sides), Cosmo Cricket Haunted Blackboard-shaped bat, Cosmo Cricket Haunted Adhesive die cut bat sticker plus Bazzil Black and White Cardstock
I know J gets his intensity from me. And perhaps his hyperactivity. I hardly ever sit down I've realized, always doing something. Funny, it doesn't stop me from getting frustrated that he won't sit still. Stubbornness also apparently runs in the family. Until tomorrow.
