Roscoe's first Pumpkin Patch

We took Roscoe to the pumpkin patch this afternoon. Because he is not used to being around people (only myslef and Juan Carlos), he was too busy smelling everything and wanting to meet and greet others that we could not get him to sit still and take descent picture.

So here they are.

While out junking yesterday, we ran into a Pumpkin Patch and decided to stop and take some pictures. There were so many parents taking pictures of their little ones.

Here are a couple that my husband took of me.

These 2 tiny ones I am holding were the ones we bought. I know why not buy a large one and carve it, nope, I did not want to deal with the flies and smell after a while. 

Our weather is nice now. Finally Sandy has gone bye bye and the rain and winds are gone.  This past week was horrible with the rain non stop for 3 days and the winds.  We are supposed to be having a cold front coming in this week Tuesday and Wednesday. I hope it stays for atleast a week or so.

Oh what fun

I am back from the Scrapbooking cruise. We have had so much fun and laughed so hard. I left on friday and got back monday morning. I scrapped all day every day until 2am. I finished 16 double page layouts that I took.

Here are some pictures I took of the crop room. Not everyone was in the room at the time because they went to the islands. I scrapped so much and was so busy that I only took these pictures the last day. I will have some photos once they are emailed to me by the store owner.

 My partner at the cruise. She is Maria Del Carmen and is 76 years old. Her husband just passed 4 months ago and I invited her to come along with me. She is the sweetest lady.
 Here is Nelly. I met her for the first time and she was so sweet and nice. Very down to earth. All the ladies were very sweet and welcoming. It was my first time and Maria Del Carmen's as well. They all knew each other from the store, but they welcomed us and made us feel at home immediately.
Behind Nelly in this picture is Rachel and her mom. I had so much fun with Rachel. We laughed so hard and had a great time. Our table was with 8 ladies and they were all super duper nice.
Here is Judy, hard at play. Concentrating on the project she was working on. Behind her is Jacky. Very sweet lady and very nice to us.

I want to Thank Rhonda from Scrapbookining Depot for inviting me and welcoming me and Maria Del Carmen as well. Loved everything and every moment we spent on the cruise. The space we had was amazingly large and no one bumping in to anyone. Great room we had and space. Overall it was a perfect crop and nice get away from the daily routine one has. I did miss my husband, so much that if I could have I would have swam home. But would not trade this trip for anything. If anyone of you live in Florida, you should consider to take this trip.

I am looking forward to next years crop again.

Halloween decorations

Hello my blogging friends. I am back with my Halloween decorations around my home. This year I am not going all out. I have many things that I did not bring out. I did not want the dining room to have the plate settings with the brains, livers and opens skulls this year. I just wanted to display my nicer things.

Here are the pictures of things around the house.


 Kitchen area.
 Love this Frankenstein. He was a great buy at a garage sale last year.

 Notice the hand coming out of the box. Look at her bling on her finger.

 Purchased this bird dressed up last year at cracker barrel.

 Here is another one of the chains I bought on ebay. Super cute skeleton head.

 The lantern here lights up. I bought this at a garage sale a few months ago for a full $2.00. It was brand new in the box. I actually opened the box.

 This chair is in my husbands office. Actually, I call it the time out chair. When the American Express comes in I always get in trouble for charging so much. I agree with him every month that I am a shopaholic, but what woman isn't. LOL. Don't you just love the sexy pillow I bought for the chair?

 Love this pins cushion I made last year. I made the stick pins this year. So much fun to make.
 This is the configuration box I altered a couple of months ago. Notice the rat on the books. The owl has a light inside. My husband did that.
 Notice the 2 chains hanging from his neck. I found them on ebay.
 These are my new addition. I bought them at Tuesday Morning for 24.99 each. I love them. They are my favorite.
This is also a new witch. It was a gift from a scrappy friend.

Thank you all for stopping by and Happy Hauntings to you all. I mean that in a good way.

Been MIA

I have been MIA busy like the bees. Sorry for not posting lately. I have been busy with the house chores and decorating for Halloween. I can't believe the year will soon be over. I can't believe the stores are already selling Christmas stuff.  My husband says that by Thanksgiving they will have the 4th of July stuff out. LOL. I will be doing another post soon on the decorations of my home.

I wanted to share with you all a tag mini I made for a girl on youtube Luisa Diaz. We met 2 weeks ago when she asked if followers of another youtuber wanted to make a 6x6 scrapbooking page. She had surgery and we all wanted to pitch in and make something nice for her. After telling her that I would definitely make one, we kept communicating and decided to swap. She will be making a fall tag mini for me and I made her a Halloween mini.

Here are the pictures.

 This is the front of the cigar box I altered.
 Look at the witches legs sticking out of the ground. Cute.
 This is the inside of the box, top lid.
 Here is the mini all wrapped in a tulle bow to hold it together.
 Isn't this the cutest idea with the hand. Love it. Got the idea from a girl on youtube.

Each tag has a space has either another tag or 2 for pictures and journaling. 

Hope you all are having a great wednesday. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog and don't forget to leave a comment.
