More Halloween Costumes...
I could not just share my daughter's costume with everyone, These are my BOYS...
MAC(right) & MYLES(left)
The boys had to be something scary & gory!!
Mac is Jason from Friday 13th
Myles is The Grim Reaper
A few weekend's ago we rented some scary movies, like Friday 13th & Night Mare on Elm Street! Well the kids were not IMPRESSED OR SCARED!!
It has been a while since Jason & I had seen these movies....
and boy are they CHEESY!! They used to scare me to death and I had nightmares back in the DAY.... I guess with technology, movies today are cooler then what we grew up with! I feel SO OLD at 33......

Halloween Costumes!!!
This is my beautiful daughter Madeline she is 11 going on 25!! She is dressed as a Dark Fairy!!
My Mother made this costume with Madeline's assistance. My mom is so talented, I can't even get the sewing machine threaded!! I guess Maddy will get the sewing bug, I guess it skips a generation. My sister Abigail is a fashion designer in LA, she is an awesome designer!!
So I guess we are all crafty in our own way!!

Bud Basics & Cutie Pie!!
I love my Bud Basics stamp set, I was so happy and surprised to see it in the SU catalog!
It was originally in one of the Mini Catalogs, I think spring or winter of 2006.
I made this cute 3 x 3 card using Rose Red! I also used DSPaper Cuitie Pie, which is so awesome! The first time I saw cards using the DSPpaper Cutie Pie, I thought that is so cute but it's not Stampin' Up! so I would never use it. Boy was I is SU paper!!! Yeah, now I can't stop using it!!!
I also LOVE altering anything that can be altered. I save all my kool aid & pringles containers, my MOM said I have a serious addiction and I need help! When we were packing my stamp room when we moved she could not believe all the STUFF I had been collecting! She marked all the boxes "Missy's ADDICTION"
I got this big paper clip at Michael's! I got a package of 2 for $3.99
Thanks for visiting & Enjoy my CUTE Creations!

So Kind....
I LOVE this card!!!
Well I made this card and was not sure if I really liked it! But the more I looked at it the more I LOVED the card!! Groovy Guava is one of my favorite New In-Colors!
I saw this card sketch on SCS and thought I would give it a try. Priceless is another of my favorite New SU Stamp sets! Oh I hope this stamp set does not retire, at least not for a while!! I am having so much fun cutting out those cute butterflies!!
Every time I open my Stampin' Up! Catalog, I just fall in love all over again! It seems like we just launched this catalog and in 2 months we will have a NEW Catalog!! It makes me a little sad to think of this catalog ending and I know that some of these stamp sets will have to retire to make room for NEW stamp sets!!
Am I the ONLY one that feels this way?
Well anyways I hope you will enjoy this CUTE card!!

Bloggers Challenge....
Better Late then Never!!
This weeks challenge was to make an ornament! Boy was this hard for me, my stuff is still in boxes but I happened to find my cold play stamp set and came up with this cute ornament!!
My kids and always try to make Christmas ornaments for the tree every year. One year my sister decided she wanted a Barbie Christmas Tree so we decorated the tree with barbies! My kids were little at the time and my son Myles was not even part of our family yet. Madeline was 3 & Mac was almost 2. They LOVED it!!! We did the whole tree in Pink & Silver with barbie dolls as our ornaments. Well my sister Abigail is very creative and went on to college to be a fashion designer, she now lives in L.A.! I hope you will enjoy my ornaments I made!!!
Blog Candy Winner!!

Bloggers Challenge
This weeks challenge was to use orange & black. I made this Criss Cross Card using Pumpkin Pie & Black Card Stock! I felt really sad that I don't have any Halloween Stampin' Up! Paper, so I had to use some Contraband Paper I had. I can't tell you the maker because I don't remember. I bought it so long ago. I only buy Stampin' Up! products now. I just love everything in our catalog! This Cris Cross Card was fun to make and I will have to make some Holiday Cards too!! I love Halloween and can't wait for my order to arrive. I am going to be making cards with each of my kids classes for Halloween!! I do this every year and they just love it. I spend an afternoon making 2 cards and I also bring treats like cookies and juice!! This will be my first year making cards with my son Myles, he's in 2nd grade this year. Last year I just brought treats for the kids. I think this year the 2nd graders are ready to make "EASY" cards!!
Do you want....BLOG CANDY??
Do you make cards with your kids classes too?
Leave me comment and share your ideas, I will pick a name on Wednesday 10-10
The winner gets my Halloween Criss Cross Card and a spool of Halloween ribbon!!!
