Trick Or Treat

This is my niece Becky. I cut the genie, bottle and spider from the Paper Doll cart at 4". The "Trick or Treat" is cut from Plantin Schoolbook at 2" with the End Cap quote feature. My mother made her this costume and Becky was so funny wearing it. She would try and pull down the top and pull up the pants to cover her belly. I of course remind her of that when she is now running around "half naked" as teen girls do these days.

Clowin' Around 4 Candy

This is the first Halloween my niece Becky dressed up for. She is 18 months old. I used Paper Doll Cart for the clown and the pumpkin "buckets". The clown is cut at 4". I cut the clown outfit out in white then had colored it to match her clown suit. The pumpkin buckets are cut from the pumpkin on the Accessories 3 Costume key with the stem and vines cut off and I free hand cut the handle.
The "Clownin' Around 4 Candy" is cut form Plaintin Schoolbook using the roly poly feature which I think it the perfect font for this.

My Front Door Decorated for Halloween

I used the Paper Doll Cart for this. They are cut out at 11", the pumpkin is cut "fit to page".
Mickey and Minnie are cut from Mickey and Friends.

Halloween Centerpiece

I used my Paper Doll Cart for this. They are cut out at 6". " Trick or Treat" is Plantin School book cut at 2" with the end cap quote feature.

Birthday Card for Alli

I used my Paper Doll cart for this card. The packages are from New arrival.

Cherish Everyday

I just recently had a friend die unexpectedly. It made me remember why I scrapbook. To keep the memories for my family, especially my kids. I am working my my youngest son's scrapbook for his graduation party. Marti was my secret sister from the Cricut MB. In her last package she sent me these beautiful BIG Primas. I am a collector of "pretty" things, my pretty paper, my pretty primas, ect. Well after losing Marti I realized that I need to use my pretty stuff. I also realized that I need to also scrap what is important to my children and that is me. I don't like having my picture so I am usually the one taking the pics. I know now that I need to let them take the pics too. When my boys were little we visited DC and each boy had their own camera. When I developed Ben's pics I saw how he saw DC. It had the floor of the sub way station, the knees of his brother. We need to remember it is not how we wee ourselves it is how they see us.

I did this LO in honor of Marti and I am going to do the opposite page of a current pic. Font is Jasmine.
