Are you ready for Halloween?? I just spent the evening sewing Harry Potter robes for my oldest and baby legs for baby girl's cat costume. We're getting there!

I'm in love with Erica Zane's new Halloween kit, Tricky! The elements in it are super spooky!

It's 30% off right now, so hurry and grab it! You can also grab the coordinating freebie on Erica's blog.

Here's the layout I made with it:
Ready to Trick or treat

I also did a couple other layouts this week. I wanted to scrap some recent photos of my baby girl.

Template Freebie!!

As promised, I've created a free template to celebrate my return to blogging! :)

But first let me show you this awesome Fall Delight bundle that LDrag Desings released this week.


I made the September page of my calendar with it and it was SO easy because I used the frame clusters and graffiti and didn't have to do any of the clustering myself! So easy.


Now, for the template freebie! I really loved how my "First Day of Kindergarten" layout turned out, so I made it into a template. Enjoy!

New Releases

Look at these gorgeous goodies that were released this past week!

LDrag Designs released this amazing Halloween kit. There are some REALLY fun elements in this one!

I used it for the calendar I'm making. Isn't that moon element awesome??

For a limited time, you can get a FREE pack of word art when you buy the kit!

Erica Zane just released this kit called Silver Lining and I just LOVE the colors!

It was perfect for scrapping about Seattle's weather. :)
