Well, it is the day before Halloween and I am trying to restrain myself! My mom and my husband know what I mean! I just LOVE Halloween and I decorate more than Christmas for this holiday, but this year I am trying to keep it simple and take it easy. I am feeling anxious today though and contemplating dragging more from storage for a last minute update to the porch and yard! I need to make my tiny cemetary yet, get the fogger and cauldron out and buy a half bale of straw for the porch to hold the cauldron. It will be a busy day! I hope everyone has a festive and fun Halloween!

Thinking of you!

This is a page of an album I made for my mother. This is an all -time favorite picture of me with my mom and dad! We are at the lake we my mom is an ocean girl though. I stay loyal to my lake, mostly because I think it is easy to get to. Someday, I will get back to the ocean again!
I have been thinking of my mom and dad alot lately, so I wanted to share this sweet picture of them with everyone! I love you Mom And Dad! Stephanie

You can scrapbook too!

If you have visited, you may have seen this scrapbook page. I am adding it to the blog because the image is larger, plus I happen to like to look at the little beach girl in the picture. This picture was taken many years ago, but I still love it! I love the way her hair is blowing in the wind. This page shows how you can use our large stamps for paper piecing on your scrapbook pages. The lighthouse is Cape Lookout in North Carolina and is stamped from that stamp available at october pumpkin.
Please remember there are a few days left yet to enter a card giveaway at You can enter to win a free card made by the stamp designer, Judith Fogt. Goodluck! Have a great day!
