Good Times / Autumn Afternoon / Bearsgarten

click to enlarge
On Saturday, Daddy was raking the fallen leaves - Kaylie offered to help. She played with the garbage bag meant to hold the leaves, then ran up and down the sidewalk filling the bag with air, all while waiting for Daddy to gather them up in a pile so she could jump in them. She did everything, but help. :)

Woohoo I Am Catching Up

I am so excited...I have uploaded my photographs and am up to the end of August! That means that I have to fix and upload all of the photos for September and October and I'll be up to date on my project!

Then the hard work begins...assembling them into pages to make a cohesive book. Lots of work, but I am looking forward to a completed book.

Lorie Davison/Don't Eat Worms Free Sampler

Products I used to make the preceeding page:
Ticket To Dragon's End A Storybook Kit (Everything Is In It!) By Lorie
Flying Dreams Storybook Collection (With Everything In It) By Lorie

If you've been visiting my blog for any length of time you will already know that I have a crush on Lorie Davison.

She is a fabulous illustrator, an uber talented designer and most importantly, a sweet, caring and warm person. I look forward - with child-like enthusiasm - to each and every one of her creations. I wish I had an inkling of the talent that she possesses in one finger, so to speak.

What's that? You don't know who Lorie is? Want to know what other projects she has in the works? Check out this article and don't forget to download a sample of her upcoming work: DON'T EAT WORMS.

And don't forget to participate in the challenge... here's an except from the interview about it:

Our readers can ask you questions and you can answer them. Then, next Sunday, I’ll randomly pick one person from the comments section to win a kit from your store and another to win a copy of the Dreaming of Dragon’s End storybook quick page set! We’ll also give away one of your kits and a copy of Dreaming of Dragon’s End to a couple of participants in our Lorie Davison Play Day! Anyone that creates a layout with their Lorie stash and posts it in our Play Day gallery or forum, will be entered into that drawing for a chance to win!

Are you feeling lucky? :) 5037

Pumpkin Patch / Impressions of Harvest

This is October's kit of the month at Scrapboographics: Impressions of the Harvest. Isn't it gorgeous. It works well with Autumn activities and Halloween. Click HERE to be taken to the blog where you can see 20 additional pages.

Click to enlarge.

Autumn is in the air, it is finally here. This morning as I took the kids to school, it was a chilly 52 degrees. It has warmed up a bit - it is 63 degrees at this moment.

Anyway, October is here and that means going to the pumpkin patch. We haven't gotten them yet this year, but it is a matter of time now. In the meantime, here's a page of the kids at the pumpkin patch last year.
