Minion 2013

Last year for Halloween, Bubba was a minion from the movie Despicable Me.  
He was so excited to help pull together the costume.  I had to look long and hard for the mustard hat with matching t-shirt.  To tell you the truth, it was harder to find the shirt than the hat.  $.99 at Target for the cap and way too much for the shirt!  The overalls could only be found in the mens section at Wal-Mart.  We cut 17 feet off of the length for them to fit.  The glasses, well, we found those at Michael's for a buck!  Although they gave him a headache, they were the icing on the cake.  
Once I got the cap, we added black pipe cleaners up through the top for hair!!  
Flo was a security guard and the creeper in the window, that is just his dad!

Bubba was able to wear the costume a couple places.  To the school fundraiser haunted hay rides and for Trick or Treat.  He walked in to the fundraiser slightly embarrassed until he realized he had the coolest costume there and everyone was talking about it!  
I think he could have won the contest, if they would of had one:o)

This year, unfortunately, he does not want to be CUTE.  
Guess what that means!!!  You will have to wait and see.  
You can bet my layout won't be bright and colorful!

Anyway, this layout!

Thanks for the Memories - eclectic Paperie

It saddens me to tell you that eclectic Paperie is closing its doors.  I have been designing with Kim for a couple years now.  I taught at her local store, ran the super-fun KOTM and created on her design team.  However, my connection to her and many friends will not end because the store is closing.  We will be gathering for play time and I am hoping that our monthly meetings at Friendly's will still continue.  I am sure we can find something to talk about!  I am bidding farewell over at eP today.  Sharing a few of my favorite projects where I tried to get a little "dirty."  I have also listed the gals names in hopes that people will continue to follow them on their journey.  

Thank you for your encouraging comments over at eP.  I will truly miss the daily posts.

Layout re-do

Recently I was sorting my scrapbooking layouts to file them away into their albums.  (I need a new system!)  I came across three in the bunch that I had to ditch!  Like, I am embarrassed by them.  Seriously!  Here is the original stack to be put away. (Minus 3!)

I reprinted two of the photos and created a new layout with product I just received from Paper Issues!

The woodgrain paper and the Thanksgiving theme, made this layout a perfect fit for Paper Issues Current Link Party - Woodn't You Know, with PinkFresh Studio.  

Here is a list of product used on this layout:
MME - enamels
Studio Calico - Flair
Gold Spray paint from Michael's

Thanks for Looking!

Oh, one more thing!   
We say a recipe on Pinterest that my boy and I just had to try with the leftover spaghetti.  It is awesome!  Just needs a little dipping sauce on the side!
