October Planning - mambi

This is this the first year that we are going ALL OUT with activities for Halloween.  We had a date night last week with an 'adults only' haunted house.  I am quite surprised that I survived being chased my a man with a chainsaw.  Anyway, for family fun, we had booked tickets to a trolley ride in Salem, MA (where the witches are)!  We also got tickets for a local park's Screamfest, last night we went to the Rise of The Jack-o-lanterns and Trick or Treat is on Halloween itself this year.  This CRAZY amount of fun requires diligent planning!  My layout looks busy, but there is still plenty of space for more tasks.

I have shared my planning layout on the me & my BIG ideas blog today with links to all the items that I used.

Lunch Date - A Flair for Buttons

Anytime, anywhere, you can convince my boy and I to go on a lunch date.  You mention Cracker Barrel and we are there!!!  Ever since my boy was little, we would carefully remove the paper piece that wraps the silverware.  Then make it into a circle and use it for binos.  Simple, free entertainment.  He also still likes to blow the straw wrapper which drives me insane.  Why?  Because it is always shot at me.  I am always opposite him and his dad.  Anyway, these photos are from our date a few months ago, still creating binos with paper rings.  

So, today I am on the A Flair for Buttons Blog.  I love the flair I chose.  You can find all of Shelly's flair HERE in her ETSY Store.  I used Crate Paper Cool Kid that can be purchased at Paper Issues for 20% when you use code: Mary-Ann.

Happy Halloween - Paper Issues

Its is that time of the month again!  
The exclusive Swag Bags are available over in the Paper Issues Store.  
I ADORE creating with them since they all coordinate so nicely.  
All you have to add is a large sheet of paper and sometimes a title.  This time I added white enamels and doodled with a white gel pen.  

A few other DT members scrapped along with me this month.  Head over to the PI blog to see.

Last year, Bub was a killer clown and his dog a dancer.  We stayed in our neighbor and had fun with our neighbors.
