Yes, the witch is in...

I hope you had a fun time this Halloween and you did not get spooked!
I made quite a few candy bar covers this year and some matchbook candy holders but I did not finish all the projects I started, crafting time was very elusive. I failed to get pictures made before I distributed any of the treat holders this year - not too smart on my part. Here are some cards from last year...I am sad to say that I never got any Halloween cards made this year. I hope these can inspire you (and me!) for next year. Since Amanda has aged out of trick or treating, we still get in some Halloween fun...we had a fun time at "Trunk or Treat" again this year.
Here is Amanda with her "little sister" that she has "adopted".Amanda helped out with the younger children along with some of the other girls. She also decorated our trunk and passed out the candy for me, sweet!
She had fun walking some of the younger girls around to all the decorated trunks, helping them to fill their bags full of candy and goodies.
Amanda always enjoys riding the hay ride too...but since they wait til dark, it is usually too cold and bumpy for me these days.
The best part of the evening to me, is when the bonfire is is always so nice to get warm by the fire.
Hope you have some toasty Halloween memories to keep you warm this year too.
Peachy heart hugs, Debbie

Finally...a New Post

Well, finally, here I am with an update. Whew, so much has happened since March. I surely broke my New Years' resolution to post artwork more often. But here I am now. Let me start with a family update.
Here is a recent picture of Amanda.
We were out having fun at Johnny G’s for Girl Scout kick off to the new school year. She was so happy with her ticket “haul”! She is working on a SB layout from this day; I will post it when she finishes. She just loves her new GS troop; I am so thankful to the wonderful ladies and girls that invited her
in...she is a Senior GS this year...gosh I can not believe how quickly these last 9 years have passed.
I can still remember those "good ole" are a couple pics from the past.
Golly, where did the time go? Our daisy troop was learning to iron...haha, the skill did not stick with Amanda, I am very sad to say. But I still have my beautiful girl and she has lots of other great talents.
I do really need to organize my old photos and get scrapping on these. If you have not yet tried Studio J, you should. I plan to use Studio J to catch myself up...I did not think I would like digital scrapbooking, but with studio J, studio scrapbooking is easy, fast, economical and so fun!
If you would like more info about it, let me know.
Peachy heart hugs, Debbie
