Halloween Recap

Good morning...I hope everyone is recovering from all the candy they ate last night! I thought I'd share a few pictures from our neighborhood.  Our neighborhood has a Halloween parade the Saturday before Halloween.  Here's the neighborhood gang!
Here are my four on Halloween night...Star Wars, skeleton, tie dye boy and a woman...nice variety!
On Halloween night, Ryan had a few friends come over for trick or treat. His friend, Jake, came over as an old man.  Ryan didn't have much of a costume other than a wig I had from a work event.  I suggested he go as Jake's wife...which quickly led to some make up and a robe being added to the costume!  I think maybe Jake is proposing to Ryan here?
And then they quickly came to their senses and were going out for a can't see Pat throwing the football!
And here are a few more of my favorites from the night.... Nana and Marcel...
 Jonathon and Emma...tie dye boy and duct tape girl!           My sweet skeleton...Collin.
 Marcel and Daddy...
A very nice fall night...perfect for trick or treating!

And now my card for this week's CASE Study (someone remind me what CASE stands for too!)  Jen asked and I honestly can't remember!  I loved the sketch on this week's I followed along with some Christmas inspiration.
Don't forget about the giveaway here!

Ingredients:  PaperTrey Ink Kraft Paper and Vintage Ornaments Stamps; Making Memories FaLaLaLa Paper; SU Cherry Cobbler Ribbon/Ink and Whisper White/Green Garden Paper and Ink; Basic Grey Gems


  1. Thanks for sharing your Halloween photos. (Ryan's costume is a complete crack up along with his friend). That is why I like your blog so much because you incorporate two of my favorite things: family and stamping.
    Your Christmas card is wonderful and festive! I need to get my hands on some of that MM paper.
    I 've heard different versions of the meaning of CASE, but I have always interpreted it as change and somewhat edit.
    Also, really like the damask card in the post below and how you placed the gems.
