So have you all checked out the new stuff at Scrap Matters yet today? Both Andilynn Designs and Trixie Scraps had new products. Cute Lil' Punkin by Trixie Scraps is the perfect kit to use when scrapping visits to the pumpkin patch or any other fall or Halloween type pictures. The best part is it's on sale for only $4.00 today and tomorrow. What a deal!

I used it to scrap this picture of Michaella dancing with Minnie Mouse at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party a few years ago. I love the way it turned out.

Andilynn Designs released a 2010 Quick Page Calendar. It's 8 1/2" x 11". It would make the perfect Christmas gift to give to anyone on your gift list. Grab it this week while it's only $8.95.

A Sneak Peek and a freebie

Can you believe its already October? I know I can't! This year has sure flown by. You can definitely tell it's not summer here anymore, too. The weather has turned cold and rainy. Yesterday was the first time in about a week that it didn't rain. The sun was out and it was actually a very nice autumn day. As soon as the kids got home and Michaella was finished with her homework, I sent them outside to enjoy the nice weather before it turns cold again this weekend. They found a salamander in my garden pond and were so excited.

I was so hoping this was going to be a nice weekend so we could take the kids to the pumpkin patch and get our pumpkins to carve. If we do go, the kids will definitely have to wear their winter coats. (which don't exactly go with autumn colors. ;) ) This has become a tradition for us. Every year we go to the Pumpkin Festival at the apple orchard and pick out a few pumpkins. Then the kids each get to pick out a pattern to carve in them and we spend the afternoon carving them. The kids have such a good time doing it and look forward to it every year.

And look at this little sneak peek from Trixie Scraps...

Doesn't it look like a great kit to use with those pumpkin patch pictures? Can't wait for you all to see how awesome this kit is! So check out Scrap Matters in the morning to see it revealed.

I thought this summer was busy...this fall sure feels just as busy if not busier, especially this week. I'm glad next week is a short week because we'll need it to catch our breath. Though I don't know if it'll be any slower. lol. Michaella has dance and a Girl Scout sleepover on Friday. The firemen are also having their annual Fireman's Movie. This year it's G-Force. The kids have been asking to go to that since before it came out, so we will definitely have to make time to go to it.

Well it's been a while since I've given you all a freebie, so I thought I would come up with a little something again. My parents gave us a membership to the local zoo for Christmas, so we made it quite a few times this summer. I'm always on the look out for zoo stuff, so I thought what better thing to make for you is some word art that is zoo themed. Well I might have gotten a bit carried away with it, which is a good thing for you. I couldn't stop with just this pack once I got started. I ended up making 3! Plus a pack of frames!!!

Download here or here
Well that is all for today. Remember to keep checking back in the next week or so, as I will be posting the the rest of them when I get a chance. :) Enjoy!
