Never to late for fall!

Every year my  friends and I go to the same amazing pumpkin patch. 
2011 was no exception I am just a little getting it posted!

 One of my favorite things that have hanging around is a pole with about 30 licences plates from all different states with a church bird house and  the perfect sign shown below. I am always looking for the best way to to add this to my page and I think I finally found it!
And here is the total package!

4th Grade

Pages don't make themselves and this one has been waiting a really long time!
I always try to make school pages simple and what could be more perfect?
A simple page made with Simple Stories!

Quick, easy and cute! Just the way I like it! 
I think the longest was part of this page was waiting for my stickels to dry!

First Dance

Here is a quick little post of my step daughter's first school dance.  
Now correct me if I am wrong but she is in 5th grade, 
when you were in school do you remember having school dances that early in school?  
The paper that I used for this page I found in a stack a had lying around and I loved it for this!
I used the same stack for whole page. 
The flowers I cut with a Tim Holtz Sizzix Die and added some pearls. 

The tag is from Close To My Heart. I love these tags. 
They are white to start, and you ink them with the color you want.
They catch the ink in all the right places and are fabulous!

Geek like me!

This year my husband and I went Comicon for the first time and had a BLAST! 
Not the big Comicon mind you, the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle. 
Here is one of the pages I created from that. 
There were so many fun and amazing people to look at and fun things to do there!
If you are a fan of the TV show "The Walking Dead"  
you will recognize Shane in the middle of the page taking out a zombie. 
To the left we had "Dark Helmet" from "Spaceballs"
And to the right we have just a super cool chick in a comic book dress. 

The paper is all Close To My Heart and couldn't be more perfect!
Here is a better look!
One of the thing I love to do is use my pictures as embellishments like I did above with Dark Helmet and below with the cool comic book chick!
I love the to cut around the pictures and use pop-up dots. 
I think it looks fabulous!

Now lastly for all you "Walking Dead" fans, here is Shane!

I hope you enjoyed my geeky post today! 
If you are a geek like me I am sure you did.

It's been awhile but now I am back!

April was really rough for me personally and I wasn't really feeling like myself. 
I said I am back but I am not am not so sure of that. 
I think I have lost my scrappin' mo-jo. I hate that! 
I made some pages at my retreat last month
which I am going to showcase this month and I hope by June I will be truly back. 

I am gonna start with my Cupcake whom I love and always makes me smile!

My friend bought me this super cute My Minds Eye kit
 and I thought it would be perfect for baby Dylan's page! My sweet little cupcake!
