With Dada out of town, I can't hand out candy and take the boys trick-or-treating in the neighborhood. I'll be setting some candy out along with this sign:
Doodlebug Halloween Parade papers and embellishments from the Apron Strings October '13 STBB kit; assorted Sassafras Lass large and glitter alphabet stickers; Pink Paislee white alphabet stickers; Viva Decor glitter pen; Sakura gel pens; unknown cardstock and ribbon.
Jillibean Soup note card and Apple Cheddar papers, Stampin' Up Countless Sayings 2 stamp, Sassafras glitter alphabet stickers, Queen & Co. pearls, Glossy Accents.
Stampin' Up! patterned paper, markers (More Mustard and Calipso Coral), and cardstock (Whisper White); Versafine Tuxedo Black ink; American Crafts clear embossing powder; Tim Holtz distress inks (Barn Door and Antique Linen); Offray ribbon; stamp from EttyonEtsy; Darice note card.
I made another two birthday cards this week. Lots of stamping, which I haven't done much before.
Stampin' Up! Wildflower Meadow stamp, matching embossing folder, and card stock (Whisper White and Not Quite Navy). I inked the stamp with Crumb Cake then colored the stamp with Night of Navy, Real Red, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, and Garden Green before stamping (all from SU!). Sentiment die from Simon Says Stamp.
SU! card stock, and Tape it and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets; Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Borders sentiment stamp, inks (Schoolhouse Red, Lipstick Red, Slate, and Fog), and jewels; Jillibean Soup staples paper; Versafine black ink; Versamark embossing ink; American Crafts clear embossing powder; and K&Co. layered sticker. I really liked the effect of clear embossing over black ink (although the photo doesn't do it justice).
I finally got a chance to put some scrapbook pages together.
Sassafras Lass papers; Hampton Art glitter alphabet; October Afternoon mini-alphabet; Jillibean Soup numbers and hearts; Signo gel pen; Glossy Accents; unknown cardstock. This is probably the most journaling I've ever done on a layout.
American Crafts Mayberry papers and stickers; K&Co. flower stickers; Jillibean Soup mini-alphabet.
Out of Magic by C.D. Coffelt, like most novellas, left me wishing for more. But I have a strong promise that the next book in the series will be released shortly.
Easy Bake Coven by Liz Schulte was a cute, fast read, but the ending didn't make me want to jump onto book 2 like the Grisha one did.
I really enjoyed West of Paradise by Marcy Hatch. I love the time travel vacation premise and the wild west descriptions showed so much historic research that I felt I was there with the characters.
Another favorite was the Apollo Academy by Kimberly P. Chase. I picked it up because it is supposed to be a new adult sci-fi. Even though I didn't notice much difference from young adult, I went directly to the author's page after I finished to see when the sequel was coming out. Unfortunately, not until next year.
