Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween Everyone! I can not believe the month of October is at it's end. WOW! Our Trick Or Treat was last night. Works out well because the Steeler game is on tonight! My husband and I are taking Danny this afternoon to a viewing of the original Frankenstein with Boris Karloff. I hope Danny can handle it. He didn't do well when I was playing scary Halloween music for him earlier in the week.
I Zombiefied Danny yesterday. I think he turned out quite well. He received lots of compliments. The rotting flesh looked better as the evening went on. Danny begged for his costume next year to be a mask. I just don't like masks, I prefer making his costumes. Just add it to my "to do" list every year.
November will be a busy, busy month for me. I have a scrapbook to make, my goal is to have it made within 3 weeks. I'm doing it as a favor for my friend. She is giving it to her mom for her 75th b-day. Last week Kathy and I sorted through all of the pics and put them in order. I have my work cut out for me.
November is also my daughter's bridal shower, she is getting married in December. I was able to make and mail out the invitations earlier in the week. I also have cookies to bake for the wedding, btw cookie suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've never made Lady Locks, are they hard to make? Recipes please? Kelly's shower is the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so at least I will have all day Friday to prepare. Oh, and I still don't have a dress yet.
I did notice and made a mental note to myself, do not take pics when my hair is pulled back in a ponytail, makes me look old, alot older than what I am and apply a little more makeup.
Well time is a tickin' and I have scrapbookin' to do. I won't be able to participate in any challenges for a month or so and the thought of that is killing me. Life does get in the way sometimes.
As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

I can not believe that it is October! Where did the summer go?
Where did September go? We are getting our dose of Indian Summer.
The temp is in the high 70's and is supposed to hit 80 on Monday! We had 4 days of rain and temps in the high 40's. Talk about depression! Amazing what happens to your inner self when that big, bright yellow orb appears in the sky.
This is my submission for Simply Scrapping Crafts. October Week 1 Card Corner. Use Black, White and one other color. This was probably one of the fastest cards I have ever made.
***Exciting News*** I was chosen as one of the winners over at Christmas Cards All Year Round!! So happy and so surprised! It was the first time I entered the challenge over there. I'm pretty happy about it.
I played with paper today, not as much as I would have liked to because my Friend Elisabeth and her baby, Liam stopped for a surprise visit. I haven't seen Elisabeth in ages. It was nice visiting. Liam is getting so big!
I'll be posting more later. I have tons to post!!!
Thanks for stopping and Have a great night!!
