"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

CANDY WITCH / USSIS #130...


Well, this is officially my last Halloween card until next year... I'm kinda sad about it! BUT - Over the next week or so I can do some Halloween scrapping, so I'm happy about that! 

Alex is VERY excited to go trick or treating - he's been asking for days "Is it Halloween?" His costume this year is "Piderman" - I'm not sure where he was exposed to Piderman, but that's what he wanted. I love that he says "pider" instead of spider. Itsy Bitsy Pider is his fave song, btw! We sang it twice on the way to daycare this morning. Maisie is an all pink version of Super Girl, since she doesn't really have an opinion one way or another on the matter of costumes. All she knows is she loves to dress up any day of the year!

The sketch is this week's Unscripted Sketch and the image, Candy Witch,  is from Megan and her Dilly Beans... today is the last day of her sale and the last day to mention you came from my blog to be entered in her drawing - 1 entry for each image you buy & you could win 10 images! See her blog for sale details!


Bye for now...




TrIcK oR TrEaT from Miss Mis Designs...


Happy Halloween for those of you who celebrate. Dannethia created a treat (or tick) just for you. Don't be fooled by the appearance of this goodie. It may or may not be in the goodie bag. The only way to know for sure what I have put in the bag is to snag it. You can visit Miss Mis Designs' Blog to download your "treat" (or trick!).... but you better hurry!

SPOOKY FUN / Miss Mis Designs New Release...



Here's a little scrappy Halloween fun! I used the newest release by Miss Mis Designs, Bewitched. I absolutely L-O-V-E  the sparkly damask paper - SO COOL! Since I didn't have any unscrapped Halloween pics, I decided to visit my one of my favorite "haunts" - Pinterest, to look for some Halloween goodness. I scrapped some cool party ideas for the future when the kids are older and into parties and stuff!

Here's the fab kit:

MUMMY & SPIDER / CQC #107 & FTL #162...


Good morning blogland! Hope everyone had a restful night... I would have if I hadn't stayed up to make 3 cards - LOL! I used another cute image form Dilly Beans, this one is called Mummy & Spider Love Candy! Such a happy little spider...sound like Bob Ross don't I?!? I colored the lollipop, cut it out and popped it up. I added some glitter to it, as well. In the 2 "o"s of the word "boo", I put rhinestones as eyes.

This is a take on this week's Fall-to Layout, as well as the colors from today's colourQ!


 Here's the watermarked Dilly Bean image...

PRAYING AROUND THE WORLD / Crafting Prayers for Katie & Family Fundraiser...



I was very honored to be asked by Lori Boyd to help this cause for Katie & her family. I am certain you have probably seen lots of activity online about Katie, but if you're not aware of her, you can meet her HERE on her Card blog and HERE on her Family Blog. 

I don't really "know" Katie, I wish I did! She seems to have touched SO MANY people around the globe, she's drawn so many amazing people to herself, she must be a really amazing person, too! She has to be, to be so graceful as she not only fights for her life but honestly blogs about her ordeal... NOT in a poor me sort of way, but a "this is how it is & what I'm doing about it" sort of way. I absolutely solute you, Katie - and I pray for you everyday, as I know so many people around the world are doing. 

So this image by Lori is perfect - PRAYING AROUND THE WORLD. And it's part of this special bundle of images for only $15.

GIRLYgirl / Miss Mis New Release, DHD Technique Challenge & CS #177...


Here's my girlygirl in a hat crocheted by my mom. Mom put a huge flower on the side of it and I thought it would be cool to have it coming out of the frame. Cutting out part of a picture like this is called an extraction, which was the technique challenge over at DHD this month.

The sketch is from Creative Scrappers and the kit is a collab by 5 designers: Miss Mis Design, ViolaMoni, Lacey Bittner Design, Scrap-A-Holic and Designer Girl Scrap, called Think Pink.




Thanks for looking!
