said... My favorite fall memory..... throwing my "First Annual Hobo Happening". We had built a home on 25 acres and my husband dug a large firepit to cook "hobo stew" over and roast marshmallows for s'mores......yuh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-mee!!! The stew was very interesting since everybody had to bring a can of food to add to it then eat the concoction out of the can they brought. The hobo outfits were a real "hoot" and a tradition was started that went on for 10 years. What memories!!! Happy Fall, Ya'll!!!!!!!!

Vickie email so we can mail you this Halloweeen kit.

Hope everyone has fun tonight Trick or Treating :)

A beautiful layout by Rahel Menig
I'm loving the clouds and pillow journaling!

Rahel's Notes: I love to work with just one picture, that really tells the story. To tell this story, I needed more! To make it a little more surprising I used this very strange picture of my husbands back and then when you open it, you will find out, what this story all is about - the decoration of our bedroom! 

Supply List: 
Paper: Crate Paper, BoBunny, My Mind's Eye; 
Stickers: Basic Grey; Stamps: swissgirlDesigns; Punch: McGill; RubOn: Hambly; 7gypsies tape.

What an exquisite piece of art by Julie Bonner.

Julie rolled flowers and added Ranger Stickles around the edges of the flowers to really make them "pop".  

"Behind the flowers you can see the use of the Crafter's Workshop Template 6 x 6 Paradise.  I masked around the edges of the template, covering my entire background sheet, and then lightly misted with Maya Road mist.  I then repeated this once more to continue the pattern up the side of the paper.  This created a great foliage-looking pattern behind the flowers.  

This photo shows a detailed view of my favorite poem & this gorgeous glittered bird I cut from a sheet of My Mind''s Eye patterned paper."  Julie  

Products Used:
Paper:  My Mind's Eye Lost & Found
Template:  Crafter's Workshop Template 6 x 6 Paradise
