Happy Thanksgiving... Enjoy!!

Good Wednesday Morning!!! Hope your all having a GREAT week!!! :) Can you BELIEVE in only 2 weeks and 1 day it will be Thanksgiving Day AND in 6 weeks.. Christmas Day?  I personally CAN NOT!! Time is flying!! and mix in there my son will turn 17.. I need life to SLOW down a bit! LOL!!

I have a share for you today!! I really LOVED the Shabby Tea Rooms Challenge this week.... so I wanted to play along.. I usually always give my Mama some pumpkin bread for Thanksgiving when she comes down.. AND I like to purty it up! WELL this year.. I did it a bit more then usual! BUT it is for my Mama.. so here it is .. (MOM do not look any farther! HA HA!)


NOW this bread isnt the one my Mama will get.. she usually gets THIS one (YUM!) but I carefully unwrapped the wrapping so I Can use it for her bread! and my family HAPPILY ate this Pumpkin Bread with mini choc. chips!!  

I actually stitched on the wax paper, and I gotta say I LOVE that idea.. I had seen on pinterest how to make your own bags like that.. so I decided to try it for the wrap.. I can see BAGS in my future! HA HA!!

For my chalkboard technique I actually used my chalks on the image.. and really like how it turned out!! AND for the baking part.. well homemade baked bread.. I HOPE it counts!! :)

Ok enough chatter!! I have a card for ya! :) It is for my color challenge at Scrappin Mojo.. and I am gonna enter a few more challenges! (listed below card)

I was making some scrunch ribbon last week and figured  out when I spray my glimmer mist I should spray it over tissue.. so I did.. and now I have some FUN tissue colors! 
So I whipped up this purple flower!! :)
I WISH you could see the embossed paper, it is all glimmer misty.. but that is so hard to capture on film.. so your gonna have to TRUST me! HA HA!!

Autumn Wishes!

Happy November!! Where oh WHERE is the time going! It is FLYING so fast for me!! BUT I do have to admit I am so looking forward to the HOLIDAYS!!! I have some creative ideas I want to make up.. but FIRST I need to get the 17 year old Bday invites made up! (THAT does not seem possible!) Ok sorry side tracked!!! 

I wanted to play along with this weeks MIM challenge (and a few others too!) so I made up  this little box using LOTS of yummy  PTI stuff..Glitter.. Scrunchie Ribbon, Pearls, and Stitching! Some  of my FAVORITE things!!!!  (** Please note only the pumpkin is inlaid.. I add the stem, leave and flower on top of the scallop die! BUT the pumpkin is actually cut from the small scallop die , stamped, inked, glittered and put back inside .. LOVE this look.. will do it again!!)

Here is my box, and all challenges linked below all photos!


Now if you are still up for a little photo share.. Here come some Halloween Pics.. I have a FEELING you will be seeing LOTS of xmas coming up.. so I want to get these in! HA HA!! (THANKS if you make it through them!!!)

My girly is the only one the went out T or T this year with her friends but I HAD to have photo of my boy too! :) 

I ADMIT to a PUMPKIN ADDICTION! :) Here is our front porch all ready for the Night!!


 These 2 didnt get a solo in the above.. hee hee! So here they are!! 


This is my FAVORITE of the night!! HEE HEE! (the teen boy OWED me.. so I made him pose!!)
Now what is funny is he is getting some SYMPATHY on this.. and even got a bag of candy from our sweet little neighbor girl.. BUT he chose to not go out (None of his friends were..) and he had homework.. AND the icing on the  cake.. his sister has braces and cant eat over half of what she got! so he is just fine! HA HA!! :)
