Lots of Treats


The Russet cul de sac Halloween party was a success last night.  We had food, we had drink, we had cute kids by the bushel full. Marli and Franny added to the cute factor with their costumes. I made cupcakes and emptied the freezer of various snack-stuff to feed the neighborhood. Don't the cupcakes look great next to the Colonel's bucket of chicken?   All is well with Halloween.



On the scrappy front I had some successful shopping this weekend.  Last weekend I missed my LSS's annual "Friends and Family" night - 40% discount store wide - due to the U2 concert.  Don't think that I wasn't torn about this.  I was really upset that I was going to miss the shopping and the deals (really, I was trying to figure out how to go shopping before the concert, but hubby set me straight).  But I made arrangements for my own shopping experience and filled a cart Saturday with goods.  I got holiday gifts and stocked up on yummy scrappy goods.  See, I can have my 40% off and U2 too!  Muhahahahahahaha!  Also I was browsing the clearance aisle at the local craft store the other day, and came across paper trimmer blade packs for 50 cents.  I happen to have this trimmer (among many trimmers) and it will now get more use now that I have about 50 replacement blades!  I think I will go see if they have more....wouldn't you?

Time to go see "This is It" and get crafting this weekend.  Can't wait to scrap the new Halloween pics!
