Be safe!

This Is It

Just got home from watching this movie..
I could hardly wait to see it I was so excited! :) It's brilliant, amazing, wonderful, entertaining...I could go on and on right now. I seriously wanted to get out of my seat and start dancing around! It's very powerful and emotional at the same time. If you are a fan like me you will definitely appreciate the creativity and brilliance of this film. Go see it!

~Fall in Love class..{pages part 1}~

I'm so happy to be finally getting around to taking photos of my pages from Kara's class a couple weeks back. I still have a few more pages to work on and add. I will do those this week (I hope) and post them in a "part 2" blog. :)
Hope you enjoy!
{Materials used: various scrapbook pages, vintage papers, newspaper, black felt tip marker, stapler, doilies (white & gold), Anthropologie catalogs, Tombo Mono liquid glue, white drawing paper, vintage book page, confetti leaves, white piece of lace, Post-It flags, and a writing lines tablet page}

◆ my 5 favorite things to do in October!~

1. watch "Hocus Pocus" with my sisters.
We always save this movie for the fall since its Halloween and all. Ahh...this is definitely a family favorite! We have certain lines we'll quote to each other and just laugh over and over. :)~ Good times, good times!
2. pumpkin carving
These were some photos from last year. My friend Jennie and her daughter Elysia and I all had a little pumpkin carving party at their house. Jennie did our makeup as cats. =)
3. taking every opportunity possible to photograph fall leaves..
4. dream about the red holiday cups from Starbucks and when they are going to come out
(I get excited for them every year!)

5. looking forward to visiting my uncle in Dallas every October and going to Farmers Market
It's raining like crazy here all afternoon....☂
I'm not sure if I will head out for coffee or just stay in.
Have a great Sunday and stay dry if you're in a rainy city today like me! :)
