I'm a bit behind in my blogging though in my defense I did try earlier today but something was going on in Blogland and wouldn't let me in!!!

Happy Halloween everyone :-) What are you all doing? I wasn't going to do pumpkin, no candy, Pierce and I were going to go to the movies to avoid the off-key singing, bad jokes and disappointed looks when they saw what I was putting in their bags but there was nothing on I fancied and when I was doing my food shopping all the staff were dressed up and I felt a bit of a meanie so I got enough 'cavity' food for 10 bags...I'm going to put them in a box outside with a sign reading 'Happy Halloween...Take ONE...X Factor in progress...when they're gone they're gone' I did something similar last year and I don't think a single person came and the same the year before. The year before that we had about 25 so you never know what's going to happen.

Nikki is going South this week!!! She's off to the NEC in Birmingham with Craftology so it will be interesting to see how she does there. A friend of Ryan's asked me to make her mom a card for her birthday for today and this is what I came up with -

I love Martini Nikki...she's so classy and sophisticated and easy to colour. I love this paper from My Mind's Eye but it's my very last piece and I don't think I can get it any more :-(

This next card was for my neighbour's little granddaughter who is one today. Angela asked for something with pumpkins which I didn't have but decided to have a look about and found this little one on the All That Scrap's website. She's a digi download which was even better. She's a Swiss Pixie called Pippi and I think she's so cute. I saw this card layout when I was blog hopping the other week. I changed a few things to make it into a birthday the upside down pumpkin for a balloon!! I thought that was quite clever of me lol. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out and Angela was delighted...job done!!

I've been reliably told by my big sis that my banner is gone and it has been for a week...a week!!!! And I haven't even noticed LOL. I even had my friend Elaine confirm it for me which she did so once I post this I'm gonna check it out. I'm hoping the reason behind it is Heather, my blog lady, is fixing things up for me.
Right...gotta get the note out for my little Halloweener's (sounds a bit rude lol) before they start ringing my door-bell. Have a good and safe night.
Catch ya later x
