Halloween

 Hello and thank you for vistiting me today. Have you had a chance yet to take a look at the new sketch over on the Friday Sketcher blog designed by Jacquline? Well.. this one.. must say was a tricky one for me but the Design Team came up with many ideas and iam sure you will find some inspiration for your card. I have used the sektch to use up some of my acetate sheets i still had from my Scrapbooking beginnings :-)
 Added some Shimmerz paints to the pumpkins in Marigold and Celery to the bag and leaves.





 Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments since the last week.
My family left Sunday our home and on Tuesday morning we left Michigan at 4 am. it took us almost 16 hours longer to arrive at our destination in Florida as we had planned. We were on the road with the boys almost 2 days! On the way down to Miami, we stopped in Orlando to just grab some dinner and strech the legs, we took by accident a wrong exit and drove by the CHA expo center. OMG.. i was not expecting the complex beeing sooo hudge. If you are going down to Orlando at that time.. make sure you bring some rain gear. IT WAS POORING literally in seconds it was white in front of us.. i totally forgot that it is Floridas hurricane season at the moment. However today we went to Hollywood beach (close by Fort Lauderdale) and it was like you would expect from Florida. Hot and the ocean warm like a bathtub. I have my first sunburn and typing this laying on my tummy autsch :-)
