Good Monday Morning!

What a gorgeous weekend!!! Oh man, it felt so good to get outside this weekend and enjoy this awesome fall weather...there is nothing like the Northeast during fall...amazing. There is a huge craft festival here and a few of us went and got some goodies, nothing major just some dried flowers and I had to get some of my fave cream of crab soup....YUM!

I was surfing the internet this morning in search of the best Star Wars costume for owen this year. Since I am such a huge fan of Star Wars, it gets me totally excited for Halloween! Here is layout from last year with owen in his Optimus Prime costume using my kit from Serendipity Scrapbooks. Remember...precrop challenges for our Pimp Your Bra crop are up!



This bat is a wooden embellishment {you get 3 in the kit} and I covered it in Doodlebug Crushed Velvet {it took a few layers} and then added the googley eyes.



And I have some exciting news!!! I won the monthly contest over at TaDa! I am so excited...I used MyStampBOX stamps on it and thought these fun oval shapes would make a cute flower. They sent me a really cool card kit so make sure you check out their contest for October using circles.

Awesome scrapbook page. Modern and shabby, I love it! Don't be jealous but I saw Chewy this weekend. He was roaming a local antique shop during a craft festival... who knew Chewy had a thing for vintage.
