the last week of october...

can you believe it? this is one of my fave months of the year and i feel like i have missed it ;(
things have been so crazy but i am discharging a few clients this week so things will slow down for me a bit which is good. i know i have been a bad blogger when it comes to visiting and i promise to change that this week!

Here are a few lo's i did for some crops the other weekend at Serendipity Scrapbooks and A Million Memories...

This is my very good friend, Beth...her brother and brian are best friends and we hit it off and are mad friends. we love texting each other with fun inside jokes...she has a sick sense of humour like me ;) and just moved to NC which makes me sad but when you are young and free you gotta do that kinda fun stuff. i know i am glad that i got to do all of that...so this lo is about hoping we stay friends...

And...if you haven't seen Darcie's papers and products before you gotta get some here...


I used Chocolate Box from Core'dinations {this is my fave line of theirs for sure} So when you and the brown, the color core comes through and how fun is pink and brown????


and this layout is when owen and brian went flying with our friends...owen actually held the controls! i sanded the swirls from the plane through the Chocolate Box Core'dinations. seriously...if you have gotten some Core'dinations Color Cardstock yet, you better! click here to check out my fave place to buy it ;) okay...okay...Serendipity Scrapbooks!



Love this plane from Studio Calico and I added some Collage Press goodies.

Love the lo's, the textures, colors and the sweet short story about your friend. NC, where? Me too, I'm in Sanford, near Ft. Bragg (Fayetteville). Where do you go cropping? If you say Raleigh, I am so gonna have to go!
