Halloween Early ? Oh, No!!!!

Yes, they all came a day early! Last night when we got home all the streets in our housing area were cordoned off with yellow crime tape and all the streets were blocked to through traffic. Dozens and dozens of children out walking.
We had to get the security guard to lift the yellow tape for us to drive under.
We'd been at the high school library since my DH has to open it for the community twice a week in the evenings. I don't know why they didn't send notice to ALL the school teachers about the early trick or treating.
The elementary school at the end of our housing was having it's yearly halloween carnival and that's why all the trick or treaters. We went through all of our candy. I'm not driving to town to buy more, so hopefully we won't have any trick or treaters tonight.

Freaky Weekend

This was definitely a freaky Weekend. Friday night was especially eventful. I was on the computer when my son, Andrew started screaming. Now, this is my 19 year old son! There was this 6 inch Tarantula walking across the diningroom floor. Both of our hearts are beating hard. Andrew could have pasted as a ghost - his face was pure white.

We threw a tupperware container over it. And then when my son was trying to get it into a more permanent container, another blood curdling scream came out. Our black Labrador, Susie, had quietly come up beside Andrew to see what was happening and scared him to death.

7 Hour Layout - REVEALED finally!

Here's my layout that took 7 hours to create. This is my daughter, Rachel!

I've been asked what size this is. It's two 12x12 pages. I had to slice down the middle of the third photo to get it to span both sides.

7 Hours - I think that's a record

I spent 7 hours on a 2 pager layout yesterday. Wow! I don't think that's ever happened before. Usually I average 1-2 hours on each. The one that I worked on last night was a mosaic. It was for a challenge over on Scrappy Jo and until they reveal the layouts there I can't post it here. As soon as I can, I'll post it and let you see my masterpiece.

I couldn't come up with a name and don't know if it even needs one. When you see it, let me know your ideas.
