Glamour-Ween and Ookie Spookie!

Danyale has 2 - count 'em 2! -- new releases today. I have only had a chance to play with one, but it was so much fun and I can't wait to get my hands on the other.

The one I haven't played with is called Ookie Spookie and is full of fun Halloween elements:

Isn't that so cute?  I have some cute pics of Maggie dressed for Halloween that I can see scrapping with this (if I get them scanned) and John's dino costume from last Halloween would look super cute with the green, black and kraft color scheme.  In fact, I may just put that on my to-do list for tomorrow, after all my work is finished!  There is also some super cute word art to match this kit.

The kit I did get to play with is called Glamour-ween.

Danyale created this with a more grown-up, glam feel and it absolutely makes me want to dress up this year! In fact, that's what my page is about.  For the first time in a while, I feel like dressing up with my kids for Halloween.  Now, if only I could convince my husband to dress up too, we could do something cute and matching, like S'mores or the suits in a deck of cards.

We'll see if I can find scrapping time tomorrow to play with Ookie Spookie, as much as I want to.  I was derailed in my productivity today by some delicious brownies, and I may spend all day eating them...

Autumn Walk and Autumn Nights

I need to work on blogging more regularly! If I was thinking about it, I would pre-load a blog post when I go post my pages for my designers. But that would make a little too much sense, now wouldn't it!

Danyale (Etc by Danyale) has a new kit out today, and one that came out last week that I missed.  First, this week's kit, Autumn Walk.

I've been in a bit of a scrapping slump.  I don't know whether it was because I was focused on designing so much this summer, or the change to our school schedule, or whether it was something entirely unrelated, but I have had a hard time sitting down to scrap.  Then this kit came along.
Also uses Gimme Layers Lite Vol 7 by Cluster Queen Creations (template), and an action by Pioneer Woman on the photos...can't remember which one though.  Sorry!
I sat down and cranked out "Read to Me" pretty quickly, and knew I wanted to make Tree Hugger the same night, but couldn't stay up any longer to finish it. Tree Hugger was the first thing I did when I sat down at the computer the next day.

Last week's kit, Autumn Nights, also helped me get out of my slump.
I fell in love with this kit as soon as Danyale started posting her progress on it. But when it came out I was in the middle of my slump and just couldn't think of anything to make with anything!  I should have tried working with it then...I might have come out of my low point faster.  But when I finally did sit down to play with it, WOW!
It gave me the chance to play with this photo from a year ago.  One year ago, we were in the middle of our move from Wyoming to Colorado, and this photo is John playing in our empty house, waiting for the movers to bring all our furniture.  I used an action by Pioneer Woman on the photo (maybe Seventies?...I don't remember), and also used the word art that matches the kit. I hope to have a chance to play with this kit a little more, as there are some great papers in there that I didn't get to use (or use much of!).

Here's hoping I can get to blogging more often this Fall!
