witches and ghouls

 Happy Monday! I'm getting this up a little late, as my husband and I took our first empty nester trip to NYC last week.  We did a LOT of walking and really enjoyed seeing the city!  I especially enjoyed seeing the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the MoMA.  It's kind of hard to come back to real life, lol!

 It's almost October and the BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks is a witches and ghouls theme.  I had lots of fun making this layout and adding all the Halloween elements!  The mouse with the witch's hat in the corner from the Happy Hauntings collection was my favorite.  There are SO many fun choices for Halloween, it was hard to narrow down what to choose, but the mouse was a definite!  You can see the design team projects over at the BBTB2 site and link up a project too.  Hope you all have a good week!

Thankful for you layout for the grandparents challenge

 Happy Monday!  Our BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks is all about grandparents.  While I do not have any living grandparents, I have some aunts and uncles who fill that role in my life.  (My mom was a surprise baby who had four older siblings who were grown with children of their own before she was even born. So my aunts and uncles are the age of most people's grandparents and my cousins are my mom's age.). We took a road trip to visit some of those aunts, uncles, and cousins this summer.  I got to see my aunt and uncle who are both 95 years old!  I was very thankful to get to see them, knowing it might be the last time.  I found the thankful for you title by searching on Cricut Access and some happy feeling paper to convey the joy in the visit.   I'm looking forward to seeing all the submissions for this challenge over at the BBTB2 site!
