It was a chilly weekend here in Manitoba. The lake turned out to be a little less fun than anticipated, as we were quite chilly for the most part. I didn't even bother to walk down to the beach. Needless to say, we packed it in and came home on Sunday afternoon. A little disappointing, as the time away didn't unfold as I had anticipated. We still enjoyed the pig roast, and the steak dinner, albeit in the rain for both, but gaming, and relaxing with a good book simply is not the same when one cannot stop shivering. The girls also missed Halloween (something they do at the lake every September Long Weekend). The good news is, that D and I made a little game of Halloween here, at home, instead. The girls got dressed up, well the younger two anyway, and went searching all over the basement for a few treats we had hidden.
|T was convinced these capris were appropriate Cowgirl fashion.|
|E was a Hula girl :) This was the costume she wore for her Surfin' Safari number at The Manitoba Dance Festival.|
I did manage to finish setting up my scrap space. I've added a couple more Jet Max storage units, an Expedite, and some cute boxes. Now I just need to get some things up on the wall, and it will actually feel more like home. Here are a couple of layouts I pulled together on Sunday night.
|Celebrating a sparkly night out with friends. Used the December Nook kit featuring MME|
|Added to the design by stitching a circle around the photo, also effectively holding the alphas in place.|
|I trimmed one of the chipboard banners, and added Stickles, and MME brads to the Maya Road snowflakes.|
|Celebrating Isabelle's first year in Jazz class. Used papers, and trim from the Sept Studio Calico Boardwalk kit.|
|Flower made from Pink Paislee mistable trim. I used Studio Calico Bluegrass Mr. Huey, and added a smaller AC trim flower topped with a Crate brad.|
|I wanted a quilt look, so I stitched the squares with my machine|
|I stitched the letters on to prevent them falling off. I really dislike the fact that AC alphas don't hold their adhesive.|
