Just when I thought the busyness of summer had ended, and I could breathe a sigh of relief...fall and winter events have begun to fill our calendar. It usually starts to get hectic mid-October as our wedding anniversary is the 18th. This year Noé and I celebrated 10 years of marriage (At this point I have to fib and tell people I was a "child bride" lest they think I'm old lol). I used to always think that for this milestone we would do something amazing like renewing our vows on the beach, getting me a replacement wedding/engagement ring for the one I lost 7 years ago, and possibly taking a romantic 2nd honeymoon. But alas, life had other plans for us. We did however, pass the kids off to my in-laws Saturday night so we could go on a dinner and movie date.
We also kicked off the autumn season with a trip to the pumpkin patch, and I got some of the BEST photos of the kids courtesy of my sweet hubby.
Beginning this weekend we will be inundated with harvest festivals, Halloween parties and trick-or-treating. Which of course leads to the rest of the end-of-the year holidays. I love this time of year though! Cooler weather and tons of fun activities =)
Thankfully I am still finding time to get some scrapbooking done. Yay for kids being in school and Paolina still taking an afternoon nap! One of the pages I've done this past week was for Stuck?! Sketches, and I also am linking it up to Scrap Our Stash's challenge to use the below Tic Tac Toe board. I used the top row...washi tape, 3+ buttons, chipboard
Noé is so good about always giving me flowers on my birthday and our anniversary. After getting a beautiful bouquet this past Friday it made me want to get out photos of flowers I've received in the past and get them scrapped! He gave these to me for my birthday back in 2009.
In keeping with this time of year, I pulled out some photos of Paolina in her first Halloween costume. I was inspired by a color challenge at Colorful Creations as well as the below PageMaps sketch
Thanks for checking out what I've been working on...more to come soon!
