If Halloween Is Here, Can Winter Be Far Behind?

Is today really Halloween?  Well, I guess the kids will go trick-or-treating with the un-altered Macy's shopping bags again this year.  I can hear people, ahem Aubree, scold me for not spending a buck or two to pick up something Halloween-ey for the kids to carry.  I know the neighbors will affably laugh at their Macy's bags again.  No matter, I don't think the kids will care and this mother certainly does not! 

Last winter, I got my DSLR, so I have a lot of relatively decent winter photos.  However... I find it very difficult to scrap winter photos, even when they are relatively good.  I don't know... we get six months of winter every year, it's just depressing.  However, I did get up some courage a while ago and scrapped this page of Second Child walking in the snow in our yard. I used the Boy and Dog, Snow Adorable stamp from My Favorite Things.

Do you miss Collage Press? I do, terribly!  I hope they will come back.  I am here waiting...  Meanwhile, my CP stash is deep and wide.  After all, I did buy two of everything of their last collection: Joyride :)
It's almost time...  I'd better go dig out those Macy's shopping bags...

If you go to Target tomorrow, you can get some Halloween bags on clearance for next year. ;-)

And dangit, I must order some of those stamps. They are just way too cute! Adorable LO, as usual!

Ditto on snagging some clearance bags at Target, heh...
Yes, I miss CP so much...love how you've used that circular CP accent as a title here...love the strip of brads in different colors too, and that stamp set is really adorable!

I love the pink, red and blue in your layout! And I don't know, Macy's bags hold LOTS of candy. And easier to get into than those plastic pumpkins!

Sue said...

Jing-jing, unaltered Macy bags? Surely you can slap on a couple of Halloweeny decor on them? :D

Love your layout, as always. And yes, I love CP too. Are they not producing anymore?

I just love how your little snow person matches your real life snow person. I just got some MFT stamps in the mail....I am in LOVE!

Christie Bryant said...

Such a cute layout! I miss CP too!
I'm sure your girls don't care about the bags...when I was young, my mom used to give us pillow cases. We've come a long way since then. :-)

Love those MFT stamps! Gonna have to place an order! Do you get commission? bbwwahaha

Belinda said...

So cute! :) Love the fun layout! I don't think I was crafting when they were around... (hmm, I remember going around trick or treating with a plastic bag from the grocery store....no scolding from me and I think the kids just care about the candy. Heh, I feel like winter started late this year so maybe it's only 5 months rather than 6. :)

Charlene said...

Scold you? I have never.....ok, maybe just a bit. Hope your girls were given something festive -- at least spray paint the bags orange or something!!! LOL.
