Anyway you look at it....Halloween is fun. You get to dress up and be whoever you want. You get to take a little break from reality and you get rewarded for doing so....with treats. Halloween isn't just for the kiddos either. I like to look back at past Halloweens where I had the chance to dress-up in costumes. Last Halloween I was Wonder Woman. Two years before that I was a Pirate, the year before that I was a Cop and the year before that I was Eve from the Garden of Eden. I've had SO much fun over the years of getting to dress-up. I won't be dressing up this year though....this year is just for the kids. Are you dressing up? If so, what are you going to be?

Scrap it and submit it over at The Pink Ninjas blog. The #22 Prompt is Costumes. Here's what I created: This is also for Mon Scrapbook's current sketch challenge. The winner for that challenge will get a $20 gift certificate to an online scrapbooking store. Go on over and check them out for your chance to win!

Mission 0002 and if you were a cartoon character....

Mission Create has another awesome challenge brewing and I managed to use all concepts given again. I used cork alphas for my title "Boo to you!" and as you can tell it is a Halloween themed page. I used the colors orange, green & purple and I stamped the owl image and cut my photo into 2 seperate wallet sized photos. Pretty clever eh? Go on over and check out the challenge. The winner this month will get a prize from Rosa over at The Paper Passion.
p.s. This layout is of my daughter Deja (the Pirate) and her friend on Halloween a couple of years ago 2007.

Also, The Pink Ninjas newest prompt is....Prompt #20-

This one was EASY for me! LOL

Mission 001

There's a NEW Challenge Blog out there that I discovered the other day called MISSION CREATE. It looks to me like they are on a mission to INSPIRE in a serious but fun way! Go on over and check them out and participate in their very first Challenge to support them will ya?! We all know that we get our layouts done because of Challenge's one more fun way to complete layouts!

Here's my take to their first Challenge. I used all the concepts given by the Creative Team. My title is 6 WORDS "Duty to God and my country." I used a GLITTER brad (the yellow one in-between the word "Duty"). I followed their SKETCH.... ....and I used PATTERNED PAPER FROM MORE THAN JUST 3 DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS and here's what I came up with....

I give credit where it's due and on top of getting inspired to create a layout by MISSION CREATE I was also really very inspired by an artist named Celine Navarro and I scraplifted her for this Challenge as well. She is A-ma-zing!!! I completely got my mojo back after visiting her blog. Check her out and see just what I mean. View those videos she has on there too will ya. It will surely put a smile on your face! Oh's the layout I scraplifted from her.... Didn't I tell you she was bad a$$?! I told you!

Favorite Drink

Yes, I like Pina Colada's and getting caught in the rain. I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne.

The Pink Ninja's Challenge Blog has a Prompt up for you to scrap your fav. drink and mine happens to be Frozen Pina Colada's. Whenever I go out to eat or am near a place that has them I just have to have one. No if's, and's, or butt's about it!

I'm not sure how it all started but I do admit that I act quite spoiled about it all. I'm just glad my husband doesn't mind that much. He understands that he has has cigs....and I need my Pina Colada's. LOL So, I don't complain about all the packs he buys and he doesn't complain about all the cups I buy. ;) Win-Win!

Head on over to the Pink Ninja's Challenge Blog and let us all know what your favorite drink is. Whether it's coffee, hot chocolate, soda, kool-aid, lemonade or even beer! We wanna know!

I have a few Announcements to stuff into this 1 post tonight....

For one.....your going to see my butt jumping through the air doing some kick a$$ ninja moves cause Ninja now baby! I made it on the team! Woohoo! Expect to see some funky layouts from me for this. My eclectic side is all over this one! Here's my Pink Ninja photo....
Okay, stop laughing! LOL I took a lot of $#!% from my husband already because of it. I didn't think he was going to walk into the bathroom while I had our toddler daughter's too small of a tutu up up one of my legs (because it was too small to fit around me) and covering myself in my 10 year old daughter's pink make-up gook. LOL I swear, he thought I had finally lost it! I had to explain to him (after I finally stopped laughing embarrassingly at myself) that it was simply just for a photo for a New Design Team that I made it on. LOL The things I envision....and the way it slaps me in the face when I least expect it to. LOL Oh well! Check me out on The Pink Ninja's Challenge Blog here.
