Trip Down Memory Lane...Halloweens Past

Been reminiscing lately and thought I'd share some pics from Halloweens past. These kids just grow so quickly...I don't want to forget these memories of them when they were little. Brandon is too old for Halloween now...just doesn't seem possible. Here are some pics from Halloweens past (only what I could get from digital pics...someday I'll go back and find the really old ones!)


A witch, Harry Potter and a pirate. Ally was 21 months; Max 6; Brandon, 9

Cutest Harry Potter ever!!

The princess

 Boxman, Patriots player, and Cinderella. Brandon was 10, Max 7, and Ally 2.


She loved the twirlability of this costume!

Minnie Mouse, Michael Jackson and a goary doctor. Ally 3; Max 8 And Brandon 11
Dorothy...I think this was my favorite:)

Dorothy, a Hobo, and Brandon threw on a baseball uniform and went trick or treating at the last minute. Ally 4, Max 9, and Brandon 12

2011: no good pictures :(


A nerd and Psy (from gangnam style). Ally 6 and Max 11. 

Oh if I could turn back time I'd do it in a heartbeat.

Oh my...I just love this one! I believe Ally was 2 in cute was she?? I love this Halloween fun are those embellies and patterned papers?? I have lots more ideas in mind for them...perhaps a mini album of halloween through the years? I have been wanting to do one of those for a while and this line would be perfect!

Today is my day to be introduced on the BELLA BLVD BLOG!! Head on over and check it out! Here are the two pages they are sharing over there from my submission:

Summer Afternoons: This was the first page I made when I heard about the DT call. I just love it. I love the Snapshots collection that has PL style cards. Love that "captured", love, love!!!

I had always been waiting for the perfect product...well, this was it! I am in love with these Christmas papers! They are so vibrant and fun!

Bella Blvd Warehouse Sale

I just wanted to pass this along for anyone lucky enough to live in Greenfield, WI area:

My Girl

I dug into my awesome Bella Blvd goodies this week!  I made this layout:
Ally was looking super cute one day after school so I asked her if I could take some pics and she obliged! She had to take a break from her Rainbow Loom so this was big:)  I love that you can see all her bracelets in that her right now. I had so much fun mixing some Bella lines (Kiss Me, Engaged, Playdate, and Freestyle). I made a bunch of hearts on my Silhouette in various sizes and stitched them to the layout for added texture.

Thanks for stopping by!
