My mom and I took the girls and my sister to "Fashion Farm" last Friday for a day of pumpkin picking, hayriding, maze finding, art display! It was such a cool little place. The neatest thing about this farm is the tour they have where pumpkins and gourds of all shapes and sizes have been put together, painted, and formed to make fairy tale stories and other fun things. They even had a "Dolly Parton" pumpkin LOL! It was great! Here are some of my favorite shots from our trip:

I spent an interesting day in the ER today. I started with chest pains early this morning. Chad and I dropped the girls off at a friends house and went to the hospital. I have mitre valve prolapse so anytime I have a heart problem I need to go. Well, I was there for around 7 hours while they ran tests. When I first came in I had elevated levels of something (I forgot the term!) in my blood which meant the heart was in distress. They needed to wait 4 more hours to run the test again and the levels has fortunately went down. WHEW! Had I of known that they would be checking my pulse regularly ON MY ANKLES I would have shaved for crying out loud. I kept apologizing, hoping I wasn't cutting their hands with my prickly beasts. So it is good to be home now!

I also wanted to share some of my Papertrunk layouts. Carrie's product is just wonderful to work with and she is such a sweetheart :) :) :)

Thank You Paper Trunk!

So my amazing talented friend Carrie Postma (owner and designer of Paper Trunk)has graciously asked me to be one of her guest designers for the month of October! She has designed 2 fabulous paper lines as well as a stamp line. You can check out her company here Paper Trunk Blog I am thrilled to work with her product this month! And for some reason the picture I posted above came out wonky! Gotta love computers, hmph.

I managed to score a publication with Scrapbook Trends for February 2008. I thought I had been blacklisted LOL! I haven't had a pub with them for A WHILE now. So that made me happy!

Nothing much new here on the homefront. I just got back from one of Hanna's soccers games...I am STILL thawing out. It was FREEZING! And of course I went to the grocery store several hours earlier in flip flops and capri sweats LOL! Yes, I went to the game dressed like this too. Not.Too.Bright.Tina!
