Halloween at the Zoo

I just love a good sale, especially when it comes to scrapbooking items! And I just could not help myself this week when I was in Michaels and they had all their Halloween things on clearance!! And they had some Martha Stewart border punches (that I have had my eye on for some time) on clearance!! Well... I didn't have a choice but to load up my cart!! heehee!! It was like they were paying ME to take this stuff out of the store!!! At least that is how I will explain it to my hubby!!

So, this is the LO I made with all my new goodies!! These are pictures from last year. Every year (until now) my sister and I would take our kids to the local zoo for some Halloween trick-or-treating fun!! I have SO many pictures over the years!! Don't you just adore all the sweet little Halloween creatures I added to this page!?! All of these are from K & Company!

And for this LO I used our newest sketch from Sketches In Thyme!! The sketch is one from Scrapbooks Etc. I really liked this sketch and I am sure I will be using it again!! As you can see, I had to change the amount of photos I used to accomodate the photos I liked best. But other than that, I pretty much stuck to the sketch this time!!
I love the photo of Lauren hiding behind Army man Brayden!! I guess every movie star needs a body guard!!
So... that is all I have for you!! Be sure to stop by the Sketches in Thyme blog to see what the other lovely Mavens made for you! You can also get details about the design team call going on over at Sketches in Thyme!! And, be sure to check back tomorrow!! I have some goodies I made with the left overs from these adorable papers!! And Frosted Designs has a new challenge!! Thanks for stopping in today!!
