It's all about the candy!

Happy Friday everyone! I don't know about all of you but my house is going to have a VERY busy weekend! But, before I get to that, I want to share Frosted Designs new challenge with you! It's all about food and candy! We are asking you to use food and/or candy in your card, layout or project! You can use photos that include food, images/stamps of food or projects that include food! You choose!! Here is the layout that I created.....

We have the cutest little candy store here in McKinney that Lauren loves to go to. I couldn't resist snapping a few photos the last time we were in there!!

Now.... about my busy weekend! Tonight, Lauren is having a Halloween party at our house! We have been very busy getting things ready and I thought I would share a few photos with all of you!

This is our table in our foyer.

Lauren and I made these darling little coffins filled with candy and then Lauren and her friend made the mummy soda bottles!

Lauren and I had a great time adding webs to the inside of the house! And the good news is.... there really is no need to clean! The messier the better!!

It is not showing up well in the photo but I found this darling Haunted House.... the perfect decoration!

I hope you and your families enjoy the weekend!

The Graduates!

Wow! I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted something! I have been so busy with some of my design team responsibilities that I haven't taken the time to update my blog! I promise to do better!!  lol!! Well, it is Friday and that means that we have a new challenge for you at Frosted Designs! This week is a recipe challenge!! I love those kind of challenges! If you go to the Frosted Designs site, you can find out what the recipe is!! Here is the layout I created using the recipe....

This layout is of my daughter and two of her best friends on graduation day. I wanted to make something that didn't involve school colors or look like school type paper. I am pleased with the way this turned out! Now it is your turn! We would love to see what you can create for our recipe challenge! And the best part is, we have an amazing prize we are giving away! Be sure to join in on the fun for a chance to win!! 

Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by my blog!
