Last Day for October Specials and Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! To make your day complete (okay, to make my day complete), here are photos of our grandkids in their costumes for this year!

Our daughter, Kori and her family always choose a family theme for their costumes each year. I love their Wizard of Oz theme this year!

The only way Daysha could get Sage to wear this was to tell her she was a Princess Pirate. The only way she could get her to take photos was by letting her be silly.  This little munchkin is headstrong...a perfect little pirate princess.
Oh, and here are a couple of Dan and I before a Halloween party last night. Don't judge Dan's costume.  It really is just his hunting clothes, but since it's the first time he's dressed up since he was a kid, I'll take it.

Thanks for humoring me.  Now on to the real reason for today's post:  this is it; the last day to take advantage of October's awesome specials. As a reminder, here they are:

Wedding Sign In Book for Kira and Maihi

Opening page of Kira and Maihi's Wedding Sign-In Book

Daysha's sister, Kira is getting married in less than 2 weeks, and she and her fiance', Maihi asked me to create their wedding sign in book. I was happy to comply!  How could this book be less than fabulous when the photos I had of these 2 beautiful people were so stunning?

I have kind of started a tradition with these books. I have done them for each of my children as they have gotten married, for several of my nieces and nephews for their weddings, and for three of Daysha's sisters as well (just one more to go in that family!).

The opening and closing pages are left unsigned.  All of the 2-page layouts are for signing when the guests arrive.  It's so much fun to see all of that blank space get filled up with love!  In the past, several people have asked me how it all works, so I'll explain.  As with most weddings, there is a table with a sign-in book as you enter. Instead of writing your name on a line in a book, you get to write a message and sign it on the pages of this book. We take two 2-page layouts out of the protectors in the book at a time and lay them on the table. When those pages fill up, we slide them back in their protectors in the book and get out the next 2 layouts, and so on.  By the end of the event, the book is full of love and is a perfect keepsake for the bride and groom.

Kira's colors are black, white, pink and gold. She's going for kind of an Audrey Hepburn feel at her wedding and this theme was so much fun to work with!

One of my favorite things I did in this book was using the "Beautiful You" Picture My Life Cards and cutting them up! I used them as banners, accents, and even just as is.  Cool Beans!

I've included a list of all of the products I used at the end of this post, complete with photos and links for your convenience. You can order all of these products on my website.

Twinkle Christmas Card

In less than a week, October 2015 is history.  Don't let it pass you buy before getting the October Stamp of the Month - Twinkle. It's darling and perfect for holiday projects and cards.  I created the standard size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card I'm sharing today with this set.

Note: This card could be for just about anything by substituting the "twinkle" word you see on my card with a sentiment you have in another set. You know, like "Happy Birthday" or  "You're a Star!" or "Congratulations!"  All of  those would work great on this card, as would so many more!

Not only is this a cute card, but it's a simple one too!  I have listed all products used at the end of this post, complete with photos and links to them on my website for your convenience.

October Stamp of the Month - Twinkle (carrier sheet actual size is approx. 6" x 6")

Back to the October Stamp of the Month. It is only $5 ($12.95 savings) with every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax). Spend $100, get 2...and so on.  When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before checking out.
