Lots of fun stuff going on!

Fun thing #1: I am excited to let you all know that I am part of a brand spankin' new challenge blog! My friend Ellen came up with the idea that it would be fun to look to the future more in our scrap the future, our dreams, challenges, changes, especially since we find ourselves scrapping the past so often. I'm really excited about being a part of this, and I love that it will give me the motivation to scrap more about myself, as I think it will be cool for my kid's to look back and read what my goals and dreams were, etc. So, without further ado, the new site is called Forward Progress. The blog has officially launched, but we're still in the setting up stages - our first challenge/prompt will be coming mid-November. So, stay tuned!

Fun thing #2: Luxe is doing 13 Halloween projects in 13 days on their blog. In addition to getting some cool Halloween inspo, you can also purchase the mega value Luxe Limited Kits (for just $13) that they've created. Last but not least, they'll be doing a big giveaway on Halloween. You can check all this out here.

Fun thing #3: Fancy Pants is releasing two new lines, and they are awesome!! I can't wait to get my hands on these! The new lines will be shipping out starting November 1st, and you can win some of this yumminess on the Fancy Pants blog.

Fun thing #4: Speaking of Fancy Pants, this is the first DT layout i've made for Fancy Pants. I so love this line - I used the All Fall line (chipboard, papers and buttons) and also used their Spooky Tree glitter cut and their rub-on alphas. The tree was actually a little shorter then I needed it to be, so I chopped off the bottom and added it below my photos.
Fun thing #5: I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is the Featured Layout over at Two Peas today :-)

Hope everyone is having a great week - the end is near!
