Happy Halloween

Well here it is....October 31st! Halloween has never really been a favorite holiday of mine, but for the sake of my kids, I celebrate it :) This has been a busy couple of weeks for us. I was super excited to get all my Halloween cards made and sent out. 2 weeks ago our nieces came to stay with us "temporarly". One night turned into "just another night"...and before you knew it, we were almost 2 weeks into it. Our youngest niece (from this family) has autism pretty severely and requires a lot of attention. I don't mind that one bit; infact having them with us was such a joy to our family. We grew from 5 kids to 7!! Needless to say, I didn't have a lot of time to work on my Halloween cards. On Thursday (the 28th) my oldest niece asked me if I would help her make Halloween cards for her 23 classmates. AWWWWWWW was what I thought. How in the world can I pull this one off? We managed to get about 6 of them done, plus the 4 my daughter decided to make for her friends :) Thank goodness for the Dustin Pike and Bugaboo sites cause I was quickly able to find something for them to color! So, not everyone got Halloween cards from me this year but I am not too upset as Halloween is not my fav holiday, and the kids had fun making their's....
Here are a few that I got done and the ones I helped the kids make:

Elmo Chore Chart

My best friend of mine asked if I could make a chore chart for her son. He is trying to earn a Elmo Jack in the Box...So, this is what the end result looks like. At the end of each row of boxes/diamonds she can write his chores and then he can use the push pin's to mark what has been done.

Some cards recently made...

Here are a few more cards I recently made...

Here we go...

Well, this "blog" thing is all so new to me. I bounce around and look at other scrapbooker's and card maker's blog's and have decided to make my own. I am shy about adding my work to something like this because I am my own worst critic, but yet I send out my cards so I figured I'd add some stuff here as I go.
Here are a few recent cards I have made. I am making Halloween/Fall and Christmas ones right now so, hopefully soon I'll get those on here as well...
                                                   This card was for my niece who turned 4.
                                            This was a birthday card for a good friend.
