I'm so very happy, b/c I made these cards for my little nieces and nephew for Halloween, and Creating Keepsakes website used them and a few other boo-tiful layouts/projects for their Home page!! They titled it "Boo-tiful Projects For Halloween!". I was shocked when I logged on to their site and there were my cards. This is the best Halloween treat I could receive. Thanks CK!! Here is the link to their website...

I made this Halloween garland...

My mom and I each made a Halloween garland. She's not a scrapbooker but she is crafty! We had a great time, laughing and catching up on everything. We don't get to spend much time together so it was nice to just sit and visit. I made the first one and my mom made the one she is holding.

My favorite Halloween decorations....

This is the Halloween Garland I made.

I love this Halloween pillow.

This was just a fun idea I had.

I got this "Dead Man's Dinner"
menu last year. So funny!!

I went with my sisters and their 3 kids to the pumpkin patch today and we had so much fun. Here I am with two of the three kiddo's. Ellie and Victoria, such sweet girls. I love my nieces so much!!

CKC in Kansas City.....

OK...before you say "my, my Nikki has put on some weight", please remember that I'm still swollen from my jaw surgery!! My face and jaws are huge!!
My good friend Heather and I went to the convention together and had a great time! We both won the door prizes the first night...and believe it or not I won a dog bag of "dog" themed scrapbooking products and CHOCOLATE!
Our cropping table for both nights, and we managed to have
all to ourselves!!
Here we are at the convention, day two of classes, cropping and shopping!!!

organizing bins from Lowe's. They are perfect for holding my magazines and "in progress" albums.

This was for a challenge called "Sweet & To the point", I had with some of my friends. You could only use one sheet of paper, a small journaling block, a one word title, and one picture. So this is what I came up with. The challenge was harder than you might think, simple isn't always easy. This picture was taken 2 years ago.

Sorry it's been so long.....

since my last entry. Let's see besides the fact I'm still healing from my jaw surgery, my middle brother DJ got married, we've had company twice staying with us and Dan has had to do some traveling too. I've been working hard on some layouts to get published and on my website for my new scrapbook business. (more on that later) Oh and I'm getting ready to rescue two dogs next week in KC. A male Yorkie and a Shih Tuz. I need to find homes for these 2 sweet guys. I'll post pictures when I get them. Please leave a comment if you are interested in them.
This pic is from my brothers wedding, it was in Ha Ha Tonka at the lake. My husband married them, no he is not minister! (I'm definitely not a ministers wife.) I still can't smile with an open mouth, so this is it for now. Below is a layout I just finished, getting ready for Halloween! SPOOKY......


Journaling says:
I just loved it when my 83 year old grandmother asked if I would do her make-up for her Halloween party! “Of course” I said. I even got her to wear one of my Halloween wigs. My Nan, looked great when she left my house. Her friends didn’t even recognize her. She giggled and had so much fun as a blonde witch!
