Lil Monsters are Back...

If you need some Lil Monsters to make your Halloween special...stop by the Little Blue House and scoop some up.  As you can see from the photo, Lily, my little girl cat was fascinated with the monster making process, but not so thrilled when Mommy decided to have her wear one.  We have some really great products at the LBH, so stop by and see us.

Inspiration at The Little Blue House

Stopped by the LBH after a day of Mum Madness and "Oh My Goodness", there is so much to see.  The goblins have been working overtime and inspiration can be found everywhere you look.  I raced home - only to have my fire put out by the dreaded "dead pool pump" :(  So rather than pictures of fall and Halloween to begin projects with - I got to take this lovely photo so I could send it to several companies to get an estimate for replacement - I guess I could wrap it in cheesecloth, add a few eyeballs and turn it into a mummy ??!!

Here is a sneak peak of my Spring layout.


I can not say too much as Tracy still has a class tonight and tomorrow. All I can say is it was such fun and so relaxing. I loved all the great ideas that the project generated...can hardly wait to try a few of them. Hilary and I were so inspired we went to the bookstore and found some great old pages and a beautiful butterfly book. Have fun if you are registered to attend. Will post pictures after last Scrapstashers takes place.
