In one week, just seven short days, this little monkey...

will be starting pre-school.

He couldn't be more excited. He's been asking to go to school since he turned two. Finally, at 3 and a half years old, he can go.
I know it's only twice a week, only 5 hours a day; but that's 10 hours he'll be gone a week. I'm going to miss my monkey man. But I also can't wait to hear all his little stories about school and his new friends.

Quick Post

Just a quick post with a few scrappies to share.

Sweet New Brothers : This layout is a little washed out in the picture. It's nicer in real life. Must have been the lighting when I took it. I adore this layout in real life. The pictures are perfection to me.

Brothers (painter's tray) : I've had this painter's tray for what's seems like forever. I didn't know what I was going to do with it. Until last month.  I knew I wanted to celebrate my boys. Once again, it looks a lot better in real life. It's proudly on display in my living room right now.

You & Me : I love this. There's nothing more I can say about it. I just simply love it.

Whoo Hoo, October!

October is one of my favourite months. I love watching the trees change colours. I love walking on crunchy leaves. I love jumping in little puddles. Yes, at 29 years old, I still jump in puddles. I'm just more choosey when I do my jumping. Normally I just jump around my house when I know I can go inside and change into dry clothes. I love the smells of Autumn that start in October. I love Halloween (although not as much as a lot of people; I just think it's a cute holiday).
I am plotting my yearly Autumn photo shoot now. Starting to think about collecting pumpkins, raking piles of leaves and setting up the hay. We're all so busy this month, I'm hoping I can get it done. If not, I have promised myself I would not get upset and just look forward to next year's photo shoot.

That being said; I scrapped some of the pictures from last year's shoot with the October kit from The Scrapping Bug. This month's kit features Apple Cider from Imaginisce. Such a cute line!

Thanksgiving Card - I've been looking at cards lately to find inspiration for Wee Man's announcements. I'm not really a card maker, so any help I can find is good. I'm hooked on this simple layout for a card. Wee Man's thank you cards are the same; just different papers.

Fall Colours - Steve and Monkey Man hanging out in a leaf pile. These pictures were taken at my parents' house. They live in a tiny village and have a lot of property. Much nicer than our place for these pictures.

I Pick U - Okay, this picture is two years old, but still from my yearly Autumn photo shoot. Love the canvas stickers in this line! Awesome texture and adorable.

My lil Pumpkin - I based this layout on a Saturday sketch from WeScrap. I think it turned out kinda cute. But I think it's the pictures that make this layout. I'm bias there.

Do you know about Ali Edward's December Daily album? Most scrappers do. Ali's announced that she's getting ready for this year's album. I tried to take part last year and didn't get past day 3 or 4. This year I want to change that. I have everything from last year still. Great way to use up all those Christmas supplies I gathered up. I'm not buying any new Christmas stuff this year. I have enough. I'm looking forward to playing along this year. Hope I don't get too caught up in the holiday season.

Until next time...
