Whoops, have I really been gone that long?

Not that anyone really probably even!  If you're anything like me, you just scroll through your Reader and look at the pretty pictures, amirite??

So anyway!!  I've been busy chugging along.  I had my first Anatomy exam last week...still waiting on the lecture results, but I got an "A" on my lab practical!  Pretty pleased about that.  And yesterday, my darling little princess daughter celebrated her big FOUR years!  Actually, it was a weekend long event of "celebrations", and just let me say...I am all princess'd and made-over'd out!  I also think I have eaten my weight in yummy cupcakes...goodness gracious I can't resist buttercream icing!!!

Somewhere in between kids, husband maintenance (lol?), and studying, I managed to create a little Halloween project...and even participate in a challenge (before the deadline!!) *gasp*

This was inspired from the latest Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast.  I couldn't resist doing it up Halloween style...I am SO READY for cooler weather AND for one of my most favorite "holidays."  Is it too early to go ahead and put all the decorations out? :)

I pulled out the new set from Taylored Expressions, Fangtastic.  I hadn't used that adorable witch yet so I had to get her all colored up.  You can also see the spooky tree and fence stamped in the background.  My papers, patterned and all, came straight from the Spooky Project Pantry.  I also used an oldie, but goodie set, Take Note with coordinating Take Note Die 2 to create a little frame to mount my witch on.  It works! :)

And, of course, what is Halloween without some yummy treats?  Gah, I'm such a sucker for candy corn...and LOTS of it!  Can you tell I have a small sweet tooth? :)  I used one of the Test Tubes available in the TE store at 6 for only $4.95...that comes to $.82 a piece...a good deal my friends!!  I used the Take Note and coordinating die again, but this time stamped and die cut from a large label.  That way I could just easily adhere it to my test tube treat!  That cute bat also came from the Fangtastic set...lots of fun Halloween images in that set, I just love it!

And that is it for me today.  I promise to have at least a couple more posts before the months end, lol!

I have to get back to the 206 bones in the body and their coordinating 239847329 marking and positional names.  Wish me luck! :)
