September Garden Digest... late

So I'm totally late... again! I totally thought the hop was tomorrow--until I started checking people's blogs! haha--that's just me--always behind!

Sooo anyways....

I have a card I made for Finally Friday a couple weeks ago--it's fun, and totally Halloweeny!

And guess what??!! There's a video to go with it!

I was totally inspired when I saw Marcy's darling layout for the fall theme. Look at those leaf silhouettes!! Gah. So stinkin' cute--and I love how she sewed over her chipboard letters! Totally darling!

( I just placed an order with ALL of these items in them! I'll be showing off some layouts featuring them soon! ) Click on the picture to see how to buy.

Wanna win something really fun?? Just leave me a comment including your favorite fall/halloween tradition and you will be entered into a drawing to win....

Getting into the swing...

Now that school is getting going, we are still trying to get some things figured out. The staff at Logan's school needs to be trained on Diabetic care. It's taking FOREVER! And I have to go to the school 3-4 times a day to test his blood and give him insulin until they get the training done. Hopefully it will be soon. I was at the school half the day on Friday.

But, I did finally get to scrap those cute back to school photos! Here's a layout I did for the Garden over at 2peasinabucket.

I mostly used Echo Park Toy Box collection on here. Added in a little Kraft paper, some Hero Arts Stamps, buttons, and some stickers. (Go HERE to see other supplies and how to buy them.)

I'm already starting my To-do list for Halloween. I know it's early, but you can never be too prepared! haha Pinterest has made my list VERY very long! haha Here's a couple projects I'll be working on:

Have a wonderful night!

Life with three boys...

man, does it get crazy sometimes. I swear I would lose my head if it wasn't attached to my body... on second thought--I lose my mind all the time. So I guess it doesn't really matter if it's attached or not! ;)

Life has been crazy busy this past week--Logan
started first grade. Which has been a struggle. Not neccessarily because he is gone all day for the first time, but because no one is trained yet at his school to help him with his Diabetes. I have to go to the school 3 times a day to check his blood and give him insulin--and I get to drag Landen and Cooper with me. So that's been a little stressful. Hopefully the staff will be trained this week so that we can get a routine going for him.

logan in line 


Landen is really excited to start preschool this week--I think he is going to LOVE it! Plus he will get to see Grandma Smith everyday--so that is a big plus! 

And I have a fun Finally Friday video for you that I created for TwoPeasinaBucket. Go HERE to check it out with all the supplies.

 And here's my video:


Thanks for stopping by! I know I'm not the best blogger--but it does make me feel good when people still drop by! :)
