PPA59 Celebrity Color Challenge @

With the approaching CHRISTmas holidays (they really aren't long off) many folks seem to be doing the "non-traditional" colors in their CHRISTmas layouts...soooooo I think to myself (sound like Faith Hill's I am So Blessed) how about non-traditional Halloween colors to meet the "requirements" for the PPA59 challenge. I LOVE IT! I'm not so "in" to scarey movies, gothic, etc. but I do love love love the halloween stamps Stampin' Up has in the new holiday mini. Let me know what you think and thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a tremendously blessed day (I should do TREEmendously blessed day on a card or two now that we mention it......)

Gotta love FOOTBALL

What keeps a mom from stampin'?  F O O T B A L L.

Please pray that the broken ankle that was NOT a clean break (2 pieces gone astray) will NOT need surgery. His pain is not as severe as it was Friday/Saturday, it is now tolerable. The crocodile tears got to all of us....including the staff at the ER.
