This week's RCS inspiration was the Disney movie "Hocus Pocus."  I love this movie....One of the places on my bucket list to visit is Salem, Massachusetts.  I find the Salem Witch Trials so incredibly fascinating yet saddening....(That's the history teacher in me coming out).  Two years ago, my daughter went as a witch for Halloween.  I adored her costume.  Everything about it was what I envision a good witch wearing.  So when I saw the theme was "Hocus Pocus," I knew exactly what picture I was going to use for this project!  The paper is from Doodlebug's "Halloween Parade" line. Everything about this paper line screamed this picture of my daughter.

This is my latest layout for Child's Play Challenge. Our inspiration this week was wood stringing beads. I know beads come in different shapes, but to me, beads are circles.  And right now, when I think of circles, I think of soccer balls.  My daughter just played her last soccer game of the season last week, and I wanted to do a layout with her kicking the ball down the field.  So I felt that this paper, these embellishments, and my pictures fit the bill for a wood stringing bead challenge!

This is my latest design for 2 Broke Girls Scrap.  I can't tell you enough how awesome this blog is!  If you haven't checked out their webpage, I highly recommend heading over there!  The sketches are so beautiful and easy to recreate.  This is my interpretation of Sketch 24.  My husband took this picture of my daughter and I at our favorite restaurant in Panama City, Florida on the last day of our trip.  You can't see it in this picture, but we are sitting right on the Gulf of Mexico watching the surf roll in eating dinner.  I think it captured the moment perfectly...We are happy.  And sketch 24's design allowed for this picture to be displayed exactly as I envisioned it!

This is my latest layout for RCS.  The inspiration was the movie "Bicentennial Man" so we were asked to include metal on our layout in some way.  I have to admit, one of my favorite things to do is to look through the $1 bin at Michael's.  A few months back, I found these adorable metal owl charms.  I love owls, so I had to buy them.  I figured one day they would have a use....And I was right!  My daughters & I went to a Harry Potter Party at Barnes and Noble the year the last book was released.  And part of the party was an owl show, so my charms worked perfectly for this layout.  The other picture is my daughter getting "sorted" into her house.  Fortunately, no Slytherin for her!  Shew!
