Spooktacular Halloween!

Hello everyone and
welcome to my
"Spooktacular Halloween" 
Ah Halloween, Trick-or-treat, the one day a year
when it is OK to eat to much yummy candy
and dress up at the same time!
 Well before the spooky fun begins I would
like to share this years Halloween card and treat box
with you all!
The "Skeleton Lady" or
"Dame Squelette".
 Scary pretty!

 Fence and corner was cut with Cricut cartridge
"Potions and Spells". 
Skeleton Lady by Stampendous!
 The minute I laid eyes on this stamp I
know I needed to have it.
It's so New Orleans cemetery, Voodoo
and Marie Laveau.
 Dame Squelette out for a stroll!
 The toxic good treat boxes.
 All stamps used in the treat boxes are from
Stampin'Up! set "Toxic Treats".

 All filled with candy and lined up for delivery
to ghosts and goblins.

Witching you all a safe and

Thanks for stopping by!

Road Trip!

Hello everyone,
I hope you all having a great weekend!
First I need to apologies for running
a little behind on posting anything
but I have a great excuse
"Fall Break"
a so needed and well deserved
Fall is the time for us to head south,
spend some time with family and friends,
and get some well deserved RNR!
And heading south means going home to
Louisiana, St. Tammany and 
the beautiful North Shore of Lake Pontchartrain!
 This year we were fortunate that the cabins at
reopened after they were destroyed by Hurricane Issac 
and we were able to rent one of the cabins right on/in the lake. 
 A little peace of paradise on the North Shore.
 I took a few books and my knitting along
but I have to admit neither reading nor knitting got done,
the magic and peacefulness of this place just captures you,
you just sit and try to soak it all in. 
 And we did a little kayaking...
 ... fishing at sunrise...
...and crabbing.
Don't worry, Mr. Crab was released after
his picture was taken!
I don't think he is smiling!
 The cabins.
There even is a little beach in the park.
Magical Live Oaks everywhere.

 And no trip home is complete unless we stop 
in the "Big Easy".
Lee Circle with the Super Dome in the background.
 If you ever in New Orleans you should take the time to stop
at the WWII museum.
We spent all day and I think we still missed a few exhibits.
 And last but not least,
one of my favorite things
the "St. Charles Trolley". 

Sadly we are back home,
back to work and school,
but we are always looking forward to our next
road trip 

To ya'll a wonderful weekend
and a great week!
Thanks for stopping by!
