Nothing Scary About BoB Boo Crew!

Two weeks to Halloween! Do your kids have costumes picked out. Are you sewing them? When I was a kid we found things around the house to make our costumes. One of my favorite memories is helping my brother make his Invisable Man costume. However, we cut up what we thought was an "old" white sheet to do it. Mother was not too happy with us!! (LOL)

We don't really do Halloween in our family. First, Kyle is anti-candy. The boy likes his apples and melon. Abby, on the other hand, loves candy, but is quite prone to caviities. She finds Halloween night too scary - and wants nothing to do with trick-or-treating. I figure that helps our dental budget. ;-) She does have a winged unicorn costume handed down by the neighbors. She's been wearing it for weeks - the girl is big time into unicorns, just like I was as a kid!

I created this fun layout for Magistical Memories October challenge, which is to incorporate a "tic tac toe" theme, and of course either chipboard or acrylic shapes. Want to participate? Upload your layout here, and you may win some fabulous Magistical Memories chipboard!

The layout "just happens" to also fit the bill for A Cherry On Top's October Supply challenge. I love working my layouts to pick up a couple of challenges on the boards here and there.

BoBunny's Boo Crew collection can definitely extend past the Halloween theme, as shown in "Head to Toe" above. Abby loves the colors - especially purple. When I asked, she wanted red and purple in this layout, so here we have it. If it works when you turn 50 and put on a new hat, it works for the girl turning 7 as well. (LOL)
