Not just for halloween.

Today I finished my first project for the Daisy & Dandelion blog. I will post pics once it's ok to do so.
I had a lot of fun doing this and was actually quite dreading it. Halloweens not something I've ever been into and here in Australia there's not too many others that are either.
I will say I used a little Vampire on it...I couldn't help myself. I bought the Twilight book last week and couldn't put it down. I hired the movie yesterday and I have to say that I wasn't as impressed with that as the book - although I did have to watch it again today :)
So Friday I was straight off to the bookshop again to purchase the 2nd one. I did ban myself from touching it this weekend though, because I've completely neglected everything else I should have been doing the past week.
I couldn't help myself , and at 11.30 last night I started it. I did make myself put it down at about 1.30am but I could have stayed in bed reading all night.

I've also put this page together using some of the Halloween products that Erica sent me but the layout is not based on Halloween.

The photo is of Jordy, taken in Adelaide a few years ago. I've wanted to scrap this for ages but just couldn't find the right papers to put with it. As soon as I got Ericas parcel I know the papers were perfect for this pic.

I've used the Daisy & Dandelion, Pumpkin & Aubergine trick or treat paper pad, a cute Aubergine die cut and a journal spot from the Little Book of Mischief, in the same range and a piece of Papermania couture ribbon.

So this is my page...Tiger? or Pussy Cat?
I've also been losing track of all my blogging and missing Facebook the last couple of weeks.
We are still in the process of changing internet providers and still on dial up. Our ADSL2 was supposed to be ready to go by friday, but not luck...I will catch up eventually. It's just so frustrating to have to wait 5 to 10 minutes every time I need a page to load.

That's a great page Rossy, and I am pretty sure he wouldn't want to be known as a pussycat.
By the way I can now see where you get your makeup tips from :)

Great page Ros, the D&D papers work so well. Can't wait to see what you've made for your halloween project. Halloween is bigger than it used to be over here but I've not really bothered with it in years so I thought I'd be a bit stumped. Once I got into the swing I actually got quite carried away with myself!!

Hey there Ros, and how cool is that LO and gorgeous vibrant colours.Looking forward to seeing what you have created for them.
LOL about the Twilight books.I read all four while in Hospital.I couldn't get the last one till my Mum and Sister came down, so I would harp on my fave nurse to tell me, but she would just zip her lip and say nothing the big meanie.But aren't they AWESOME reads.I see Simonne is hooked in too.So is my friend Jackie up the road.I am expecting hate mail in my box sometime soon, cause she isn't doing anything but read...hehe
