Is it fall or winter???

It is that time of year when it cools down, leaves change and the fun holidays roll around. I love the changing leaves, atleast until they fall in my yard! With that being said, I've been picking up acorns and raking leaves, absolutely amazed at how much can come out of a few trees! It could be worse though, back in Iowa where I am from they are facing snow today, how is that possible? They are skipping right past fall this year and straight into winter.

My son is so excited for Halloween this year, or should I say he is excited to go trick or treating. We are marking off days on the calendar, but he still thinks that it should be here already. I have to agree... I'm ready for it too!

This image is from the Spooky Boys stamp set from The Angel Company. I colored with copics and did plenty of embossing and playing with the Scor-Bug... I am so loving that thing! I already loved my Scor-Pal, but this little tool brings it to a new level.
