What have I been up to....

I have had my scrapbook stuff out everyday this month.... Have I completed a page or two? Nope! But, I have created a lot of fun memories with my kids. My first project of the month were thistle spiders... Yes, these stickery weeds are good for something... We sprayed them black glued on some legs and eyes and we ended up with a fun spider! The scouts loved them!

Next, we made bean bags. They turned out so cute! One sheet of felt cut in half and folded. We ironed on the faces and sewed around them to make a darling pumpkin bean bag. I zipped around them with my sewing machine after so the beans wouldn't fall out...
Whats a bean bag without a beanbag toss game?
Then we made these fun witches and Frankensteins. I am in charge of the craft at the school Halloween party. These turned out so cute and my three year old had a blast making them with me.
And last but not least I made around 75 cupcakes for pack meeting. They turned out really cute and were super yummy!

And that's why I haven't blogged for a bit. I will be working on the Christmas book this week... Hopefully I wont have any more Halloween projects get in the way!

The leaves are just starting to turn all the pretty fall colors. So I decided to take the kids on a walk. They all had so much fun searching for the perfect leaves. When we came home I ironed the leaves between two wash clothes, then let the kids glue them in the little book I made with my Bind-it-all.
I just love the Bind-it-all. It has so many possibilities.
The kids colored the front of the book and loved how their projects turned out.
It was a great fall activity!!!
