*phew* catching up :)

Hi everyone! :)

I took a little break to my "Alphabet Stash" challenge I placed on myself a couple of months ago due to DT assignments and having a VERY VERY VERY busy October ... each weekend was FILLED to capacity of activities ... so this weekend I was FINALLY able to get back in the game :)

I pulled out some older Crate papers and played along with some challenges :) 

This first one is for Frosted Designs latest challenge which was to use TAGS on your page :)  I took some manila tags that I had and covered them in Crate paper :) 




2 tags :)




3 more tags :)






 
Then I played along with Let's Get Sketchy's latest sketch :)

Here is their sketch :)


 


And my take on it :) 








And as I stated above ... it was another busy busy busy weekend at the Tucker-Wolek household!! :)


Adam caught the creative bug and created these jack-o-lanterns out of Soda Cans!! :)



Then on Saturday we went to "Wild Western Festival" :)


Brookie in the black hat petting a horse :)





I think I have yet to meet a child that DOESN'T like the bouncy houses :)



In the pink petting the "dolphin" :)







Me and my shadows *wink* :)




They had an animals group there and they brought this beauty ... lol!! :)





 Brookie making a paper mustache :)







Ohhhhh and I also decorated a pumpkin for a contest at work this weekend :) 


My team decided to do a Minion theme from the movies "Despicable Me" :) 


So each team member got to decorate their "Minion" on their own :) 

Here is mine :) 



I do "Chargeback's" at my work ... so I am the Chargeback Minion :)






Ohhhhhh and ONE more thing I made this weekend with Brian and Brookie's help  :)

I had some older Halloween papers and some Halloween SRM Stickers that Juliana sent me and I made clean and simple Halloween treat bags for my 22 co-workers and 16 for Brookie's classmates :)







Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
