If you’re not already a member of Vocalpoint, you should really check it out! It’s a free program designed to advertise products via word of mouth. They send free samples and coupons out every so often and surveys occasionally as well. I LOVE them! It’s not a points or cash earning opportunity, just a chance to try new products and get coupons.

To join go here:

Just this morning, Autumn had a bowl of frosted mini-wheats for breakfast that came in the mail yesterday along with coupons. (You can also learn from Vocalpoint-I had no idea that a bowl of mini-wheats with milk had the same amount of protien and fiber as an egg and two slices of whole wheat toast!)

Lovin’ a day out with Daddy. Totally stole the idea for this photo from my friend Kim.

Great free wildlife park we visited to see the birds of prey (we’re studying them in pre-school).

Gotta love BOGO sales with coupons!

2 boxes Teddy Grahams
2 cans Almonds
2 jars Premium Peaches
2 jars Skippy Peanut Butter
10 boxes Frozen Marinated Fish Fillets

cost: $5.21
tax: $1.17

Having so much fun with this kit this month! Click on the photo above to purchase!

Beautiful Day

I used some VERY imperfect photos of myself, and my little brother and sister on this layout. The olive dot grosgrain added a perfect touch to pull the colors and patterns together.

Supplies: Scenic Route and October Afternoon papers, Fern printed place card, Autumn Leaves stamp, Elle’s Studio card, various buttons, AC thickers in foam and vinyl

Picture Perfect

I used saffire grosgrain, oatmeal lace, and olive grosgrain from the kit on this layout of the St. Augustine lighthouse.

Other Supplies: October Afternoon paper and journaling card, MM journaling page, AC thickers, raffle ticket, Target journaling spots

The Girls

Just a bit of the oatmeal lace here along with a scrap of blue grosgrain.

Other Supplies: Lily Bee papers and journaling block, corrugated cardboard, Primas, AC thickers, staz-on ink, Prima crystals

Assorted Cards

assorted cards using paper and ribbon scraps

Autumn’s Invisible Friend

He’s been around for a while, but I only recently found out that he is a “he”.

She talks to him a lot. I’ll hear her babbling on and ask her what she’s talking about, only to be informed that she was not talking to me, but to him.

Yesterday I was told that his name is Wilbur.

He is currently “at work and [she’s] talking to him on the phone” while she cleans up her legos.

Sometimes he is big. Sometimes he is small. She can pretty much always tell you where he happens to be standing and sometimes it’s the most unlikely place…

…considering that no matter what other aspects of him change he is always a cow.
