*{It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...}*

I'll share a secret with you...everyone thinks it's December...but it's's October. ....


“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”


- L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables


Anne Shirley knows what's up!


It's no surprise she's a kindred.


October equals my Grandma and Grandpa Matesowicz's birthdays', my Momma's birthday, Angel Girl's birthday, The Pumpkin King & The Great Pumpkin. I come alive in Fall. It makes me incredibly happy! ❤


It's my turn to share with you over at Timeless Twine today, I'm sharing a card I created for my Momma. It's her birthday this week and I am going to be mailing it to her promptly. (Sorry Mom, you saw your card before it came to you..I get that from you..!)


TT, Blog Post, 10-8-13, Shannon M.


Here's a close up of some of the details:

I used Krazy for Kraft to create that nifty can find all of that and more in the Bella Creationz store!! Just click on the twine below and it will take you right to the store. ❤ Yes, I'm an enabler like that. 


Have a great Tuesday...and remember to remain sincere so The Great Pumpkin will show up at your pumpkin patch on Halloween Night! ❤


*{Xyron/Doodlebug Blog Hop!}*

Xyron is on fire with the Blog Hops! This week begins a brand new blog hop with Doodlebug Design! How fun is that??!?! 

All week long you can expect awesome inspiration from the Xyron team and the Doodlebug Team! Make sure you are checking the blog all week...there are sure to be great giveaways and chances to win Doodlebug and Xyron scrappy goodness!

Today, Jennifer Priest, Stacy Rodriguez and I are up on the Xyron side to bring you even more fantastic Fall inspiration. 


I created a layout using Xyron and Doodlebug's Happy Harvest line to create this layout about a recent trip to the pumpkin patch. I wasn't really in any pictures because I was having an allergic reaction to something and I looked similar to Sloth from Goonies, which no one had a problem continuously pointing out to me....jerks!


Anyway, it was a great day and we had a great time as a family.




Here's a few closeups of the awesomeness that is Xyron & Doodlebug:
