Dear Diary, Halloween, and Inspired Blueprints......OH and new furniture too!

Could my title to today's post get any longer? Seriously?

I have a LO using Noel Mignon's Dear Diary kit and a sketch from Inspired Blueprints. I love how sketches take the thinking out of creating a LO. For me, the LO is the toughest part! I chose pictures of my guys carving their pumpkins and Kyle using the Cricut Cake machine to create his cupcake masterpieces! I kept the LO fairly simple and just added a few embellishments here and there.
I did a bit of layering here...........

.......and some journaling here........
And for those of you who stop here frequently......you know how goofy obsessed I have been with getting new furniture in my living room. (Maybe one has a tendency to get a little crazy when one hasn't gotten new furniture in 18 years..........maybe.) So drum roll please........here is my living room before the new furniture arrives.
....and here it is after!! Soooooooooo what do you think? (OK , even if you don't like it.......lie like a rug! The furniture can't go back anyway! LOL!)
And that's all I have for you today! I am off to work even though I have a scrappy hangover from the weekend. Spending 72 hours crafting with girlfriends until the wee hours of the night will do that to ya! : )
Have a GREAT day!!!!

I like that layout a lot. Simple yet full of details! And your furniture looks so homey...relish in its newness for as long as you can (i.e., before someone spills something on it!). Ha!
