Dodgers vs. Phillies - a House Divided

As DH and I watch these two teams go at it, our house is divided! DH grew up in southern California and even worked at Dodger Stadium! He is so loyal to his team! I grew up in suburban Philadelphia - so, I'm rooting for my team although there isn't this true blue loyalty with me. Things can get tense in our home if the Dodgers are losing, LOL. I don't gloat --- much! But, in these playoffs, we are most certainly a house divided!

Go Phillies!

We got our boulders! I was so excited when they were delivered and set into place. Who knew getting rocks would make me so happy? Here are some photos of my new rocks! They don't look that big in the photo. The largest one is about the size of the front of a VW Bug. LOL Dumb, huh?







I think it is hilarious that in a mountainous area such as where we live, boulders are everywhere - yet we have to buy the ones we need for landscaping. I would have liked a bigger one as shown in the fourth photo, but DH was concerned w/ the trees and their growth. That one weighs about 800 lbs., LOL

I have some layouts to share with you. They are for sale, if you are interested.

The first LO, in my mind, was one that I thought would work for those "tweens" this Halloween. Those kids are too old for the really cutesy type stuff but still like to get dressed up. The large photo mat says, "trick or treat" in very pale letters. It is suitable for a nice group photo! There are four small photo mats for journaling or additional photos. The hinges are grungeboard that have been treated to look like antique silver. I added some raffia, a glittery skull, and the cutest metal photo corner that has a spiderweb and ghost in it. There are lots of layers and every layer has been inked and distressed. The PP is a heavy duty weight. The colors are black, green, eggplant, and cream. I love how this turned out. I kept thinking of what a "tween" would like to have their photos on.


Dressed to Chill Price: $7.50

The next one was fun to make! I fell in love with the colors. You cannot see the edges of the black CS background sheet, but I have punched them using a picket fence punch. I would want something bright behind it, so when you put it into your page protector, you might want the opposite page to be orange on the back. This would allow the punched border to show. I machine stitched the PP to the black cardstock. There are two nicely sized photo mats and a third smaller mat that would be fine for a smaller photo or even the journaling. I made the little bear that is holding his pumpkin costume in place. He has on a matching hat with two tiny green leaf-shaped gems by the stem. I've added flowers, and used a punch that looked like a bat's head to me. Isn't that purple paper fun? You can see that the pumpkin is made of glittered cdardstock.


Boo to You!Price:$7.50

The last LO is just the cutest ever! I had so much fun making that little bear! There is a large photo mat for a 5 x 7 photo. The smaller mats will hold nicely sized photos as well. They are just tucked inside the pocket. The little ghost border is made from a puffy satin ghost ribbon. It's been secured along the edge of the pocket. The bear is holding a little pumpkin while sitting on some Fall leaves. There are orange gems in the center of the flowers on the smaller mats. I added a small journaling box. The ribbon on the largest mat is double sided with a dark color on one side and orange on the other


Hauntingly CutePrice: $7.50 SOLD

These are one of a kind creations. I am trying to provide a good deal without trying to make a ton of profit. I figure what I'm saving in ebay fees is to your advantage!

Mailing Info

The total postage for mailing within the US is $5.50, USPS First Class Mail. If you purchase more than one, the shipping fee will remain $5.50! Mailing fee would be higher if mailed out of the USA. I'd have to find out the cost and then let you know after you've committed to purchase. Payment is made through Paypal. It's just easier that way. We are both protected! Of course, if you live nearby, you can always come and pick it up and save on those mailing fees! That makes it an even better bargain for you!

Thank you for stopping by. I hope my Phillies don't upset my DH too much! He couldn't take the defeat! Oh, DS, if you are reading this, I hope you can handle any losses the Dodgers may have! **tee hee**

Love to you,
