Happy Halloween

My daughter loves Halloween.  She decided during the summer that she wanted to be Princess Jasmine.  It turns out, that’s a hard costume to find, so I had to order it online.  Sadly, it is too cold for her to really show off the costume.  She has to wear a shirt underneath and a jacket over top to keep warm.  But she still loves it.  My son has an aversion to costumes.  At our event this weekend, it took a lot of coaxing to get him into his costume and he wanted it off as soon as he was done getting his candy.  I’m not sure if he will let us put it on again tomorrow night for the actual Trick or Treating.  Fingers crossed it isn’t another cry-fest.

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween!

Fall For Me

The beauty of Autumn is now behind us and the streets are blanketed with leaves.  We have one tree in our front yard and it has successfully entertained the kids for over a week now.  It’s the first year that J hasn’t been scared of playing in the leaves.  They have both had a lot of fun.  L has now moved on though, and is looking forward to the snow (after Halloween).

Photographer In The Making?

I recently pulled out our old digital camera.  It still works, but it’s old.  The kids have both taken to it.  There’s no memory card yet (I’ll be adding one, just to take a peek at the world they like to try to capture).  But for now, they have fun pretending.  They can see their subject on the screen, the flash goes off and it beeps.  That’s really all they need.

Today, James decided he wanted me to take pictures of him taking pictures of me.  I think he makes a handsome photographer. 🙂

Using Templates To Find My Mojo

I’ve been away from my computer for a few days (for Thanksgiving weekend), so I needed something to get my mojo going again.  I decided to use a couple of templates to create some layouts I’ve been meaning to do.

The first template is “Cut It” from Studio Basic Designs.  I used papers from the kit “Inspire Me” by Jen C Designs.

The second template I used was “Single 18” from Sweet Shoppe Designs.  The kit is “Loving You”, also by Jen C Designs (I’m a big fan of hers!).  The beautiful baby is my daughter when she was nearly 3 months old.  Seems like a lifetime ago!


If you love what you see and wish you could do the same with your pictures, contact me (visit Jennifer Martin Designs for more details). I would be happy to digitally scrap your photos!


I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely fall weather.  It is gorgeous out there!


Apple Crisp-Type Weather

Despite my almost constant scrapping over the last two years, I have never posted one of my layouts in a designers gallery.  Somehow, it just felt too intimidating to show my work.  I love browsing through the galleries and seeing all the gorgeous pages other digital scrappers create.  It is really inspiring (and intimidating).  But I decided it was finally time to start introducing myself to the other artists out there and finally shared one of my prints.  I made it this weekend using the kit “Apple Crisp” by Peppermint Creative.  It is called “A Is for Adorable”.
