Halloween Postcards

Just thought I'd share these awesome Halloween postcards from the NY Public Library.

These could definitely work themselves into a layout, don't you think?

I also found this album on flick from ripetheskull

Happy Halloweening! xo

Halloween - Costume Suggestions Please!!

I definitely have more motivation to scrap lately.  Maybe it has to do with all the events... or the change in seasons... or finally settling into my apartment living (again). The move really took a lot out of me.  I think I get a big fat F in "army wive-ing" for that. :)  

My time this week, however, is dedicated to the next project - Planning our Halloween - Housewarming Party!  I'm so excited.  First, I've never actually hosted a party (scary!) and Second, I love Halloween!  I've been thinking a lot about it, but haven't actually had a lot of time to prepare, so prep all this week. 

A few weeks back, I sent out this "Save the Date" with a spooky vintage feel - found here.

I also liked this one, but didn't have time to edit it to take out "late afternoon"...

How cool are those?

I also LOVED this creepy City of New York Toe Tag Invitation (blank version - freebie found here) - SO appropriate for our Halloween party in NYC!!  Unfortunately, sending paper invitations to a group of 30-somethings in NYC was not going to work.  I am, however, going to try and figure out a way to use them somewhere!

Getting inspiration from other bloggers, magazines, etc.  I don't remember what I googled to find this layout of photos from bridalcanvas, but if anybody ever wanted to get married on Halloween, this was pretty cool!

Party is Saturday.  

I still have no costume, but I'm a little worried about other things.  I'm taking costume suggestions... Please! :)

Hope you're enjoying your week! xo!

Finally! A Layout!

I did it!  I finally did a layout!  Woot Woot!  First one I've done since moving back to NYC.  :)

It was fun.  The gals over at Studio Calico really know how to pick and coordinate beautiful papers from completely different lines.  I love this wood paper so much. I can think of a million things to use it for. The scalloped edge paper was great. 

The herringbone in that seafoam green... Ugh.... I DIE!  Love it.

Hope everyone is having a beautiful Saturday!
