The Boston train

Hi scrappy friends, are you ready for Christmas yet ??? I'm off work today and plan on getting it all finished and wrapped today !!!.... 4 more sleeps !!!
Last summer we took these two little clowns to Boston and they got to ride the train for the first time to go downtown from where we were staying. At first the little one was scared of the noise, but ended up not wanting to leave the train !

Most of the papers are from the Scooter's Vacation collection from Imaginisce.
I used a sketch # 133 from Creative Scrappers for this layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by today I'm off to go shopping !!

Festive Feast kit reveal

I sure hope it's nicer where you live than here in New Brunswick...getting over 100 mm of rain on the weekend with lots of wind !!! Good time to stay in and Scrap !!! :) :) :)
I had so much fun creating with this kit.....I LOVE the Fall colors from the Imaginisce (Apple Cider) , Lily Bee designs (Catching Fall) and Basic Grey( Pyrus) offered in the Festive Feast kit at Coordinates Collections.
First up is a layout called Comfort Food . I love the return of cooler weather to eat some of my favorite stews and chili !!! Yum !

I made the center of the larger flower out of warm and fuzzy cream colored felt.

Second is a layout of my goofy little dudes playing in the front yard a few weeks ago when we still had leaves on the it is very windy and miserable out, so they are all gone ! :(
The title "It's a beautiful day " is from a song from my favorite band U2.
How sweet are these Imaginisce them !! I used a sketch found on the Imaginisce blog for this layout and also a free Apple Cider Love tree template from the blog. (Thank you)
Here's the sketch:

Here's a few close ups of this layout. :)

and finally a little Fall home decor for my living room. 
Seriously, this took about 10 minutes to make !!Easy as can be !!!
Thanks so much for visiting today !! Have a great weekend :)
