Harvey's Treats for Halloween!

Yesterday, Harvey's School celebrated Halloween!!! And It was really fun seeing harvey and his classmates in their cute costumes! They were all adorable!!! And I can also see by look in their faces, that they were having a blast getting those goodies in their pumkins!

A few days before the event, the school asked us if we could prepare a small loot for each of Harvey's classmates. This was my table as i was preparing his lootbags...

I just made this simple as I was doing this the night before the event...a closer look.... cute owls isn't it?And this is his class picture taken yesterday!!! Harvey was wearing pirate and is sitted in the middle of the front row....

I miss scrapping...

I miss scrapping.... yah, since the idols, i havent done a single page. I was only doing a lot of scrap shopping but no finished page. There has been a lot of things goin on for the past few days... like Harvey getting sick again after his vaccination. He has fever last Thursday to Saturday!!! So i was in panic mode for a couple of days. Im scared he might be hospitalized again. Good thing he is now well... he went back to school last Tuesday after being absent for 3 days. I hope everything will be back to normal so that i can scrap pages again. (keeping my fingers crossed, i hope to scrap later... i miss it!!! ) It doesnt feel the same not producing anything... or not being able to post a new Layout in my blog for quiet sometime. I still have here 5 Layouts to share but cant post it yet... hope you guys would watch out for it.
