Witching Shopping Trip

Hello Friend and Stampers,
Here is my Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration for you today.
Happy Holly-Day Friday!  Whoo Hoo, what's everyone doing this weekend?  I'm off work with the guys this weekend.  We are going to the fair tomorrow!!!  Yeah.   That means wristbands and watching them go around and around and around while we stand in the blistering heat for 5 hours, taking pictures, lol.  Once they have done that, we are usually too tired for the exhibit booths and the animals, lol.   But it's the fair and the kids have fun. 
I kinda got peer pressured into putting away the summer paper for a while, lol.  Don't worry, it's going too far for too long, lol.   I have not seen very much in the way of paper that I like this fall and winter season.  Some are cute but look so darn close to what I have that I have decided to buckle down and not jump until I see something I love.  Lucky for me and for you, there is still some of this fabulous Halloween paper in the Store from last year. And I have enough of it to last me through the Halloween season, lol.   I have purposefully avoided the LSS so that I do not buy any more paper for a while.  I have over 100 6X6 paper pads!  Isn't that awful?!  And I have given a few away but honestly, I have plans for the rest, lol.  So they stay.  I like this particular paper because it's all witch adds and Halloween designs.  My Candi dots were originally black and white, but white didn't look very good on this, so I got out my E43 and colored the words, now they fit in perfectly.  So my little Bewitching Witch is out shopping for her new Cauldron, all in high fashion, lol.  
I am following the MFT's weekly sketch.  Instead of adding a sentiment and word banner, I used the one in the paper and stamped a sentiment on there.  Part of the shopping motif, lol. 

And as you can see, my circle got much bigger, lol.
Laura has been adding all kinds of New Items to the store and it's hard to keep up on what she adding, lol.  But that won't stop me from trying my best, lol.  I do love it all and she does spoil me by adding the MFT items.  Don't forget to check on the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog  tomorrow for our weekly Video Tutorial by Indah, they are fabulous!  And you'll want to check in on Sunday too for the Design Team Blog Hop where you could win just for commenting!  This weeks Loves Rubberstamps Challenge is a 1,2,3 Challenge - Check HERE for the details.
Reed continues to work away at catching up in school.  He has made a few really exciting milestones and discovered that he is recognising some words and is able to read most of the material in front of him for his grade level.  We are taking things in steps.  He can do math in his head better than I can and he excels on that, so we are doing a lot of reading, writing and then we will focus more on Spelling.  His teacher is awesome and the daycare instructor is such a blessing, she gets him started on some of his homework.   So we are the little engine that could saying, "I think I can, I think I can..." lol. 
Thanks for Looking and your kinds Comments
