Wow, where did last week go??

Do you ever have one of those weeks that when it's over, you wonder where it went and exactly what you accomplished?!  Whew, that was last week.  I spent a few days down for the count with a miagraine.  Those kind of 'bucket by the bed' miagraines.   And of course with a miagraine, comes the few days after still not feeling 100% which = low or no productivity. 
So, on Saturday when I was feeling better, let me tell you, Saturday and Sunday, boy, oh boy was the paper flyin'!
On Saturday we spent a crafty day with Amy and Colin.  Colin is celebrating his 4th birthday this Saturday (yep, my Halloween nephew).  We're getting all his goodie bags and cake toppers and things together.  So, we cut and dressed 29 little paper dolls for gift bags.  We have Witches, Rock Stars, Firemen, Pirates, Cowboys/Girls & Indians, Princesses, Pixies and Super Hero's just to name a few!
We've got some extras that don't yet have clothes for the late RSVP'ers.   In addition to the googley eyes on these little dolls, I believe there were some googley eyes that at one point were attached to a 4 year olds nose, but of course, the camera wasn't anywhere within reach.  This week I'll finish getting them attached to their little bags.  All that's left to finish cutting is the center piece decorations and the cake toppers. 
Sunday I did a bit of playing catch up until it was time to meet Amy, Colin and Susan for the Zoo Boo at the Detroit Zoo.  We always have such a great time.  We're still swapping photos back and forth between the three of us, but here's a cute one of 'Chef' Colin and his three little monkeys.
I was able to get a few Scrap-Friendzy projects done, which was fabulous too!! 
 These are just a few I did.  I had this font that is all pumpkins (I got it through Scrap N Fonts which has fabulous fonts and dingbats - yep, another addiction!!).  I increased the size to 325+ point, printed out a few 'layers', colored them using the Magic Colored Pencil Technique and then started layering the different parts & pieces with pop dots.  The eyes and stems were cut out and put on 1/8" dots.  Added a bit of doodling and some stickles and wal-lah.
So, that's about all for today.  I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things this week - after last week, anything is better than last week.
Hope you have a fabulous day!
Happy Craftin'!
