With Halloween just a couple of days away I have been busy busy!

I will have a total of ten children (including my two), descending on my house this Friday. What began as two friends inviting themseves over has turned into a full blown party.

It is going to be absolute mahem....but I LOVE it! I love Halloween, love to see the weans knocking on the door, and here in Scotland they don't get a thing until they have done a little song, dance or joke.

My two are so excited, and after six years of making costumes from cardboard boxes/black bags I gave in to the commercialism of it all - I actually BOUGHT their costumes for this year.

Angus is going to be a Stormtrouper, and Michael a Jedi knight, (Anakin Skywalker to be precise).

I've been buying up decorations over the last couple of weeks, stocking up on sweeties and will be having a major baking session tomorrow to make my halloween cookies, (any excuse for a baking session is good for me, I love baking).

Tonight we're getting the decorations up and carving the pumpkins - incidently I was trying to grow my own this year but they never got bigger then a golf ball, after which the slugs had a right good feast on them - so I had to buy a couple instead.

I made up a little layout with a kit I bought from Stoneaccentsudios, another forum I belong to. The kit can be found here, and is chocca block with 85 papers and 127 elements, I had great fun playing around with photoshop to make this one and will be doing more once I have pictures from the Halloween party.
