Journalling: We got together in mid-October to celebrate Joshís, Daniís, Jonís, and Jackís birthdays. Fall around here means donuts-and-cider and bobbing-for-apples. So, we put candles in their donuts and served Caramel Apple Supremes (or just regular apple cider for those that didnít like hot drinks). We also did bobbing-for-apples, the no-germ version. We suspended apples from the ceiling and told the kids the only rule was they couldnít use their hands. Alex was the first to figure out how to use her shoulder. Dani and Eddie decided to work together.

    Great job on the challenge, Monica! I love all the photos you used and the background paper is great!
    lovely LO
    I can't believe you go so much done in the speed scrap. I love that background paper and those photos are so much fun.
    good for you for making it into a 2 pager. Nicely done.
    So cute Monica! Love your great photos and your background is just perfect - like the apples on the string. Looks like a fun time was had by all! :)
    What great fun! I love your photos. Nice template for them, too.
    Monica what a fun layout - I love your journaling, your brush work AND all of your fun birthday photos!
    Love the lines and circles on the bg paper that mirror the apple bobbling. Great job!
    What neat ideas for the party - the candles in the donuts & the upside down bobbing. The circles on a string in the background look really neat.
