Give Thanks!

A fun trip to the museum with Riley's class this morning - I've never been to the Cumberland County Museum before, and it was definitely worth going. Perhaps next time we have visitors we should take them there! It was a rather rushed tour of only about 45 minutes or so, but to be honest, it seemed a little long for some of the kids. I'm pretty sure the one thing Riley won't forget is the tiny tale of the "Great Amherst Mystery." They have a little spooky scene set up with writing on the wall saying "You are mine to kill." I'm sure that's going to come up at bedtime tonight, and probably for a great many nights to come. For a boy who enjoyed the Haunted House at Upper Clements Park so much, Riley has suddenly become very timid about anything hinting of spookiness. Halloween will be rough this year!

Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Scarlett's Letter";
Various leaf stamps from Hero Arts;
Ink used: Versamark, Distress Ink, Colorbox Chalk;
gold tinsel embossing powder from Stampendous;
ribbon: Offray; tag hand-cut; sentiment stamp ("give thanks") by Stampin' Up!
But, before Halloween, Thanksgiving is right around the corner. And autumn is in the air - Connor wore pants today for the first time since June. Even I have been wearing socks around the house - and this morning there was a lovely crisp chill in the air. Hard to imagine that only three weeks ago it was 40 degrees...and I don't miss it one bit!
