Our visit to the Pumpkin Patch!

Growing up, I always loved Halloween. Most of the excitement was built around getting dressed up in costume, going trick-or-treating, and most importantly, eating ALL the candy. Though our family didn’t have traditions like going to the pumpkin patch or carving pumpkins (can you believe I carved my first pumpkin in my thirties?!), now as a mom, after my birthday on the 5th, it’s full on Halloween mode. JC’s birthday falls on the 26th and he is really into Halloween. Since we moved into our house and had Jack, JC has made it a priority to make the holiday really special for us all.

We just got a few more pumpkins and plan on carving them a few days before Halloween - the hot weather in LA doesn’t bode well for the survival of the carved creations. In years past, I have taken plenty of pictures, but I really wanted to document Jack going to the pumpkin patch in his adorable PAW Patrol Marshall costume this year.

PAW Patrol Marshall + dog costumes

As you may have seen in this blog post, we got a head start on celebrating Halloween this year with the PAW Patrol Pumpkin Push-In Kits. This time, Jack decided to dress up as Marshall from one of his favorite shows, PAW Patrol.  He was all too excited about the fact that his costume (only at Target) talks and says some of Marshall’s favorite phrases like, “I’m fired up!” I also couldn’t resist ordering some costumes for our pups too. Bamboo was content dressing up as Skye while Buster decided to go as Chase. As we got ready, Jack played with his set of PAW Patrol Pirate Pups Plush toys, PAW Patrol Pirate Pups Action Pack Gift Set figurines, and his PAW Patrol Pirate Pups - Pirate Vehicles and set them up to bring them along to the pumpkin patch. Our house has become Adventure Bay!  

He was a little sad that Buster and Bamboo couldn’t join our little outing to our favorite pumpkin patch, Mr. Bones. However, he was excited to bring the PAW Patrol Pirate Pups Plush along. We met up with our friend Harper, who was dressed as Shine from another Nickelodeon favorite, Shimmer and Shine!

Jack smiled when he saw her and said, “Mama, I seen that show before. I like it.” It was so cute watching him make the Marshall costume talk numerous times for Harper. She also gave the Skye PAW Patrol Pirate Pup Plush a super cute hug and kiss as soon as she saw it. Harper is a huge PAW Patrol fan too! There were so many adorable moments at the pumpkin patch. Here are some highlights from our awesome adventure. You can also see it all unfold in the video below and catch the exclusive talking feature in Jack’s new favorite costume!

They had so much fun at the petting zoo and running around in their costumes. Between the excitement the kids enjoyed snacking on PAW Patrol Fruit Snacks - lots of them. You can check out the way Jack and I documented the pre-Halloween fun in under 30 minutes in my traveler’s notebook.

Would love to hear if you have fun Halloween or pumpkin patch traditions in the comments!

You can snag your very own PAW Patrol Halloween costumes with sound, along with PAW Patrol Pirate Pups plush, PAW Patrol Pirate Pups - Pirate Vehicle Set and more only at Target!

Zinia's Pocket Page Diary

Hey there! It’s Zinia back with another fun project using Amy’s amazing Hustle & Heart collection with American Crafts.

So today I decided to use the beautiful bits of Hustle & Heart in my pocket page diary. Now I guess you are wondering, what on earth is a pocket page diary? Well I really love the project life pocket system but I’m in no way able to keep up with weekly or even monthly spreads. So instead, I use the system like a diary to store my favorite photos, memorabilia, thoughts and pretty much anything you would put in a diary.

When it comes to pocket spreads I honestly never have a plan. That sometimes can be a problem but with these beautiful products everything came together effortlessly. First I went through the cut apart sheets and grabbed a few 3x4 and 3x3 cards I liked. Then I started spreading them on my page until I was happy with what I had.

To turn my 3x3 cards into 3x4s I used some pattern paper scraps and branding strips to add at the top and the bottom to extend their size.

I really love using the Hustle & Heart sticker book in pocket page spreads cause they are nice and flat and they don’t add extra bulk in the pockets. On top of that I just love layering them on my photos.

To fill in some empty areas, I brought in a few items from the On a Whim collection. Although the color palettes of the two collections are significantly different, they still work beautifully together and they complement each other.

Violeta's "Super Enjoy" Layout

Hello everyone, my name is Violeta Scrap and I am so excited to share this layout with you using Amy Tangerine´s collections.

Super Enjoy Layout 1.jpg

This layout is about my travel to Malaysia. I have used pictures from my printer INSTAX Share-SP2 for our Layouts, it is perfect to use small photos, to be able to place many photos in a Layout.

Super Enjoy Layout 2.jpg

I had so much fun with this page and was surprised at how quickly it came together. I started out with a white sheet of cardstock and I decided to add my pictures.

On this layout, I used a combination of so many of my favorite things: small pictures, stickers, and a smattering of letters and stickers.

I really love playing with this collection, it´s so full of amazing products. This collection is absolutely amazing!

I cuted a word from one tag and used them in the page as ephemera. My title “Enjoy” was also made using Thickers from “Oh happy life” collection.

Super Enjoy Layout 4.jpg

I really love mixing different materials so I included clear stickers, chipboard, stickers, enamels, Thickers and washi tape. Some of my top favorite elements in this collection are the golden words designs.

I´ve written my journaling with a black pen. I love the look of handmade journaling.
