New Month... New Things Happening

Wowzas! It's already October! It's really starting to feel like fall now. Up here in Oregon there is always that morning risk of rain on the way to the bus stop. Ugh. Bust out the umbrellas. Here comes that infamous Oregon rain!

My girls are really getting into the groove of school now though.... and luckily they both love it. (That always helps eh?) My poor little Alycia.... on the way to the bus stop (which is only a few houses away) she tripped and tore up her knees pretty badly, bruised up her forehead, and roughed up her hands. She's screaming bloody murder through the entire neighborhood, I'm freaking out, and HER biggest concern is that she might miss the bus!!! LOL! Well... at least she wanted to get cleaned up quickly and back in that bus stop line. (And she DID make it.... we cleaned her up, stuck on some band aids.... and she was out the door!)

Anyway..... there are a couple of really fun things happening at DSO this month. Bunny, the 'commander in chief' of the site, happens to LOVE Halloween.... which ends up REALLY benefitting all of YOU! How you might ask???? Well.... pop in the DSO BLOG every day in October and you can download some new treat! (Trick Or Treating for the entire month!) The DSO designers are going to take turns offering new freebies for you every day.... and on Halloween there is a major goodie to pick up!!!

Another new activity at DSO starting this month is my FIRST EVER challenge! Woohoo! Would you like to finally USE one of those fabulous quick pages hanging around on your hard drive? This challenge is as simple as this : USE a quick page.... and you will GET a quick page for playing along! It's easy, fast, and FUN!

Wanna play along? Here is the participation bonus you'll get for being part of the action :

Oh... and since this is my first month... I thought I would give you TWO pages.... one WITH the 'smile beads' and one WITHOUT the 'smile beads.' Thought the page could be more versatile for you that way. Check out the complete details HERE.

And of course, I based this quick page off of a layout I created for myself..... so I thought I would show that to you as well...

This is one of my favorite pics of my daughter. (The one who fell this morning and scraped up her knees actually...) I love that 'hint of a smile' lingering there. She's a sweetie!

Hopefully I'll see you over at DSO this month for my challenge. Hope you're all having a great day.... and don't forget to visit the DSO blog each day this month for a new freebie during the whole month of October!!!

The bus story broke my heart, poor girl. But at least she made the bus and too a child that IS the important part! I enjoy all your beautiful, creative pages you share, I wish I had your talent!

WOW OH WOW!! Your QP is BEAUTIFUL!! I'm gonna have to go play for sure now LOL. You KNOW how I love QP's. Ah, your poor little sweetie. Isn't funny how a bandaide seems to be the "magical" cure for any boo boo. If you get time, go check out my "Skinned Knees" post LOL. The kids look so cute in their costumes. And that's ok, don't feel bad, my poor little guy is wearing hand me downs from my adult sons ROTF. You have a great week Beth :-) can send some of that rain my way, it's been dry as a bone here in Texas except for a little trickle last week!!
