What's better than Halloween candy?

The entire month of October in the digi-world is better than candy because there are TONS of treats everywhere and you won't get tooth decay! Make sure to keep checking the DSO blog for the daily downloads and you absolutely need to check in on Halloween for a "mega" surprise.

The SAS team has a blog-hopping, trick-or-treat event planned on October 30 (one day BEFORE Halloween). You won't want to miss this one, either. Here's a peek at who's handing out the goodies:

By the way, some of you have asked how David is doing and I'm happy to report he is healing nicely. There was a lot of bleeding the first night but it finally subsided, he's doing what he's supposed to for after-care, and it's all good. The hardest part for him is not being able to play his trumpet for two weeks. Thanks for your well-wishes and prayers.

My friend Brenda has created a benefit kit and I promised her I'd mention it on my blog. Her new kit, In The Navy Now, is perfect for Veteran's Day (just around the corner!), or any type of military layout - maybe even for the every day hero in your life. Brenda has committed to spend all the proceeds from this kit on packaging holiday boxes of every day items for the sailors on the USS Ramage currently serving in the Persian Gulf. What a worthy cause and a lovely way to help make the holidays more special for the folks serving our country. You can see previews and read more about this on Brenda's Blog - where, in fact, you can download a free sampler. Thanks for your support.

My Falling Into Autumn mini-kit is available for only $1.50 and includes 6 papers, 1 frame, 3 colored leaf accents, 1 border, 1 golden leaf accent, 4 curly ribbons, and 1 BONUS Quick Page. It's a perfect little kit for this time of year and I want to show you this cute layout I made of my Labrador when he was just a pup. I just love these photos.

Today's freebie is a sampler from my What A Feeling kit. Vibrant, bold colors make this a really versatile collection, perfect for celebrations, kids and teens, and all of those everyday moments photos. Look what Nani made with this kit and one of my SuperSimple Templates sets:

Here's a preview of What A Feeling:

Click on the preview below to get your sampler and please, no sharing the link or hotlinking - send your friends here to download instead. Have fun, and by all means if you make a layout with any of my products and upload to a gallery, send me the link because I'd love to see it.

My Poor Baby...

Well, this Friday is David's oral surgery (and no, he's not technically a baby anymore at nearly 18 years old). He has not three, not four, but SIX impacted wisdom teeth. How did that happen? I told him we can sign him up for the circus and make some money off this, but he didn't appreciate that thought. Sheesh, no sense of humor. So you know how I'm spending my weekend. Yep, nursing said son back to health. I still have to get the bags of frozen peas to use as ice packs.

Are you logging on to DSO's blog everyday to grab the freebies? You won't want to miss the cool stuff! And speaking of freebies, I'll give you a little advance notice of SAS' Trick Or Treat Blog Party. We'll be handing out the goodies on October 30 - not the 31st - so make sure to mark your calendars now!

Did you check out this week's SAS newsletter? There are some exclusive freebies in there!

My Too Cute To Spook collection is marked 30% off through Halloween. You can also pick up the TCTS Bitsy Add-On for only $1.00 - what a deal! Here's a layout of one of my boys when he was just a little guy, using Too Cute To Spook. Ain't he a cutie?

Here is a layout I made using my One Autumn Evening Quick Page set. (Yes, I know "pennys" is misspelled but that's how it is on the sign.)

This week's freebie is a sampler that coordinates with Merry Sunshine. It's still sunny in the fall here in California, and the colors in this kit also work well for autumn layouts. No hotlinking or sharing, please. Click on the preview to download.

Don't Miss This Month's New Challenges!

October means new challenges, so check these out along with the free posting bonuses. The DSO Quote Challenge will help kick-start the creativity for your autumn layouts, using a perfect fall quote. The posting bonus for this month is a pretty quick page using Lemon Sage:

I made this layout using my Falling Into Autumn mini-kit for this challenge. These are my stepsons when they were wee ones...

The My SAS-y Self Challenge at SAS is a fun one this month. I'm challenging you to create a layout about about your hairstyles over time. The posting bonus for this challenge is a mini-kit called Friendship Brew:

Here's the layout I made for this challenge. I had a lot of fun (and some chuckles!) going through my older photos. I used my Sunshiny Day kit for this page.

Because Halloween is this month, there are tons of digi-world "treats" going around. Have you been checking out the DSO blog every day? You simply must - there is a new treat EVERY day through the end of the month. Today's posting is an adorable "emotibuttons" set by Livia, so get it while you can!
