Serendipity POTD, and @JMCOfficial

Kristin picked my Pumpkin Eater layout for the POTD for 11/3/09 on the Serendipity Scrapbooks board. 
I love this layout {and sorry for the bad photo - it's washed out from bad lighting and camera flash}
I really love the picture on this layout - we were having so much fun when I took it {and no, he didn't really eat any of them... but successfully grossed out his sister because she thought he was going to!}

Papers are from Pink Paislee and Little Yellow Bicycle {I still think that is a cool company name!} Alphas are also from Pink Paislee, and are actually a nice shade of glittery green. I used the MS Drippy Goo punch for the green drips - I love that punch! The journal box is also Pink Paislee, and the alpha stickers are Making Memories.

The black velvet flowers are from Maya Road - I wish I had more of them.. I will be sad when they are gone.  Black pearls are courtesy of Jack Sparrow.. oops! I mean Prima! The purple pearls are from Queen & Co. I don't remember who the purple gems are from - tossed the package already, and I forgot to write it down {oops}.

The pumpkin is a wooden piece that came in the Halloween kit. I painted it with Tim's spiced marmalade crackle paint {which I dried with the heat tool since I was too impatient to let it dry on its own}. I inked over it with Tim's Black Soot ink, then wiped off the excess. The stem was inked with pine needles ink. The design was cut from one of the patterned papers, and I added little red gems {Basic Grey} for the eyes.

So, my other favorite thing to do lately is get on Twitter and chitchat with some of my HTFs. It's always interesting to see what some of the musicians I follow are doing as well. Jason posts quite often on Twitter, to let people know what he's doing, and will sometimes post photos. He took this photo tonight while onstage {he was performing with several others - Kellie Pickler, Phill Vasser, and Jimmy Wayne} in Scranton, PA.

And one of the HTFs, Teri { @TewiTso on Twitter } had gone to the show and took this picture at the same time Jason took the above picture!

I'm tellin' ya, the man cracks me up.
{and Hell yeah, there will be a scrapbook page for the album!}

Oh, yeah, and check out his awesome Halloween costume:

Pretty cool, huh? The family theme this year was super heroes and villains. {Robin is his son, JW}
Oh, and ironically, guess what was on TV when I took my dinner break tonight.
