Guess Who Won First Place at The Halloween Contest?

I was pretty excited to win the first place prize at my companywide Halloween contest!

I was a regulation rapper. For those of you who don’t know what a regulation rapper is… that’s ok because I totally made it up. You know that old 80’s rap song called O.P.P?


I made a parody to this rap song called F.O.C.

(For the record, I’m not ‘down with O.P.P. I was shocked at what the actual lyrics to this song meant! As a kid I just liked the beat.)

During our Halloween contest and parade I got up in front of our entire company and sang the rap song.

  • You down with F.O.C?
  • Ya you know me? 
  • A.K.A “Friend of Compliance
  • To the B, to the C, to the DD
  • Reg Z, well that’s not that simple….
  • It’s not from the NCUA
  • It’s from the CFPB
  • What up, yo!

Well it was super funny in person!

I also made a really awesome photo booth in my office and took pictures of my AMAZING co-workers. It was so much fun! I would love to create a cool Photo Booth at Scrap Diva Retreats.


Would you enjoy a photo booth at Scrap Diva Retreats?

I think it would be fun to have dress up stuff like silly glasses, hats and props. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, I just haven’t had any free time.

Did you dress up for Halloween? Did you take some cute pictures of your kids and/or grandkids? I would love to see all your pictures.

Halloween Dessert Buffet Video

Good evening divas,

I’m excited to share with you a quick video of my dessert buffet. My homemade halloween cards and mixed media shadow box were great decoration accents on the table!

Halloween Baking Adventure

This week I decided to go on a  Halloween baking adventure and became obsessed with creating the perfect dessert table filled with homemade, delicious and gorgeous looking treats.

My first stop was the grocery store where I bought everything I thought  I needed to bake a few cupcakes and cookies. That night I went home excited to bake a few batches of cupcakes. I brought them into work the next day to frost them which was a bit more hectic…

My first attempt to frost cupcakes!

My first attempt to frost cupcakes!

Frosting cupcakes is definitely messy when you have no idea what you are doing and you stuff frosting into a cheap plastic piping bag without a coupler attached. I didn’t realize I should twist the top part of the bag to prevent the icing from coming out the back! I thought it was a pretty complicated process and got icing all over my arms. I had a blast laughing at myself at 6AM in the morning!

Cupcake Frosting Halloween

The first day the dessert buffet at work was a HUGE success. Everyone kept coming up to me saying they loved the cupcakes and they looked awesome.

Halloween Cupcakes & Cookies Day 1

So naturally I became slightly obsessed and decided to take a quick trip to Michaels for some more sophisticated cupcake piping materials. Of course everything was 70% off so I had to buy a few more things… Then I found myself back at the grocery store and found some adorable frosting colors like this vibrant purple! It was love at first site!


Halloween Desert Buffet Day 2

The Second and third day I decided to go ALL OUT! I went home and baked cupcakes and cookies until I was exhausted. Then the next day I frosted them all!  Between all three days I think it may have taken me about 7 hours to frost all the cupcakes!

Today I popped into Pier One and had to pick up a few more items because… they were on SALE  and they were ADORABLE!

I had a fancy sign made that says “Be a Friend of Compliance”! We decorated our Halloween booth for tomorrow. I’m so excited to unveil our compliance trivia game during our party! Somehow I got talked into being in the dunk tank so that will be another adventure…

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you enjoyed the Pics.
