As you know, I headed out of town for Halloween. I spent the weekend in Birmingham and was able to enjoy an entire day shopping and having a great time with April Mechelle. She had already surprised me with a little Halloween RAK a few days before, so this gave me a chance to repay her kindness.

I also had some sad news just before my trip...my boss was retiring! I was so bummed out, cos' he is an AWESOME person to know and work with. He has always been so supportive of me, with school and family, that I wanted to do something really special for him...so, I finished this sweet design and had it framed in an old barn-wood style frame. He is an avid gunman and hunter, so I knew that he would love the design and colors...plus he loves inspirational sayings, and this one surely fit the bill.
