For me fall is all about Halloween! I love to decorate the house and dress up. So for my project I created a halloween layout with the new Bo Bunny line. It was perfect for my photos of the boys making some monster cupcakes.

How cute are the little monsters (not mine the ones on the paper LOL).

Ornate Box Flower Ornament

I found a tutorial on the Cosmo Cricket Blog for this ornate box flower and when Julie mentiones Christmas Ornaments I knew I had to give it a try.

Here's one I made with the new Echo Park paper and Basic Grey buttons. The flower was crocheted by my friend Sarah. I am thinking of making these in our next class...what do you think?

A Creepy Day

I decided to go for a walk this morning and took my camera along as it was foggy and I wanted to get a few shots. It was totally creepy - everywhere I turned all I could see were spider webs.

If you look at this bush there are spider webs covering the whole thing - EWWWW!

They were all over the trees and pipes and I think I walked into a few of them too. It was very cool but now I am totally creeped out. All these webs would be perfect for Halloween!

I also saw this dandelion puff with dew all over it - very cool.

And of course the beautiful leaves.

I am so glad we live here - it's amazing!

Hope your day isn't this creepy :)

Card Set

I have lots of birthdays coming up and wanted to make a card set for a friend. The box is a pizza box I found directions for at Split Coast Stampers.

The cards are made with American Crafts paper and Hero Arts stamps.

These sets are really easy to create and make great presents for teachers or friends.

We Scrap Challenge

With Halloween just around the corner I wanted to finally get my old Halloween photos scrapped. I looked through my photos and found these ones of my youngest son actually cutting and gutting his first pumpkin. Up until then we had done all the work for him. He was so proud of himself and I knew I had to come up with a great title for this layout.

My challenge is to scrap some halloween photos but create a title that's unique and catchy! Head on over to We Scrap and join in the fun!

I was framed!

I love turning old frames into something cute and pretty. I love this photo of my son and his friend on a boat and wanted a special frame for it. I took an old Ikea frame cleaned it up and sanded the edges. The Splash Dance line from Imaginisce was perfect for this frame and I added waves with lots of dimension and some clouds. I love the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

World Card Making Day

I was so excited to get the news yesterday that I am on the We Scrap Iteam!

Today they are hosting a World Card Making Day Crop and Copic Card Tag! They asked if I could do a card challenge and I knew right away what I wanted to do. I have been having so much fun using my Glimmer Mists on my cards so I made it my challenge.

Here is my card:

To make this card I embossed this cool stamp image by memory Box with black embossing powder on white cardstock then sprayed several colors of Glimmer Mist over the image. Let it dry for a few seconds then gently wipe the Glimmer Mist of the embossed image. I added some torn paper and buttons with twine to the card.

I hope you can play along just head on over to the We Scrap forum and get out your mists!
