Happy Halloween!

We had ourselves a great time trick or treating!  My oldest was a Mad Scientist.  That wig was . . . well, a bit much.  You can't tell from these photos, but his test tube glowed in the dark.  Too fun!  And my youngest, he was a Jawa.  I wanted some pics with his face in it, so I put some make up on him.  Brown eyeshadow.  He was such a good sport!

I hope you had a great Halloween as well!  See you soon with something scrappy.

On Trend in TSR's November Kit

The new Crate Paper On Trend collection is in The ScrapRoom's November Doubleshot kit.  LOVE it!  Magenta and gray.  Hello Fall.  And absolutely on trend!  Here's what I did with it.


You get a full 12 x 12 sheet of chipboard shapes.  LOVE that!  I had fun sprinkling them all over my layout, and I still have enough left for another project or two.

Bling That Thing Layout

This week, Doodlebug is focusing on using jewels and pearl on cards and layouts.  For my project, I created a Halloween layout using the new Haunted Manor collection and my Cricut.


I used my Theresa Collins' Chic and Scary cartridge to cut this corner spider web and the title.  As for those cute little dangling spiders, those are Doodlebugs' new Mini Pops.  And their eyes are the Halloween Jewels.

I love the Haunted Manor Cardstock Frames Stickers.  The four stickers on the right side of my layout are the insides of the frames.  So fun!

Phew . . . finally finished scrapping last year's Halloween and pumpkin carving pictures.  Just in time to take a whole bunch more.  Hope you're having lots of Fall fun!  See you tomorrow with my ScrapRoom sneak layout.

Harvest Blessings Frame

Since I'm home sick today (darn head cold!), I thought I'd share a project that I made for Cricut Circle last year.  My assignment was to use the Cricut Word Collage cartridge.  I chose the Thanksgiving image and made this rustic frame for my mantel.


And here it is on my mantel mixed in with some foliage, a cool yarn-wrapped letter, a metal lantern, and a cute ceramic owl (Thanks, Jess!).  

Hope you have a great day!  I'm going to curl back under the covers and watch some TV.  See you soon.

Simple Stories and Pebbles at The ScrapRoom

This month's Doubleshot kit at The ScrapRoom includes Simple Stories' Take a Hike collection and Pebbles Walnut Grove collection.  Both are such awesome lines!  One is perfect for Fall and the other is versatile and can work for just about any theme.  Here's my October gallery projects.

Explore Nature

My little fella loves to explore outside.  And the dirtier, the better!  Here he's crawling all over a washout at the baseball field while his brother was playing ball.  The first picture cracks me up . . . he looks like a little urchin!

With this kit, you get the entire 12 x 12 Simple Stories Cardstock Sticker Sheet.  Awesome!  It has so many different Fall themes on it that you are sure to find something that works for ya.

A Beautiful Day at the Zoo

This page makes me SO happy!  Not only was I able to include nine 4" x 4" photos, but I was also still able to have my beloved white space and clean lines.  And I got some zoo pictures scrapped.  Every time we go out of town, we end up at the zoo.  And every time, I take a gazillion pictures.  That I just have to scrap.  Ha ha!  

Enjoy Your Day Card

You Make Me Smile Card

That's it for me today!  Ummm . . . maybe this month.  Since I went back to teaching school, I haven't been scrapping nearly as much.  There have been fewer blog posts as well.  Hope to see you soon!
