Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!!  I found this cute with hat to alter for today!  It's about 12" high and I had found a set of battery operated lights in orange at the thrift store about 6 months ago that I had this idea for :)  It all came together so nicely!  First off I had to go buy cheap Halloween paper out of the dollar bin at Target because all of my stuff is cardstock or way to thick to modge podge on a cone shape :)  It was 50% off too :)  I am super happy with the results and it's such a cute centerpiece on the table!  Here is a close up with the lights!

I hope you all have a fun & safe Halloween! And thanks for stopping by!  If you haven't checked out Colorful Kraft's blog hop keep reading and comment!!!  She is giving away some awesome Prima prizes :)

Colorful Kraft's Halloween Blog Hop!

Hello there!  And welcome to the last stop on colorful kraft's Halloween blog hop!  I was tickled when Rebekah asked me to join in on the fun!  I had so much fun creating a few spooky projects for the hop!  I want to make sure that you came here from the right place, if you came from shelly's blog then you are in the right place!  If not make sure you head on over to Rebekah's blog where it all started!!!  Make sure you leave a comment and check back daily to colorful kraft's because there are prizes to be had all weekend long!!!!  Leave me a comment as well and I will have a random prize winner as well!!!  Here's my first project!!

I made this super fun mini-album out of some envelopes from the bank :)  You know the little ones that they put your money in!  Crazy what you think of while waiting for them to cash a check for you :)  hehe!  Anyways here are the pages...

 I fell in love with this DCWV stack that I stumbled upon while at joann's so i paired it up with some older scraps from my stash, that's the best part about making mini albums!!!  I can use scraps :) 

 The fun 3d embellishments are K&Co that are just perfect with the DCWV paper, well it's Halloween, it's all Orange & Black anyways!!  As you can see the pockets open up to put little treasures :) 


Thank you for taking the time to hop along with us!  I hope you had some inspiration and have a couple of ideas to create something fabulous for Halloween!!!

Scrap it With a Song - Taylor Swift Fearless

I'm sorry that I've been seriously slacking lately!  It's been over 3 weeks since my last post!!!  Eeek!  It won't happen again! I promise!  Today there was a new challenge over at SIWAS posted, new DT member Jennifer chose Taylor Swift's Fearless!  So I used the lyrics in the title of this page!

The paper I'm in love with, it's the new Jillibean paper!  It's fabulous!!  I honestly have so much more to share with you that I made during the Paper Niche's Crop Pink last weekend, but I've got 1 1/2 hours to finish 2 more posts that I need to schedule and finish packing!!!  Girl Scout camping ALL WEEKEND LONG!!!  fun fun fun!!

Breast Cancer Album

Happy Sunday Everyone!  I've been on this mini album kick lately and I made this one for a scrap friend of mine who lost someone close to her to breast cancer.  I played with UTEE for the first time and I think I am in love.  I put like 4 layers and stamped the dress form, here is a close up...

Pretty awesome seeing that it started off as a piece of cardboard!  I do on the other hand have UTEE all over my table and floors!! haha!  I am really happy with this album and love the fabric ties as well.  The inside of the album is all pink as well!  I just LOVE how the dress form came out, I'm totally in love with it!
