This week for my Saturday Post over at Scraptastical Kreations, I made a 2-page layout. I used the haunted house from A Haunted Halloween ( ), and the October bear from the Calender Cuties ( ). This was so much fun to make! The Haunted House was so easy to put together and didn't come with too many parts to cut. I'm lazy sometimes and I don't like cutting out a thousand pieces for one paper piecing! LOL

Friday's Challenge

The DT Challenge for this week is a Countdown Challenge! We all had to use: 5 Flourishes, 4 Flowers, 3 Brads, 2 Patterned Papers & 1 Paper Piecing.  I used the flourishes from the Flower #2 in the Elegant Florals file, .  The flowers were made with the Flower #7 in the same file.  The paper piecing file was the My Sunshine file, .

Trick or Treat anyone?

Hi.  The weather out here (Texas) has been beautiful lately.  It's still a little warm for fall but I'm putting myself in the Halloween spirit by making the decorations myself. 

This past week, I made some treat bags to go along with the treat boxes I've already created.  Used the same files for these, the Sophisticated Scallops and Too Cute to Spook files from Scraptastical Kreations.  They are so cute!  Wish I had tons of time to make a lot more of these!

Halloween Treat Boxes

Continuing with the Halloween theme... I made some treat boxes for my niece and nephews.  I love how these turned out!  I used the Sizzix French Fry Box die for the box. It's on sale this week!  The boxes are so easy to put together.  Also used the Ghost in Pumpkin from the Too Cute to Spook file ( ) and the Sophisticated Scallops file ( ) at Scraptastical Kreations.  Hope they like them!!!

Halloween Banner

 Since we are quickly approaching Halloween, I have decided that most of my projects will be Halloween decorations and party ideas. Starting off, I have made a banner. I used the Sophisticated Scallops file at Scraptastical Kreations to create the pennants. The monsters were made with the Monsters R Us file. Banners are so much fun to create! Below I have taken a close-up pic of some of the monsters.

Friday DT Challenge at Scraptastical Kreations

This week our challenge is to use the colors pink, white and chocolate.  These are my 2nd set of colors to play with.  I created a layout using the Baked with Love gingerbread file.  This was so much fun!  These little gingerbreads were so easy to construct.  One of my favorite files thus far.  The paper I used is from My Mind's Eye and is the Love Nest collection.  It is glittered!  I used the polka dot papers in the pack.  Page 1 is below.

This is page 2 (shown below). 

Sorry about the bad pictures. I took these with my cell phone and really bad lighting.

Love layout

Just wanted to share with you quickly a layout I had created a couple of weeks ago.  I love this layout.  It turned out so cute.  I have this up in my living room on a photo easel.  This is a photo of my husband and I in January.  The flowers make it too thick for a scrapbook album or even a shadow frame.  I shouldn't have made them so thick! It looks really pretty on the easel though.  It was so much fun to make.  It came along so easily... don't you love it when that happens?  These papers are my favorite to work with, the worded paper and the polka dot paper.  The berries are from a long stem I bought.  I tore, distressed and curled the papers.  Love doing this!

Scraptastical Kreations DT Challenge

Hi!  This is my first official design team post for Scraptastical Kreations.  The challenge this week is to use a song title or song lyrics in your layout.  I chose to use a song title... "Angel Baby" by Rosie and the Originals.  This is one of my favorite songs of all time.  I used the Angelic Bear and the flower # 3 from the Elegant Florals file to create the roses. 

Hope you like it!  I had a lot of fun making this layout.
