Tricks and Treats Blog Hop!

Here is a crafty way to kick off your Halloween celebrations this weekend!  The girls over at Blog Hops with Heart put together some sweet treats for you to browse, so grab your loot bag and start hopping!

This project was a bit over two years in the making...I just never had a chance to see it through until now.  I'm rather glad though since I now have some sparkly white glitter paper and the new Adventure Fundamentals to use...

I used a great 3D box shape from the now retired Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  I used my Cricut Explore machine to create triangular panels for each side, then resized them all to create some different heights.  I loved being able to bling these up a bit with sequins and black shimmer ribbon.

I just LOVE playing with paper and bling!!!!  

Thanks so much for popping in today to check out our projects!  Now hop on over to Becca's blog to see what treats she has up her sleeve!

Here's the whole line up for our hop (can you tell I'm watching baseball??? GO CUBS!):

Hello World Artbooking Layout

This is the perfect example of how long it takes me to get some projects glued down...I cut it out at least two years ago, but finally finished it up at a recent all day scrapbooking event.  In case you feel a little behind in your own scrapbooks, this kiddo just turned 13...yeah, lol.  My layout has cuts from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge from Close to My Heart and features some new complement stickers as well as some old pattern fundamentals paper.

My favorite part of the layout is the sunburst background cut.  I thought it would be the perfect way to display her birth announcement and pic. 

It's never too late to get those baby pictures into an album!  ;)

Jeepers Creepers it's October!!!

Jeepers, it's already October!  I have to say that I love my new personal scrapbooking rules, especially the one that allows me to scrapbook any pics in ANY order!  I highly suggest such a method.  It gets stuff done.

Last weekend I was able to continue working on the baby book of MY baby (who happens to turn 13 this weekend, whaaaaaaaaat?)  I couldn't WAIT to give this layout I saw on the CTMH Facebook Page a try... 

I did, of course, give it my own twist with a different orientation...and even threw in one of the Picture My Life cards included in the Jeepers Creepers Paper Packet!

This page was super easy to put together with all the coordinating pieces in the Jeepers Creepers Paper Workshop Your Way and the coordinating colors in the Adventure CS pack.  I LOVE how CTMH coordinates all the paper suites to make my scrapping SUPER easy!  :)

Only in October!
