Spooky Giveaway!


Well hello Monday...and my fabulous blogging friends! I hope you had a great weekend...I spent time crafting, watching football, with good friends & my favorite restaurant. I have nothing to 
complain about! 

Small Side Track: I had some requests on a video of how to properly tear out your paper from a stack to ensure that you don't rip the paper...so HERE it is! And if you watch, you "may" see a fabulous peek at a fabulous {new} holiday stack :)

When I was working the the featured project today, my boys totally wanted me to consider their input and they were very {into} the end result. (must have been the googly eyes) 

So I loved playing with {more} halloween goodies!! I love how perfectly our Midnight Spell Stack works with the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge! I had an empty frame that I wanted to spruce up for the holiday, loved all of the different "phrase" options on this cartridge...


Cut out the "Spooky" saying and shadow...framed the 8x10 spider printed paper...added the Spooky on top of the mat....added rhinestones & googly eyes (everything is cuter with googly eyes right?)
Added the frame and my favorite May Arts ribbon!


So who wants to win some goodies?! To be specific, who wants to win:


Yes, all three. Aren't we nice?! :)

Here is how you can win:

1. Post a comment on this blog post telling me your favorite Halloween costume of yours or your children.
2. Become a follower of this blog (leave a separate blog post telling me this)

  5. My favorite costume was when my daughter made my 5 year old grandson dress as a penguin when all of the other boys cousins dressed as ninjas and warriors. He just did not like his costume, the look on his face was priceless when he seen the other boys. http://pammejo-scrapbookflair.blogspot.com/

  33. Hi Erin,
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I L-O-V-E Halloween too! My favorite costume memory has to be of my son Jacob's when he was a plump little pumpkin at 2 years old. My DF and DMIL were both in nursing homes at the time and Jacob was quite a hit when he showed up. In fact, I think he insisted on wearing it every night for a whole week and everyone made a big fuss every time LOL!

  78. My favorite Halloween costume...hmmm... several - but the first that comes to mind is the Princess Leia costume I put together in college for a party. I had draped white sheets around me into a robe with a hood, a phaser tucked into my belt and of course, did my hair into the famous hair "donuts" on each side of my head. HA!Sad part is that I don't even have a picture of it.

  89. I'm a follwer/subcriber. My fav. costume for my son (now 10) was when he was about 3 years old. He had this motorized "Harley" and we dressed him up in some jeans with a few holes, drew a facial hair on him, put a "dew rag" on his head and drew a few tattoos on his arm (my fav a heart that said mom). He drove his motorcycle around to trick or treat. It was so flipping cute. I need paper (already have the Happy Hauntings cart., actually I just ordered it, waiting for it to get here) to create some awesome projects (either stack will do).
