It's a Scrap and Play kind of day!

For this Spooky challenge at Scarp & Play, I decided to use my Cricut and cut out this adorable Halloween banner that was created by Mary from SVGCuts. I really like the vintages look of these pumpkins. 

Orange, yellow and black cardstock: Stampin' UP!

Leaves from my tree.

Waiting for Squirrels!

I was told that if I planted an oak tree that the little squirrels would come. That is not the case here. 10 years and still waiting. So since I was longing to have something fun and cute in my tree, I thought how cute it would be to hang acorn boxes from the tree as a fall decoration. Mary from Svgcuts has created the perfect box to support my great idea. I plan to insert a string and magnetize the lids so that when they are filled with little gifts, they will stay closed. 

I entered my box in this challenge at StuckOnUSketches.

I really do love the softness of the beautiful papers from the DCWV collection called Old World Stack.

A Creative Scrappers Challenge

It has been such a long time since I have taken on a Creative Scrappers challenge. Here is the link to this fun sketch.

I decided to keep it simple and mainly use just papers and stickers for my embellishments. I love how Simple Stories kits are so easy to work with.

Stampin' Up!: Blue cardstock and corner punch

This has been a great month for me in the world of scrapping and card making. I have placed top 3 on some of the challenge blogs, I have even won a few contest here and there but the best news is, that I am now part of the Let’s Capture Our Momories Design Team. I can’t wait to share my work with you.

We're All Mad Here....

I was almost late for this very important date! Today is the last day to partake in this fun challenge hosted by StuckOnUSketches.

I thought, how cute it would be to create a mushroom card and add some of Alice in Wonderland characters. Mary from SVG Cuts, has the greatest files to work with. I used the mushroom card from the Enchanted Autumn SVG Kit and then used the Alice's Cuddly Friends to embellish my card. This card makes me smile every time that I look at it.

My papers are AC Cardstock and DCWV and the bling is Darcy.

Thanks for Looking

CMS challenge #71

I was in the mood for Halloween and having so many old Halloween photos waiting to be scrapped, I decided to create a layout of my son all dressed up as Howard the Duck. The words "bad movie" is an understatement. But since my husband worked on it, (not a proud moment in his life), Ryann insisted that he wanted to be Howard for Halloween. 

Since my photos are from the late 80's, I thought that it would only be appropriate to use old stuff out of my stash. My orange card stock is Stampin' Up!, the Halloween borders are from a Debbie Mumm calendar kit and my spider, cat and candy corn die cuts are a K&Company from a few years back. I am not certain who made the alpha minis or the yarn. I love how my papers from the calendar kit were a perfect match for the CMS challenge #71
