Happy Halloween!

I didn't have much of a chance to make many Halloween decorations for home, but I did make this "Potion" bottle out of a empty bottle of very expensive tequilla!  It was just the perfect shape for something like this and too cool a bottle NOT to be reused for something!  I am happy with how it came out!

Halloween Scrapbook, part 2

Here are a couple more photos from the Halloween Scrapbook for the Grands!
Love this Cat!  Black glitter paper, Gem Eyes and wire whiskers! 
This is the 2 page spread with that bouncy spider.
Details of the acorn...embossed and raised for dimension.
For some reason I think acorns are just so cute! 

Halloween Album for My Grandkids

During my recovery from foot surgery I've been keeping busy by making a Halloween scrapbook for
Aubrey, Lainey and Cooper.  It's for them to add their Halloween traditions each year.  Here are a few of the pages.  It's been such a fun project and I hope they enjoy it!
The Spider is wired on the web and "bounces"!

The Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge

I occassionally find a contest that I would like to enter but they need a photo of the project or they ask that you post a link to your blog.  I rarely take photos before sending my gifts off....but now I've started a blog and I will try to do a better job of it!
I am a member of the Cricut Circle and this week's challenge is to create something that has a transparent element to it.  I made this cute Monster to send to my daughter in college, along with some other items she needed.  I made him with the Mini Monster Cricut Cartridge and the Platin Schoolbook Cartridge and used a Stampin' Up clear  treat container and filled it with peanuts.  I also used a lot of paper scraps from my scrap pile as well as cute googly eyes!
I think he's cute...what about you?

My First Blog Post!

Hello Everyone!I have read and enjoyed many scrapbooking and baking blogs.  Occassionally I will have someone ask
to see some of my recent projects.  I have been terrible about taking photographs of my projects before sending them off to whoever is the recipient of my project. With this blog I will hopefully remember to take some pictures to show my work!
So welcome and please comment!
