Frightfully Monday...BOO!

Yes...sometimes Monday can just be a frightening thing! This weekend we received our first snow of the winter (and really we are still in fall) I am worried that this is going to be a hard winter and snow and I just do not mix that well...oh well lots of snow pictures of the kiddos right? Meanwhile I have my Starbucks apple cider by my side and trying to stay warm this morning!

So I have a few creations to share with you today! This week over at BBTB we were challenge to use the little monster from the Paper Dolls cartridge. I recently picked this cartridge up on a steal of a deal and I have to be honest and say I am not sure it will be a cartridge that I will use a lot but it does have a lot of fun cuts on it that are not just paper dolls, this week being one of them :) I jazzed up my little monster by adding one eye with a small button with a pearl in the middle. I also pulled out my Storybook cartridge and used a cut off of it for the background. The bottom was punched out using a Martha Steward punch. The sentiment was stamped with a small package of 3 clear stamps by Making Memories that I had picked up at Michaels a couple of weeks ago...I have a lot more fun things planned for these stamps, so stay tuned ;)


Here's my card:

Also, the October issue of Scrapstreet Magazine has been out a few weeks and this month we as designers were able to work with some Halloween products from Reminisce. I completed a Halloween layout of my daughter Ashlee (she was a pirate princess last year), a card, and I "up-cycled" a tin from Maya Road and turned it into a tic-tac-toe game...they kids are loving it :) Anyway, I thought since today has a Halloween theme I might as well share all of these creations today as well.



Have a happy week everyone!
