Welcome to the Halloween/Fall Blog Hop!!

Today, I'm part of the Halloween/Fall Blog Hop that is being hosted by Steph at Always Crafting and I'm so excited!!! I have been itching to do another Blog Hop since I did the Back to School Blog Hop so I was HONORED that Steph asked me to be part of this one! :) There will be 11 crafty ladies (including myself) along the blog hop with TONS of great projects!!! And I'm sure there will be some blog candy along the way too!  Carol and Barrie, from scrapadabadoo have agreed to sponsor the hop and they have donated a FANTASTIC prize!!! So one person will have the opportunity to win both the Tim Holtz On The Edge Die and a Kaiser Craft Paper Pack  (Jades Garden). Now the very special part is the Die will be Autographed by Tim Holtz himself!!! Be sure to check out Steph's blog for details on how to win this fantastic prize!! Now you should have joined me from Melissa's blog but if you've just stumbled upon my blog, your going to want to start at Steph's blog and hop along to see all of the phenomenal projects and blog candy!!  Ok so onto my project for the hop! I kept is super simple....its been a bit of a chaotic weekend (Thank Goodness for my m.w.bff, Molly who brought me back down to "Scrapping" earth hehehe) and I was trying to finish a mini I've been working on but it just didn't work on in my favor.  So, I created these cute little candy holders to give to trick or treaters!!!!


For this project I used the Pillow Box from the Wedding Solutions cartridge. (Got the cartridge with cricut rewards points and mainly for this pillow box!) I just love it, it can be used for SOOOO many different things and occasions.  Of course, the cute little mummy and candy corn girl is from Mini Monsters (and her face is from non-other than Everyday Faces from Peachy Keen).  AND OF COURSE, both sentiments are from the Scrappy Mom's "A Haunting we will Go" Stamp set! I use these stamps WAY too much but they are just perfect with your Cricut projects and non-Cricut projects.....and they have 7 different sets!!! {How am I doing Mel??? Am I selling it or what?!?! LOL.....BIG Shout out to Scrappy Mel who deals with Sarah(Live, Love, and Scrap!) and I always harassing her about us wanting to be part of the design team for their stamps! But we cant help it...we just LOVE their stamps)} 

So my project was SUPER simple but I think it turned out pretty cute!! And I think the kids will really like it! This is the first time Jesse (my hubby) and I have lived in a "neighborhood", so we're hoping to get trick or treaters to hand these out to!

Now off to the FANTASTIC Sonia from Archiving Angel for another super project!

  86. The best birthday gift ever was the birthday I remember the most. I turned thirteen, my mother forgot my birthday so she rushed out to get me a birthday cake and then dropped it on the front porch but made it up with some beautiful turquoise earrings. That was 39 years ago and I still have one of the earrings.

  87. love the candy cake with the banner Momo b-day that ... everyone make beautifully productive jobs and ideas
