Trick or Treat!

Welcome to the Monster Mash Blog Hop!!!

Thanks so much for joining us!
If you got here from My Pink Life then you are on the right track. :)

If you just happened to stumble upon my blog and found the hop, all the fun starts at
She is offering a Scrap 'N Tote for the grand prize! Make sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs along the way to be eligible.


I am so excited to be a part of this hop (my very first)! There are a lot of great blogs with some very talented ladies on this hop today and you aren't going to want to miss any of the fun. :)

The theme for this hop is Halloween. I hope you enjoy all the great Halloween projects along the way!


For my Halloween project, I decided to make a treat bag.

I love that little waving skeleton!
I used my cricut expression to cut out the bag from Plantin Schoolbook at 7 1/4"

The white mat is 3 5/8" by 4 5/8" and the orange mat is 3 3/8" by 4 3/8".

I rounded the corners and then

I ran the orange mat through my cuttlebug with the spots and dots embossing folder.

For the skeleton, cat and bat, I used the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge.

I cut out the skeleton at 4" and used the black cricut marker to outline him.

The cat and the bat were both cut out at 2 1/2". I used my white signo gel pen to highlight some of the cut details on both.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up (Seasonal Sentiments) stamped in Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink.

I matted the sentiment onto some black card stock and popped it up with some foam dots.

Then I drew some white stitch lines with my white signo gel pen and assembled the bag.

I finished it off with a bow. :)


Pretty simple to make and I am so happy with the end result.



Halloween wouldn't be complete without a little candy, would it?

I am going to give one lucky winner the following 2 cuttlebug embossing folders :

Skeleton Scroll


&

Boo To You



All you have to do to be eligible to win is:

1: Become a follower of my blog
&

2: Post a comment (make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you win)

Only one comment per person please

How simple is that?

I will use Random.org to pick a winner on Tuesday (10/19/2010)

(Note: I ordered the above items 2 weeks ago and they were shipped out 10/13/2010 and are expected to be at my door on Tuesday Oct. 19, 2010)
