I figured it was time to add a Halloween recap to my blog (better late than never, right?!) when we woke up to SNOW this morning! Nooooooooo! Not yet! Holidays . . . here you come!
Halloween was quite interesting this year. We had RAIN . . . which equals lots of soggy trick-or-treaters. Thank heavens I captured pictures of the kids before it hit hard. :)
Jensyn was Little Red Riding Hood (the most modest costume we could find in the catalog for her age group . . . *sigh!*). Owen went with the Orange Pilot Star Wars costume, Maryn was a Magical Fairy, and Camryn was Jasmine from Aladdin. :)
Can you tell Maryn was NOT in the mood to take pictures . . . I think she was mad at me for delaying their "trick-or-treating" with our traditional Hallween photoshoot. LOL! I'll give her credit for mustering up her best fake smile. :)
The organizing and opening of the new Cricut Circle Blog has been quite the task these past few months, but believe it or not . . . I *think* I am starting to get in a routine and am working on creating regularly again! YIPPEEEEE!!!! :D I've missed my craft table!
I know Halloween is old news by now. ;) But I still thought I would share with you a few things I made for the holiday.
SPIDEY TREATS - Oh, my gosh! I found the cutest little kraft bags at Michael's Craft store one day. They measure approximately 2.5" wide by 3.5" tall. I embossed them with the Cuttlebug Argyle Embossing Folder, added a simple orange circle, and then topped them off with the spider from the Doodlecharms cartridge. I LOVE that little spider! He especially looks cute with wacky googly eyes! :) I stapled the bags closed using the Fastenator. Remember that tool?! This project made me love it all over again and now I'm on the hunt for some refills. :)
GHOST CARD - This card was made using the Mini Monsters cartridge. Love all the cute playful images included on this cartridge!
And . . . don't be too shocked now . . . I made a scrapbook page!
THE LOOT - This picture was actually from last Halloween (trying to catch up!), but shows the typical morning after Halloween at our household. :) Kids sorting candy and getting ready to exercise their trading power. Is this a tradition at your house, too? Page created with the adorable Blackbird collection by My Mind's Eye.
THANK YOU for stopping by! I know it's been awhile, but I promise I am working on getting back to regularly blogging. ;) I appreciate you taking the time to visit me.
Have a great week!
