Our projects for today were to incorporate one or more of the following: Polka dots, fairies, cherries, pin-up girls, or a 1950's theme. For my project I chose to go with the cherries. So, here is my cherry gift card holder. The sentiment is suppose to say "Wishing You a Cherri-ful BIRTHDAY".Yes, I made a mistake and didn't even realize it until I was cropping my photo. OOPS! lol

My 1st Halloween Layout

Hey Scrappy Friends,

I know a lot of you that follow my blog do not do the whole Facebook thing, so I thought I would take a few minutes to share with everyone a layout that I created and shared on the fan page yesterday. I created this layout using the "A Haunted Halloween" set from Scraptastical Kreations. You can find that set HERE if you're interested. 

Along with that patterns I used the Halloween Recollections paper pack from Michael's. I LOVE these packs!! They're SO worth the money! You get 24 sheets of paper and 4 pieces per design and there are 6 designs in the pack ALL for only $4.99!! What a steal! It was awesome when they had a sale a few weeks ago and they were 3 for $10! You can get 2 or more layouts out of one pack of paper! Awesome!! 

Now on to the layout. This is titled "My 1st Halloween". I'm super happy with the way this one came out. I wanted my bears to be a little bit bigger but I made a goof, and it all worked out in the end. 

I hope I have inspired you to create something Halloween with this layout. It will be upon us very soon! It seems like this year is totally flying by!!! 

Happy Scrappin',

TWO Winners.....

Yes, I am horrible with getting my winners posted in a timely manner. I guess that's what happens when life and business take a hold of you. We had football camp for 3 weeks and at the beginning of August went right into regular football, so to say the least it has been a mad house around here. Not to mention trying to get these rug rats ready to go back to school this week too. Phewwww... I'll be SUPER happy when it slows down! : ) 

Any whoooo.... I have a couple of winners here from two blog hops I was in recently. 

The first winner is from the Design Team Blog hop. The $10.00 GC to Scraptastical Kreations goes to Callyanne. Congrats, Callyanne! Please email me at scraptasticalkreations.com with your choice of files totally $10. You can see all of the files I have on the website here at Scraptastical Kreations. 

The next winner is from the It's My Birthday Blog hop. The winner of the $10 GC to Scraptastical Kreations is.............. mjblanhnik56 - Congrats!! Please email me at scraptasticalkreations@gmail.com with your selection of any files you would like totaling $10. You can view all the fun files here at Scraptastical Kreations.

Congrats to both winners and thanks so much for everyone having patience in me posting the winners, and also for hopping along on these two wonderful hops!!
