What I Love About Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to the What I Love About Halloween Blog Hop. This hop 10/7 at 8 am through 10/8 at 11 pm central time. 

If you just happened to come across this blog posting, be sure to head back to the beginning here at Lisa's blog. If you got here by the way of Lisa's blog, you're on the right track! 

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous line up with some very talented ladies. There will be a lot of great projects, along with some awesome blog candy, and a great GRAND PRIZE for this hop. Again, this is a two day hop so you will have plenty of time to hop through, and you def don't want to skip a beat going through this hop with all the awesome blog candy being offered! 

For the GRAND PRIZE you must visit each blog and leave a comment. You MUST also visit Lisa's blog, which is the first blog in the hop, or by clicking HERE. You also must become a fan of her fan page, leave a comment on her blog for each day. Be sure to let her know if you don't do Facebook so that it won't be counted against you. 

Here is the complete line-up. 

Now on the my project that I created to share with you all today. So, this is a "What I Love About Halloween" blog hop, so one of the things I absolutely LOVE about Halloween is getting to see my two boys dressed up in their costumes. I'm not much of a decorator for the holiday's, so it's no different with Halloween. I know so many people that truly love Halloween to just decorate, well I just LOVE to see my boys dressed up! With that said, I created this layout of them dressed up a few (ok a little more then a few) years ago. My oldest was a ghoulish monster and my youngest was a convict. I think he was the cutest convict around! : ) 

On this layout I used the new DCWV Halloween stack that I TOTALLY love!! I distressed the edges to give it a creepy Halloween feel to it. I also used the Scraptastical Kreations "A Haunted Halloween" set for the moon, ghost, and bats. I also used the "Sophisticated Scallops" set for the journaling box as well. 

Just for you blog hoppers, Scraptastical Kreations is having a two day sale just for you all!! How fun is that, right?!?! If you make a purchase of $25.00 or more on Friday October 7th or Saturday October 8th, you will get 60% off your entire purchase!! You cannot beat that!!

You will need to use coupon code HBLOGHOP in order to receive your discount. 

NOW... on to the blog candy!
