Happy Halloween!

Decided to take the day off from work today
since the boy was out off of school today.
It was great just to relax and hang out together.
So since I didn't have to be up at stupid-o'clock
this morning I stayed up late last night playing round.
I've been messing around with some
ideas for a wall hanging for Halloween
and have been wanting to do something fun
with the Authentique halloween line.
And this is what I came up with...

Products used: Shadowbox frame - Kaiser Craft; Patterned paper - Authentique;
Stamps - Pink Paislee; Embossing powder - Zing;grungeboard - Tim Holtz; vine - Prima; flowers - Prima;
spider - Pottery Barn; black spray paint; Ingvild Bolme Prima distresser; stickles; mist - Tattered Angels

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend
and Halloween! Enjoy all the treats! :)

A quick card & frame

Thought I would get an early
start on Thanksgiving this year by
making some cards to send to family.
I've only been saying every year that I
want to make cards and send them....
needless to say...this is the 1st year ;)

I love the new Orchard Harvest Spellbinders
and couldn't wait to use them....
ONLY I had to wait because I then found the
matching stamps to the dies at Unity Stamps! :)

Got the stamps yesterday and just had
to play with them...was driving home
from work praying that we wouldn't
have a TON of homework tonight...
WE DIDN'T!!!! Yeah me!

Products used: Kraft Cardstock-Paprertrey Ink; Patterned Paper - Echo Park Victoria Gardens;
Brown paper - Basic Grey; Stamps - Unity; Dies-Orchard Harvest Spellbinders;
Stickles; Copic Markers; ribbon - Michaels; jute

And I finally finished the frame that I started
to go with the shadowbox frame that I previously posted.
I had made that with a album and I wanted to make
something for her husband-to-be also...
He told me that this picture that I used
is one of his favorites so I coordinated with the
things that I made for her and made him a frame for
his desk.

Products used: Frame - Michaels; Patterned Paper - Pink Paislee Nantucket;
Cardstock - Papertry Ink; Punch - EK Success; Ink - Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dyed;
Fasteners - Tim Holtz; Flower - Pink Paislee Mistable Flower; Mist - Tattered Angels; Bling - Zva

Overall a pretty simple frame to do and makes a great gift!

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy the rest of your week! :)

As I have mentioned before...
I LOVE this time of year!
I love that the weather cools
off just a touch (I'm in ONLY cools off a touch!)
I LOVE decorating the house for fall
and for Halloween and I still love
taking Jake to the pumpkin patch...
even if he gripes the whole way there...
I'm not even sure if he will go next year... :(
He is growing up so fast and everyday there
is just ONE more thing that he is getting to old to do...
Or that just isn't COOL to do...
So I am trying to enjoy it for as long as it lasts...

Jake was not thrilled to be taking pictures...

I just thought this pumpkin was so cool looking :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great week :)

LOVE decorating for Halloween!

One of my ALL time favorite times of the year is Fall...
Unfortunately living in Florida we don't get a REAL Fall :(
So.. I make a great attempt of at least decorating so that it
feels more like it. This past weekend I started pulling some of the
decorations out of the attic from hell and got a few things up...
I love it!

I made this Halloween banner last year for Jake's
Halloween party... Still LOVE it!

Happy decorating :)
