This is a fun hanging sign I made this weekend. I can't remember if I found these unfinished letters at Michaels or JoAnn's but wanted to give them a makeover - here's the "before" picture:

The letters are pretty big, about 6" tall, so it made a nice big hanging sign. I used the new "Scared Silly" kit by Dani Mogstad and Jacque Larsen. I love the paper and embellishments in this kit!

Got some fun news from Julie Ann over at Everyday Digital Scrapbooking, she asked me to be the Guest Designer for November so I am thrilled! I got a peek at some of the things that'll be going on there in November and although my lips are sealed, I can tell you that you might want to mark your calendars to check in during the month cause there's good stuff coming!

I Want Candy...

( Click for larger view)

Got a new card up on Di's blog. I used some really cute Halloween papers by American Traditional Designs, Bazzill, ribbon and some buttons. I made the black border along the center with my Cricut Expression and the Accent Essentials cartridge. I picked up the new Cricut Expression a few weeks ago when AC Moore had the bundle package (the machine, mat, 4 cartridges and the markers) on sale. I still have my original Cricut, don't know what I'm going to do with it- its stuck in the closet for now.

That's about it for now - hope to have more stuff to share really soon.....

A Halloween Goodie and Some Cards

I'm not sure if you would call this a bag or a box - it's a wooden box shaped like a bag. I wanted to make something Halloweenish with Dani Mogstad's new Spookable kit and I had two of these bag-boxes in my storage cabinet so this is what I came up with:

I designed the elements and then after I got it all assembled I realized it was the same saying that was used on the candy tent from the Design by Dani October wonder it seemed like a good saying to put on a candy bag, I had just seen it there.

BTW - Dani's having a sale right now to celebrate the the store's 2nd birthday so check it out:

Here are some cards I did for Di Hickman's Sketch Blog, the bottom one is a digi card as you can probably tell:

Make sure to check out her blog to see all the cute cards the sketch girls did!

Happy Thursday!
