Halloween Projects

I have a couple of Halloween projects that I got finished just in the nick of time.

I found these from my friend Michelles' blog Scrappin with my Bug. These were fun to make and everyone who got one really liked them. Oh yeah, the candy wasn't bad either.

I found this idea from Sherrie Scraps with Passion, another blog that I visit. I loved this so much I completely lifted this. This was another fun project, but took a little time to finish. However, the finished product was awesome. My niece and 2 nephews really loved them.

Thought you might like to see what I placed into the treat boxes. There is some sixlets and stick candy and these cute little voodoo doll keychains. I thought these fit the occasion and the boxes perfectly.

I hope everyone has enjoyed my projects as much as I enjoyed making them. Big hugs to you all!

Juneau Alaska Layouts

Here are the Alaska layouts I finished up last night at my crop. I still have so many more pictures to do and this is just the first port of call. Oh well, I am tackling them one layout at a time. Have a wonderful evening and BIG hugs to you all!

The first two layouts I loved the flowers and just some scenery. The one with me and the polar bears were taken up on Mt. Roberts. I have actually had a couple people ask me if I really fed the bears. I had to snicker, because I really don't think I would get that close to polar bears, even if I could.

This is the salmon bake we went to. It was really nice there. It was pretty chilly, but not to bad. They had heaters all over to make it comfortable.

This big fella was at the salmon bake enjoying all the attention he was getting. He was a sweety, a bit smelly, but sweet.

Another Post

Last night I was able to go to our monthly crop and I wanted to share with you some of my layouts. These two are photos that I had in frames and I wanted to get them into my scrapbook. This is my nephew Allen when he was a little fella, he's 11 now.

Halloween Card

I wanted to share with you the Halloween card I got in the mail from my friend Dana. I love the vintage look to it.

Big Hugs to you all!
