Halloween, Baby, and Tutorial...and All That Jazz!

It's a hodge podge of creativity today.  So here we go...

This is the last of my Halloween layouts.  This is my next to the oldest granddaughter.  We spent Trick or Treat night with her and her family.  We walked, ran, played throughout the whole neighborhood.  It was fun to see the adults getting into the fun with the kids.  The kids were very creative.  One thing about H and her friend...they never got tired.  Unlike Meme and Papa.  LOL

Ingredients:  Graphic 45's Happy Haunting Halloween paper collection, die cut letters; Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink; Graphic 45 project sheet.

I subscribe to Graphic 45's newsletter and they regularly add project sheets for their subscribers.  I couldn't pass this up.

Fun note:  none of my paper was "whole."  I had cut images from all the papers.  So I pieced it together and the paper layering took care of most if the "holes" I had created cutting out and making my own embellishments.

Oh, Baby Baby!
I've entered my layout of Ali in a contest over at Scrapbook Awards.  I would love your votes.  No signing in or signing up.  Just a click.  Here is the link:  blessings.  Help me blow the lid off the voting for my little granddaughter. 

Everyone is in the middle of their winter, holiday, and or Christmas crafting.  Here is a tutorial on how you can use your Fiskars/Jenni Bowlin's Grandma's Doily punch to make snowflakes.  Walk with me down memory lane!

Next week we will be starting the countdown to the blog event you don't want to miss:  12 Days of Home for the Holidays!

Have a Crafty Day!
