October Kit layouts

Only a few days to go... I personally enjoy Halloween and all the fun it brings. It can be a challenge to decorate our home, because hubby likes the spooky, scary decorations, but I would prefer all the Fall theme items like pumpkins, leaves, and scarecrows. Again this year we have a mixed theme going on in our home.
I, also, love to dress up the girls. Lucky for us, they are not into the scary costumes {yet} but I remember wearing the spooky masks and scary the little kids when I was a teenager.
This month I got to work with the Halloween theme kit. Here are two Halloween layouts....
Love this orange background {it's my favorite color}.

And the white fence works great with this kit....

It can be tricky, but just because the paper is Halloween theme, doesn't mean it has to be used for a Halloween project. Here I used the kit to create a layout that is not Halloween theme.
What a fun kit!

halloween is almost here!!!!

i'm kicking off my week to host the challenge, questions, and such with this fun halloween prject my daughter (alexa she is 7) and i made!
have you picked up the halloween kit yet?? you do not want to miss this one! as you've seen from my first post in october, it's not just for halloween!!!

now back to this cute project!

i added the cardstock and the martha stewart drippy goo punch and some qk cut numbers.

i used my 7/8" circle punch then alternated the 2 pattern papers (making sure not to line them up to match this octobers days of the week, this way we can share this for years to come!)

i put the "october 31st" sticker from the kit on foam adhesive, and added it to a pattern paper scrap, thn cut arond it with a pinking scissor.

i backed the project with a chipboard sheet from a paper pad so it would not bend over time!

alexa wants to make one for every holiday, so be on the look out for more of these!!

i hope you are insired to make one and share it with us this week on the scraptacular forum!

October Kit

Some layouts using the October kit from Scraptacular...

yay for saturday!

hope everyone had a great week! we're getting closer to halloween,yay!!! do you know how much i love halloween?? i never dress up (i do wear a happy halloween t-shirt though lol) but i DO LOVE to decorate!! oh and i LOVE candy corn, YUMMYY!!!!!
the border around this page was punched with one of my martha stewart scallop punched. then i did a little accordian fold to each strip. i ran my atg where i wanted to place the border and just stretched it out a bit.
the houses on the botton are on foam adhesive.
i used the smaller circle of bling left over from the page i shared last week to highlight the date.

dress rehersal!

my little guy is not a fan of things on his head, nor does love anything other than his clothes on him.

so we had a little practice, and after a little while he enjoyed being an adorable robot!!!

this page on an angle. i distressed the embossed cardstock that comes with the kit. i used the smaller bling circle and put the "R2" on foam adhesive. the words frist and 2010, and the top layered pumkin are also on foam adhesive.

Weekly Challenge

Lisa posted a wonderful challenge this week in the forum. She wants everyone to scrap their back to school pics. It is that simple!! Fortunately, I did accepted this challenge! Now my pictures don't look like typical back to school pictures, but these were taken the day that Audra started preschool. Actually, they were taken about 15 minutes before we got in the car to go to preschool.

I used the Basic Grey Sugar Rush kit that I got from the Scraptacular store, & I used a sketch from Nuts About Sketches.

If you accept Lisa's challenge, please head on over to the forum & share with us your Back to School layouts!

Thanks for stopping by today!
