Halloween blog hop!!


Good morning and welcome to our Halloween blog hop!  We have severalvery talented ladies who will be sharing fun Halloween projects with you today, to hopefully inspire you to create some Halloween crafts of your own!  If you just happened upon my blog, you are at the beginning, so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the hop!  There will be some fun giveaways along the way, so be sure to hop by each of the blogs so you don't miss any!

For my project today, I made a BOO banner!  My son is having a trunk or treat at his preschool next week, so I wanted to make it to decorate my trunk!  I went fairly simple but I think it turned out pretty cute - my son loved it and that's all that matters to me!  :-)


I hung it on my mantle for now, so we can enjoy it until we need it for the trunk or treat. My bats didn't want to all fly the same way and with the ceiling fan on, they were all flipping around, as was the BOO, so excuse the pictures! I'm not good at taking banner pics - they are so not easy to photograph!

I embossed the BOO using my Cuttlebug and Seeing Spots embossing folder.


The ghosts and bats were both from Paper Doll Dress Up cricut cart, the BOO was from Robotz - I love that font!!  I used The Twinery twine to string the banner as well as hang the BOO from the banner.  All the cardstock was from my stash.

I'm entering this into Challenge #83 - Spooky Time (create a project with a ghost on it) - at Fantabulous Cricut challenge blog.

I do have a giveaway today, all you have to do to be eligible to win is be a follower of my blog, live in the United States and leave a comment on this post with a way to contact you!  I will draw the winner on Sunday morning, Oct 30!  I couldn't find anything Halloween related that I loved for the giveaway, so I picked up one of my favorite mat stacks instead - the colors are amazing!
