Happy Halloween

This year I decided to decorate my fireplace, like I did at Christmas last year.
So the kids and I filled the firebox with pumpkins and haunted houses.
Look what I found at Home Sense last week.
Don't these glass pumpkins look like

Don't they remind you of the work of Dale Chihuly?
I really love this one above.

I got this blue one last year.  It has a light built in the bottom. 

Here's a look at the display during the day.

And here it is at night.

I love the orange Christmas lights.
I've been collecting these pumpkins for my classroom for years.
Last year I brought them home.  My kids love them.

I hope that you and your families have a wonderful night.
thanks again for stopping by.

Colour Q Challenge #213

This cute little photo is of my hubby and my son when he was a few weeks old  I've never really scrapped it before because its such a small and slightly out of focus photo.  And the colours are a bit funky in it.  But I put it through Pixlr and gave it an instagram type look.
Hop on over to the Colour Q and check out the samples from the Royal Court.
I used these kits and templates to create this page.

Simple Cards

I bought this beautiful paper pack (from American Crafts) last year from Target, when I was in California.  Recently I found the matching blank cards at Winners - the Canadian Ross store.  I put them together and came up with this cute card.  The card stock is from Stampin' Up and the Die cuts are from Nestabilities.

Halloween Decor

I have these shabby chic frames that I've been collecting to decorate my Crafting Room.
So I finally got organized and whipped up a few quick 3D collages.
And when I say quick, I really mean it.
Like 15 minutes...
This image was made from a piece of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye
And that banner is a 3D sticker from K&Co. 

This frame has two banner stickers from K&Co on some DSP from K&Co. 
Here's a frame with a banner from the same K&Co kit and the
Halloween die cut from My Mind's Eye

The Moxie Fab Stickers and Tape Challenge

This card was made with this fantastic paper from Crate Paper.
I used the stickers to add detail and I mounted them and popped them up on dimensionals.
Then I added glitter for more detail.
I'm entering this in the Stickers and Tape challenge over at Moxie Fab.

The Moxie Fab Colour Media Challenge

 I love this paper.  It's from Crate Paper, and this pack includes some die cuts and stickers.  I used the most vibrant page from the pack and then added some glitter glue to match.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! and I stamped it in Basic Black ink and carefully cut it out to make the banner.  The flower and the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun stickers were placed on black paper and then cut out by hand and mounted up on pop dots.

The Ready Made Embellishment challenge from Moxie Fab

I used some preprinted cards and the matching paperstack to create this card.  It's all from American Craft.  The flowers are stickers and die cuts that I made into a bouquet.  I cut the jar our of the paper and popped it up on pop dots.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up! and I carefully cut it out so that it fit on the jar like a label.

Colour Q Challenge #209

This week at the colour Q we have a bright summery combo for you.
I decided to go back to my summer photos and scrap some of my cuties on the beach.  Here we are at the local beach and the kids were playing on the lifeguard chair.  I used to play on this same chair when I was a little girl.
Below are some of the kits from Pixels and Co that I used. 
I also used a few digital stamps from Stampin' Up
