Happy Halloween!!

Is everyone all set for the trick-or-treaters? We are taking both kids out trick-or-treating this year since Dalton is a little older now. Should be fun – I just hope its not TOO cold… lol

So… onto my project for today. My daughter Ali who is 5 loves to read … or should I say loves for me to read her books. She is going to be a total bookworm like her mom, I just know it. So with her love for books…I created a bookmark for her.

You can find the owl and book pattern HERE at Scraptastical Kreations. 
Once I had the bookmark put together and hole punched, I laminated it and added ribbon. It’s not a normal bookmark size but that’s ok 🙂

Hope you like the project and check back again soon!

Would love to hear your feedback on what you thought of my bookmark!

If you are a stamper – be sure to check out my Stamps page – I have tons that I’m selling!

Monday with Mindy October 24

Happy Monday! So Saturday night I had a huge creative block. Thankfully Sunday I came back around just in time to pull this project together and I”m pretty excited about it. 

Introducing…… Baked With Love

To create this I used the cookie jar file, one of the bears from Awww-tumn Bears, and the bowl and title from Baked With Love. All of these files can be found over at Scraptastical Kreations.

Hope you enjoyed the layout – would love to hear your comments!

Thank You!

Make sure to check back often if you haven’t become a follower – I’m going to be adding a page for some items I’m cleaning out of my scrapbook room (LOTS) and maybe I’ll even do some giveaways!

For my Halloween project I made a little photo stand. I found the pattern from Split Coast Stampers. They have some fabulous ideas out there to fit anyone’s needs – too many to choose from actually!

Front view of the photo stand. It consists of two coasters decorated with pattern paper. One side has the witch that I created from Scraptastical Kreations. The other side is a spot to put a picture. I plan on putting my daughter’s picture on here of her in her Halloween costume… I just have to print it. lol.

Back of the photo stand to see the nifty paper design….

And… the close-up of my bear .
