Always a Monster!


Hey y'all! I'm back again as promised with a fun Halloween LO that I hope you love as much as I do! It uses some great products from some great companies...plus has a great pic of our kiddo (the bloody, crazy clown of course) from last year. I've been hearing quite a bit about Authentique paper lately so decided to try some out myself and boy howdy, it is fab stuff! I just loved the texture & thickness of it. And, the banner and strips behind the LO are both from the same sheet of double sided paper. When I seen those cute little variant triangles all over the page, I knew it would make the perfect banner and it did! The background paper is from AC's Mischievous line and I love it as well. When I trimmed off the bottom label of the paper, I actually made sure to keep the word "Mischievous" to use somewhere on my LO. I usually do that with most of my papers because there are always either cute patters you can use as borders, or cute words you can use on a LO or card. Just another good way to recycle/upcycle!


Supplies

Patterned Paper - Authentique, American Crafts

Now, for a few more days you can enter into the Paper Issues Halloween Link Party! It is super fun & I am so excited be part of such an amazingly talented Creative Team. Seriously, the inspiration offered on the site is phenomenal & I sometimes feel way inferior. So, check it out HERE & I hope I see ya playing along too! On another note, I am super excited to see what photos I get from this year's Halloween affair so I can start scrappin' them. Halloween is our favorite holiday & we love nothing more than eating, watching scary movies, and trick or treating of course! So, do you have any big Halloween plans or usual traditions? I'd love to hear about them! In the meantime, enjoy the holiday & check back in a few days for my weekly Your Memories Here post! Until then, Spooky Craftin'!

Crystal I love love love this! I thought I was the only one who saved the strips of paper from the bottom of my sheets! (I mean Cosmo Cricket practically begs you to with their patterns and cute sayings)

HUGS,
