Happy Halloween with Family and Friends

Hope everyone's Halloween was awesome. We enjoyed sharing time with Grandson Trevor, Terry, Nicole, Victoria, & Jonathan, and others as we went trick or treating through our neighborhood. It was fun watching Trevor discover the joy of saying Trick or Treat and seeing him in his costume. He did not want anything to do with his costume at first....Thought we would never get him in it.... but, once outside and seeing all the pumpkins and scarecrows he calmed down. Have a safe evening and hope you all had a fun evening.
 Our Grandson Trevor as Cookie Monster...He even had a 
Chocolate Chip cookie..
It is half eaten and at the bottom of his bucket.
What a cutie...I know I am bias, but he is a cutie with 
that sweet smile!

In the mean time enjoy browsing around my blog for crafts and other information.

Click here---> for my October Workshops
Checkout the PJ Crafting TAB Above
Go by and check out all the awesome talent at Cardz TV. THe DT's have some really cute and inspirational projects.
Just click this link.


I am giggly excited because my New CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge is chalk full of 3-D projects for me to create. I have only played 
around with a few samples 
(wanting to make sure I could help my 
friend with her cute project). 
After making the first one, I couldn't stop with these cute little coffins.  My first two are going to some Special little peeps, so I put a little extra time into the finished look of these. Hope you like. My fun friend is now making 24 for her booing & office project and then our other friend wants 50 of these creations. Looks like we will be busy Coffin Makin'. 

 I am so glad my friend signed up for the GIRLS DAY OUT~12 HOUR CROP. We will have plenty of time to be "cricut cuttin' loons" that day.  For more information on future GIRLS DAY OUT CROPS go to:

Here are the Coffins. 
They actually did not take that long to do...I just had to make up my silly mind on what I wanted to stamp & bling them with. Also, I had to choose what I wanted to cover the inside with, solid or B&T papers (background & texture). Once I got going, boom, they were done.
I have decided to share this with the H2H Challenges and a few others. Tools & Supplies used will be in the 3-D Arts TAB above .

The last one is the smaller of the three. This one I will be Booing my neighbors with some added little goodies inside. (Thank goodness my neighbors don't visit my blog a lot....HE HE HA!).  
Thanks for stopping by, would love to get your crafty comments on these. Have a Cooky & Spooky October.
Here are some more great coffins by friends of my Crop Club...They were very busy as well. As soon as I finish my last group of coffins, I will share them here as well.
These are some of the ladies at our Huge Team Crop we had.
What fun and they were busy all day long.

I hope to get more pics of here fantastic Coffins before she gives them all out.
Wish answered...I love how she made everyone of her Coffins different. 
Here, Our dear friend Kerry in Atlanta made some awesome invites to a party with her Coffin's. 
Can you say Creepy!!!!
Here is here invite she made to go inside the coffins!!
I am so glad I will not be opening one.. EEK!!!
This is how each invited person receives there coffin.
She made 50 of these!! Great work ladies.
Thanks for taking time to look at these.

Clearly the Best

Check out the November Blog Drawing By Clicking Here

Before I was down and out with a major illness a few weeks back I had begun a few posts to be scheduled for posting on different days. Need less to say, I am so far behind the eight ball this month, I have decided to share all three of these wonderful videos from Close To My Heart. You will learn a lot of new techniques and get plenty of fresh ideas for your decorating, card making and scrapbooking. I am totally trying one of the techniques later this week. Bet you can't guess which one...LOL! 
Grab you a cup of coffee or take your snack break and sit back to enjoy these 
quick videos that Close To My Heart has put together for you.

First, Lets see the new Color Pallets along with new 
pigment inks and marker pairs.You will love all the coordination of color. 
You don't have to search the world over to match up papers 
with inks and so on. Because Close to My Heart has 
already done the work for you.

Be Spell Bound with your Party plans and the Cricut Artiste Cartridge.

Here's more Party Ideas for those cute Birthdays and other occasions.
Be ready to Daub your Creativity in a new technique to use on 
your clear stamp sets. 

Coordinate your Close To My Heart Chip Board with the 
CTMH Cricut Cartridge and the Clear Stamp sets. 
So many things you can do to make your projects stand out.

Here you can learn how to stamp on many different surfaces with 
Close To My Heart.

Here is one of my favorites stamping techniques and here 
you will see that the Close To My Heart Stamp sets are 
wonderful for lining up because they are very clear.
I have lots of fun with this versatile technique.

Thank you for stopping by. Once I am completely well and hopefully 
caught up, I will have my art work to post for you. So many things 
to finish but first, I need to get completely well.  I did get some of
 my Coffin's done before I went down that dark hole..LOL! 
Now I just need to get all the other Kooky & Spooky Halloween Deco done. 

PS. If you have not gotten the Flu shot, Please DO along with the pneumonia shot this year.  The different strains of flu can hit you at the same time and play real havoc on your immune system.  Wash hands frequently, and just be careful out there.

Hope you all have a healthy and wonderful October.
