Debi's blog you're in the right place. For a complete list of all the hoppers this month go to Joyce's blog.
is my favorite month because my son's birthday is this month and my
favorite holiday- Halloween. BOO!! Outside the leaves are falling, the
temperature is cool and I'm nice and cozy inside scrapping some pages
with the new Swan Lake collection from Close To My Heart. Although
this paper packet is fall themed with acorns and golden colors, I felt like it matched perfectly not only with Thanksgiving but a fancy Great Gatsby themed party. I just loved the swans and the gold foil accents that really bring this packet to life. That's the beauty of our papers. They have so many possibilities! Don't think of them as tied to a particular event or theme. Think out of the box and shake things up! You never know what you'll come up with :) Here's my take on the Workshop Your Way layouts and cards...
This month I've also created some spooky single
page kits they're all precut and just need a little assembling and some
on over to Betty's blog and continue on the hop I'm sure you'll enjoy
all of the fabulous new ideas we have to show you this month!
Happy Crafting! :)

So now that I have caught you up on all my recent endeavors, I must apologize to Joyce and the Hoppers for the lateness of this post. Sorry guys! But as the saying goes "better late than never'
If you arrived here from Helen Gullett's beautiful clean cards you are on the right track. I have been working on getting those Halloween photos scrapbooked. I have a lot of years to catch up on and I am using the fabulous Workshops from CTMH to get me started. Our new Halloween themed pack is called Jeepers Creepers. It has the traditional colors of orange, purple, black and green with the cutest monsters, spooky silly eyeballs and lightening bolts which were perfect for my son's Harry Potter costume. Here is my take on the Jeepers Creepers Workshop Your Way and an additional layout. I am using this paper collection to scrapbook some of our older Halloween photos since I think it works great with those less-scary costumes. The caption for each photo tells you how I changed the WYW to better fit my style and photos.
|I added a mat on the left page since my photo wasn't as large as the pattern called for.|
|I changed the journaling block to better fit my page.|
|I stamped and cut the yellow ghost on the left page from the Monstrous Halloween Thin Cuts Bundle and added more monster footprints and puffy eyeballs.|
|I added a flip flap to the page and here it is with the flip flap open|
|this page was based on the Quartet pattern from Reflections|
I have more to show you but I have not yet added the photos so I will save them for next month. Hop on over to Joyce's Blog next but before you do, please leave me a comment below. Thanks and happy crafting!
