Everyone who knows me, knows that purple is my favorite color. So much, that way back, when I bought my first vehicle, that my only two desires was that it was a truck and that it was purple. I ended up buying a purple, 1995 Ford Ranger, which I loved and drove for years (until I traded it in for a "grown up" SUV". Anyway, when I found out that the challenge this week was to create a project using black and purple as the main colors, I got really excited. Don't forget to head on over to Fantabulous Cricut to link up your project, and don't forget you must use at least one Cricut cut.
I had found this wonderful rhinestone "BOO!" sticker at Michaels and knew that I had to use it. I cut the spider and web using my Cricut and my Happy Hauntings cartridge, then just put everything together and dressed it up using some purple and clear rhinestone stickers, the Boo sticker, and a white gelly roll pen (I think the white dots on the spider make her look really scary). I love how this layout turned out, now if Halloween will just get here, I can add the pictures and put it in my 2013 scrapbook.
I am excited about Halloween this year, oh...what am I talking about, I love Halloween every year. Growing up, it was always a time that our whole family got together to play a little bit. We would always go over to my grandmother's house, because she lived in "the neighborhood", you know the one that everyone goes to trick or treat. I remember the 5 gallon bucket of candy that would be given out each year, and my grandfather taking pictuers of random kids, because their costumes were cute. I have stories, lots of them, and all of them special to me. Now that we are all older now, we don't get together as often, so the holidays, even Halloween, are that much more important.
This year, I am able to attend my cousin's Halloween party. For whatever reason, I have never been able to attend, so I'm excited to go. They always seem to have a great time. Everyone dresses up, including the grown-ups. I'm sure there will be some great photos to come of this gathering. Anyway, I wanted to give them something to say thank you for inviting me and my family and for providing a great way to spend some time together. So I made them a Happy Halloween card. It only took about 30 min to make and it was a lot of fun.
To make the card, I cut all the peices using my cricut and cut the base for the card. I wanted to make it look like the witch was flying through the night sky, so I used chalk to create the moon. It was actually a little funny, I was making it and couldn't get it quite right, when my husband came in the room and looked and just said you need to use orange. What? when did you become a crafter? He was right, I added the orange and it was perfect.

Dallas and I were invited to a Halloween party, and we wanted to take a little something to the party. We decided to make brownies. Using my Happy Hauntings cartridge, I cut out some ghosts, a 3-D tree, and some halloween phrases. I cut the tree out using thin chipboard and then used a black ink pad to add a bit of color. When the brownies were done, we aranged the tree in the middle with the brownies stacked all around it, almost like the tree was on the top of a hill, then put the ghosts and phrases all around it. I have to say, it turned out really cute. I only wish I had a picture of the completed project, because it was really cute!
