Halloween 1994 with The Kiddos

I was going through a box of old photos of the kids and came across this one from Halloween in 1994!  Jordan was 6, Sarah was 3 and Ryan was 20 months.  I really want to try and make a dent in the pictures of the kids and start getting them all scrapbooked.  Hard to believe that Jordan is now 26, Sarah is 23 and Ryan is 21. 

For this layout I used the paper from The Witches Brew stack from DCWV.  I used digis from Lia Stampz for the adorable little witches, pumpkin and cats.  The digis are on sale until October 26 for the amazing price of $2.40 for 9 digis.  If you're looking for additional inspiration check out   my Pinterest page, Lia's Facebook page or her Pinterest page

Challenge #75 at Lia Stampz themed "Spooky Cute"

Welcome to Challenge #75 at Lia Stampz!  The theme for this challenge is to make your project look Spooky Cute.  I decided to do double duty with this challenge.  Not only to follow the theme but I decided to turn a digi meant for Christmas into a Halloween themed image.  I used the one called "Christmas Mice" which can be found here. 

I used the Christmas ornament and drew in a face and made it into a Jack'oLantern.  I was hoping to prove that you don't always have to have the same tools that others are using for their projects.  Just use what you have and use your imagination to turn it into what you need. 

Here's my card.  I hope you like it.  It was actually a lot of fun to 'think outside the box.'

You can enter the challenge here.  Get quirky with it to impress our DT and you might end up on the spotlight!

You can read the detailed rules here
*You DON'T have to use a LiaStampz image (can be any stamp/digi stamp/ embellishment-not even an image).
*If you use a Lia Stampz image you can enter the Random draw 2 times!

*Please don't link more than ONE project unless you use a LiaStampz image.
*You can participate in an unlimited number of other challenges, we don't mind.

DCWV\s Stackaholic Challenge for September

WhooHoo!  I am so excited to tell you that one of my cards was chosen for the DCWV's September card challenge.  I used The Primrose stack to make this card.  This has got to be one of my all time favourite stacks from DCWV, although it is really difficult to choose because they have so many gorgeous papers.  However, this one seems to always produce cards for me that I am really, really happy with. 

As always, I welcome your comments, good or bad.  Thank you for taking the time to look at my post!

Challenge #74 themed Kraft and Distressed at Lia Stampz

Oh my goodness!  October 1st, can you believe it?  I know we are always saying about how time is flying but seriously we're into October?  The older I get, the quicker my life is flying by.  So we're on Challenge #74 at Lia Stampz and the theme this time around is Kraft and Distressed.  For my card I chose the image titled Grandma and you can find her here.   You can join us for this challenge at Lia Stampz and it goes until October 15th.  As always if you use a Lia Stampz image you can enter twice and if you choose to use a non Lia image, you can enter once only.  Hope to see your entry soon!
