This is a special THANK YOU to all my CANADIAN peeps for voting for me during the Sizzix Who Are You Contest! I had so many supporters all around the world and I'm so grateful...which is why I had a giveaway last week too;)
TELL ALL YOUR CANADIAN FRIENDS, EH!
I'll get to those fun details at the end. But I have to show you a crafty project first! I teach part time at Scrapbooker's Paradise and I love it. They have asked me to help whip up some displays which has been a lot of fun! I bet you can guess what display this one is for! I was given some paper and this wooden cradle and told to make it BABY!
I glued the pink paper with modge podge. I made sure to distress and ink everything too! I love the wordplay "baby & me"! The crescent moon die looks amazing in picked raspberry distress glitter.
The Jumbo Tattered Floral is awesome for these larger projects.
A little chalking! Someone mentioned in a blog comment this would be a great sentiment for a new baby! So I went with it. See, I listen:)
I inked the flower with pumice stone, worn lipstick and picked raspberry.
I attached these mini florals all around and I stamped and inked some ribbon.
One of my favorite dies is the garden green die. I love adding these greens to my projects!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas? I have a few for you. These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks. BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows. These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat". Hangs over my spooky dining room. Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut. I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume. This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.
Happy Halloween! Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise! I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off. I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…
WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet. It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!! As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies. Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see. So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!! Arm twisted and mission accepted. I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey.
The set even comes with numbers;)
I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background. Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating. I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.
Be sure to dry fit before gluing! It took me 4 hours to die cut…
