Trick or Treat!

Believe it or not Halloween is just around the corner! Right now, I'm just wishing for some more fall like weather!  We're still hitting the 100* mark all this week!

I picked these adorable Puddle Jumpers from the By LORi Designs and made some fun fall & Halloween-y projects...

First up is this card I made with Wagon Tales Katie and made her into a little scarecrow! (well tried to anyway...)
Happy Pumpkin Day

The BLD team was challenged this week to create a Trick or Treat project- something other than a card... took me awhile to think of something before I found this tutorial to make this test-tube-treat holder

here's a side view...

Ferris Wheel Fun!

Time for another challenge at The Pink Elephant! This week's sponsor is The Craft's Meow and the theme is VINTAGE!

Now, vintage style isn't really my "thing".. but I did the best with this scrapbook page I created with some photos from my sister's summer trips and my nieces' favorite part of them...FERRIS WHEELS! I used this Life is a Carnival set, distressed some edges with vintage photo distress ink. Ferris Wheel Fun!
See all the details here to enter the challenge on The Pink Elephant blog!

Back 2 School!

The summer hsd definitely flown by... if only this Arizona heat would fly away- we've had at least 10 days of extreme heat warnings and temperatures 110*F and above!

Back to school season is already upon us and  By LORi Designs is have a Back 2 School Challenge! Check out all the details HERE!

I made this card for my nieces and nephew to wish them a happy school year, but I'm a little late since they already started school a few weeks ago! (Sis, act surprised when you see this k? :))

I had some fun in Photoshop and combined Lollipops School Girls Mina and Lacie with School Boy Ezra to create this image just for them... (you can find these images here)

 Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you play along in the challenge!

Cupcake Leslie

My 2nd post of the day!

Did you notice a new badge over on my sidebar?! The very sweet Berenice of Karber Digital Images asked me to be apart of their design team! How could I say no? I love playing with new digis and I definitely didn't get enough of these during my guest design spot with them earlier this summer.

My first card this month features this adorable Cupcake Leslie image: Cupcake Leslie Isn't she the cutest?
