Halloween Blog Hop


HAPPY HALLOWEEN !!!





You are at stop 7 on this 20 spot blog hop!  You should have flown over from Gina's blog.  Welcome and I hope you are enjoying yourself so far!  I love Halloween and can hardly wait for it to get here (really the only reason for SUMMER to end for me).  I love seeing all the neighborhood kids dressed up and running up and down the street.  I play scary music and decorate the yard. (That's a big deal for me as I only decorate outside twice, for Halloween and Christmas.  It's cold  here in Illinois LOL)

 For my contribution to Ashley's Halloween Hop I have made a cute photo frame.




  I picked up this frame, and two others, at Michael's, for $3.  Yep, 2 for 3! First I painted the frame white.  They come natural wood and although I like the color of wood I was afraid the paper wouldn't adhere to it.  I then covered it in paper from K & company Specialty Paper pack.  I've had this paper for quite awhile so I don't even know if it's still available.  Using the same paper I cut the scarecrow out and blinged him up a bit with stickles and raffia and pop dotted him and the little crow to the outside of the frame.   I can't want for my grandkids to dress up this halloween so I can put their photo in there!  




For my second project I made a Halloween card. But to be honest I am in an Action Wobbles blog hop tomorrow so I made this card for that hop and then remembered there were color limitations, so I figured I would post it here because it fits the theme!! And maybe that will peak your interest and you will stop tomorrow to see both of those projects made with action wobbles!!!


All images cut from the Happy Hauntings cart and they all wobble like they are dancing.  The inside of the card reads
"Party like you're Monster Mashed!"  Isn't that cute??!!


Don't forget Ashley is giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky winner who comments and follows each blog in this hop!!!

OMG, I love frazzled mom image and all of the icons, type etc. all over your blog. SOOOO cute. Did you have your blog do-over done for you, or did you do it yourself in your own frazled time?? SUPER super cute!!!!!! I must say, I adore your projects -- the Monster Mashing wobbling creatures, as well as that frame. Just wonderful. I hope you enjoy the season of fun and spooks!

Oh Liz, every time I open your page, I get a chuckle from your "picture". Love that frame - I always see these frames at Michaels and never buy them. Next time I am stocking up - I have seen so many cute ideas with them! Love that card too with the wobbles - will try to stop back tomorrow. Love your sentiment on the inside - that is adorable! Did you make it up?

Both of your projects are really cute. Just thought I would tell you that paper will definitely stick to those wood frames from M's. I have covered several of them with different scrapbook papers and it worked great. I only paint the surfaces that won't be covered with paper and I use Aleene's Tacky Fast Grab Tacky Glue.
