Paper Playtime challenge BOO-ville

Hi everyone

I just love halloween!!! With 4 kids i just love see them all dressed up in. So i have made up a card for the Paper Playtime Challenge this monday.

For this card its a black A2 size! I used three mats for my card orange, black and a halloween saying paper. i cut the ghost out of the simply charmed cartridge on page 58 3 inch.  I used the peachy keen stamps PK-691Making a Monster Face. I always outline my stamped faces with glossy accents just to give them that little POP! "Boo to you" stamp is from My Pink Stamper "spook-alicious". I added 2 black buttons and put 2 little white button to the top of them.
The inside of my card i used my cuttlebug and the Darice spider web folder to emboss the paper and then finished it off with the clear embossing powder by Ranger.

I hope you like my card and please come join us for this challenge at

scrapbooking layer for teeth

Hi everyone i hope your having a great week. I started scrapbooking again, its been years since i have done this. My oldest son Cohen just started grade one and over the past 4 years with him in sports and full time school i have so much school thing i had no idea what to do with. So i started him up with his own scrapbook.

Cohen lost his first tooth this summer and i had NO idea what to do with his tooth. I couldn't just throw it out and i don't want to have bags of teeth in my house down the road. So i made a scrapbook page for when he loses his teeth.

Tell me what you think? I cut out 2 teeth from the child years cartridge and cut a window in the top tooth and back it with acetate. Then popped it up with 3d dots and glued his tooth down with a glue dot. I just love this idea and i finished it off with a flag with the date that tooth broke threw and they day is fell out.

This weekend I took the kids to Walmart. I always go to the craft area to see if there are any good deals. They had some cricut cartridges on sale!! I pick up 2 one for me and one for a give way on the blog. Picked up some craft stuff for the kids too. I got home took all the craft stuff downstairs put it on my craft desk. Then went upstairs to put the rest of the stuff away. You know that moment when your so busy and you realize that the kids are being to good and there hasnt been any fighting or crying :s so I start calling for them and find out they are downstairs. I go to make sure they are all Okay and find them in the Walmart craft bag :s with everything opened!!! My 6 year old had scissors out and had opened EVERYTHING!!!! Both cricut boxes, there was glitter all over the floor and paint all over my 2 year old daughter. Then my 4 year old son says "mommy we just wanted to make you a card" how can I get mad at that. So just a heads up the cricut cartridge I will be giving away in the next few weeks will not be sealed or in the box bc they destroyed both boxes :( kids will be kids.
