Paper Weaving Halloween Style!

Hello and Happy Sunday to you!

I see I've let September slip by....  Already the 21st, it's just going by WAY too fast!   I am participating in the Make it Monday #180 - Paper Weaving!  I remember doing this in elementary school, making paper baskets!  It does make a pretty sweet background!

You can watch the video here!  And once again, this is from one of my favorite blogs - Capture the Moment.  Here is my card:

Well I did my paper weaving with Stampin' Ups! Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper.
I used a Basic Black base, and the colors are Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White.

Aren't those faces adorable, the ghosts are from the Happy Haunting Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink.

In this stamp set, you get the ghost outline, or you can stamp a solid colored ghost, and you get a great variety of eyes and mouths to create these really cute expressions!!  I embellished with an orange polka dot bow and some black sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!

This paper weaving turned out really bright and bold, the perfect background for these 
NOT scary but full of personality ghosts!!

Here is the inside of the card, Happy Halloweeny!!!  (oops, it's still September!!)

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, and have a fabulous "rest of the day"!!

Back to School!

Hi and Happy Tuesday to you!

Today is back to school for my Grandson, Ryan!  He is starting 1st grade today, and has said that he wants to be a Navy Seal when he grows up!  Ummmmmm, if he is a Navy Seal Gramma will be right there to wrap him in bubble wrap before he goes off for duty!!  Here's my little sweetheart, his mommy did the little chalk board (how cute is that?!?!).

I'm participating in the Make it Monday #178, Back to School Easel Card!   Yep, it matches the picture of my sweet Grandson, with his chalk board easel!!  Check out the video for the Chalk Board Easel Card!  Then go check out all the cards on the Capture the Moment Blog.

Here's my card: 

I love the chalk board look!   The stamp set is from Papertrey Ink, it is appropriately called Back to School.

The chalk board look is so cool because it really looks like a chalked up board!  Kinda reminds me of school many, many, many years ago!!

I used white embossing powder, and pool party embossing powder, l o v i n g the pool party powder!!

The colors used are Chalkboard, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade and Crisp Cantaloupe..  I think they look fresh together for this pastel card!!

Oh!  And I had to add a few sequins for embellishment!  Love those sequins!  

And a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my lovely DIL, Bethany!!  I LOVE YOU!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope this Easel Card got you in the back to school mood!!  
AND it's also September 2 (can't believe it's September!) - I just feel so cozy, the beginning of fall, even tho it will be back up in the mid-90s by the end of the week!!

Have a fabulous day!
