Tuesday Costumes

Happy Tuesday

Did you all have a wonderful long weekend?  Oh wow I sure did!  Friday was my birthday and we had so much fun bowling Friday night.  Then we came home and my mom baked me my favorite cake- dark chocolate cake and homemade carmel icing.  This has been my favorite cake since I was a little girl!  Then present time.  I was so excited because my mom got me some fun scrappin' supplies.  I got some more of the boys only collection and some october afternoon cakewalk!.  Then hubby and the boys bought me a fuji instax mini camera.  I was soo excited!!! I can't wait to give it a try!  Then on Saturday through Monday we just hung out with family.  Loved every minute.

We are on are birthday week.  Last Friday was my birthday, today is hubby's birthday and then Friday is Jack's birthday.  Lots and lots of excitement going on in our house this week!  So busy and crazy.  I hope that I can squeak in a couple of minutes to scrap.

Back in July, Cord Scrapbook Studio gave me the Monster Mash by Imaginisce  collection to work with.  I was pretty luck because I had yet to scrap last years photos.  Jack dressed up as a Ninja.  He really LOVED this costume.  He was going around with all these Ninja karate moves.  This is him giving a karate move in front of our house.

For this layout I used kraft cardstock and made a border using my sewing machine.  I then made some bats using my Silhouette.  I then just layered my pattern paper and embellished using their chipboard and die cuts.  There is a glare on the chipboard and it reads- Trick or Treat.

I was so excited that Cord picked this layout to feature in their monthly newsletter!  I will have a couple more projects using this collection once they appear first at Cord.  I have a card and a home decor piece!

supplies
cardstock- bazzill
paper, stickers, chipboard- imaginisce
buttons- paper trey ink
Tools- silhouette, sewing machine

Thanks for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a fun card.  See you then,  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
