Haunted House

I created this after seeing Jennifer house at the crop on Saturday. I thought well I can do this too especially being Halloween is my favorite time. I bought the house at hobby lobby & the pumpkins were in the doll section,I painted the corners of the house with black paint that would show then I cut the paper to fit on the house & glued it down with modge podge matte once dry I decorated it. I put a electric candle inside for the flickering light without the burning of a real candle. It took me about 2 hrs being it was my first time trying this & all the cutting. I have a bigger one to do. I'm going to make a spooky village.

Pre-K layout

My son's pre-k class. Layout was created using School Zone Level 2 paper (retired), My acrylix Posterboard stamp set. The layout is from our Reflections layout book Bottom Border. We make it simple, faster & easier to scrapbook.

Birthday rolodex

I used a standard rolodex from the office store. All products are close to my heart. I used the Grace paper pack, coordinating ribbon, stamps, brads, flowers & embellishments. Each page has the month & each is different from the other.
