DAY 1 of the 13 Days of Halloween

Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  This hop is scheduled from Oct. 19 at 8:00 am through Oct.31 at 11:00 pm (central time).  It's that time of year when the nights are all spooky and creatures are known to wander the forests.  So sit for a spell with a nice cup of hot apple cider and check out all the great projects.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning with Lisa Peters-  You should have came from janet
Isn't she creative!!

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.

The hop is a 13 day hop with only 13 blogs to visit so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup 13 times.  Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops.  Please come back all 13 days to see great projects.

ONTO my project now...
 So here we are on day 1 -  I hope you enjoy...   MINI MONSTER cricut cartridge and # 48 on the overlay. Cut at 6in.  Created on my Gypsy and cut using my expression.  he will eventually go to school at the FALL party for my 1st grader.  I love his eyes as you scroll down and see that I used a dopper thingy and inked with the Spectrum Pad Pumpkin Patch from Stampin Up. then the Googly eyes sit on them... The inking around the edging is from the same ink pad.  All papers used are from Close to my Heart. I will eventually put each child's name on his tummy.    The twine is from Wal-Mart and is used for the handle which is held by the buttons for his ears.  I marked with black marker around his tummy

Holds LOTS of lil candy and even a bag of lil pretzels.

buttons for his ears which holds the twine to hold up the bag.

2nd project which was seen on another blog at Love to Crop when I was a guest designer.  It was supposed to be on here but I joined last minute and used it.  I will show it here, just in case you missed it on the 14 days challenge of FALL COLORS.
MANY cricut cartridges were used.  If you'd like to see them - look on my side bar for the Love to Crop guest designer and see all the details.  I used Vinyl for all the words, an apple and some leaves.  for the other icons - I used Epoxy stickers and a few stickers.  it really gave it a POP!  I bought this aluminum sign at Hobby Lobby in the Fall section.  They had various colors..  so many options!!

Your next stop is ... Kristen at  Have a great day and please stop back tomorrow for another great project.

  5. Cute Treat Bag! Looks like I need to buy this cart! LOL! TFS & I am now a follower & subscriber. Please hop on over to my blog as I will be in a Halloween Blog Hop this Friday! Thanks

  6. Doris, I love your projects. The treat bag is really cute. Imade monster treatbags for my daughter once for her class too, but with no names. That's a cute idea. Plus I put a pencil in each bag. My daughter is a teacher and always complains about how many kids never come to school with a pencil. I usually give her the extras from the packs so she has them on those days. tfs Tami
