a giveaway-CLOSED

just because i feel like being nice - and i have WAY too much stuff! I have been going through things trying to get ready for my scrap weekend away next weekend - and i have SO MUCH STUFF. Lots of duplicates too. Another thing i don't ever think about when i buy buy buy - is that i have 3 design teams that i have to do assignments for - so most of my time - is using these manufaturers product. But i still have a problem buying............its time to let go of some if it and make room for all of things that don't fit in my drawers and cupboards. I will fill a flat rate box FULL of goodies (lots of newer stuff too) if you'll just leave me a comment and tell me what your going to be for Halloween!! I'm not being to creative this year - a 'tavern lady' - bought the costume at Target! I'm kinda going more of a gypsey/pirate route with the dress. Real creative right! So what are you dressing up as?? Leave me a comment and let me know - i will do a drawing on October 30th - the day before Halloween!
We had a family Halloween party at my parents last night and one tonight with Dean's family - lots of dressing up for us the week - we have school parties and trunk or treats - so thier costumes will definatley get good use!
Here are a few layouts i did for Fancy Pants this month. The first one is with the Christmas Magic line which I LOVE! The ornament thing at the top is a glitter cut - i cut the top of this one off and adhered it to the bottom of the layout. The circle in the background is one of the circle 8x8 mixed media albums. Rubons, chipboard, stickers and buttons are all Fancy Pants too.
This one was fun - my boys racing eachother. I used the Rough and Tough line - the circles are made by using paint and a toilet paper roll. I cut the arrows from the 12 x 12 sticker sheet. The title is handcut from one of the patterned papers!!

Hope everyone has a great week filled with lots of fun Halloween parties! I will be back once more this week before i do the drawing! Thanks for stopping by - and don't forget to post for the giveaway!
xoxo

Melissa said...

I'm going as a frazzled mom of three young kids. I'll be wearing a bright green t-shirt that says BOO and glows in the dark and will be wrangling my Woody from Toy Story, Princess and Bumblebee. :)

Amber said...

I don't celebrate halloween, but I am partaking in an annual fall tradition...our sort-of local festival...so I'll be eating lots of yummy corndogs, dippin' dots and funnel cake...yumm!!

Kristi B. said...

I love your layouts!
Hubby & I are not dressing up this year. I am preggo, so we decided that attending our friends annual party with all the germs going around wouldn't be smart. My son is going to be a fireman for the 4th year in a row! No matter how hard we try, he refuses to be anything else....lol.

Holly said...

I will be going to get my mamogram Halloween morning. Gotta keep the girls in good working order. Hope they don't find anything scary " ) I'm not one to celebrate Halloween but I love the fall season. It's one of my favorites.

Jodi said...

Sad face for me :( My kids are too old to trick or treat and no adult parties to go to. Just handing out treats to the kiddoes that come to the house. I could sure use a box of fun to cheer me up! :)

before weight watchers I would always say I am going to be "overweight" for halloween. After a year on WW, I can finally say that this year I am going to be "within my weight range" for Halloween!

I'm going to be a black cat - meow!! My girls (6 yr. old twins and 17mo. old) wanted Mommy to dress up, so I went the easy route and found a really cute headband/nose/tail set at my local fabric & craft shop. All I need to do is wear black, so it's figure friendly, too! ;) Happy Halloween!!

laura vegas said...

Karie Coats said...

I am going as a vampire!! I took my son 2 weeks ago to a halloween party and dressed up as a vampire then. Both my kids got a big kick out of it, so i'll be doing it again this weekend!

Thanks for the great giveaway!!

Jamie Harder said...

I will be a Mad Scientist this year. I do a Halloween party for my kids this year and one of the games is "monster parts" where the kids try to figure out how to put the monster back together. I guess I am the crazy scientist who took the monster apart...lol! Love your blog btw! Just found it:-)

Lindsay said...

Shirley said...

I'm from Singapore and we dont traditionally celebrate Halloween. But it's getting quite popular here and on Halloween weekend and the one before, there'll be lots of really innovative costumes going around! And if I were to choose, I'd probably be an Asian ghost! Hee hee!

Laura T. said...

This year I'm just wearing a Halloween themed shirt ... can't find a costume for a pregnant gal like me. I am helping out with my son's Halloween party at school tomorrow, so I'll be surrounded by Kindergarteners all dressed up.

The Hosleys said...

I too am going as a frazzled mom of three. My 12 year old daughter is being a Rock Star, my 8 year old boy a evil capped guy, and my 4 month old is going to be the cutest monster out that night:)

Wendy said...

My son wanted to be chocolate milk his year, so I am going to be a cow. Not creative at all, but fits the theme. Have fun at your parties.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays but now my kids are too old and we don't get very many trick or treators at my house. This year I was so excited because both my 25 and 22 year old daughters were home and CARVED PUMPKINS. I got some great pics!!!
The giveaway is so generous!!!
