Boo! ~7 Gypsies Halloween Printers Tray~

Hello scrapping ghouls!

Halloween is my fav time of year. The Fall season has to be the most inspiring for me to be creative. (well Christmas too!) But I've been seeing all these fabulous printers trays around and it really got me in the mood to make one..well several actually..but this one I made for just for Halloween. I found the tray at my favorite LSS, Scrap Trap-you can find them here on Facebook. I used Basic Grey's Eerie collection for it.

The fab Dead Head flower was made by my scrapping buddy, Lynne, at her mymadcow blog. She has them in her Etsy shop along with other Halloween goodies!

I love these trays. I just got a 7 Gypsies Receipt Holder to do next. It's awesome because you can change out your pics/cards to go with any season, holiday etc. Check it out:
Can't wait to get started on it while I wait for my new Swirlydoos kit!!
Till next time...Happy Scrappin!!

Happy "Halloween in Wonderland"~ Graphic 45 Mini Album

Hey Scrappers!

I love Halloween! It's my favorite holiday after Christmas. When Graphic 45 came out with this line, I about died!! I had to have it as I'm sure most of you did as well.

I really love to do mini albums and I do one every year for some of our Halloween pics. So this is what I just finished for this years Halloween:
The great thing about mini's and great paper is that you can add SO many small details that help make your project have some dimension and character. I won't go into alot of details here because there are so many pics to share!! Page one:

Well that's about it! Hope you get inspired to be creative today!  Till next time, Happy Scrappin!!

"Junie" ***Swirlydoos October Kit ~Lavender Escape~

Hi scrapping friends!

I really am loving Swirlydoos new October kit.."Lavender Escape". It  has so much to work with..very versatile with all the new Websters, and matching goodies.

My daughter found this photo of me and my Uncle Junie when I was little, and I knew I  had to scrap it! He was the world to me. He was truly a great person. Never a bad word, always caring. He was born with Downs Syndrome and my Grandmother was told by her Dr.s back then, to put him in a hospital..well she told them all to go to hell. She raised him and took care of him until the day he passed away. I remember alot of those days. He loved his TV Guide collection, Country music, and typing. This is the lo I'd like to share:
The lighting of the photo isn't that great, so I apologize. The beautiful Websters pp, large Prima flower and purple ribbon around the frame are all included in the kit. You can get the butterflies from HERE courtesy of the most talented Lisa Gregory.

I rolled up a corner of the paper and tied it with twine..adding a embellie from Tim Holtz. I also had to journal. Sometimes I'll journal and sometimes I won't..but with this lo, I wanted it speak for me.
The journaling reads:

If ever there were a time
that I miss the most,
It is the time I spent
with you.
You were always so full of love,
so full of life..always kind and caring.
People saw you as different.
People were cruel back then.
I wish you were here today,
To see how much people have changed.
I wish you were here.
collecting your TV Guides,
Playing on your typewriter.
I wish you were here, but you're not.
It makes me sad, but I understand.
It was time for you to spread your wings..
And Fly.

Well thank you for letting me share this with you!! Take care and till next time..Happy Scrappin!
