Creepy Cricut Creations Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Creepy Cricut Creations Blog Hop!
Howling cats, and a big black spider,
Flying bats, some doughnuts and cider,
Smiling pumpkins can be seen;
The time is here for Halloween!

Now, prepare to be spooked!

My son is 24 now and it's been a looong time since we went trick or treating. (sniff) I have heard so much about Project Life I thought I would give it a try and hopefully catch up on my scrapbooking! Here is my attempt......All I have left to do now is the journaling.
Is this not the most intimidating pirate you ever saw.....in diapers?? The bare spots are for my journaling. I am going to write directly on the base instead of adding a mat.
Should have made the cat's eyes green.....duhhh. Oh well, I will remember that next time! The moon is acutally a mini book cover in the Artbooking cartridge. I flipped the image and tucked the binding part behind the photo.

Although it was very fun to do, I wouldn't say it was any quicker than the old fashioned way of scrapbooking. Maybe I need to quit reminiscing and get busy scrapping! lol

Thanks for stopping by and hopping with us ~ Here's a little "treat" for ya. (and no I will not smell your feet) Leave a comment and I will announce the winner on Wednesday! Good luck :-)
