Good morning and welcome to our Halloween blog hop!  We have several talented ladies who will be sharing fun Halloween projects with you today, to hopefully inspire you to create some Halloween crafts of your own!  If you just happened upon my blog, please go to Kimberli's blog at to start from the beginning, so you don't miss anything!  There will be some fun giveaways along the way, so be sure to hop by each of the blogs so you don't miss any!

Today I am sharing some really cool tile coasters!  I have been experimenting with vinyl lately and I just love how easy it is to use.  (and cheap too... I only paid 11 cents for each tile at Lowe's!)  I designed these using my Gypsy, but most of it could be done just using your Cricut machine on it's own. ("Beware" was welded with my Gypsy) The images are from Happy Hauntings, October 31st. and Pumpkin Carvings. 

What would a hop be without some fun blog candy!  I will be giving away some twine in holiday colors. Orange, black, green and red!!

Just become a follower of my blog, leave a comment and a way to contact you if you are the winner! :)

I will be entering this into the Cricut Circle Month Challenge: Halloween Home Decor , the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog: Spooky Time, create a project with a ghost on it and More Than Favors: anything goes.

Thanks so much for stopping... I hope you enjoyed my project!

Cricut Circle Blogaversary Challenges!!

Hello, Happy Friday!  Today I wanted to share a couple of cards I made for the Blogaversary Challenges on the Cricut Circle Blog.  There are a total of 6 challenges, but so far I was only able to get two of them done.  I just started last night, so that's actually not too bad for me! LOL!

The first challenge I did was: Use your Imagine Machine to print a background (it can be a solid color or a patterned paper from your Imagine cartridge) and use it on your project as well as cutting an image of your choice in layers- that’s right, choose the layers option on your image and print out one or all of the layers offered, piece them together on your project!

And the second challenge I did was:   Create a project of your choice using your Cuttlebug machine as the main focus. Your project must include atleast 2 different Cricut Image Cuts

I am pretty happy with how they turned out, especially since I made them in such a short amount of time (for me!)  So wish me luck!!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a very CRAFTY weekend!!
