Happy Halloween!

Here is a Halloween LO I have made today using the My Memories digital scrapbooking software! There is still time to enter win your very own copy of this software. Click HERE to enter!

For this LO, I used a free Halloween kit I found back in 2009. I have tons of kits on my external hard drive that I need to get using and My Memories is helping me do just that!

My pictures are of my nephew from Halloween 2007. Yep, I'm behind a bit!! I added some journaling (which is something I struggle with, never know what to say) and some word art!
And remember if you'd like to purchase a copy of My Memories Suite v2 to make your own projects, you can use my promo code that provides $10 off the software and $10 to use in My Memoires store. A $20 value!! Just use code STMMMS81381

Huntin 4Luv

I made these License plate embellishments for a swap I'm in over at onescrappinsista's blog. We were to make little license plates for use on projects. I used Paper Pups cartridge for my huntin dog, stamped Be Mine, cut the letters HNTN 4LUV out with my Cricut from black and dark green paper. Added  heart brads at the bottom and eyelets at the top. The background was embossed and then inked.

Winter Pin Cushion & stick pins

I made this pin cushion and the stick pins for a swap. My partner asked for a Winter theme in pastel colors. This was my first time making a pin cushion. 

I used some snow white, textured FolkArt paint by PLAID on the snowmen and around the bottom of the base to give a snowy affect. (Love this stuff!) The base of the pincushion was painted with PLAID FolkArts Extreme Glitter acrylic paint. (2790 Turquoise) It looks really glittery and pretty. The winter title with the snowmen were cut from my Cricut Expression as well as the snowflake. I added Martha Stewart glitter to the title and the snowflake to give a bit of shimmer.
