Decorate To Celebrate Challenge

        *I also made this for Laura Kelly's popcorn box challenge.

I had so much fun making this! I have never made something like this before. I really like how it turned out!

To make this I started out with a regular popcorn box. I traced and cut out the black paper to cover the box. I then stamped a spider web all over the black paper and then glued it to the box. Next I stamped the mummy bear and scary tree, colored them, cut them out and attached them to the box. Then I added the rhinestone ribbon around the bottom of the box. I then made a bow out of ribbon with spiders all over it and I put a big spider on it! I also added a little bat to the tree. I put some black netting in the box and added the black roses, twigs and two fun black and white straws.
 Here is all the prizes Laura is giving away!

Fun Fall Card

Hello, I want to share a card I made for a fall card swap.
To make this card I started with a 4' 1/4" x 11' for the base and scored it at 5'1/2". I cut a piece of white at 4' x 5'1/4" and stamped fall leaves all over the piece of paper and attached it to the base. I then stamped the turkey, colored it and cut it out. I attached it to the card with an action wobble. Then to finish the card I stamped Gobble 'Til Ya Wobble on a banner and attached it to the card with pop dots. You can touch the turkey and make him wobble!

You should have arrived here from Robin's Blog. Today October 15th, is National Miscarriage and Infant loss Awareness Day. This hop was created for those that suffered a devastating loss with the loss of their own child or someone in their life that has an angel baby or lost a child.

75% of all conceptions end in miscarriage 30% of pregnancies end in miscarriage (1 in 3) 15-20% of confirmed pregnancies end in miscarriage The majority of miscarriages happen in the first trimester Chromosomal Abnormalities are the most common reason for miscarriages and still births 90,000 children die annually before their first birthday Nearly 2,500 babies are lost a year in the US due to SIDS Nearly 30,000 babies are year are born stillborn. This number jumps to 4.5 million worldwide Stillbirth occurs 10 times more frequently than SIDS More babies die as a result of stillbirth than all other causes of infant death a year
The above reference statistics can be found on both of the following websites if you would like to find out more information:

Too many people in this world grieve in silence over the loss of their children. This hop is ment to CELEBRATE them! You will see many different stories from the wonderful ladies in this hop. Some have themselves loss their beautiful babies, some had family members go through a loss, and some are here to show their support for the women who have gone through it.

How can YOU show your support today? Here are a few examples:

The theme for this hop is any project centered around Angels, babies, pink and blue ribbons, condolence cards, tributes, and layouts!

Here is the card I made, I joined this hop because I have a family member who lost a baby to toxemia around the 5th month of her pregnancy , my nephew.
I made the card with both pink and blue, I used a pair of cute baby shoes for the image and added a pink and blue ribbon. ( sorry the picture is a little blurry ) 
On the inside of the card I stamped,  May God's love heal your sorrow, and may His peace replace your heartache with warm and loving memories.

I am the end of this wonderful hop, but before you go, Would you please join me and say a little prayer for all the families that have suffered a loss of a child?

Here is the lineup should you get lost:

Pinwheel Card

Hello everyone,  I am so sorry for not posting for awhile. I had a sinus and ear infection and my son had a double ear infection.  We're all better now.
I want to share this pinwheel card I made for a swap. I love how it turned out! I embossed the base for some texture. Then I added the dsp with strips and added a border to divide the two. I added the pinwheel and placed a button in the center. I thought it needed a little something more so I added a little white ribbon.
Have a wonderful day!
