Raven's Birthday Halloween Hop - October 28th - 31st

Hi, all and Happy Birthday Raven!  What a fun time of year to have a birthday!  I'm so excited Raven invited me to participate in this hop.

If you are joining me from Theresa's http://www.thescrapbookingqueen.com/
 blog you are in the right place!  If you would like to start from the beginning (and you really should)....go to Raven's www.love4stamps.blogspot.com   blog by pressing her name.
I recently got to enjoy an evening of cropping with some of the other ladies on this hop 1800 miles from home.  I worked on my project while I was with them.  I hope you enjoy it!

In my neck of the woods kids go to their friends houses and "Boo" them by ringing the door bell and running after leaving a bag of candy.  I thought I would dress that idea up a bit. I used the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cart to make the door hanger and the little note envelope.  I used a few cirle punches to make the hole for the hanger a little larger and inside the envelope. I used My Minds Eye paper reinforced by another sheet of cardstock.  I used the My Pink Stamper halloween set for the "Boo!" And, I used my first ever border punch....Martha Stewart graveyard (I'm sure she has a fancier name for it).



I also made a little Hello Kitty Birthday card using the Hello Kitty Cartridge, DCWV paper and some crinkle ribbon I made.

Thank you for stopping by!  How about a little Blog Candy??? You know you want some...

Please leave with your favorite Halloween or B-day treat and become a follower to enter....Please comment by Tuesday, November 1st and I'll draw on Wednesday, November 2nd.

I thought since I love grab bags SO much and can never pass them up....how fun at Halloween to do a secret grab bag full of crafty goodness....It will be lots and lots of fun!

Now on to the next hopper....Ruthie

Very cute door hanger! Love the secret area in front....what a novel idea! My favorite Halloween treat is Caramel Apples.....I know they are messy but my Mom used to make bunches of the wrapped in wax paper and we got to decorate and pass them out on Halloween. We lived on a military base so trick or treating was safe. Great memory!

I have to say my favorite birthday treat which I cherish now because my Dad is in Heaven now. I have to say our Birthday Breakfast...our birthday's being the same week only 3 days apart we would celebrate together having breakfast out. I love those times as I said I cherish them now because he's in Heaven.

Adorable, I love the little part that opens with the boo! I used the door hangers for party invitations for my neighbors this year but should have done this for my co-workers!

My fave treat is anything peanut butter and chocolate, especially reese's cups at Halloween!
