Haunted House Blog Hop

Beware! This is a blog hop of haunted houses where Halloween fright is glowing in the windows as ghosts and witches fly through the air...

Please join us and hop along starting with Jearise ( our hostess. She has provided some Halloween blog candy for all those that leave comments along the way. The drawing will be on October 6th using The winner will receive: K & Company Ghostly Greetings 12 x 12 paper pack, Stickles distress glitter glue pack, and EK Sticko's haunted house sticker pack. (I'll post a picture of the package on my blog but you only have to post the description I just provided.)

If you have traveled from Janet S.@  then you are on the right road and will continue over to Janet N. @  If you got lost and found yourself on my doorstep by mistake, you can head to the beginning of the road here: Jearise's blog (


I am not one to "celebrate" Halloween but I love to see the kids in their costumes..This layout is my first grandson, Nolan at age 1 1/2.  I have to say I am thankful for these Halloween hops because I am getting caught up with my scrap booking for the occasion..Since he is now 5, I guess it is about time wouldn't you agree?  lol   This is the first time I have used a black background and journaled with a white gel pen.. I am thinking I like the effect..:)

I also am not one to write down the name brands..never really felt the need before but I see that alot of people do it.  The ribbons are those one foot small spools, the Halloween title is a purchased title from my stash but I'm sorry I have no clue who manufactures them and the chipboard was purchased on clearance as is most of my items.  I do know that the yellow and orange cardstock is Bazzill because I rarely use any other brand, I just love their cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by!  I will have some blog candy so be sure to leave a comment..At least I would love for you to leave a comment.  You do not have to become a follower of my blog but I would love that if you would also.  Keep hopping, there is plenty more inspiration in this hop for you to channel into!  L)

As you can see I am just a basic scrapper gal..I love the paper piecing and the art works that others turn out but I am just not creatively inspired like they are.  What counts is that Nolan loves to get his album out when he comes to see his Mamaw and Papaw.

Here is the complete list in case you get lost or want to go back to a blog that caught your fancy..

I disagree with your ability to do a layout. I love your layout! The colors, letting and pictures work so well together. Give yourself a pat on the back and your grandson is adorable. Psss, I use blog hopping as an excuse to get motivated to scrap those pictures from a few years back. Thank you so much for being part of my first hop and I am already a follower.
