Vintage Halloween

I LOVE all things vintage. So when I found this sign while visiting my family in Utah, I snatched that baby right up.  What do you think? I love mine!!

Halloween Mini Album

I LOVE Halloween and Scrapbooking So MUCH!! TWO of my favorite things. I made this fun album during a girls getaway which was so much fun. I loved everyone minute of it. Scrapbooking and eating yummy food for 2 days straight. One of the funnest thing I have ever done. 

These pictures were taken at Disneyland Trick or Treating. Which I highly recommend. It was such a fun night. 

I love this photo of my little man as Captain Hook on his Grandpa's back. My little guy loves his Grandpa so much! 

Don't you just love this one!! I love how cute it turned out. My cute little Tinkerbell and her cousins are her fairy friends. 

This one makes me laugh!! DANGEROUS! He is a little bit of a crazy guy. LOL!

I will always cherish this album and look back and wish they would stay this age forever.

Magnetic Halloween Frame

My favorite thing about this frame is the orange chevron paper. I am totally in LOVE with this paper. The other neat thing about this frame is the embellishments and the picture can easily be taken off and  switched with different embellishments and pictures!! SO FUN!! I made one for both of the Grandma's for Halloween. And of course one for me.

Magnetic Halloween Picture Frame


  • The banner removeable!!
  • The embellishments are magnetic!!
  • You can change the way it looks anytime you want. If you make a bunch of EMBELLISHMENTS.

  • Lowe's- 5x8 magnetic sheet.  They were only 67 cents!!
  • Frames- Dollar Store. Super cute frames!! Am I Right?
  • Teresa Collins Scrapbook paper and Embellishments
  • Magnetic Strips-Micheal's Craft Store
  • Modge Podge
  • Sponge Brush

How to:
1. Modge podge the Orange Chevron scrapbook paper onto the magnetic sheet.
2. Cut out your embellishments and cover them with modge podge.
3. Stick on your magnetic strips to the back of your embellishments. Your embellishments will hold your photo onto the frame. :)

All done! Easy as pie. :) Now you have a cute gift to give to the Grandparents for Halloween.

Chalkboard Book

I have found a new obsession! Pinterest is more than awesome it's beyond AMAZING. I have found so many neat ideas from Pinterest. One of them is this really neat Chalkboard book that can be made out of an old board book or a board book from the dollar store. I found mine at the Dollar Store. The idea came from here http//

Don't you love the Eraser I made for my little girl? I LOVE it!!

Thank you Regina Lord for the genius idea!! Mine is a little different from her's. The tittle is made out of scrapbook paper and sticker letters. I used modge podge to adhere it. I covered it with a coat of modge podge to give it a glossy look. The other thing I did differently is I made a cute eraser out of modge podge and scrapbook paper. I think the eraser is my favorite part!!  Emma is already so obsessed with her's and she has tried to carry it around with her the entire day. So I would have to say this project has been a success.
