DAY ONE-It's the Great Pumpkin Blog Hop October 29th & 30th

Welcome to  DAY ONE of  "IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN BLOG HOP" 
 *** THIS IS A TWO-DAY HOP *** 
and it's ALL ABOUT PUMPKINS!
On October 29 th & 30th, come see at least one new pumpkin project
from each blogger on each day about pumpkins (and maybe a few other projects as well!) Prizes will be offered for visitors of DAY ONE and visitors of DAY TWO, but A GRAND PRIZE will be offered to those who choose to hop and comment on BOTH DAYS from our AWESOMELY UBER TALENTED HOSTESS!! :) If you have just come from our AMAZINGLY TALENTED HOSTESS AMY, you are in the right place! If you have come here by chance, please hop along and start with Amy so you don't miss one amazing thing! I am also offering blog candy myself and I will have one of my sons pick a random winner that has left a comment on both days and is a follower. The blog candy winner will be announced on Monday by 12 Noon PST. The blog candy is a surprise  and you won't be disappointed. I am at CKU (Creating Keepsakes University) Reunion in San Diego, California and am getting WONDERFUL goody bags and I may just add some stuff to the blog candy... 
WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR?? LOL


I have a few projects to share.. I made these cards and was in a silly mood (as i am sure is obvious) and really liked how they came out! They just made me giggle so I hope it does you too! I cut them out with my Cricut and they fit in 5 x 5 envelopes but i don't remember what size I actually cut them with. 



   I also included my two witches' shoes cards. As you can see, you can really add ANYTHING to a card, scrapbook page or canvas.... and it gives it dimension, character and really adds to your creation! 






THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX WE CREATE FOR OURSELVES!











Thank you so much for visiting me! Your next stop is the UBER TALENTED ASHLEY... 
You are going to LOVE what this amazing creative genius has done for you!

Below is a complete list of all of the participants. PLEASE check back each day :) We can't wait to hear your thoughts because we LOVE feedback :)
