October Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Pals Blog Hop where we are celebrating an early Halloween and Harvest season. This month we are sharing Halloween and fall projects using our wonderful Stampin’ Up! supplies.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Paper Crafts by Patti, number 25 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.


Wow, I can’t believe it’s already October and that Fall weather has descended upon us! It’s seems like just yesterday that my day to day existence looked something like this:

Well, if not yesterday, then it was exactly like this last week, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, where our family was taking our annual vacation. Nothing like the smell of salt water in the morning! But that was then, and this is now, and I’m back in Pennsylvania with grey skies and rain. Sniff, sniff…

But not to worry, cause there are fun things happening, and Halloween is just around the corner, so that’s my theme for this month’s blog hop. I used a little of this and a little of that (boil, boil, toil, and trouble) and this is what I came up with:

The stamp sets are the photopolymer Bite Me! and the stamps from this month’s My Paper Pumpkin. The supplies I used to make this card are posted below the Blog Hop list.

Speaking of which:
