What I Love About Fall/Halloween Blog Hop Oct. 7-8


** I have two posts today, so if you are looking for the Sweet Stamping Treats Halloween Challenge post, please go HERE.

Welcome to the What I Love About Fall/Halloween  Blog Hop.  This hop is scheduled from Oct. 7 at 8:00 am through Oct.8 at 11:00 pm(central time).

If you just happened to come to this blog, you can start at the beginning with Lisa Peters-  If you just came from Gina's blog, then you are in the right spot.

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies.  There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.

The hop is a 2 day hop so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup twice.  Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops.  Please come back both days to see great projects.
To be eligible for the grand prize, you must visit each blog and leave a comment. You also MUST visit Lisa's blog and leave a comment on her blog for the day and also become a follower at "Scrapping With Lisa" and her facebook page:  Please let her know if you don't do facebook and she won't count that against you for the blog candy.  Now for the blog candy, I bet you are wondering what it could be.   It will be a grab bag full of goodies!!!

For today's project, I created a fun Halloween card.  I remember, as a little girl, always looking forward to Halloween so I could go trick-or-treating with my brothers!  Oh, how I looked forward to all of that candy!  LOL!  As a mother, I have enjoyed taking my oldest daughter out to get candy each Halloween, too.  Now, she is a teenager and prefers going with her friends.  I have another daughter, but she is much too young to go trick-or-treating right now.  This year, we will be staying in to pass out candy, and I'm looking forward to it! 

For my card, I used a cute stamp that says Trick or Treat Smell My Feet.  LOL!  I know many of you will remember that funny little rhyme from your childhood.  Unfortunately, I don't have the information on who makes this stamp.  I punched out the image with a circle punch and then colored with Copics.  The bats are also from the same stamp set.  I actually colored over the eyes of one bat and meant to color the eyes over in the other bat but forgot to do it before I took this picture.  Oops!  I used my Martha Stewart scoreboard to create the rosette.  All of the pp is by Doodlebug.  I love the bright, fun Halloween colors! 

Your next stop is Melinda's Blog.  Have a great day and please stop back tomorrow for another great project. 

Here is the complete lineup:
