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

(Click on image for larger view)

Welcome to the What I Love About Fall/Halloween  Blog Hop: DAY TWO!!!  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 made a small note card with a Halloween button that the recipient can wear.  One of the things I love about Halloween -- and the holidays in general -- is all the fun holiday stuff you can find to decorate or wear.

While at the craft store one day, I came across this set of Halloween buttons by Darice.  I thought they were so cute!  They are small buttons -- just the right size to use as embellishments.  In fact, I thought they'd make perfect centers to rosettes!

For my project, I used Doodlebug papers.  The rosette was made with a Tim Holtz die (love that die!).  I then cut small slits into the polka dot paper and used those slits to hold the Halloween button.  The final touch was some ribbon.

The idea for the card is for my older daughter to write a little note on the inside of the card and then give it to one of her friends.  The button acts not just as an embellishment but also as a little gift that her friend can wear.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  If you haven't viewed my project for Day One of this hop, please scroll down!  Have a great Saturday!
