Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to the  Hop, this is the first time I have participated, please leave me a note, let me know how I am doing or give a suggestion. I am honored to be included with such a  talented group of people.
My project is my fun Haunted House.  I loved the cut and decided I wanted to find some cute paper to give the house some color.  I suspect there are  "friendly" spirits that live in this house.
Yes, that is Chip and Dale giving the cat on the porch a little scare.
I love to make little gifts to send to my daughter's friends that are away at college.  Recently I suprised a couple of gals with the witches shoe and notes  below.

I then felt that I wanted to send my cousin a little Halloween treat so I made the pumpkin boxes that I had seen on the cricut board, they were so cute I could not resist.
And then one last project that I have been working on.  Again I saw some shadow boxes created by a very talented  cricut circle member, I used the idea to make shadow boxes for my son, daughter and her friend at Iowa State.  Each month they receive a new background for their shadow boxes.  October's installment are:

Make sure to visit Tracie's blog next.  If you are joining the hop at my site first please make sure to go to Yolonda's blog to catch the entire Halloween hop.

Is it Really October

Looks like I have not done anything crafty since August, do you really think that is true!  Not exactly... my daughter had my computer with her at away at college, I did not know how to get my photos on this new computer, now I do and I have many projects waiting.  Make sure to stop by the blog hops because I can not post everything that I have been doing lately....

I will have to edit this later because I can not find the photos on my computer.
