What I Love About Halloween Blog Hop October 7th

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(cental time).
If you just happened to come to this blog, you can start at the beginning with Lisa Peters-  If you just came fromMandie, 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.

Here is the complete lineup:

Suzanne You are here.  
Jearise and last stop.

To be eligible for the grand prize, you must visit each blog and leave a comment. You also MUST visit my blog and leave a comment on my blog for the day and also become a follower at "Scrapping With Lisa" and my facebook page:  Please let me know if you don't do facebook and I 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 the blog candy for my blog please leave a comment and become a follower.  I have three days of Halloween blog hops this month- October 7 and 8th and another hop on October 15th.  I will take all the comments for these three days and choose a winner by on the 16th of October.  Come back all three days and make a comment and you will have three chances to win.  The winner will receive a $10 gift card from their choice of either Michaels or Joanns.  

The first thing I like about Halloween is all the "little" kids dressed in costumes.  Whether it be a party, trick or treating or when I was teaching I always enjoy seeing kids dressed up.  
Here is my project for Day one of the Blog Hop.  I choose to do a layout using Happy Hauntings, Three Birds and Paper Doll Dress Up.  Here are the pictures and the recipe is below. 

Recipe:  All the costumed characters are cut at 4 inches from Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge.  The bodies were done with the blackout cut and then I used Peachy Keen stamps.  The little treat bags were cut with Three Birds.  They were a little big so I cut them down some by hand.  I added Stickles, gems, and  chalk ans Smooch Ink.  The haunted house is from Happy Hauntings and was cut at 8 inches.

Your next and last stop is Jearise

Have a great day and please stop back tomorrow for another great project.
