Scraps Challenge @ ScrapTiffany

Hello all! Don't forget about my challenges starting this Monday, October 4th!!! These challenges will run through at least the second week in December!! ALL SEI giveaways!!!! If you haven't seen their 4 new lines, please take a peek and you will get excited about entering our challenges!

Also, I have a couple of Blog Hops coming up in November:

November 1st- Dia de los Muertos Blog Hop (It will start HERE!!)

November 8-9- ScrapTiffany Holiday Blog Hop

So, on to today's ScrapTiffany challenge. If you saw my other posts during the week you have probably noticed I used the new SEI collection "Monsterville" for two different challenges and so I had some left overs... 

I decided to create an invitation explosion box. I have had Halloween Bday parties for my boy Sebastian since he was born (11 years!) and this year since we moved.... well, it will be the first time we don't have a huge celebration :(

I still felt inspired to create an invitation...

I got inspired to create this box from Mary from Made by Momo. 

Hope you like what you see!!!

Oh! Did you notice something I did wrong on my project?? If you do I just might send you a little something! 

Comment about it!! Have fun!!

1st Ever Bottle Swap/ Winter~Christmas Theme CLOSING SUNDAY OCT. 3rd!

Good morning my dear followers and viewers! I was facebooking yesterday and I commented on someone’s post. They were asking if we knew about a bottle swap going on.
So, to not bore you with all the chit-chat Tanya and I had, I decided to host my very first bottle swap!!

Here is what you have to do:

  • Send an email to me, and put "Bottle Swap Sign  Up" in the subject line.
  • Please include your full name, blog address and your full street address.
  • U.S. swappers only, sorry. It can be very pricey to ship internationally.
  • 2 Liter bottle 
  • You must spend at least $25.00
  • Value of things will be retail, for example, if you use a 40% coupon for a Tim Holtz distress ink, you will count the retail value of it, not the discounted price. 
  • I will be contacting everyone as a group when sign ups close on Sunday October 3th.
  • I will have a survey/questioneer asking about your favorites and other things to help your partner choose/buy your goodies.




I have Mr. Linky up so that we can start visiting our blogs and get to see our styles.
Don’t forget to send me that email no later than October 3th.

Week 3 of Playing with Serenade

Hello my dear followers!! Before I show you my newest creation with the Serenade cartridge I want to remind you of my BFF, Gaby and yours truly Weekly challenges starting this Monday, October 4th. We have an AWESOME sponsor, SEI!!!!! We will have SEI paper and embellishments EVERY week!!! For at least 10 weeks!!! Don't forget to join in the fun!!!!

Today it was my turn to play with image #15/a vase with a swirly thingy in it J

I found another awesome phrase and used it here. But, after printing the phrase I thought it sounded a bit negative… I wouldn’t want to receive a card with this phrase… hehehe

Here is the phrase:
“Trust is like a vase… once it’s broken, though it can be fixed, it will never be the same” Unknown

With that in mind I used Crackle Accents from Inkssentials to make the vase look cracked. I loved the way it came out!

Paper is from K and Company and I used a MS border punch.

SO I thought I could ask you to interpret this phrase for me…… and I will have my BFF help me choose whose interpretation we like the best and I will send you the card! YEP! You get to win the card!!

You have until next Monday night to comment about your interpretation on the phrase!

SO now you get to hop along and see more creations from Serenade from this group of talented ladies!

Have fun!!!!

Hello friends!! My BFF and I will be hosting our very own BLOG HOP!!! and we have some very talented ladies joining in the fun too. For those of you that just love Halloween time.... and well, just need more of it... what a better way to continue celebrating this time!!

Here is a little history about what Day of the Dead is:

Day of the Dead (SpanishDía de los Muertos) is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and other countries. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. The celebration occurs on November 2. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. The Day of the Dead is a time of celebration. ( 

(keep reading for GIVEAWAY)

Here are some pictures about the Day of the Dead. You can see how colorful and festive it is. 

I see it as a celebration of life, a beautiful life that our loved ones had when they were here. 

So in honor of this day, my BFF and I will be doing a Blog Hop to celebrate the life of our loved ones.
