We've made it to HALLOWEEN! WOW-hasn't it just been a BLAST?! Thank you SO much for joining us as we hop along and countdown! (click HERE to be taken to Lisa Peter's Blog to begin) I will choose a winner for the TRICK-or-TREAT BAZZILL Bag (pictured below) this evening-so be sure you are a FABULOUS FRIEND (follower) and leave comments at each post, they're each an entry!

My daughter received this card from her Aunt Chrissy (my best friend and her God-mother) and I loved it! Of course I did really, it's Close To My Heart. I happen to have gotten this stamp set and yet yet to use it too-so I was extra inspired.

I created this one, once again using the AMAZING products from BAZZILL, particularly their SPOOKY and KOOKY line. *Note that ALL of the projects I've created from them this ENTIRE month are from the SAME original supplies I was sent* I switched around a few things, but you can see where the inspiration came from. I just ADORE these sweet owls and jumped on the opportunity to use the delightful crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam again! Don't you just LOVE the pleats too?! SOOOO FABULOUS, BAZZILL!

This card is also inspired from Chrissy's original-and HOW PERFECT is the witchy shoe paper?! CA-UTE! I may go back and color her striped tights-I over looked it. I added a BAZZILL 'edge'-and what do you think of the PIPE CLEANERS?! They were sitting there from the Kinder project-so they wound up on my card. I'm that girl-the one who uses whatever is within reach, even if it was just left on the kitchen island! ;) Sometimes I forget how much I LOVE stamping, especially Close To My Heart (I 'm a consultant for them). This was a Stamp-of-the-Month. FABULOUS!

This sweet little guy is an individually wrapped candy holding mummy box! I used actual Curad gauze and cut t to wrap. It was tied at the bottom and then inked up. I really enjoy googley-eyes, so I was excited to tuck them in here for him to see ;)

This is the box, opened up to reveal the Hershey nuggets. The EEK is stamped from an SU set designed just for these. The remaining three are wrapped from SPOOKY and KOOKY BAZZILL scraps.

I used a $1 stamp for the sentiment on the inside bottom of the box. You know I'm all about detail, so I like this little surprise there to be found as you eat the candy!

You may have noticed some of the background-it's a garland I was working on for Halloween. I want to add some die-cuts and some of the BAZZILL cardstock stickers to it and then hang it over my fireplace, NEXT Halloween!

I must tell you again that I'm really grateful for each of you that take the time to share in these hops and comment. I hope you've been inspired by the talented designers I'm honored to be among. Speaking of......I'm featured on the BAZZILL Blog today, amongst some unbelievable scrapbook SUPERSTARS like Kelly Goree, Mona, Amy Totty and MORE! Take the time to browse through there too-it's always so inspiring! You can hop along now to the Scraps to Treasure blog as we end the countdown. Technically, Raven's Birthday Hop ended yesterday, but it was chalk FULL of fun projects so if you missed it, be sure to hop through (your entry will still be eligible for MY giveaway until).

You have until 5:00pm Mountain Time TODAY to enter to win this TRICK-or-TREAT BAZZILL BAG! Each comment from the beginning of the countdown will be an entry. I really wish you a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN full of candy, fun and WICKED memories! MWAH!
