Artbooking Week #3

Hello!  welcome back to another week of Artbooking!  Thanks for bearing with my crazy post last week... since many of you e-mailed me to check and make sure everything was ok....  I will write about that at the end of this post...

Now-  If you are coming from Shalana's blog- WELCOME!  If you are just popping on to the hop through my blog- no problem... you'll make your way to hers as you make your way through the hop.

This week I am showing my "random" project.  We were required to make a card, layout and mini album and then the 4th project was our choice and we could show all 4 in any order we chose...

I had more fun with glitter for this weeks project...  I LOVE our glitter paper.

I am starting to think about fall and came up with this cute Halloween themed treat holder.  Right now it's holding a handful of spider rings I found in my closet... (why?  I don't

I used the following pages from the cricut book to locate my designs:

I cut the solid pumpkin in black glitter paper at 1.5 inches

I cut the jack-o-lantern from brown glitter paper at 1.5 inches (make sure you use REAL DIAL SIZE ON ALL THE DESIGNS I LIST HERE)


I cut the fence in black glitter paper at 5 1/5 inches long (In addition to pushing REAL DIAL SIZE... you also need to select FIT TO LENGTH.  It ends up being roughly 2.5 inches tall.  I attached the fence to my project and trimmed it where it hung over the edges.)
Cut the " BEWARE" at 1 inch tall in brown glitter paper.

The finished project:  As it gets closer... I'll take the spiders out and fill with candy.  I used liquid glass on the back of every piece so it won't come loose.

I hope you love this project!  Now head on over to Mary's blog to see what she's cooked up this week!

In Other news:

Last week we rushed out of town to be with my Father in law.  We sat by his bedside for 3 days and finally, on Sunday he passed away and suffered no more pain.  It was a terrible loss but we are grateful for the knowledge that his time here was ending.  It allowed us those precious days to be with him and say goodbye.  So for those of you that e-mailed me in response to my posting that I was gone for a family emergency... THANK  YOU!  I read them all but responded to only a few as I had time.

But I must say your project is awesome!!
