Happy Halloween and Scraps of Darkness Horror Movie Challlenge

Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you all have a fabulous day and lots treats!

Scraps of Darkness had a challenge to scrap your favorite horror movie.

The rules:

1. Scrap your favorite horror movie. You can use an image of the movie poster on the LO, an image from the movie, or scrap it any way you choose.

2. Your layout must be at least 50% Scraps of Darkness, and you may enter more than one layout.

3.  The contest starts now and entries must be posted in this thread by midnight PST on October 30th.
 
Instead of my favorite, my layout was scrapped in honor of a horror movie that freaked my out the most.  I love (really love) horror movies so when The Grudge came out, of course I wanted to see it.  Boy am I glad I waited until it came out on DVD.  The Grudge had me under the covers, eyes closed, ears plugged.  Over the years I have tried to watch it again and again - yet each time is the same. Me freakin' out...someone coming to turn it off.  One day I will actually finish it but until then...I'll just scrap it.
 
Supplies: All Hallows' Eve Kit - Scraps Of Darkness; letters - Making Memories-Noel

Again Happy Halloween and thank you for stopping by.

Until next time - happy scrappin'! ~ Carol

First Day of Halloween with Simply Betty Stamps...

Last week I decided to play along with Simply Betty Stamps because, well simply because I love her images.

But of course life gets in the way sometimes or should I say pneumonia (my son and I) gets in the way.  It was nice being home but was a terrible way to spend anytime off.

So know that my house is sterilized and open for business I am final able to get in my craft room.

The first day of Halloween...

...my true love gave to me,
An owl in a rotten oak tree.

Supplies: Cricut Cartridge Happy Hauntings, Jolee's Stickers,
pattern pattern Echo Park

Hope you enjoyed the card, thank you for stopping by.
