My Stampin' Up! Classes

Halloween blog hop; August freebies winner!


 
Though the temps are still in the 70s, the hours of daylight are shorter and it feels like the end of summer. One neighbor asked me over to pick blueberries in her yard today. A second brought over some zucchinis, so I baked several loaves of zucchini bread - some with walnuts and some with chocolate chips - as well as 24 muffins. My hubby delivered two loaves to my neighbor, who also shared some beautiful tomatoes with us. We could have our own little farmers' market here in my neighborhood. That would be sweet!
 

 
 
Welcome to the Fright Night Blog Hop. My downline, Sherry, had the great idea for the hop. You might've come from Pearl's blog. But if this is your first stop, no worries. You can start anywhere and not miss a thing!
 
For my project, I'm sharing a Halloween sampler - a home decor item - that may be as sweet or creepy as you wish.
 
 
Here's a better look at the sampler. Everything is Stampin' Up! product except for the shadow box frame, which I bought at a craft store for $5. Instead of buying a new frame for each holiday, I can simply take out the straight pins holding the Modern Medley designer paper and everything adhered to it to the velvet backing and pin a new sampler! I love that. I used the Halloween Bash and Halloween Hello stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog (page 21), along with ultrafine black glitter (page 20).
  
Congratulations to Judy Q. in New York for winning my August Mystery Hostess freebies!
 
Judy actually placed two online orders via my Online Store at http://therubberroom.stampinup.net, so that could explain why her name was drawn by my daughter. Many thanks to the rest of you who participated. Here's the hostess code to use for your Online Orders with me in September: AKS76R6P. All you have to do to be eligible for the free hostess benefits is place an online order. It's that simple!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll continue on our Fright Night Blog Hop.
