Two Shares

Okay, I know, it's been awhile. So sorry. Just been swamped with prepping for my stamp-a-stacks. I had one already and will have three more this weekend. Plus the thing we call LIFE has poked itself into my stamping world. So you have to deal with life while fitting stamping around it.

I'm bringing you two shares today to make up for my absence! Does that make you happy??? I hope so. The first share is my last for Halloween. My Sweethearts' daughter's birthday in on Oct 30.  Each year her party revolves around Halloween activities. We had a party here with about 7 girls ranging in age from 5-9. Our project was an 8x8 scrap page, which included a picture of each girl with the birthday girl. So, as they worked on their pages, each girl posed for the pic. We printed them right on the spot. By the time their pages were done, the pic was ready to be put on the page. It was a big hit. Amazingly, the 5 year old did the best stamping!!! She absolutely blew me away.

The page the kids did was a simplistic adaptation from this page, which I believe I have previously posted......

 Here is the kids page....the two cuties are my granddaughter, Alorah, on the left and my Sweeties' daughter, Hannah, the birthday girl, on the right. They are also in costume, hence the reasoning for all the lipstick and grownup makeup. This is Alorah's page so she did all the stamping and decorating on her page.

For the second card, it is one we did in Big Shot class this past Sunday.

Tried to go for somewhat of a shabby chic look. We used the new Joyful Season letterpress plate found on page 42 in the Holiday Mini. It is paired with the also new Tasteful Trim die on page 17 in the Holiday Mini. I will come back later and post the full list of supplies used. I've got to run out for my appointment now.

Thanks for stopping by. Go create something wonderful today!
