Simply Scrapping Crafts Haunted Hallow Blog Hop!

Welcome to Simply Scrapping Crafts First Annual Haunted Hallow Hop!  We have quite a line-up for you today filled with lots of tricks and treats!  Now what would trick or treating be without candy?  Eye candy that is!  Our DT has been busy at work in Dr. Jekyll's lab creating just the right formula to inspire your hauntingly sweet projects this year.  Be sure to comment all of the blogs along the way because we have "hidden" some extra special treats along the way.  There is no way to tell where we have them stashed, so be sure not to miss out!  Some of our hop hosts are giving an extra entry for becoming a follower.  Who doesn't appreciate more chances to win right? 

 All winners will be announced on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 via the DT blogs and also in the hop room at SSC, which can easily be accessed here.  You have until 11:59PM EST tonight, October 16, 2010 to comment for your chance to win.  All you need to do is click on each link and leave a comment as you hop along to the end of the list.   


Are you ready for a frightfully wicked Haunted Hallow Hop?  Let's get to hoppin'!
First off, I'd like to let you know I'm not a big Halloween fan - sorry! However, Halloween is in the fall, so I went ahead with a fall theme - hope that works! ;)


Card recipe: Cardstock (LSS, Bazzil), Patterned paper (Making Memories, Girls Paperie, Basic Grey, Crate), Stamps (Hero Arts "Mi Casa"), Ink ("Staz-on, Tim Holtz Distress Ink), Other (twine)
Lots of paper piecing, as you can see.  :) I also had just gotten my first Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads the day I made this, and I was so excited, I went a little overboard with the distressing on the house (edited for Lisa; the house is from the Hero Arts "Mi Casa" stamp set - gotta love it!)

Now please hop on over to my utra-talented, uber sweet sistah who brought this whole hop together, Pryn!

One last thing - if you are a follower, please leave an extra comment, and you'll be entered twice for the prize! And I will be double-checking. ;)
