Alphabet Challenge

This week's challenge was to do a theme with Halloween. I went with the pumpkin shape card from wrap it up. I added some stickles to give it some sparkle.

Here another fun project I put together for We had to make something with a tree. I always make cards so I went with something different. I put together a 8x8 scrap page. It means a lot to me because it a photo of me and the man that I love. It has been a long time since I felt this way about anyone. We have been together for a year and I still feel like a little girl when I see him. We are long distance for now, he lives in Milwaukee and I live in Chicago, We are a hour and a half away from each other so it does take some planning. I wouldn't change a thing about it.
The tree is cut at 4 inches and is from the sweetheart cartridge and so are the little people.The grass is from PDDU and so is the moon which was cut at 2 inches. The sentiment is from scrappy moms stamp set the sweet something collection

I love to craft and all things provo craft. I recieve a loom for christmas in hopes that I will start to knit. I will see how it goes.

Twlight shirt

I wanted to give this shirt to my cousin for her birthday and didn't have time to use my Yudu to make it. I decided to hand paint it. I cut some vinyl using my cricut and the gypsy. The font I used is plantin schoolbook and the heart is from doodlecharm and the florist is from gypsy wandering.

The first thing I did after cutting the vinyl out was to hand paint over the letters. The pain I used is the brand Tulip soft fabric paint.I used the colors white velvet and red metallics
I let the shirt dry over night and heat set it to give it a finish look. I think it turned out alright.

"Edward" card

I made this card for my cousin because she is a huge fan of twlight and thought it would be something cute for her. I used PDDU for the boy. I cut it out at 3' and I used peachy keen to stamp on the face. I added some stickles for that extra glam. I think it came out alright.

Gifts for my Cousin

My little 12 yr old cousin is a huge fan of Twilight and I wanted to give her something nice for her birthday. I made her a card and brought her some stuff. The shirt I hand and I will give more details on it. Here is the photo
