Daily Download Day#26 and Halloween Goodies!

I’m so excited to tell you our Halloween Bash Forum is up!  I would shout it from my roof if I knew anyone would hear it.  Did I mention I live in the middle of no where.  Anyway!  Go take a look and start playing!  We have some amazing contests with huge prizes.  The best prize?  $50 Visa Gift Card for the winner of the costume contest.  Yes, this is something you will definitely want to play along with.  There will also be prizes for the 2nd place and 3rd place.

Seriously though.  I can’t tell you how big this is – there just isn’t enough words.  I hope you all play along with us.  Even the Speed Scraps have prizes to hand out during the scraps – not to mention a great prize for completing the Scrap.  Did I tell you about the blog train?  I’m telling ya this is going to be a HUGE event this year!

This layout is by CrinkleToast!  She did this layout for the progressive scrap challenge!

I really like how she layered the pictures!  The ribbon with the stitching is great too!  I love the candy corn paper as a background.  Great job CrinkleToast!  Stop by her gallery and leave her some love!

Here is the layout by Lisa – our GingerBread Girl.  She did this layout for the color challenge!

I love Lisa’s clustering!  The positioning of the pictures is great and so is the layering.  I have to admit that I just simply love the ooze that is dripping – awesome touch!  Stop by her gallery and leave her some love as well!

Daily Download Day #23

I’m reaching out to our teams to help me keep you entertained as I give you our daily download links.  Here is a great and true story that took place in Charmaine’s house last night!   Charmaine is the fantastic designer – Wyld Web Designs – that has made this great daily download for you.  Casey is Charmaine’s 3 year old son….
Husband: Casey, come downstairs for a minute.
Casey: ok, just a second, I’m putting lotion on!
H: ummm, ok…..come downstairs and bring the lotion!
C: ok!!
….arrives shortly, one pantleg hiked way up and said leg covered in….
A&D diaper ointment!

Daddy had a long talk with him about not putting “lotion” on unless Mommy or Daddy are with him

I was laughing when I read this. I can just picture my 3 year old doing this too! Thanks for that great story Charmaine! At least you know Casey’s leg won’t have a rash on it! hahahaha

Ok, now that you all are entertained, here is your daily download!

If you have a funny story, or a joke you would like to share please let me know!  I would love to post it here!  Have you made a layout with the daily download?  I would love to show it off too!

Have a great Saturday!!

Let’s Get Crafty: Halloween Crafts

Hi GingerScrapers! I know..I know..I have missed a few Crafty Thursdays…I’m sorry! I have been so busy. I am the team Mom for the Freshmen Football team…our games are on Thursdays. But, not only is it the games, we feed the team and caoches before each game. It’s a big meal and I’m in charge of it!  I have to be at the school at 7am to collect all the food from the players. Make sure the food all gets warmed up by the lunch ladies, then serve the food at 2…game time at 5. So, what I’m saying here is…I’m a busy girl during Football sason 🙂 This week my kids don’t have school. We still have a football game though, but I dont have to collect the food until noon:) So, I figured I would do a little Let’s Get Crafty post for you!

Halloween is in like 10 days. I went online to find some cheap and easy Halloween projects to do with my kids and I am going to share them with you!

This first one is a great way to use up all those baby food jars you have laying around..

It’s super easy and fun to make with the kiddos. Go to Skip to my Lou for a tutorial.

How about a spooky tree…

You can get instructions and templates for this one here

How about a cute fabric banner…

You can learn how to make this on Running With Needles

How about making a “Hybrid Banner” Instead of fabric, use your digital scrapbooking supplies! There are so many cute Halloween kits at GingerScraps you could use! How about I give you a free template to make yourself a banner 🙂

I used the kit Gobblin Delights which is a GingerScraps collab that you will be able to get at our Halloween party next weekend! I use Statements by Jodis part for my banner:) Make sure you come to our Halloween Party at GingerScraps to get this kit and lots of fun games and prizes!

You can download your Free Template here!

I hope you make some time to get Crafty today! See you at the Halloween Party
