Whimsical Wednesday Halloween Blog Hop

Happy Friday and Welcome to the Whimsical Wednesday Halloween Blog Hop.  If you have arrived here from Melanie's Blog you are in the right place!  If not you can start at the beginning of the hop here.
I was assigned a Home Decor Project so I decided to do some albums that will decorate my mantel for Halloween.  I am going to put pictures of my kids in all their different costumes over the years.  I thought this would be such a fun decoration to put out every year!




My Supplies:
4x6 Heavy Weight Chip Board Pieces  -  Joann.com
Crop-A-Dial and Eyelets
Cricut Cartridge Mini Monsters
Staz-on Black Ink
K&CO Spooktacular Paper Pad
True Black, Orange Zest, New Leaf and Plum Pudding Cardstock  -  Papertrey Ink
Coordinations and glitter paper  -  Bazzil
Green Glitter ribbon and Pompom ribbon  -  Joann
Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink
Orange, Purple and Green Stickles
Irock and Gems

Here are the sponsors for this hop and the prizes they have generously given us to give away.
1. Trendy Twine  -  Original Sample Pack
2. Trade Fish Designs  -   Rest In Peace Stamp Set
3. Prairie Bird Boutique  -  One bundle of Shabby Crinkle Ribbon-you get to chose the bundle.

Now for the GRAND PRIZE:

The grand prize for the hop is from PSA Essentials. It is a stamp package valued at $75.00 and includes the Stamper Body, A Peal and Stick Stamp Set, and an Orange/Black Inker.

In order to be eligible for the blog candy you must leave a comment on each blog and then go back to Whimsical Wednesday at the end of the hop and leave a comment.

Your next stop is  Karen's blog!  I hope you have enjoyed my projects for today.  Good luck!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)
