Paper Pieced Halloween Cards!!!

I made these two cards for a challenge on Facebook! Scrappy Jak sent the card stock and ribbon to me and asked to make two cards for the month of October using her supplies! She came up with a brillant idea to have a "CARD OF THE MONTH CLUB"! I posted them today on Facebook and thought I would share!
I paper pieced the pumpkin and frog! Oh, and I got to use my I-ROCK! :-)
I thought I would enter them in a few challenges that were going on this week too:

Creative Scrappers Challenge #124

I made this layout last night for a challenge over at Creative Scrappers!
This picture was taken when my hubby and I went to Turks and Caicos earlier this year! We rented a car and drove to the very, very end of the island! There was a dock with this hammock and picnic table....oh, and miles of ocean! We hung out for awhile, soaked up the sun, and took some cute shots! A great place to kick back and relax! Wonderful memories!

My Pink Stamper Challenge!

I decided to do a two page layout for the Christmas that is coming up....just around the corner! This layout is for a challenge over at My Pink Stamper!

The title "Christmas" is all stamped letters, which I cut out afterwards! I love the sting of lights! My favorite! :-)

This next piece opens up so you can add more pictures or writing inside. The snowflakes are stamped too!

This is the open view.....

Here is the second page of the layout.....
Finally, a shaker box, which is another favorite part of this layout!

Can't wait to get some good photos this Christmas! Have lots of spots to fill!
