The blog hop is here! Today I will be partaking in a hop with 10 other talented ladies. If you are coming over from crafty Sandra's blog then you are on the right track. If you happened to have stumbled across my blog/post and would like to join us from the beginning then please click here.
The lovely Stephanie from Always Crafting is hosting today's hop full of fun projects and inspiration. The theme is Fall & Halloween so you will find an assortment of goodies, both blog candy and eye candy. We are happy to be sponsored by SCRAPADABADOO. They generously donated a Tim Holtz on the edge Die and a Kaiser Kraft Paper Pack. However, don't be fooled and think that this die is regular, it is nothing of the sort. It is an autographed die signed by Mr. Holtz himself. One lucky hopper will have the opportunity to win this grand prize. In order to be eligible for the prize you must visit every blog and leave a sweet comment. You will have until Wednesday to hop around and comment. Winners will be announced on Thursday.
So onto my project...
I created a Halloween Back to School theme project. I'm still stuck on back to school. Lol. I think it's because my sister just started grad school and I'm looking into joining her. I actually miss school. It was all that studying that I don't miss much of :) For this set, I used the lovely sweethearts Mr & Mrs Frankenstein.
Picture 1: My set of altered comp books and newly created post it holder. Im going to make a bookmark as well but that will later.
Picture 2: This is an altered mini composition book. It features the Bride with a couple of amazing looking skullies chomping at the bit. And of course like all men, Frankstein couldnt let her be so he's in the background trying to hog up the spotlight. :)
Picture 3: This customized post-it note holder spotlights Frankie. I learned how to make this holder from one of our fellow blogger Trish. She was kind enough to re-shoot her video for me so I could understand the measurements better. And well I did. I got the hang of it and this is my 3rd one already.
Picture 4: And finally the piece of resistance! (said in a french accent). This is an altered composition book featuring the Sweethearts. In August I had altered several notebooks. I noticed that the Mead brand is better to work with. Its much more flexible than the Staples brand. So if you are planning to alter a comp book for yourself, go with the Mead brand.

I will be offering blog candy. For the moment I will keep it a surprise. But it might be a favorite tool of mine that isn't used by many but I prefer it to shade and color. Or it might be another type of crafting goodie. To be eligible, become a follower and tell me what do you like most about the Fall season. Make sure to come back, Ill have another project to share.
