Thankful Thursday Design Team Halloween Blog Hop

Wahoo...Halloween is coming and I LOVE Halloween! I love the fresh crisp air, the changing leaves, the pumpkins...all of it!  Well Thankful Thursday's Design Team loves Halloween too and we all have some fabulous crafts to share with you!

If you came from XXXXXXXXXXXXXX then you're in the right spot.  It you just stumbled upon this blog hop, well then, Welcome!  Head back to XXXXXXXX to go back to the beginning and see all the great creations.

I fell in love with the Cricut cartridge Mini Monsters and used it to cut my title, "Pick of the Patch" and the pumpkins shown on the next page!

Aren't they cute?  (I was talking about the pumpkins, but the kids are too, right???)

Well, did you hear there is a great prize????  A Cricut Lite Cart called Celebrate with a Flourish!  
I love to scrapbook our pumpkin patch trips, but I worry they all start to look alike!  This year I went with a bright set of (Martha Stewart, I think!) fall leaves paper.  It really set the right note!

Thankful Thursday Design Team Pirate theme!!!!

Arggghh!  Hello there matey!  Did you know September is National Pirate month and that there is an actual "Talk Like a Pirate Day?"  To keep up with the pirate theme, this week's Thankful Thursday challenge is pirate theme!

Pirate son feels he too old for "pirates."  What should I do?  I know, I'll use a pirate's best friend on a layout.  What (who?) is a pirate's best friend?  Treasure, of course!  And what's just like treasure hunting in modern times?  Geocaching!

Here is a simple layout I created all about my children geocaching with their grandparents.
Left page says "Treasure Hunt and features a treasure chest.  The background paper actually had grandparent phrases (like hugs and kisses, grandma's house) all over it.  I used a black marker to add details to the treasure chest.

On the right page I featured a compass!  I think it turned out cute!
