this and that

I am guest posting today over at The Crafting Chicks! If you have never visited with The Crafting Chicks, you are missing out. There's not a day that goes by that I don't wish I had more time to make yet another of their adorable projects. {You might remember this project.} I'm sharing the "happy BOO to you" free download {available in the download section in my sidebar} with their fans as well as two new ways to incorporate the print into your spooky home decor.

Here's how the original looks:

And here's the tutorial I'm sharing over at The Crafting Chicks. Learn to make your own photo mattes with chipboard, recycled cereal boxes or even an old matte you have laying around.

You can also download the print by clicking on the download arrow button in the box below.

My Have Fun and Craft On print is the giveaway item up for grabs at The Spunky Diva today through  October 13th. If you don't have one for yourself already, now's your chance to win one!

The new Design Team gallery is up today, as it is the first day of every month. Each team member chose an item that had been posted and shared in the w.c.s. Tumblr as their inspiration. If you don't know what Tumblr is {and I didn't either until a few months ago} you just have to read today's post at w.c.s. It is explained so clearly and concisely, my attempt would pale in comparison. 

Here is what I chose for my inspiration...and this is my interpretation of that piece of art. 

I don't usually scrap about myself, and certainly not about what I'm watching on tv, but it all seemed to come together nicely. Did you notice that there wasn't a photo anywhere on the layout? Did you notice the nearly monochromatic scheme with just small pops of color in the heart shapes? Yep, I was a bit of a rebel this month.
