Also in scrappy news, you all have got to go check out the awesome sneak peeks for CMK's September card kit done by the very talented Danielle Flanders. You can see them here. Even if you're not a cardmaker, the papers in the kit are 12x12, so you can use them for layouts, too.
Anyway, to celebrate my favorite holiday, I made a *Luxe Halloween tree* using the new Color Me Halloween paper. To make my tree, I collected a bunch of branches, tied them together, spray painted them black, and put fake spider webbing over them. I then cut out the designs from the paper and, depending on the design, I colored some of them in with markers and left some black and white. I then heat embossed them with UTEE to make them glossy (and to make them stronger since they'd be hanging). Finally, I strung them on wire and hung them from my tree (along with a few Halloween ornament balls I found at a craft store).
Also, if you haven't heard, CMK is hosting a Scrap Pink crop September 26th-28th. Scrapbooks etc. is partnering with Susan G. Komen for the Cure® to hold a “Scrap Pink” fundraising campaign in September 2008 at stores across North America. I, along with the rest of the design team, will be posting challenges and inspiration on the 27th for anyone to participate in. You can read more about it here.
I hope everyone is having a fun and restful weekend!!
