13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop - Day 1

13 Days of Halloween
Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  This hop is scheduled from Oct. 19 at 8:00 am through Oct.31 at 11:00 pm (central time).  It's that time of year when the nights are all spooky and creatures are known to wander the forests.  So sit for a spell with a nice cup of hot apple cider and check out all the great projects.

If you just happened upon my blog, you will want to start with Lisa Peters @  She is the awesome lady who pulled this hop together and is your first stop.  If you came here from the awesome Tami, then you are in the right spot!

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.

The hop is a 13 day hop with only 13 blogs to visit so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup 13 times.  Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops.  Please come back all 13 days to see great projects.  

Here is the complete lineup:

My project today is a card I made for last Halloween, but haven't posted yet (at least I don't think I did) ;).  I got the idea from a local scrapbooking class I attended and I just love it!  Think it's the cutest thing ever and so easy to create!  All you need is take regular black card stock, lots of 1/4" strips of paper (in a neutral - dirty color), ink, and googly eyes!  You just layer the strips in a haphazard way across the card front (you want to leave little spots of space where the black shows through), run an ink pad over them (you don't ink each individual strip), but leave a little space to put two googly eyes (close to each other) and there you have it.  A mummy card!  This one's great for kids.  I hope you enjoy it.  If you have any questions, please ask.

To be eligible for the grand prize, you must visit each blog and leave a comment. You also MUST visit Lisa's blog and leave a comment on her blog for the day and also become a follower at "Scrapping With Lisa" and her facebook page: Please let her know if you don't do facebook and she won't count that against you for the blog candy.  Now for the blog candy, I bet you are wondering what it could be.   It will be a big treat bag full of goodies.  She will also be posting an individual prize for each day of the hop also that everyone who hops that day will have a chance to win.

As far as blog candy from me.  Well, I'm gonna scrounge something up. LOL  I'll get a picture posted as soon as I can.  It will be some fun goodies for sure.  Please leave a comment and become a follower or note that if you already are one, if you would like to win.  Please include a way to contact you.   I only give treats to my followers. ;)

Your next stop is the lovely Brynn.  She's a great friend and an uber talented gal!   Have a great day and please stop back tomorrow for another great project.

XO ~ Amy Jo
