Monster Mash Blog Hop


Welcome to the Monster Mash Blog Hop, brought to you by the design teams of Made Especially For You and Exploring Cricut!

Today the design teams of Made Especially For You and Exploring Cricut have teamed up to share with you all sorts of spooktacular monster-themed projects to help get your crafty gears turning for all those upcoming Halloween projects!

If you've come from Kristy's blog, you're in the right place! If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Ashley at Made Especially For You.

For my project, I created a banner.  I have been wanting to make a holiday banner for a while and figured this was as good a time as any.

I got out my two new and most favorite cartridges, Create a Critter 2 and Teddy Bear Parade.  I was so happy with the way this came out and hope to make a few more for the fall season

How I did it:
Cartridges:  Create a Critter 2 and Teddy Bear Parade
Paper:  Coredinations and DP paper from stack I got at Joann's from a few years ago
Stamps:  All Peachy Keen
Doodeling, ribbbon twine

We also have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes to those who comment on every stop of the hop!
