LSHD Halloween Blog Hop

Photo: Don't forget this coming Wednesday... LSHD Blog Hop!!!

Happy Halloween!!!

This year for Halloween we, the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs DT, decided to get together and have a Halloween Blog Hop. I love that my daughter is in school now so I can finally put my creations to work! It's so fun to make some treat packages for the kids and my daughter makes sure SHE gets one too!

If you have been following the hop and have come from Michelle's Blog HERE  then you are in the right place. If you have just happened upon my blog please join us and head to Tricia's Blog HERE to start hopping with us.

For the Halloween Hop I made treat boxes for school and co-workers. I made 38 total! I needed something adorable and quick to put together. This seems to be the popular choice this year and with good reason! I love this file! Here is the link to SILLY PUMPKINS cutting file that I used from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.


Inside is a sucker upside down. I stapled the top of the green paper on either side of the sucker stick and glued my pumpkin piecing on the cover. 

I found this adorable idea on Pinterest! I love looking at a picture of all of them done - such a great feeling of accomplishment.


You don't want to miss out on the GRAND PRIZE!!!

Book of 1st's : Part 1

I made something similar to this for my daughter for her first year. I make a single layout page to put a couple pictures and then the 2nd page of the layout is going to be a calendar for that month. I write down all the important dates for that month : doctor appts, weight, height, 1st tooth ect., trips.

Here are some of the layouts I've shared so far.



All files used by Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.
