365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#227 El Cucuy Blog Hop -Scary Treat Box

Hi everyone!!! Welcome to El Cucuy AKA Boogie man Blog Hop, hosted by Celeste  and Yolie! If you are here from Ruthie September Ninth then you are in the right spot! I was so happy and excited to be a part of this fun hop, I guess it brings back spooky memories of my childhood when my mom and grandma would threaten me and say the cucuy is coming to get me if I don't behave! Well guess what now we tell our 4 year old son that.... I know you probably think it's child abuse by telling them that but it works! When I catch my son stepping foot in my  scrapbook room, I say "Uh-oh Cucuy!" and he will literally run out of there and leave my stuff alone. I tell him this because I have caught him drawing on my layouts that take me 3 hours to create, or grabbing my scissors, or grabbing my inks ugh!!! Sometimes 4 year olds have a mind of their own!

 For my Cucuy monster I decided to make him a scary Jack-O-Lantern, I cut the pumpkin from the October 31st seasonal cartridge... I LOVE that cart BTW!!!! The treat box is from the Spring Holiday Cards Seasonal Cricut cartridge. I am going to have a pumpkin carving party at my house next week and I am making an assortment of treat boxes to give out to my guests and I made this one for one of the guys, I guess my hubby approved because he loved this one! (my son not so much, I think he was spooked by the scary pumpkin!) This stamp is from Crafty Sprouts "Totally Witchn" stamp set and I also added a little green slime with my MS Drippy- Goo punch!

BLOG CANDY ALERT!!!!! I am giving away ONE Crafty Sprouts "Let's Go Blog Hopping"  stamp set to ONE lucky follower who leaves me a comment below and also on my POST #212, I will announce a random winner this Monday Oct. 24th!!
