INSPIRE US!! Blog Hop at Lovebug Scrapbooking!


Welcome to Lovebug Scrapbooking's "INSPIRE US!" blog hop!! Our blog hops NORMALLY take place on the last Saturday of every month. This month we decided to go a week earlier, so you could get some Halloween inspiration before the holiday :-) Thanks so much for joining us!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to Lovebug Scrapbooking and start the Hop. You won't want to miss all the inspiration from our members....... or the prizes :-)

Our theme for this month is HALLOWEEN.


As a family, we don't celebrate Halloween, but I had a friend ask me to make some treat bags for her. These little bags take little time to make, and I must say, with the new Bo Bunny
"Whoo-Ligans Monsters" paper, they look kinda cute :-)


Very easy to make! I picked up a package of small paper bags at Wal-Mart. On this sheet of pp, there are 12 little "monsters" so you can finish 12 treat bags. I also used some raffia-type ribbon and some orange ribbon. Add in a couple of buttons and you're done!

I matted the monster card on some orange paper first, and distressed and inked the edges.


Here's the finished product!



This blog hop will run from today, October 23rd until October 25th. We will be drawing for a winner on October 26th on the Lovebug blog.
In addition, I will be drawing for a copy of Scrapbooking & Beyond - Fall 2010 issue -- from all the comments on my blog :-)

Follow along in our blog hop! Your next stop is Tanya S.

We don't celebrate Hallowe'en either, but it's nice to see a project that can be adapted to all sorts of occasions: birthdays, Christmas, Easter, end-of-school parties, etc. Thanks for sharing!
