Spooky Blog Hop!

Welcome to your 8th stop on the Paper Secrets Spooky Blog Haunt.


Here is what I have to share with you today!  My "Countdown to Candy." These are made out of 3.5" x 3.5" blocks on top of a 7"x4" board. Letters cut with my Cricut!  Everything finished off with Glimmer Mist.


And my shelf where the blocks are displayed. There are my Boo blocks and my Bo Bunny Whooligans banner. That banner was made using my Scrapbook Daisies October kit.

I love all my little projects and couldn't pick just one. I hope you are inspired to create something of your own for this holiday!

Remember to leave a comment on all 31 blog posts for your chance to win 1 of the 3 treats Paper Secrets is giving away.
