Fall / Halloween Hop & My Memories Review

Hello Friends and Fellow Hoppers,
Thanks you so much for taking the time to check out my posting today.  Hope you are having fun on the Fall/Halloween Blog Hop.  If you have come from Tanya's blog, you are on the right path. If you just happened upon the hop today, be sure to start from the beginning at Nicolette blog. (she also has the entire lineup - in case you get lost along the way)

Lets give a great big Thank you to Nicholette for organizing this hop, wow what a fantastic job she did!

Isn't that project by Tanya Fantastic?

I have a few fun *quick* crafty projects for you today.

I recycled some 'bottles' that I just loved, of course I had to twist my hubby's arm to finish off the contents. :)

Ok, I know this is much more appropriate for the 'adult' Halloween celebration.  But I need Decor for Halloween.
Super simple and quick once you decide on the label to use.

I used Echo Park - Apothecary Emporium "Labels" for both of these.
along with Mandarin Twinery Twine and Charcoal Twinery Twine

I also use the We R Memory Distressing Heart Tool.  I really like how the blade retracks on this little handy tool.

And inked the edges with my favorite ink, StazOn by Tsukineko Love this stuff.

Here is an up close of the other two little projects.

This idea came from SugarGems Kit, I just tweeked it a little.
The sentiment on this cute little treat is from My Thoughts Exactly.  Love it!
From the Ghostly Greetings set.  So fun!  The has a great deal on a Halloween Bundle right now.

Inside is a little bit of YUM!!

My Memories recently approached me to review their digital scrapbook software and to give one away to one of my followers too! Stay tuned to the end of the post for details on how to win :)

I printed both of these images from embellishments in a paper pack on My Memories.  Then I printed this sentiment on my paper and placed inside the card.

Isn't that fun!  And simple and QUICK!!
If you are not a digital scrapper, stick around.  As you can see, I am not typically either.
I had never tried Digital Scrapbooking before My MemoriesDigital Scrapbooking didn't seem crafty to me.
  IT IS SO much fun. 
I love to see results and you can breeze through several layouts in just minutes.

Now that you have seen the few things that I put together, go visit My Memories Suite and check it out for yourself. You won't be disappointed.  Once you have peeked around the paper packs they offer, come back here and tell me which one is your favorite, to be eligible to win this software for yourself!
