I'm already hearing the ideas flowing..."Mom! I want to be a princess, no a skunk, no how about a super hero?"

The excitement begins the first of October, as my kids start seeing the Halloween decorations and costumes in the store. It seems as if finding the perfect costume becomes a month long task. All for that one night when they can run around knocking at the neighbors door screaming "Trick or Treat!".

Even though the decisions can turn into a chaos for us moms, we can have our fun too! Begin preparing pages in advance so when the spooks and goblins come a knocking, you will have your camera ready and pages waiting.

Over the next couple of weeks I will be sharing some exciting Halloween layouts for you, from carving the pumpkin to counting the loot! You will find plenty of ideas so come back often.

Look for specials on sale this week until October 12th, all Halloween files are on sale at 40% off. So start up your machines, grab some paper and pull out the glue gun for some fabulous Halloween treats!I am working on new links to make it easier to access my Halloween and fall files so keep an eye out for that over the next couple of days.

How about earning $15.00 worth of die-cuts? Email me any Halloween or fall layout using my die-cuts, if you're layout is chosen I will show case it on my blog and you get to pick your own files. Email layouts to carries_creations@paperthreads.com with Halloween or Fall layout in the subject. Please tell me what file and file number, paper, ribbon, embellishments that you used. Also include the title of your layout along with any description you would like posted.

Pumpkin carving

It's one of our favorite Halloween activities!
