What I LOVE About Fall/Halloween Blog Hop ~ Day 1

Welcome to the What I Love About Fall/Halloween Blog Hop. This hop is scheduled from Oct. 7 at 8:00am through Oct. 8 at 11:00pm CST.

If you just happened to drop by my blog today, you can start at the beginning with Lisa's Blog. If you just came from Vicki's Blog, then you are in the right spot!

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great Grand Prize for this hop.

The hop is a 2 day hop so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup twice. Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops. Please come back both days to see great projects.

For the hop I have created this picture frame from some scraps I had left of Echo Park Apothecary Emporium. I created a Paper Bag Album using the 6" x 6" paper pad that you can see HERE. So I had a lot of odd shaped scraps and I decided that I would make a patchwork frame by Mod Podge-ing them to my frame. I painted the edges with black acrylic paint before I adhered all my pieces. Then I inked around the edges of the whole frame to distress it a bit. Finally I added my floral embellishment because things just don't feel "finished" to me without flowers, buttons and/or ribbon!

Here is the complete lineup:

To be eligible for the grand prize, you must visit each blog and leave a comment at each stop. Also if you have a Facebook account, please go "Like" Scrapping With Lisa"s Facebook Page HERE. Besides the Grand Prize that Lisa mentioned at the beginning of the hop you can also win a fun Goodie Bag on my page to! Make sure you leave me a comment both days and I will choose one winner each day!

Your next stop is Suzanne's Blog! Go see what awesome project she has in store for you after you leave your comment here!

Have a great day and please stop back tomorrow for another great project!
