About Me

My photo
I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Happy Sunday! John was taken the boys to his parents so I can get some work done. I have to finish editing my next chapter by tomorrow so I better get crackin'. Before I got down to serious work I wanted to share my Boo box with you. It was very easy to put together. I do suggest that you don't try to emboss once you have already adhered the letter down, very messy. LOL! I took a piece of basic black cardstock ( 91/4 by 4 1/4) and scored it at 4 inches from both ends. I used my 1 1/4 circle punch to make the o's. The stamp set is Eat, Drink & Be Scary which can be found in the Holiday Mini. You can purchase this set Oct. 1. So if you are a fan of online ordering you can do it that way or just give me a call. Anyway back to the project. I used my markers to just color the spiders for the scallop border and I also colored the spider and pumpkin with the markers. I used elastic thread to attach the spider and pumpkin to the inside of the box. If I have totally confused you or if you have any questions please let me know. Thanks, Enjoy. Sarah
