Trick or Treat

So I challenge myself to use items I had cut, punched,
colored, stamped and embossed last year 
that I didn't use 
feeling very inspired to look at all those leftovers 
in a different way.
I was watching a video by Nichol Magouirk
she was making the cutest Halloween card and said how much
she like to make "Scene Cards"
it was like a giant light bulb went off....
and I realized that out of all the cards I create I like 
my scene cards the best...

 this weekend I did make a stop
at AC Moore they had a 55% off coupon
I had a $10 reward so I treated myself to an 
Ott Light really happy with the way it helps to
make my pictures look better.

Back to work tomorrow wishing I had another day or
two to create.....

Happy Crafting Everyone
