Octoberfest Blog Hop - Day 1

Isn't October wonderful! Crisp apples picked fresh from the tree, warm apple cider to warm your tummy on a frosty night, leaves of gold, red, brown fluttering to the ground. October is a wonderful time of year and this hop is a celebration of October and all the colors, smells, sights and sounds it has to offer. Hop along with our Krazy Crafting Crew as they show you their take on October and what it is for them.

If you happen to stumble upon this hop you can begin hopping at our host blog for this month: Jearise of Lorby's World.   She has a special give away for you on her blog. If you came from Jamie's blog you are on the right track.

We also have a special sponser by Scrapbook Stamp Society.


They would love to reward one special blog visitor with a prize from their store. To be qualified for their drawing, please comment on all participating blogs and let them know you have.

You can receive extra entries for following them on Facebook at ( and for commenting on the Scrapbook Stamp Society blog (

Now let's begin our hop...

I decided to make Picture Frame Mats for the kiddos so they can put pictures of themselves in their Halloween Costumes in them. 

Here I have one in the frame and one out of the frame.  I used cardboard to cut the base and covered it with scrapbook paper.  The opening in the center is 4 x 6 inches.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another great Octoberfest project.

Thank you for stopping by today and please continue on to Lisa's blog
