Spook-tacular Message Board Highlights!

I have been waiting all month for this day, the day where I get share with you one of our new features-- our message board highlights. Some of you have already found our message board. Great, we love having you there. But, for those of you who haven't found us yet you have to come on by. Just "click" on the "MESSAGE BOARD" script on the top of the right side bar, create a free account, and start having some fun with us. You can ask questions of the staff; jump in daily on our scrapbooking question of the day; share layouts, cards, and altered projects in our galleries; check out some great tutorials we've found around the web, participate in our message board challenges; or even join in on some fun swaps!

Some upcoming events happening on our Message Board:
Christmas Card Swap Sign-Up (deadline November 1st)
One Hour Layout Contest Saturday, November 13th, 8pm EST for USA/Canada, and guess what? You international followers can even join in on this one, but you'll have to check out how to on the message board!
Secret Santa Sister Swap Sign-Up (deadline November 14th)

We always welcome new projects you have created to add to our gallery. We love inspiration!  And don't worry - there are complete "how to post pictures/images " instructions in each gallery for your convenience.

Here are my favorite projects from our message board:

I just loved this little bracelet of candy corn Amanda created! You get the fun and yummies all in one! Amanda even created a video on how she created these--just click on her name and you can check it out!

All four project by Lori Apgar

Lori has been a very busy lady creating with her Gypsy and sharing with us her new creations. I just adore those t-shirts she creates using freezer paper and fabric paint!

Sherri is a former designer of Practical Scrappers who stops by often to share with us her new creations. Isn't this "Z" card just "Boo"-tiful?

Now the rest of these projects aren't "Spook"-tacular, but they are spectacular creations that I could not leave out from this showcase of highlights:


What an amazing quilt, huh! Cheryl is the mom of Christine, our Practical Scrappers Owner, who created this beautiful quilt for her newest grandson, Cooper. She even used her Cricut to create the train to match Cooper's bedroom!

Jessi, another former Design team member, found her missing paper and just couldn't wait to share this project with us as soon as she completed it!

Pia is one of sketch designers for Practical Scrappers who is just as fabulous at creating layouts as she is sketches. I just love the white space in this layout!

Lisa, another former designer, created this beautiful thank you card. What an amazing job she did coloring this image and that stitching is just perfect!

We hope you enjoyed our highlighted projects from our message board. Please don't forget to stop by and share your projects with us there. You never know, maybe your project will be in next month's message board highlights! Leave us a comment here and let us know what you think of the message board or if you have a suggestion for something you'd like to see. We love feedback and are always looking for ways to improve. Thanks for stopping in!
