Bring on the Cooler Weather!!

I am starting to get really excited for fall. The weather has finally broken here today and it is gorgeous and sunny at about 69 degrees. It is so pleasant! Makes me think of football, yummy soups, pumpkins, hayrides. So, with that in mind, I decided to play today with Celebrate the Occassion (Challenge #28). I haven't played much with this cart and am excited to give it a go. I have some halloween pages to scrapbook and am planning on using this cart as well as Mini Monsters. I really need to get busy with my pages:)

I think she is really fun and spooky looking at the same time. It was tricky because she was pretty tiny. Overall she went together pretty easy. I would say the eyes were a little difficult. I had laid her out on my gypsy and almost missed a layer. I love my gypsy but sometimes when I am working with unfamiliar carts I still pull my books out to make sure I don't foget anything.  I wanted the stamp to be subtle so I didn't press really hard.

Recipe:
Bride of Frankenstein - height 2.22 " Happy Hauntings, Gypsy Cricut
Frame - height 2.88" Create a Critter
Papers - Blue and green  - Bazzill scraps, pattern (sorry don't remember as it is also a scrap),
