For my project, I'm featuring the Fall-O-Ween Stamp Set.

Fall-O-Ween benefits "Adopt a Classroom"
Last year my family went to Walt Disney World just before Halloween, and the decorations around the Magic Kingdom were so beautiful.  I created this scrapbook layout to showcase the pictures we took.

I used the Too Cute to Spook stamp on a Mickey Mouse cut in the upper right corner of this layout.

I cut Minnie's dress out of an orange polka dot paper, and her bow and shoes are from an orange glitter paper.  Even Minnie likes her bling!

If you liked this project, be sure to come back on November 19th and 20th when I will be hosting, along with my good friend Melissa, another Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Before you go I would like to offer you a chance to win a prize of a $25 Gift Certificate to Custom Crops!

Those of you that know me know that my family created the website and that I like to have everyone play a game with in order to enter to win prizes.  Since my layout had a pumpkin in it, let's go to MyCutSearch and search the word


and then send me an email by clicking here or by using the Contact Us Page at telling me how many Cricut handbook pages came up in the search for the word pumpkin.  The number will be in the lower left corner of the first preview page.

Good luck and thanks for playing!  The winner will be announced here on Monday, October 24th.
