Monster Mash Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Monster Mash Blog Hop, brought to you by the design teams of Made Especially For You and Exploring Cricut!

Today the design teams of Made Especially For You and Exploring Cricut have teamed up to share with you all sorts of spooktacular monster-themed projects to help get your crafty gears turning for all those upcoming Halloween projects!

If you've come from Diana's blog, you're in the right place! If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Ashley at Made Especially For You.

For my project, I created some quick and easy ghost cards/tags.  These are so easy that you could definitely do them with non-scrappers or a halloween project with the kids :)

First up ... a ghostly gift tag!

Next up ... a ghostly card!

It is hard to see, but I've actually layered 2 ghosts on top of each other ... this way when I pop the head up for dimension, there is a white shadow effect behind!

We also have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes to those who comment on every stop of the hop!
