Ghoultide Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ghoultide Blog Hop!! If this is your first stop on the hop, click here to get back to the beginning at Angela’s blog (don’t worry, you’ll end up back here eventually!) 








I love these little guys!! I’ve been mildly obsessed with owls for the last few years (I’d like to think that I was the beginning of the current owl trend). I’ve posted before about my daughter’s first birthday party with an owl theme and my little collection at home is growing.
I’m usually not one to buy punches. As a scrapbooker, first and foremost, a single image at a specific size gets a bit repetitive throughout an entire scrapbook, and I can’t justify spending the money on a punch when my Cricut is so much more flexible.

The exception is this:

Stampin' Up! Owl Punch


I love this thing.

When I first got it, everyone in the office knew it, because everyone got two or three little owls to hang around their area (I mean, since I love owls so much, they must, too, right??)

I’ve been looking for more ways to utilize it, and this seemed like a perfect opportunity to punch away!













These were so fun to make. It was like playing dress up with my favorite doll and almost as fun as torturing a poor little dog with baby clothes and a hair bow. 
The possibilities, and themes, are endless for these little guys! Not only Halloween, but Christmas, Easter, President’s Day (could you imagine these things on Mt. Rushmore?!)

Here's your chance to win!! Follow my blog and leave me a comment on this post of which H-owl-o-ween tag is your favorite! Three of you will each be getting two of these little lovelies just in time for your October decorating. I'll be using Random.org to choose the winners, and they'll be announced here on Monday, October 3rd, so be sure to stop back!!


Hope you enjoyed my project, and now you’re off to see what your nineteenth stop (Debbie Wilson) created (I’m sure it’s amazing!!).



Happy H-owl-o-ween!!
