A Happy *Bazzill* Halloween!!

Hi all and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

I have to tell you - Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I love the colors, the fall air, the pumpkins, the costumes, everything. And it makes sense that it would be my favorite holiday to scrapbook about, too! Unfortunately I haven't had much of a chance do that lately since it's been a couple of years since BasicGrey's Eerie line (hint hint!) so I was really excited when Bazzill asked if they could send their new Spooky & Kooky line for me to play around with... and in true Bazzill fashion to GIVE AWAY!

I really loved the pure colors and fun, quirky designs in this line and quickly created a few layouts with it. By far my favorite product though were these fantastic stitched pleated borders! I fell in love with them. They are amazing and add so much texture to the page.

This is my silly middlest and his pumpkin last year. He was so excited to carve his own completely for the first time (if you couldn't tell)!
Photobucket
Supplies: Bazzill Basics PP, cardstock, stickers, buttons; BasicGrey glazed brads and brads; Doodlebug alpha stickers; Uni-ball pen; Fiskars border punch; EK Success circle cutter


And the youngest with his pumpkin. He's a traditionalist (if you couldn't tell)! ;)

Supplies: Bazzill Basics PP, cardstock, stickers, buttons; BasicGrey glazed brads; Doodlebug alpha stickers; Uni-ball pen; Pentel pen; Fiskars border punch & star punch; Jillibean Soup twine (based on a sketch by Becky Fleck @ Pagemaps)


And I couldn't leave out the oldest. Note the "cool" sports themed pumpkin. No kiddie stuff for this boy :P

So now here's what this all means for YOU! The folks at Bazzill are very kind and generous and have sent one extra of everything to giveaway. Check it out! So cool, right?! So here's what you have to do to get entered to win these goodies of your very own: Simply leave a comment here before midnight (eastern) tonight letting me know of your Halloween plans and you're golden! I'll choose a winner on my birthday (I just had to throw that in there - Nov. 2nd).

Hanging with my best "ghoul" friends tonight at their haunted :"Howl-o-ween" bash". Oh yeah, the kiddies will be there too. Daughter is dressing up as a Dark Angel and son is Darth Vader. Hmmm. Wonder what that means...I sense a theme. Happy early B-day and Happy Halloween!

Kelly Swosinski said...

What a great prize. To stay in the spirit I think my night will consist of catching up on old episodes of Vampire Diaries as most of the Halloween activities around here happened over the weekend:)

Melissa S said...

Love your layouts and all the bright colours. Plan on watching some spooky movies tonight with the hubby. Happy Halloween and Happy early birthday!! :)

Margie said...

Awesome Halloween pages-so much fun!!

Kelly Massman said...

Great pages! I wish my son would carve pumpkins with us still, but he is 17 and way too cool for that... Anyway, we will be passing out treats tonight!!! Thanks for a chance to win!

Tessa Wise said...

Cute layouts! We made the whole weekend one big party this year and we are ending it with trick or treating tonight- it has been so much fun!
Thanks for the inspiration!

Anonymous said...

Ohh nice layouts! My plans are to hand out candy and my hubby will take our 6 year old around our crescent. I am 8.5 months pregnant and don't think I would be able to walk around the crescent, getting up to answer the door every two minutes will be a challenge in itself! Happy Halloween and Happy Birthday Kelly! (staceyhunter@sasktel.net)

Jennifer said...

Super cute! We don't get many trick or treaters in our condo, so we're headed to my parents house for dinner and to check out the cute costumes. :)

ScrappinMamaOf3Boys said...

What adorable boys you have!!! I have 3 boys too and love it. Great pages too-LOVE that set!!
We just do usual stuff for Halloween-dress up and go trick-or-treating. My kids love it because it's the only night I allow them pop after supper!
Happy Early birthday!!

Gorgeous pages with this vibrant colour collection from Bazzil. The green, yellow and orange are great colours together.

Amy Nelson said...

Love your layouts!!! Tonight my son (who is 5 months old) and I are going to be handing out candy to the monsters and ghosts who come by trick-or-treating. He was born 12 weeks early and still tires really easy, so I won't be taking him out this year. The Halloween fun will come to us! And since we live in a small town and won't be too busy handing out treats, I'll be scrapping in between the visits since these layouts have inspired me to create my own Halloween pages.

Frances said...

Happy Halloween to all!
This prize pack looks amazing to me, love to
create some great pages with it,yours are a great inspiration, Thanks for the chance to win. hugs, Frances.

Leslie Kiley said...

Trick or Treat! This year is the first year in a long time where I have lived that the neighborhood has trick or treaters. I am so excited to see all the cute little goblins and ghosts! Have a happy early birthday!

Amanda said...

I love the ruffled paper borders! The leaves that come with the kit are perfect!

Jennifer Cowan said...

We are headed out by car to do some trick or treating to family members. We live in the country so we don't "do" traditional trick or treating.

Have a Happy Bday!!!!

Diane said...

Wow...really cool layout...so many gorgeous details!! Going to my sisters tonight for Halloween...she is making dinner for all the little Goblins before tirck or treating begins...so fun!!

marilyn secor said...

We will be knocking on the spookiest houses around our neighborhood. I would love to scrap our photos with this great collection.

sulew said...

Trick or treating with my son and his best friend`s family! Lots of fun!

Mary said...

Great ideas. Can't wait to scrap this year's pictures. Handing out candy at the kids' house while they take their little one around their new neighborhood.

Emilie said...

Girl! You are a scrapbooking GENIUS! I adore these layouts! You're amazing.

Going out with my son for the first time - I think I'm more excited than he is ;) WOW those paper pumpkins are a must have! I love this collection - so happy :)

Donna O'Bryan said...

I'll be going to my daughter's house to trick or treat with the grandkids.
Good times!

Krysta said...

I love the patterns and colours! This year, I'll be staying at home with our baby and handing out the candy. I think this is my favourite, as I get to see all the other kids' cute costumes. They're so adorable!

Pamela W said...

Fantastic pages! Love all the bright colors! I've got these layouts "book marked" for inspiration!

It will be a crazy busy day: helping with Halloween Party at school, an after school Halloween Party, and then painting up the kids faces to send them out for Halloween--my daughter is Fiona (from Shrek--her face needs to be green and pretty) and my son is a skeleton (black, white, and scary face paint), then I will answer the door for the trick-or-treaters and it is my husband's turn to take the kids out trick-or-treating with their friends!

I hope to get some great costume photos tonight to put with this fun line of paper!

johorst said...

Sooo much fun.Happy Early b-day!! My son went to school as a tourist and my daughter was a huge tube of sweettrts. It was so much fun making her costume. Can't wait to scrap it too:)

Anna said...

Beautiful work as usual :)
You always amaze me with your talent!! I'm taking my Little Mermaid out for trick or treating tonight after her party at school! They were lucky enough to be able to dress up and have a parade! Yah! I'm just sad I'm missing it :(
Thanks for the chance for a wonderful prize!!

ConnieC said...

I guess I'll hand out candy. We don't get a large crowd, so it shouldn't be very hard.

Nicole said...

WOW! Thank you so much for the chance to win this amazing giveaway! Tonight, my fiance and i will be staying home giving away treats to the little ones in our street. We're new house owners so it will be our first time treating the kids in our neighborhood... and we heard that there will be a BUNCH! Can't wait!!!

Lisa P said...

Very cool! What a generous thing for Bazill to do. Looking forward to seeing if I am lucky enough to win. This is the first year my kids are too old to trick or treat so it will be a rather laid back evening at our home. I'm actually very sad... why do they have to grow up???

Romy said...

Halloween is my favorite too!! We celebrated all weekend, back to business today! Thanks for a chance to win.

Kristen said...

Tonight I'm trick or treating with my three boys...in costume at their request. This year I made a quick poodle skirt for a 50s outfit. I've had to explain to them (ages 10, 7 and 4) several times what I am. LOL

Anonymous said...

I no longer need to go out trick or treating so I am enjoying passing candy to the little ones, but so far, it's been slow. It won't be good if we have too much left! Gorgeous layouts, as always. I like the non-scary but not too cutesy look of this line! Jeannine H

brenda said...

Love your layouts! I'm planning to take my 10 year old daughter trick or treating and then afterwards I'm hoping to do a bit of scrapbooking while she helps her dad scare the older kids!

My Halloween is always a bit strange as it's also my anniversary. Yup, we were married on Halloween! We weren't in costume, but the justice of the peace and all the people who worked in the court house sure were. I have some truly out-of-the-ordinary wedding pics! Tonight we headed out for dinner, and then answering the door for the kiddos who come calling.

Emma said...

Movies with my son and husband and lots of sweets :)

Happy early birthday. My plans changed and some stayed the same. First my friend came with her daughters and went t & t'ing with the dads while we stayed in and chatted. We were then going to celebrate Samhein (pagan new year tonight) but the kids were all so tired and so were we .. so we are going to do it in a bit with speaker phone. Thanks for the chance to win.

thanks for the chance to win another great treat

Jessica Strider said...

I ended up working Halloween, but my husband got to stay home and hand out candies. I did some craft shopping in the morning (laces and ribbons, papers, etc.) and would have preferred to be at home making new cards.

This is a beautiful set of craft items from Bazzill. The colours are very vibrant and the accents are awesome.

Thanks for hosting a giveaway.

Dana D. said...

The layouts are terrific. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway.

Terri said...

Our kids are all grown so we get our Halloween excitement from handing out candy. We had a nice turnout and even dressed our little mini schnauzer as a lady bug because she wanted to greet all the kids when they came to the door. Love the Bazzill flowers and autumn leaves. Please thank them for the give-away.

Julie Warner said...

Happy Birthday Kelly. I loved those pages too. They really captured the feel of the whole pumpkin carving event. Thanks for showing us how they turned out.

Linda L said...

Oh my gosh, 3 brilliant layouts Kelly. Love the design on each, the fact they showcase a few photos of each son and the great coordinating embellies - and your pleated strips look awesome. How fantastic is the Advent Calendar too...I don't have a Silhouette but that will be a heap of fun for those who do. Cheers!

Angie said...

A truly happy birthday wish to you!!! You will always be my absolute favorite scrapper and the halloween layouts of each of your boys clearly demonstrate why! Your talent never ceases to amaze me. TFS!
