To be eligible for the grand prize, you must visit each blog and leave a comment. You also MUST visit Lisa's blog and leave a comment on Lisa's blog for the day and also become a follower at "Scrapping With Lisa" and her facebook page:  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Scrapping-with-Lisa/130882060268842 .   Please let her know if you don't do facebook and she won't count that against you for the blog candy. Now for the blog candy, Lisa has a great grab bag full of goodies.

Here is my project for today:  Sorry for some of the blurry pics,  I used my camera on my phone.  Next time I'll use my camera...







I was in a die cut swap and Here was the first project I did.  Supplies:  Mini Monsters cartridge, printed paper, black cardstock, google eyes, red stickles and adhesive.   The spider on the mini monster cartridge has a face on it.  I didn't want my cricut to cut out the face so I used a feature on my gypsy to hide the face before cutting the spider.

                                                                       

The spider was cut at 4" with the printed paper first, then with the black cardstock. 
Next I cut the legs off of the printed paper, and stuck the printed oval onto the black spider cut out.
Last I decorated the spiders with googly eyes and a red stickled mouth.  I think they turned out pretty cute! Thanks for stopping by my blog!


 Now on to your next stop!
Have a great day and please stop back tomorrow for another great project!
