...and just in time for those last minute Halloween tricks....uh, I mean treats!

Come on by!

Don't forget our Halloween festivities on Saturday, October 31st from noon until 4 pm. We'll be taking your picture with your little goblins, printing on the spot, and you can do our creepy make 'n take and take it right home with you! The price on the make 'n take is only a goulish $5.

Consider creating this 12x12 double layout to preserve those wonderful memories. This layout is a feature class at Anthologies and you may create it on any of our Creative Buffet dates (see calendar at

You've been Boo'd!!

What a great time we had at our October Scrapstasher's meeitngs! Thanks to all who attended! It was so much fun creating our "You've been Boo'd" treat containers together! If you would like to know more about Scrapstasher's and how to become a part of this creative group, please visit the website at or contact the store at (817) 282-2622.
We used cute papers, ric rac, and a "boo"tiful felt spider (a die cut at Anthologies) to alter Crystal Light containers...Pringles containers work great too! The container will be filled with treats and the "You've been Boo'd" poem with instructions on how to keep the Boo'd chain going. I posted the poem below for you.
"You've Been Boo'd"
The air is cool the season fall
Soon Halloween will come to all
The spooks are after things to do
In fact, a spook brought this to you
"BOO" is a shield from the witching hour
Just hang it up and watch its power
On your front door is where it works
It wards off spooks and scary jerks
The treats that came with crypted note
Are yours to keep, enjoy them both
The power comes when friends like you
Will copy this and make it two
Then others here among our friends
Will give warm fuzzies that do not end
We'll all have smiles upon our face
No one will know who "BOO'ed" whose place
Just two short days to work your spell
Or a big zap will strike your tail
And don't forget a nifty treat,
Like something cute or something sweet
Please join the fun, let's really hear it
And spread some "BOO's" and Halloween spirit.

To keep the Boo’d chain going…
1. Enjoy your treat.
2. Within 2 days, fill the container with special treats
3. Secretly deliver to 2 neighbors/friends
Happy Haunting to ALL!
Tracy :)
