October already!

Hi everyone, I can't believe October is upon us... and boy the weather is telling us so. I love this time of year, fall decorations and fall food and little trick or treaters at our doorstep! October is going to be great month here at AllyScraps too. We are going to focus on Halloween. Halloween cards, Halloween layouts, Halloween projects and a Halloween technique or two. Of course I couldn't do all these projects on my own, so I've enlisted some fabulous help! We have two awesome guest designers with us here at AllyScraps this month. Our first special guest is Jana Eubank. We've been lucky enough to have Jana here with us at AllyScraps before, and we're so excited that she's agreed to come back again this month. She's always such an inspiration and such a sweetie too. Here's a little about Jana.

I love scrapbooking! It is my one-and-only crafty hobby and my passion. I enjoy the creative outlet it gives me, but I also love taking the time to reflect on family memories and seeing my kids' eyes light up as they look through our family albums. I have been scrapbooking for about 12 years in one form or another. I mostly create pages, but I also enjoy creating the occasional card or altered project. My scrapbooking style is eclectic with clean lines, with a little shabbiness thrown in. If I'm not scrapbooking, I'm perusing interior design magazines, hanging out at scrapbook message boards and galleries, or celebrating life with my family. I'm hopelessly addicted to chocolate, Diet Coke and Peach Fresca. My favorite comfort food is mashed potatoes with lots of butter and salt & pepper. I love to listen to Pandora radio to help me get in a creative mood while I scrap. If you'd like to see more of my work stop by and visit me on my blog I am a stay-at-home mom to 3 daughters and 1 son and have been married to my best friend, Kevin, for 12 years. We live in Bountiful, Utah. I am so excited to be here at Ally Scraps this month! Thank you so much for having me!

Want to see what Jana made for our blog this week?? I couldn't believe this layout when I saw it. It's PERFECT, the layering, the colors and the amazing details. WOW!

It made me want to go right out and buy the papers from the Fancy Pants Trick or Treat Collection, which is the paper line that Jana used for this project. She also had fun with American Crafts thickers, she used the cinnamon foil thickers in robins egg and the nutmeg thickers in spinach.

Thanks so much Jana for your continued inspiration! We can't wait to see your next project. Hey by the way, don't miss the blog on Wednesday, as we'll announce our other wonderful guest designer and look for posts from me on Fridays too. Also coming up this month, is a special SKETCH designed by Jana and a giveaway based on that sketch. So much to look forward to! Enjoy your weekend, thanks for stopping by!
