Too cute to spook!

Now i'll be the first to admit that I don't make many Halloween cards but when I do I love the Boo to you set from My minds eye its just perfect for cute Halloween makes....... 
which is just the ticket for this weeks challenge over at Allsorts from the lovely Debs!
Too cute to Spook!

I used the cute ghost from the chipboard sheet and the reverse of witching webs paper (boo) and the reverse of spooky stripes (polka dot) some chipboard letters which I smothered in diamond stickles and a few of the lime green stars also from the chipboard sheet.

such a cutie pie!

twit twoo! and Grand Final!

Good morning well the nights are drawing in and its getting decidedly difficult to get up in the cold and dark but I love Autumn!!!!!!!!
I love the crisp sunny afternoons and the warm colours on the trees and the fact that you can wrap up warm and snug!

This brings me nicely to my card for Allsorts this week  the challenge from Our lovely Jo who is also sponsoring this challenge too is 
Autumn Leaves and Trees
we are also sponsored by the lovely Sally-Ann over at Digistamp Boutique and this week I have used the lovely Oliver whooo youuu (sorry couldn't resist) can find HERE
Now I have used my fav papers from Debbie Mumm they are amazing for this time of year the colours are so rich! Simple layout to show off that fab image hope you like

Now the Grand final bit of the title is because Jack will be setting of soon for Old Trafford with the 50 or so other children being looked after by Castleford tigers who are taking them to be part of the pre-game entertainment for the Rugby Grand Final... so if you happen to see any of the pre-game goings on he will be part of the team of children holding a giant Huddersfield shirt lol! hope he has a fab day!! Ian and I however are not going as its kids and Claws (Cas Tigers dance troop) only so we will sadly just have to meet with friends for lunch and then watch it in the pub ;)

Quick and easy crafty Storage !!!!

If your in need for some storage for those hard to store items like your bottles of stickles and tiny embelishments then I have the perfect solution 

3M Command have brought out some amazing clear storage trays that stick! yes stick! to the wall with specially designed tape which is easily removable..

now my craftroom walls are not flat and have a heavy matt finish but that hasn't deterred the trays from staying there firmly! I was really pleased how well and easily they went up and I'm definitely going to buy the phone holder one as I can never find my phone under all the piles of paper and tape...

Now the Large caddy on the left can hold up to 4lbs and the smaller caddy can hold up to 2lbs
I can see these being perfect also on the back of pantry doors for spices or inside kitchen cupboards for packets, what about on the inside of wardrobe doors teamed with a mirror  for makeup and nail varnish!

I feel much more organised already!
