One more thing to celebrate October - I am offering $10 off ANY Cricut bundle purchased from me from now until October 15th.  Since this is a personal sale I am offering you must purchase this directly from me and here is how:

1. Email me at -
2. Indicate which bundle you would like ($10 off each bundle so you can buy all three and save $30 if you would like).  
3. Provide me with your email address. 

With those 3 things I will send you a PayPal invoice.  When I receive your payment by Oct 15th or sooner your Cricut bundle will be ordered.  Any one who purchases the Cricut bundle in this way will also be entered to win the Sweet Life stamp set.

Damask Divas October Blog Hop - Laughing Lola

If you came from Tracey Caudle"s blog then you are in the right place.  If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog Damask Divas Blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

Hi all!  I’m so psyched it is one of my favorite times of year.  Halloween time!  :)  So for my Laughing Lola creation I made an 8x8 2 page layout.  I hope you find it to be spooktacular!!!  ;)  

The supplies I used include:

Cricut Pumpkin Carvings Cartridge
Monster Google Eyes from Hobby Lobby

First I cut all my paper and cricut designs.  All the cricut designs are cut at 2 and 1/2 inches.  After that I stamped my images, assembled, and aheared everything.  That easy!

Well I hope you enjoyed my festive Halloween layout!  I wish everyone a Happy Halloween!!!

The next blog on the list is Hilary Harris's blog.
Hope you have a great time on our hop and checking out all the creations using Laughing Lola. If you get lost, just hop on over to Damask Divas Blog for the complete list.
XOXO Happy crafting!
