Here is some inspiration from our awesome DT to get you started...

We welcome this week's Guest Designer,
a sweet gal and great friend, 

I am Kim aka Me-Ma Kim in the blog world. I live in Mid-Missouri and am a Daughter, Sister, Wife and Mother. BUT, my fave thing is being a Me-Ma to 4 FABULOUS Grandkids, who are the subjects of most of my layouts. I have been scrapbooking for almost 15 years now. My first scrapbook was for my Daughter’s 16th birthday and to look at it now, I just have to laugh at all the stickers!! I am just THRILLED to be a Guest DT for The Paper Variety this week.
Thanks BUNCHES Abby and Suzanne for giving me this opportunity.
What a super cute project, Kim!! Love your patterns and diecuts, and especially your fun sentiment!
Thanks so much for joining our team this week :)

 Check out Team A's spooky cute Halloween projects!
Eat Crow Halloween card. A digi stamp colored with colored pencils.

We don't celebrate Halloween in Australia i decided to make an easy card.
Halloween is such a fun holiday to scrapbook.  I always get to make fun kooky (not to say Spooky) cards for my nieces, and this year, i decided to make candy-filled cards using recycled packaging and fun papers and embellishments from the Funtoolas October kit (where i am a featured guest this month).  Have a happy and safe Halloween everyone!!!

I love Halloween!! I made this card front from acetate to make the ghost appear like he's flying around haunting the graveyard ;)

I went through all my spooky ghosts, cute pumpkins and creepy spiders.. but somethin just told me to go with a nice card with traditional colors. Plain and simple and I like it :)
