"I’m kicking myself for not signing up for more of Donna Downey’s classes. Donna’s dynamic personality and motivating teaching style made the paint.watercolor.doodle class so much fun (and just what I needed after a stressful week at work.) I LOVED that she didn’t force you to do everything “her way” but encouraged all of us Type A’s to move outside our comfort zone…not to mention embracing (or covering) our mistakes. Although she has less than an hour between classes, she spent time taking pictures, signing books and even let me interrupt her lunch to sign my backpack…which I love.
Thanks for hosting this fabulous series of classes,

Mini Blackboard album by Cosmo Cricket (so fun to work with!) Patterned paper, stickers, rub-ons, and Chipboard pieces by Heidi Grace Designs- some are from this years Halloween line and some are from last years. Card stock is by Bazzill and the ribbon is a hodgepodge I got at the store. I also used a White Uniball Signo marker to doodle around in some areas.
Anyways, hope you are all having as much fun preparing for Halloween as I am!

There are four new books of teen themed MiniMarks rub ons, including one font book, one phrase book, and two different accents books. They will add the perfect finishing touch to every project!

Julie will be teaching this box, too. Here are her instructions:
If you'd like to make a Keep Out! Box of your own, here's what to do:
1. Cover lid of box. The top piece is 2" x 4.5". The Sides are 4.5" 1". After you adhere the paper, tie with matching ribbon.
2. Cover body of box. The side pieces measure 5.5" x 1.75". The front and back measure 5.5" x 4.5". For the front of the box, use double-stick adhesive around the perimeter of the paper. Before placing the paper down, run a bead of glue around the window of the box. Then place paper.
3. Use a craft knife to make two perpendicular (+) slits in the window of the box. Then tear and roll paper outward.
4. Cover Grumpy Ol' Bear with matching diecut. Cut paper for belly and hand write "Keep Out".
5. Use a liquid adhesive on the legs of the bear, then with lid removed, place the bear's legs down through the window, using other hand inside box to press it into place.
6. Make up some cute cards using these examples from Debbie Olson and myself, or invent your own. Or, forget the cards and fill with chocolate or other important belongings!
Also from Julie "Now, for a slick trick. Jenni Bowlin sent us this fabulous project using our Haunted Diecuts and matching Blackboard. I think these would be perfect for party favors, stuck in cupcakes. Hmmmmm, did I just mention cupcakes?"
