Halloween/Autumn Pin Swap

So I went on a wonderful weekend of crafting with some of my Cricut Circle friends last week and we did a pin swap. I did mine entirely from paper but it was pretty stable since it's about 4 layers thick plus I coated it with Tattered Angels glimmer glaze which is like a sealer. I used the chandelier glaze color which is a fabulous clear coat with rainbow glittery goodness. I highly reccommend it!
I gave people the choice of either Halloween or Autumn themes since not everyone celebrates Hallween. The pumpkins are from the digital cart Smiley Cards I got from buying my Gypsy last year. I also used the leaf from Gypsy Wanderings and flower and scalloped circle from Forever Young.
The main difference between the 2 are the colors and I added on some teeth and stickles to the Halloween one. I also used a cuttlebug striped folder to emboss the pumpkins and of course inked everything.
Oh and I also had to share the hotel I stayed at, the SouthPoint Hotel in Las Vegas. It was great, just south of the strip, and with plenty to do for all ages. They had a theater, bowling alley, spa and multiple places to grab some food. The best part of the place was that everything was super easy to find and layed out in a central pattern around the casino area. My room was also great with plenty of space, although I was facing a wall!


  1. Vegas baby! Don't you love it? We've driven by Southpointe and I always wondered about it. Thanks for the review!

  2. I come from a small town so it's definitely a change of pace! The Southpoint even has a free shuttle from the airport if you need. Oh and anyone looking for it it's on level 0 of the airport which I didn't even know they had.
