Happy Monday everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  It was a busy one around here, I played along with 2 Blog Hops this weekend. was a hopping weekend...literally!
On Saturday, I was part of the Pink By Design Halloween Blog Hop.  There were some fabulous prizes up for grabs at this hop and there may still be time to get in on a chance to win.  I have a fun give away on my post and you have until tomorrow night to enter.  You can see that post HERE.

Yesterday was the second day of the 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop by My Cricut Craft Room.  There were lots of great projects and some fun give aways on this hop also.  You can see my post for this hop Here. if that weren't enough....Sunday was also my day to post on the Pink By Design blog!  (Did I mention that it was a busy weekend?)  Because of the hops, I didn't post my project for PBD here on Sunday, but today I would like to share it with you....

A few weeks ago, I had all three grands here at the same time and thought it would be nice to have a picture of them in matching outfits.  Let me just say...getting three kids ages 1 month, 2 years and 6 years to be still long enough for decent photo is not for the faint of heart!  I think I took about 50 photos in 2 minutes time (thank goodness for digital) and just hoped for the best!

After choosing the "best" photo out of that batch, I got busy in my craft room! For this project I used the following items:

* 8 X 10 Canvas
* Licorice acrylic paint from Folk Art
* Black distressed frame (from Michael's)
* Papers from DCWV's Ghost & Goblins paper stack
* Cricut's Art Philosophy
* Martha Stewart glitter in Black Licorice
* Martha Stewart border punch
* Assorted ribbon and trim from my ribbon stash
* Big Thoughts stamp set from Pink By Design

And here's my frame with my 3 little pumpkins nestled in among all my other fall decor...

If you would like more information, detailed instructions and more photos are posted on the Pink By Design blog.  I love for you stop by there and leave a comment on my post!

Well I'm off now to clean up my poor neglected house that has not seen a vacuum cleaner in many, many days now!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

Until next time,
