"Trick or Treat" Kit

Happy Monday, everyone! Are you ready for Halloween yet? Remember to take lots of photos of your little ones in costume. It is such an exciting time of year for the kids. My little grandson is going to be a blue Crayola crayon and the dog is going to be a green Crayola crayon. I can't wait to see photos of them.

I have made another kit for the store using the Graphic 45 "An Eerie Tale" Collection. This time I decided to use the more subdued colours. I also made an owl embellishment which I purchased from Silhouette Studio (licensed), using my Silhouette Cameo. Have a great week and Happy Halloween!

Please excuse the shadow, I need some lessons in Photography!!

Prima Halloween Doll

Good Morning Everyone,

Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful sunshine out there this morning. Halloween is just around the corner so I thought I would do a tag using one of the cute Prima dolls. I paper pieced her with Graphic 45 Halloween paper called An Eerie Tale and some scraps from my stash. I embossed the tag with spider web embossing folder and then use Tim Holtz Black Soot distress ink to high light the spider web.




Thanks for looking and have a great day.
