Hi everyone! Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday weekend. I have been having the most marvelous last few days. Since Thursday, I’ve been doing all sorts of playing and cavorting, including hanging out with my best girlfriends, shopping, scrapping, and eating out. What could be better than that? Honestly! Truly nothing much could top that list……..except to perhaps throw a little Halloween goodness in there, as well. I know it’s only the first week of September, but I am in the mood. Of course it doesn’t hurt that I stopped off at one of my all-time favorite places, and saw enough Halloween decorations to jump start even the most luke-warm of spirits. I’m thinking I need to get a job there, just so I can purchase pretties all year long! This place NEVER fails to put a smile on my face. Check out these great photos I got.
Wrap it all up! I’ll take it!
So now that I got you in a Halloweeny mood, I will share my page for the current challenge over at the Creative Pandemonium blog. I scrapped one of my favorite photos of Nik on Halloween night about 4 years ago. She called this costume her “elephant trainer” outfit.
She is just too cute to spook, isn’t she? Hence the irony of the title, “something wicked this way comes”. Meant to be a little bit of a joke there. The challenge is to use some sort of stitching, hand journaling, and non-alphabet stickers. I used zig-zag rub-on stitches, hand-written journaling strips, and some Creative Imaginations stickers for my challenge requirements. Paper and orange, chipboard alphabet is from Little Yellow Bicycle. I covered a Melissa Francis chipboard bat with patterned paper and added gemstone eyes for a bit of Halloween-themed fun, and finished off my title work with some older Reminisce alpha rub-ons from my stash. Always love using old stash items!
Thanks so much for stopping by everyone! Enjoy the rest of your long weekend!
