Now you should have arrived here via the most talented gal I've ever known, Dana Seymour. What was Paulina thinking making me follow HER! Jeeze, after her blog I'm sure you don't want to see what paltry stuff I have to offer...sigh, talk about pressure! If you didn't (besides being lucky for me) you can find the full list of participants on the DeNami blog and get right back on track! :)
 
 
As usual, I just couldn't stop at one...

If you stopped by on Friday you saw another version of this little cutie. The class instructor was sweet enough to give me another die cut that includes the tree, house, pumpkin, tombstones and kitty (I cut the kitty off so I could move him). I didn't have another circle card or any more of the papers we used so I faked it :)   I pulled out my Creative Memories shape cutting system and made my circle card base by just not cutting it all the way around so there would be a "hinge". Then used a smaller circle and cut out the middle of the front of the card. After making my little scene I decorated the frame with the fun spiderweb from the Halloween Petit Four set and the Happy Halloween sentiment (using a masking technique).


I saw a card on the Internet that I just fell in love with and HAD to make my own version...have you ever done that? I pulled out some fun papers from a Halloween themed 6X6 patterned paper book and went from there...I made a label using the Elegant oval Frame with the Happy Halloween sentiment and the mini solid filigree. I thought it needed something more so I added some dots at the four points. I added a little sheer ribbon skirt using my ATG and just pleating the ribbon. This is popped up on foam tape over a piece of yummy orange chevron ribbon I purchased at Little Free Radical (link on Paulina's blog). To finish it all off I added a small twine bow and attached it with a tiny orange clothes pin that I added more yummy polka dots too.


Well, that's it for me today...again, I'm sorry I had to follow Dana, but seriously...can anyone and still look good??? :/
