Happy Belated Halloween

Hope you had a Happy Halloween and didn't eat too much candy! My kids (ages 20 & 17) had a few friends over Friday night. Many of them actually came in costume. My DD bought some strobe lights, a ghost that "flew" across the room and other scary decorations. Everyone seemed to have fun-they drank a lot of pop, ate a bunch of candy and chips and played games!

Ugh! I didn't realize this was hanging crooked! I took these photos outside and I couldn't see the screen of my digital camera and as usual I was in a hurry. Oh well you get the idea!
This was a very fun project! Most of the things I make are for classes, clubs or swaps and while I love making them it was nice to make something just for fun. I could use my retired stash, I didn't have to think if I had enough pieces to make enough swaps, what is on special, etc, etc. I could just play!
The panels are chipboard odds & ends that I ran through the Big Shot with the Top Note Die. The paper is from Cast-a-Spell and I used a glue stick to adhere them to the chipboard. The letters are from the On Board Simon lower case that are on clearance. Because this set of letters only has one of each I did have to create and extra "e" from a "c" and an extra piece. I also made an "l" by cutting off part of a "k". I used craft ink spots to color the letters. I don't have Perfect Plum craft so I inked a layer of Elegant Eggplant and when it was dry inked a layer of Lovely Lilac.

I used my only
(gasp!) Halloween set for a couple of the embellishments. It is SU but retired. The owl is chipboard covered in DSP with Kiwi Kiss corduroy button eyes (actually the paper color is Old Olive but don't tell anyone!) with a couple of punched out black circles. The metal pieces between the panels are jewelery spacers that I used on another project.
