{Scrapbooking and Halloween Decor}

I had a play date the other day. :) Jenny came over for a crafting session. She worked on a
scrapbook for someone small and sweet, and I created framed Halloween decorations that
will be holiday gifts. We were both awfully proud of our creative productivity.

You might remember I made a similar framed Halloween pieces in 2008. I had supplies
for more, (which included old frames that I spray painted, Daisy D's gypsy Halloween
paper and embellishments from my stash). The ribbon is actually repurposed material
that I saved -- ties that were on old chair cushions! Anyway, I thought these would make
fun Christmas gifts.

They're all essentially the same on the top half. The bottom has the same cat-hat-broom
image, but I decorated each differently. I love this paper, and working on something for
Halloween really got me in the mood for fall -- my favorite time of the year. I'm trying not
to fixate on the way fall passes us by here in Phoenix. I'll decorate and pretend, instead.

Here's a closer look:

Ahh, to make things. It feels so good. And to finish them -- well, that's just fabulous on
a whole other level. I'm thinking these 8x10 framed pieces need 5x7 counterparts.
I'll just add that to the list of things I want to craft. Until next time, mon amis!
