Halloween Tote

Hello & Happy Friday!

Hope everyone had a great week!
The weekend is finally upon us and the weather here in Joplin the last 2 days has gotten quite cool and I for one is lovin it! The crisp cool air reminds me of fall & Halloween that are just around the corner. Fall is my 2nd favorite time of the year after spring and since it's been brutally hot here this summer, i'm happy that fall is on our doorsteps!!

So yesterday Vicki & I got together and stamped! She brought all kinds of goodies and I loved each one! We made these wooden Halloween totes. She picked these up at Micheal's and spray painted them with black paint and then we grabbed some designer papers and got started. I chose Stampin Up's Frightful Sight DSP because I loved the little ghosts on the one sheet. Then I also remembered seeing people use the Owl punch upside down as a ghost so of course I had to try that!! I then used Vicki's stamp set called Scaredy Cat and embossed the Happy Halloween w/ghost image in white embossing powder on Black cardstock and layered it on Pumpkin Pie cardstock with my little ghost coming up behind the saying. Then, Tuesday when we went to Micheal's we picked up these cute little Halloween clothes pins and I added the black & white spider one to my handle with some scrap pieces of ribbon. I found in my stash the Halloween shredded paper and some Halloween peanut butter pumpkins! Yum! Oh my, I think it's Spooky cute! :)

Thanks again Vicki for bringing over some awfully cute projects!
