pumpkinheads















well its that time again...time for yet another Treasured Memories Design Team reveal-

so i decided since we are in the month of october, what better way to pay tribute to the month that has brought us pumpkins, witches and gobblins - than by creating a halloween layout.....


YES~i love halloween... soooooo much!!!! i decided to go with the basic grey - eerie - halloween collection. one of the challenges was to use the iron on's from prima - so ....i decided to use the underside of the iron on flowers and distress them with ink. i added green beading (...... a very teensy piece of the million dollar "mrs charolette" stash of goodies i just inherited....!!!!! omg !!!! i was recently at a crop hosted by faith 365. mrs charolette was there too. she told me that she had a bag of things for me that she thought i could use.....boy, was i shocked when i has handed this HUGE bag of treaures - an endless supply of beautiful lace, ribbon, cording, beading.....all sorts of odds and ends that had my name all over it...when i started looking through all of the goodies --it almost brought me to tears - it was such a thoughtful gift....i absolutely and whole heartedly thank you soooooooooooooooo much mrs .charlotte!!! you are such a sweet person (who also makes awesome cookies,too;)..... i cant say thanks enough....

sooooo....i added a little bit of lace and ribbon. i also used tim holtz distress stickles on the candy wrapper pumpkin i designed topped with the inside wrappings of reeses peanut butter cups in the shape of a stem....
and what is trick or treat without a doorbell - ding dong!!! "trick or treat".....
the doorbell shell was actually the original one on the front door of our home....i added this special touch to go with the idea of candies and yummies to fill little tummies on halloween night....i also distressed the new 7 gypsies cardstock bookcover to read the definition of the word witch. i love detail, so i hand cut out trees from the basic grey paper line...and of course there were buttons!!!ha ha ha....i also used a few items from jenni bowlin's line that i was given from amy - thanks amy!!!! this layout was sooooooooooo much fun!!!!! i have been wanting to scrap this picture of abby and felix - and i think i waited til i got it laid out just right...
