Hi Guys! We made it to one of my favorite months, October! If you have been following my blog for a while, you already know this about me. I just love the wacky colors and decorations. And, let’s face it, how many times a year do you get to dress up as crazy as you want to and not be looked at weird because of it? The kids just love it, too! Since our neighborhood is so sprawling (for a subdivision) most houses set up a trick-or-treat candy table at the end of their driveways. That way the kids can hit more houses in less time. Here is a pic of the girls setting up our table. Oh, and Lily is a zombie pirate (I have NO idea where she got that idea, but she pulled it off and in very scary style), and Maddie is the Little Mermaid. I am still a little stunned at how scary my sweet little angel, Lily, looked. Of course, Maddie is the perfect mermaid. It also seems like Lily grew 6 inches!
I used the Graphic 45 Place in Time cutouts for October on this page, and Steampunk Spells because it is one of my favorite Halloween collections. One of the wonderful things about Graphic 45 is most of their lines are interchangeable-one more reason to love them. I did some paper distressing, and inked the edges with Black Soot. I used Stickles and Glossy Accents (for actual dimension instead of a glue-a change for me). I was very pleased that I was able to add plenty of layers, and even a metal clock charm, without adding too much bulk to my book. Bulk was my BIG challenge with this mini.
I hope you have enjoyed. If you missed previous months’ posts the links are below. Thanks for stopping by!
