PaperGirls #90 - Get Ready for Halloween!

Karrie here to tell you how much I love October because it brings Halloween! 
If you love to celebrate Halloween too, show me how you get ready - make treat bags for the kiddos? Elaborate costumes or home decorations?  Cards?  
I had fun using up some old rubons with mists, paint, and dollar store Halloween decorations to make my own wall hanging. 


So let us see your creations!
If you do not celebrate - just make something with the halloween colours, black, orange, purple.

Once again, here is our guest designer for October, Gaylynn Martling
Hi, I’m Gaylynn and I enjoy making handmade cards, decorations and party related items.  Mixed media art is another interest of mine.  Making time to document my kids (now adults) and family life are things I want to catch up on.  I have a creative blog called Neat Nook Creations, where I post projects that I make along the way.

Here is what Gaylynn created for this challenge:


I like to include a handmade touch for our Halloween candy each year.  The theme for this week's challenge was the inspiration for these bat wraps. This shape was cut and scored from Cricut Artiste.  The cute face and funny sentiment were stamped in white craft ink, then heat embossed.  I added a sentiment tag and twine bow.  The colors are black and white. Small treats work best for this favor wrapper.  

Be sure to visit Gaylynn's blog, Neat Nook Creations, because she is offering up a giveaway of her own right now for blog followers/commenters!! She's giving away this fun stamp:




...and a couple of the other DT members have been busy too!

Wonderful challenge theme and such fun samples by Gaylynn and the others. Too bad the Halloween candy already got eaten at my house, or I might make some treat holders, too!! Hahahaha... It lasted about 4 days. Oh, my..... Time to go back to the store....or maybe I should wait another week!
