It's Halloween!

I know, I know.....we don't live in America, but I've noticed in the last few years that we seem to be involved in something "spooky" every year, and it's fun! Last year the kids had a Halloween disco at their school, and loved getting dressed up, and I have to admit, I had lots of fun making them all spooky too :)

This is a LO I did last year about Riley in his vampire costume...

...and how cool is the Halloween paper! I've stocked up on a few papers again this year, so expect to see some more Halloween LOs soon. Tonight the older two are off to a Halloween party, complete with trick-or -treating and pizza for dinner, and at this very minute are deciding what ghoulish colours they will be painting their faces. All good fun!

It didn't take me long to break out my DT pack from Tomorrows Memories! I have made one LO so far...

Now, you have to try to imagine the background being clear acrylic (not green) because that's what it is! It's REALLY hard to photograph it effectively...see my reflection in the photo? Take my word for it, it's clear.

Try the side view... with me? Looks a bit cool IRL...just wanted to try something a bit different, and love the way it turned out! I machine stitched the patterned paper to the acrylic to stabilize the page, and inked the lace and paper doily with sepia ink. After I took this photo, I added a couple more rub-ons to the acrylic. The papers are from the Winter Wonderland Collection from Webster's Pages, and all the goodies are available from Tomorrows Memories.

Speaking of which...I copied this from the TM blog...check it out all you local girls...
