Happy October! I'm celebrating Halloween this year with a new Halloween banner, made with supplies from Alpha Stamps. I had so much fun making this, and it looks great on my mantel with some of my Halloween decorations. I really tried to jazz this banner up with rhinestone stars, Jolee's boutique skull cameos, and tons of trim, ribbon, and ric rac.


The center spells out "boo" in some orange-painted alphabet letters from Tim Holtz, mounted on accordion-fold medallions. 


Here's one of my favorite pennants, because I love this crazy chipboard bat cut-out.  I gave it a little detail with a white colored pencil, and slapped some cat eyes on there so he can see in the dark.


Just for fun, here's another view of the mantel. It's starting to look spooky around here!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

This is all kinds of fun!  And although it spells "boo" I think it says "shenanigans."

I love this in a really quirky way! It almost seems like you would see it in a comic strip! I love the playfulness of it, as opposed to the creepy gore that Halloween can sometimes bring. You did grand. I love the colors and detail. I love your wiggly spider, too. Very cute.
