Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! I hope you've got something fun planned today! Maybe you're helping out at a school party, or you're the one left behind to answer the door for all the trick or treats! Our neighborhood is all abuzz on Halloween! Weather permitting the adults will be sitting around fire pits in their driveways - having drinks and socializing while the kids run from door to door looking for the house with the best treats. We started giving away lunch size bags of chips years ago and most of the kids know what we have before they even get here. My kids are grown now, and I still get reminiscent - thinking of costumes from years gone by.. my son dressed as a jedi or vampire and my daughter in countless princess costumes.
Pretty Little Studio has lots of vintage images for your Halloween delight! I love the papers from the Trick or Treat Collection. There's the orange and blacks you might expect for Halloween papers, but these have accents of yellow and mint. The papers have traditional stripes, stars and houndstooth, but you'll also find peacock feathers and brocade.

I topped the background papers with a journaling card - Casper Bookmark Tag and layered it with lots of vintage die cuts including the Orange Pumpkin Mini (thats the one with the green leaves), Pumpkin Mini, Casper Ghost, and Abracadabra (witch). The "October 31" sentiment is a Cut Outs called Candy Corn Word Flags. There's 24 printed on a sheet that you cut apart. 

I have to have some sparkle and shine. Thank goodness there's new sequins in the store! I used large clear Harvest Pumpkin, and mini solid yellow Buttered Corn to compliment the colors in my card. The mixed sizes are fun, and the colors remind me of candy corn!
Best Witches and Happy Haunting!
