One of my favorite holidays... Halloween!!! As a child my parents always decked out the entire house with ghoulish decorations! We made a grave yard in the front yard, inside was all decked out like a haunted house and Halloween dinner was always "wicked" looking! And we made it a point to go to a couple haunted houses during October as well! Now that my little ones are starting to get a little older they are REALLY wanting to decorate for Halloween and are attracted to all the spooky decorations! So I have been trying to make fun spooky decorations to put up in our house. And I had a batty time making this for my house! I used the Midnight Oil Clearly Designed Square album piece with some coordinating pattern paper, Heidi Swapp bling, pom pom trim and this cute digital image from Cheeky Radish Designs colored with Copic markers.

Then I had fun making an acrylic Halloween card-its SOOO cute I don't want to share it! I used the Midnight Oil Clearly Designed Step album and took 2 pages to use as my card, the front one being shorter than the back. I used some pattern paper as the background, Making Memories glittered mini letters, DoodleBug ric rac and this cute monster shaped card from Paper Popsicles. For the monster I used flocking to make him furry, alcohol ink to make him green, Distressed Stickles for his legs and added wiggly eyes and stitched a mouth. It was so easy to use a Crop a dile Big Bite to make the holes and tie the two pages together to make this card!

Its amazing how versatile the Midnight Oil products really are! I find myself reaching for album pieces ALL the time to create some new and fun things! So make sure to go and get yourself some Midnight Oil products and start thinking outside the box to find new uses!

Happy October and thanks for looking!

Till Next Month
