Happy Halloween

Halloween [older spelling: Hallowe'en]:
Shortened from All-hallow-even, as it is the evening before “All Hallows’ Day” (also known as “All Saints’ Day”)

Aren't you glad you asked?
Now that we got all the boo-ya stuff out of the way, let's carry on with some craftyness:))

Last week I managed to complete two more layouts with my {{October Kit}}, which brings my total to six layouts. I struggled a little with this Kit as orange is not really my favoured colour when it comes to crafting - so I was glad that one of the Prima papers had a pink pattern on the back *phew*.

**click on any of the images to enlarge the view**
Papers: Prima Marketing ** Stickers: Making Memories, Jenni Bowlin ** Tag: Rusty Pickle ** Button: My Little Bit Of Whimsey ** Other: Embroidery Floss; Flatbacked Pearls; Vintage Bookpage

Papers: Sassafras Lass; Rose Mokka; Graphic 45 ** Stickers: Making Memories, Sassafras Lass ** Button: Cosmo Cricket ** Rub Ons: Kaisercraft ** Other: Masking Tape; Flatbacked Pearls; Alpha Beads; Punchinella: Uniball Signo Pens

So - that is my October Kit done with and I am already excited to get cracking on my November hues that suit me much more than orange.

Before I go, I have also created a card for the recent {{Card Patterns}} sketch - using an image from the upcoming November release of {{Some Odd Girl}}
I  love the Elf...she has some sort of a Bavarian feel about her, no?

Cardstock: Papermill ** Papers: Upsy Daisy Designs ** Digital Stamp: Some Odd Girl ** Rubber Stamp: Stampin' Up ** Pens: ProMarkers; Uniball Signo; Asda Glitter Pens ** Other: Cosmic Shimmer; Embroidery Floss; Masking Tape; Flatbacked Pearls.

I was really glad that I still had my glitter gel pens from Asda, as they enabled me to just trace the outlines of parts of the image, which I wanted to highlight.

Not too bad, hu? I can see a few more glitterfied cards coming on soon :)

Have a spooctacular day
