Boil Boil Toil and Peyton - Oh, I mean Trouble!

Hi Everyone! Ever have those days when you think your kid is the best kid in the whole entire world and that they can do no wrong! And that you couldn't ever be prouder! Then ever have those days where your kid cries about EVERYTHING non stop all day long and you want to pull your own hair out and ground yourself to your room so you can have a break! Oh, today is so one of those days where the crying just doesn't stop. Today is one of those days where I did almost ground myself to my room just to have a moment of piece and quiet. Ahhh! I feel better now. Thanks for listening! :).

Now on to all that is crafty! So I have been working on a banner for Halloween for a few weeks. I got the pennants all cut out and my black cardstock scored to make lollies. And then I had my friend Amber cut out the letters for me, along with the scallop circles. I am so happy with the way it turned out!!!! I am sure those of you that have been visiting for a while know that I have a hard time just leaving things be. I always have to clutter things up. It's my style. It's what I do :). But I got the lollies, scallop circles and letters on, and then strung the whole thing with ribbon and tulle, and I loved it just as it was! I know, something is seriously wrong with me! I got my Halloween decorations up a week before Halloween and I didn't keep adding more stuff to my banner! Ha! What can I say, I loved it just the way it was.

So here are the pic's:

I love all the fun papers!

This spider was on my high counter, but when I put up the spider-web, I knew it would have to be moved over. Peyton and I decided that it is Aragog and the other small spiders are it's kids!

The spider-web was such a pain to hang up! I have tape all over my pretty banister :(. It didn't want to stay. But finally I got it all up. It's literally all hanging on by a thread.

Here are the banner supplies:

Cardstock - Bazzill Basics
Patterned Paper - Fancy Pants, Authentique, Echo Park
Ribbon - May Arts, my stash, Stampin' Up!
Die Cut Letters - Cricut {Thanks Amber!}

Smallest supply list ever!

After I finished my banner, I was going to start working on my paper mache skull that I got the other day, but I guess I am out of mod podge :(, so I made a little circle garland for my little black Halloween tree. I have been wanting to make one of these for the longest time, and so finally, I just did it!!!

Here are the pic's:

After I added on the garland, I added on a small amount of spider-web and then Peyton and I put on a few spiders! I have been trying to figure out for the longest time what to add to this tree, and I am so glad that the garland worked out so well!!!
Here are the supplies for the garland:

Paper - Fancy Pants, Echo Park, Authentique
Twine - my stash
Glue - Crystal Effects from Stampin' Up!
Punches - 3/4" cirlce, 1" circle from Stampin' Up!

Hope you all are enjoying this Halloween Season!
