When Witches Go Riding

Hi crafty friends! Hope you are all having a spooky Halloween season! My house has been really quiet this week. My parents took Peyton down to their house in Saint George last Sunday. I have been able to clean my craft room, get some crafting done, and watch some TV that I was behind on! Thong has watched sports non stop - it's his favorite time of year for sure! But boy do we miss our little girl! She is still gone too this whole next week, as well! But Friday, my parents took Peyton and my nephew, O.J., down to Disneyland! I am so jealous!! But I am so excited for her to go and have fun! They went yesterday, and then are going back tomorrow and Tuesday!

Yesterday, I got a call in the afternoon. Peyton was so excited to tell me that she saw Cinderella! When we went earlier this year, we didn't get to see her the whole time, so she could hardly stand it that she got to see her this time! She did say that she didn't get to see Ariel yet, so maybe tomorrow she will get to. Here's hoping!

At work we have been  having a Halloween Desk Decorating competition, so I have been making lots of fun decorations to show off. So far, only some people have been decorating. I did get a few people though to finally decorate theirs later this week. On my next post, I will show you all my desk.

In the mean time, I made one more thing to hang up at home with my Halloween decorations. I had some fun tags made from Fancy Pants left over, along with the rest of the Halloween paper I got this year.

So I made this scrapbook page frame to go with a pic of Peyton from Halloween last year. She was the cutest little witch - if I do say so myself :).

So here are the supplies I used:

Frame: Provo Craft
Paint: Cream acrylic
Distressing Ink: Ranger
Die Cuts: Tim Holtz, Cricut, My Mind's Eye, Authentique
Patterned Paper - My Mind's Eye, Authentique, Fancy Pants, Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Punch: Martha Stewart border, Small Scallop Circle
Jewels: My stash, Stampin' Up!
Stickers: Tim Holtz
Ribbon: Stampin' Up!, Offray, tulle

I love the boney hand!! As you can see, I had to make another bow, thanks to Amber! She got me addicted to making them! And I love the quote in the center of the layout:

"When witches go riding
And black cats are seen,
The moon laughs and whispers,
'Tis near Halloween."
Totally spooky and great for Halloween!

One more thing before I am off to bed.... One of Peyton's favorite books that is perfect for Halloween season is called "Room On A Broom" by Julia Donaldson. It is such a cute story about a witch and her companions and the adventure they encounter together. It's a really cute story told in verse. If you are looking for a fun Halloween story for your younger children, check this out. It will become a classic for future Halloweens to come!

Stay crafty and hope you have a great Halloween!
