Halloween Decor

Usually, I don't really do Halloween decoration. I guess because we don't have any kids, yet and my neighborhood usually pretty quiet during Halloween. But, last week, I got this Happy Howl-loween set from Digital Doodle and the DT gals really inspired me to step up my game and create something besides cards.

So, here we go. My very first Halloween table decor. All made with papers.


Challenges:
MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge, Make A Scene!
Freshly Brewed - paper piecing
AiFactory - anything goes
Alice in Wonderland - with a window or hole
Incy Wincy Designs - anything goes
Stamps R Us - halloween


View from an angle to show the layers.

For the bats, I attached them using a strip of acetate. I curled one of the acetate strip and attached the bat at the curled end, so it looks like the bat flying in front of the "Boo!" moon. The other one, I left it straight the way it is.

Here's a look of the decor in a dark room. Kind of fun to see how the yellow papers just glow. I thought it looks pretty darn good in the dark and not too scary looking. LOL, I avoided putting anything scary looking in our house. Only cutesy stuff for me. Sorry for the poor quality of the pic, it's really hard getting good picture in the dark. :)


Each of the DT member get to pick which set they want to work with, so you will really see variety of project from the Digital Doodle gals. Go check them out here and enjoy some inspiring eye candies.



By the way, this weekend is World Card Making Day. Do you have any plan to celebrate it? I'm thinking about doing a a little contest or a card drive to make it more fun. Awhile back my mom has this suggestion of doing cards for the elderly. We have many elderly in nursing homes that are lonely & sometime forgotten. She thought it would be nice if we remember the elderly as well and not just kids (she knows I supported Cards For Kids). Would you join me if I do this theme?

Pitch in your suggestion and if you have any particular nursing homes in mind, please email or left a comment & we can organize to mail the card there. Or if you know anyone in a nursing home who could use a cheerful card to brighten their day, send in their info. On Thursday, I'll decide what we would do, how, and I'll get some prizes ready. Since international shipping is expensive, those outside the US can join if you don't mind sharing the shipping cost. Sounds good? Any and all suggestions are welcome! Cheers...
