I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

Monster Bash

I am so excited to post my first Design Team project for Hiding In My Craft Room!

The Challenge for this week is to use Halloween Colors - you don't have to make a Halloween project, just use the fun colors associated with Halloween.  There is an awesome Halloween Bundle up for grabs too!  So be sure to get your cards or layouts linked up over at HIMCR!

For my project, I made the invitations to my family's Halloween Party that is at my house every year.  It's just a front and back (not a card, but still A2 size).  I used Create-A-Critter 2 for the little monsters and bats.  The phrase is also from that cartridge.  I used paper from The Paper Studio's All Seasons II pack and cut around the edges with a pair of zig-zag scissors, also from The Paper Studio.  The black and white circle ribbon was just from my stash, not sure where/who it's from.  I printed the actual invitation off my printer and used the "chiller" font.  I really LOVE these little monsters and hope my nephews and nieces get a kick out of them too!  I will also be linking this up over at An Inky Situation for the color challenge going on over there.  Thanks for checking in!!!
