Oasis Chapter of Demolay put on this amazing dance last night. The decorations are just wonderfully spooky and I love their graveyard. Everyone had a tombstone including Ub. I will have to upload the tombstones later. Mitch will be 12 on Wed the 3rd and can join Demolay so this was his second function and he had a ball. Josh ran the lights and had wired up the sound for them as well as danced with the girls in hopes of getting the other boys to ask girls to dance (which they did not...uggg) Jared at the end scared everyone out of the ballroom with a chainsaw skit with a real chainsaw. Talk about clearing out a room he even scared Mitch to death...lol...it was a priceless moment and I think all that attended had a great time. I took lots of pics but only put a few up to show off what a good job they did.
Happy Scary Halloween!
I got crafty yesterday. I have been sick and these projects have been sitting neglected. I wanted them all done before Halloween and I did all but one. Maybe today I can crank out my haunted house, we'll see.
The pumpkins we saw at convention and I fell in love with them. I bought the white pumpkins at Michaels. The "trick or treat" is our decor elements Spooky Things (#122296) and the Black Flourish (#120987) and raven lace ribbon (#120988) This was super easy and took 20 minutes to make.
The Frame was a standard frame I bought at Walmart for $3.00 and using that same sheet of decor elements (#12296) I put the Happy Halloween on the glass and then used our Nite Owls designer series paper, DSP for short (#123012) and the Dark & Dreary stamp set(#121151) for the owl and spiders and the BaroqueMotifs (#113490), the colors I used were Pear Pizazz and Pumpkin pie as well as basic black. also a really quick project to do...less then 30 minutes
Last but not least, the cute little decor blocks(#116829), I used the Nite Owl DSP (#123012) and sponged the edges in basic black ink, "BOO" was made using Serif Essentials alphas die(#113464) and they were spritzed with silver foil Smooch spritz (#118771) on the B and the spiders I used our new rhinestones(#119246) the spiders were stamped from Dark & Dreary(#121151) and I used our circles punches. On the last block the 2-3/8 scallop punch(#118874) was used to punch a scrap of black CS, then punch a white CS scrap with the 1-3/4 circle punch (#119850) then emboss with the square lattice folder(#119976), the "2U" is cut using the Timeless Type die cut (#115951) in pumpkin pie.
The really fun thing about these blocks is that I have 5 other sides I can decorate for the different holidays. For Thanksgiving I have "Give Thanks" mostly done and as soon as I turn them I will get them loaded here. A little more time consuming but that's because there are 6 sides to decorate. Really fun!!!
If you see something and would like to order please leave me a comment and I will get my demo website hooked up and we will get your order placed. Those blocks will make a cute Christmas gift. The other sides are give thanks, fall, Noel, love and boo 2U. We have all kinds of fun things to decorate them with.
Have a great day everyone,
Trunk or treat was so much fun last night. This is most likely Mitchell's last year getting to participate in trunk or treat because he will be one of the young men who will help out all the little kids(I'm not even teary eyed as I write this...YET...ha ha ha) The church always does the best trunk or treat. Next year I promised Mitchell we would decorate our trunk and he can pass out the candy, that might make the transition a little easier for him.
Tonight is regular trick or treating and I wish you all a Happy and safe Halloween!
