The Halloween spirit is alive and well in my house.

As I've said before, I just love Halloween. And I love decorating for Halloween. Our challenge at BBTB2 this week was to use the banner from the Country Life cartridge. I thought it would make the perfect finishing touch to my spooky mantle decorations.

Banner - Country Life cart
Letters - Happy Hauntings cart
Spiders - Lyrical Letters cart
Spider web embossing folder - Cuttlebug
Glitter - Doodlebug

I also made these fun picture frames to add to the decor:

All cuts are from the Happy Hauntings cart

Enter....if you dare.

This week at BBTB2, Susan picked the haunted house from the Happy Hauntings cartridge. This was a project and a half for me. I don't do well with tedious tasks, so it actually took me over 4 hours to make my haunted house. I do love how it turned out though. One word of advice if you are going to make your own house, glue the window panes in first. The book shows you gluing them in after you fold your pieces into the shapes. That would just be a hassle. Glue them in before you fold your shapes and the process will go much smoother.

I should be ashamed.

The challenge this week at BBTB2 was to use the pointed hand from Graphically Speaking. When I first saw this cut, I thought to myself now what am I ever going to do with this? Then it popped in my head, and I decided to just go with it. I have no idea what you would ever use this card for, but it made me laugh, and my second grader thinks it's the best thing I've ever made. :-)
