Spooky Times Ahead

Gaily surfing the net one day when I came across Your Paper Pantry liked the look of it and in one of my mad moments I joined. They have lots of different swaps on the go every month but the one that caught my eye was a Pocket For Your Thoughts. You make a 5″ x 7″ pocket out of sturdy stuff and then you have to fill it with at least 4 tags.

Now you can see where I’m going … it’s the tags. September’s swap was … Ooooooh Halloween … fun time for me even though not really a Halloween type of gal. What you can’t see in the pocket is the little organza sweet treat bag which is shoved behind everything … the brief was to add an adult sweet treat.

Just missed having my youngest son on the scariest day of the year, he was born 30th October.

Teach me to read things properly …
sitting admiring my work and feeling really chuffed with myself because I had finished in time to post when I went back over the gumph to find our where I had to post … YIKESyou have to make three of these for the swap … oops guess who was late posting!!! All dun and dusted now and winging their way across the pond.

No jokes about I could have delivered them myself if I had got the broomstick out of the closet.

Decorated the back of the pocket with lots of gold embossing powder around the edges before stamping these cute little images. Still got to love that cat so gorgeous!!!!

    Lucky you! My son WAS born on October 31st! He turns 17 this year. Great kid even if he was born on a scary day. Beautiful card/pocket you created. I always love your stuff.

    soooo…are you saying that you were late? And they only had to go to England? lol. It looks like a wonderful challenge Shirl, and the finished project looks fantastic! I love the detail on everything…and the ratchety old fences really adds heaps of atmosphere.
