Halloween and Steam Punk Spells!

Hope everyone is having a fab Sunday

I have a huge list of things to be getting on with but they are all fun so I don't mind.  I have had a fab weekend of crafting with my friends and I thought I would share a layout that I actually managed to finish in between the chatting and eating of cake.  Alison gave us the perfect excuse to eat copious amounts of cake as she organised a Macmillan coffee morning and so we had a tasty time doing our bit for charity.  Great cause and great cake Alison.  The lemon drizzle was scrummy!!!

Graphic 45's Steam Punk Spells recently fell into my shopping basket and I have used a little bit to make a halloween layout.  These photo's were taken 5 years ago before Callum and Charlie (in the main photo) got too old for trick or treating!!!!

There is a bit of a glare on the photo so I have taken a close up of the little pocket watches I created.  I was pleased with how these embellishments turned out.  They look cute on my spooky page!!!  I fussy cut a couple of watches from the G45 paper and then I attached a tiny Tim Holtz clock hand with a brad and finished them off by cutting up some circle bubble plastic wrap and it was the perfect size to finish off a realistic looking fob watch what do you think?  Easy peasy but the perfect embellishment for my layout.

I made a couple of little tags (tucked in behind the Mummy and Witch photo ready for some journalling about the spooky exploits of trick or treating at Halloween.  That holiday is fast approaching again.  I know it is not as big here as in the US but I love it.  Even though the kids have grown out of it a bit I am still going to decorate for the trick or treaters that pop by.  I'll share some photos of my creepy garden when the time comes.

Just a quick post today and I am back to ticking off the jobs on my list.  One down lots to to........!!! Have a great week and thanks for popping by x

  2. Such a fun layout! :Love how you made the clocks and the title. They look so cute and like they had a great time! Crafting and cake, just a perfect pair! Yep, Halloween is a favorite here. I always love when it falls on a weekend and I can see a lot of kids all day long instead of just a few hrs after work.
