Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween to you! Each year we have a Halloween Party which we hold out in our barn. We really get into decorating our yard and barn for the party. A lot of our friends & family look forward to our party each year and go all out with their costumes, I always look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with! There are always a few that are downright hilarious...and this year was no exception!  It really does makes for a fun evening! This year I sent out invitations that I designed using My Digital Studio.

I printed them at home on Whisper White card stock...4 to a page, then cut them and mounted them on 1/4 sheet of Pumpkin Pie. I used the From the Crypt stamp brush set and also printed out a sheet of the spiders on 1" circles of Cast A Spell DSP which I also used on the rest of the invite along with a few elements from the Pick Your Poison Designer Kit. I punched out the spider circles and added a black rhinestone to each one (along with the little bat) and then adhered them to a 1-1/4" black circle, and attached them to my card using a dimensional. Of course I stamped my envelopes to match. I love having my favorite Halloween papers still available to me by using them in MDS! Here's a little closer look...
I made up prize buckets containing a scary movie on DVD, popcorn & candy to give to the winners of our costume contest. I inserted a hand stamped pick into each one with the couple, scariest & funniest.

Like I said, we really get into that includes our pumpkin carvings.

The past couple years I've dressed as something creepy (last year I was even a creepy man...Alice Cooper) so this year I wanted to dress in something pretty, so this is what I came up with.
Notice the arrow going thru my hubby's hat! lol Not too much to his costume, but he liked it that way. I got the pieces for mine at the Salvation Army and added details using paint, beads & feathers (which I already had in my stash) so I spent less than $10 on mine...not including the moccasins, which I already had. Check out the incredibly beautiful face painting my friend Amy had done for her Day of the Dead costume...she looked amazing!

And now, here's a treat for you....
