Blingy circle layout

Here are some past pictures of Hannah which I have been holding on to waiting for inspiration. Finally I saw something with a collage of photos in a circle in a magazine. Using that theme, I made this and added bling for a challenge. Hope you like it. It's almost all traditional, Just used the computer for the journaling in the round. But next time...........

Little Halloween Aristocats

Halloween Spooky Black Wreath

My daughter wanted to know what my "Annual" Halloween decor would be for her home. Well, Just because I happen to make a couple of things in the past, I didn't realize it was an annual thing but as the good mother and grand mother, I needed an idea. I made a wreath. I used the Cricut to cut dozens of black cardstock leaves which I outlined in white pen and stickles(green, orange and purple). I then curled the leaves on the handle of a whisk. I used a glue gun (1st time) to attach them to a styrofoam ring which I covered in ribbon for sturdiness. I then made the paper ornaments, come with photos and added them, along with the web, spiders, skeletons and pumpkins, all cut with the cricut. The big skeleton is a Sizzix die. so off to Boston it went but not before I took this photo which I entered in a Holloween papercraft contest and won FIRST PLACE. YEAH!!!!! The prize, which arrived was a large halloween photo collage with the photos in individual frames, which I can use during the year for my own photos. It's really beautiful. I'll post when it's hanging.
