Family Sunday: Halloween Share

Today I wanted to share a few pictures of my grandkids from Halloween.  I loved getting these pictures.  It’s hard to be so far away and not be there for these fun times, but I’m very grateful to get the pictures and all the fun stories that go along with them.

Here’s Stephanie with her kiddos all dressed up and ready to go!

And here’s a picture of 3 yo Savannah on an dragon ice sculpture from a couple days before.  Isn’t that amazing?

Can you see Savannah in this picture?  She was waiting in the cackling contest line.  She had been looking forward to it for days and practiced on the way there.  So funny!  Mom reports she did great and won a vampire blow toy.  🙂

Here’s Kristin’s family.  Can you tell what their costume theme was this year?

  Kristin was Katniss, Joel was Peeta and Siena was Effie Trinket from the Hunger Games.  Here’s the mockingjay pin Kristin made to go on her jacket.

Here’s a couple more pictures of their Hunger Games themed costumes.

Kristin says that Siena was pretty mad about the lipstick.  🙂

And look at this darling picture of little Siena trick-or-treating.

Kristin writes:  “Halloween = Pure joy for a first time parent.”

Stampin’ Up! Tricky Treats Happy Halloween

Tricky Treats plaid halloween bat 2

Remember the old song, “What a difference a day makes.  twenty-four little hours…” I found myself humming, “What a difference an eye makes…” today as I created this cute bat tag.

Tricky Treats hallow-wing missing eyes

The finishing touch on this little bat was adding the adhesive-backed googly eyes.  What a difference?  It took it from cute to adorable!  You’re friends will love this cute little guy with his googly eyes, and this little greeting card is quick to create.

To create this card I started with a Basic Black cardstock base. I centered my Labels Collection Framelit on the front, secured it with post it notes and ran it through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  I backed it with plaid Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper.  I used a smaller label framelit to cut out the center piece.  Everything was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the bat tag from the Tricky Treats stamp set with Basic Black Craft ink and embossed it with Black Emboss Powder, after sprinking it with a just a touch of Iridescent Ice Emboss Powder for a hint of glitter.  Be careful not to mix the embossing powders.

The bat tag was punched with a circle punch and was added to the center with a dimensional and then tied to a Tangerine Tango Glimmer at the top with Linen Thread.

An added bonus when backing the label cut-out on front is the fun pattern that shows on the interior.  A Happy Halloween sentiment from the Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set was stamped in the middle with Tangerine Tango ink.
