a few years ago i got into scrapbooking. i was also a first grade teacher and still have lots of arts and crafts supplies. itching to get crafty, the idea struck to make some textural halloween cards for my niece, alaina, and the two littles ones i sit using only materials i had in the house.
alaina is going as cinderella this year. like most little girls these days, she's really into princesses (much to my chagrin). but that didn't stop me from making her a pretty princess card - the pumpkin coach was too perfect to pass up!
(i should have signed 'your fairy godmother', since i am her godmother. doh!)
evie just turned 2 a little over a week ago. she really likes a scarecrow doll decoration and the color purple, so i created this card for her.
three-year-old j.t. (more commonly called "bubby") loves playing with a ceramic haunted house. he told me that he has decided to be a ghost for halloween. he also wanted to be a robot and a telephone, so we'll have to wait and see what his final decision is!=)
(i can't take full credit for this creation, as i used this card for guidance.)
the napkin ghosts and pipe cleaner bat were my idea=)
amazing the fun you can have with some scraps, stickers, scissors and glue!
ps - i updated my blog look to encompass more of my interests. hope you like!=)
