We had a great Halloween! The weather was perfect-- I still can't believe how nice it was!-- and everyone had a great time!
I thought I'd share our costumes...
Jonah was a clone trooper, from the Star Wars Saga. He got the helmet for Christmas a couple of years ago and I picked up the white hoodie at the thrift store for $1.
Sage wore her owl costume again this year and looked absolutely adorable!
I made Austin a Harry Potter costume, using a tutorial from Fiskars. I was really pleased with how it turned out!
And I decided to be Harry's snowy owl, Hedwig. I made the top a tank top I found at the thrift store, to which I sewed large scalloped strips. For the hat, I altered a white tuque (also from the thrift store) and added some polar fleece eyes and nose (the grey eyes I cut out using my PTI damask snowflake dies). It's always fun dressing up, but I do get some people who look at me a little strangely. I try not to let it bother me though, because I know my kids LOVE it when I dress up with them!
Here's the whole gang:
And, on the topic of dressing up, I wanted to share the Pages With Papertrey challenge #3 for November: dress up a sticker with some PTI goodness.
Here, on my layout, I took a Lily Bee sticker, layered it onto a scalloped circle and then onto a Doily Details diecut. To finish it off, I added a decorative brad to the centre.
Here's the whole layout:
I used PTI cardstock (ocean tides, stamper's select white, pure poppy) & dies (half & half, love lives here, doily details). I also used Bazzill cardstock (12x12), Lily Bee patterned paper and sticker and October Afternoon letter stickers.
I tucked the journaling behind the large photo on the half & half die cut:
If you'd like to play along with this month's Pages With Papertrey challenge, just post your layout here in the PTI forum.
Thanks for looking!
