Halloween isn't my favorite. I'm not into the spooky, eerie, gremliny, witchy side of the day, but I do enjoy the Fall. It is such a pretty time of the year, so my focus turns to leaves, pumpkins, scarecrows, hayrides, apple pies :) ... So, Autumn Harvest (110372) is the only 'halloweenish' type set that I own - that little jack-o'latern face quickly lends itself to a halloween pumpkin. So my non-halloween friends out there, see what you can do :) A little versatility in your sets goes a long way! I did pair it with another non-Halloween set, Forest Friends(113748) to kreate my 'spooky' scene. I needed my Booo hootin' Owl :) A free hand tree and bats accented with my White Signo Pen help (?) to spook it up a bit. Ok I tried anyway... does cutesy spooky work?

A coordinating tag, kreated using the Big Shot and the Two Tags Die(115954), is attached to my container with glue dots, for presentation, of a sweet little treat. After you eat this yummy treat, pop off this tag and use it as a bookmark for your thrilling novel :) Don't you just love this 1-1/4" Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain ribbon (115616), bedazzled with an Circle Fire Rhinestone Brad(109110). My sentiments for each project come from Teeny Tiny Wishes(115370)

Or snip out your 'spooky' little jack o'laterns and add them to a box to fill with some yummy treats. This 'crate' is kreated with the Big Shot and Box #2 Die (114518)( 2 of them adhered together with Sticky Strip), Night and Day Specialty Paper (116768) , the Word Window Punch and Large Oval Punch. And that fabulous Wide Striped Pumpkin Pie Ribbon again . Oh the possibilities are always endless with the Big Shot :)

Hop on back to my blog this week, I will be showing you tutorials: how I kreated my scene through sponging and masking; I'll also show you how easy it is to put this cute little 'crate' together.
