The lineup of talent is amazing and I am so happy
to have you joining all of us.

If you arrived her from Robin Lane's Blog, then you are right on track.
If you just stumbled in and want to start
from the beginning,
head over to My Cricut Craft Room!

For my project, I decided to focus on the Halloween
elements and created a few fun party items.

A lot of the items were from my stash.
I used some packaging from a kid's toy set (old cardboard),
leftover cuts from Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up,
and some fun Spider Web borders that my
SFF, Heather Lynn cut for me during her
last visit to my house.

I started by grabbing some old
papers by Graphic 45 - Hallowe'en in Wonderland
and My Mind's Eye - Stella and Rose
to make my fun party hats. 
 The party hats were cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge 
at fit to page (7") and then adhered together using my ATG Gun.
 I strung some fun 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon 
through the hole in the top and knotted it from the inside.
I added a fun trim using some Orange BOO Ribbon

The linked chain was created by
cutting orange, green, and black card stock
into 1" x 6" strips.  
 I used my Teresa Collins Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker
for 2 of my Web Border strips.  
Once that was done, they were placed on the strips, then I sprinkled
some chunky orange and fine gold dust glitter on to the webs.
I glued all of the links together to create the chain
with my Hot Glue Gun.

To allow the little Dress Up Frankenstein, Pumpkin Girl, and Ghost
stand upright, I simple took a 2" circle (leftover from my
table decor piece) as a "stand".  I folded it
in half then glued a portion of it
to the foot of the doll.

For my Table Decor Art Piece,
I used an old piece of cardboard that was already tri-folded.
 When the outer flaps were drawn inward,
the front measured 4 5/8" x 6"

 I used a strip of wood grain card stock
to bring the two flaps together in the back.
 A few small scraps to cover the ends.

 I had a leftover piece of leaf card stock, that
just so happened to fit the entire "frame", front and
back, perfectly.

After covering it with card stock, 
and adhering the two flaps together in the back,
it now became a free-standing "frame".
I then cut a bunch of 2" circles 
from the leftover Graphic 45 and MME paper.
I placed them on the 4 5/8" x 6" front
of the cardboard in rows,  staggering the colors
of the double sided papers.

I added the small ghost and pumpkin cuts (leftovers from 
previous cuts with the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge as well)
onto the front and outlined each of them with glitter
 (Stardust Stickles and Orange Studio G)

I am not sure of the brand
of the foam alphas, but they too, are from my stash.

I hope you enjoyed my project and now
it is time to Hop over to the Wonderful
