For some reason blogger wouldn't let me save and publish yesterday, so here we go today.
Yesterday was so much fun! I tried my hand at making costumes for the kids for the first time ever. It was more expensive for Lexie's, but there was a lot of detail in her Mad Hatter inspired costume:
Bella was easier. A kitty. She just wanted to be a kitty. But not ANY kitty- no, kitty soft paws. But not the Killy Softpaws from the Dreamworks franchise, the kitty softpaws who belongs to our neighbours and her best friend-lol. Do you know how hard it is to find a cat costume for someone who isn't a toddler? Hard- that's how hard! lol. So we bought a black shirt, white mittens, cat makeup and ears/tail combo. She's a pretty kitty if I do say so myself!
NOW putting my crafty skills to work for paper crafting Halloween fun- I used Stampin' Up!'s Stocking Bigz die to create witches boots. I wanted this die since last year, but didn't get it til now. I made a beautiful Christmas stocking (will show later! lol) and then I wondered what to do with it for Halloween- how to make it witchy.... WELL someone else on the SU! team had the same idea and created a wonderful tutorial that I picked up and tried out. I made 2 on each side and put a 220.127.116.11x4 inch box between them to make a cutsie container:
