Just for fun!

Look at me! TWO posts in one day!  Don't think that will happen again!  Anyway, in trying to keep up the momentum, I have one more thing to share with you today... this was was made just for fun, and just for me :)

Don't you just love that crackled distressed frame??!!  I sure did.  Since I didn't have a picture to go in it, I decided to make a fun little shabby project with some of my leftover products from last Halloween.  The girl and the pumpkin are a rubon that I cut out, (sorry, can't remember the manufacturer!), the leaves around the flower are a gorgeous stamp from Heartfelt Creations that I stamped onto a page from a paperback book!  (And that's my newest fave technique!)  I have so many old paperbacks lying around, some are even duplicates so I really don't feel bad about ripping them up!  The angel wings are from Memrie Mare's Etsy shop, the chandelier rub on and the background pp is Pink Paislee's "Hocus Pocus" collection from 2010.  Added some different strokes of cream and black paint around the edges to further the distressed look.  And the Oct 31st rub-ons on the bottom right??  Well, they were soooooo old, that when I tried to use them they broke off all over!  But hey, it's a 'happy little accident' right?!  All in all, I'm happy with it for the minimal amount of time I spent on it, and the fact it's just going in my craft room :)

Take care my crafty friends, and OHhhh, one more thing - I'm going to tease you a bit, and let you know that I am planning a pretty substantial blog candy!  I have been lucky enough to win quite a lot of prizes this year, and am so excited to give back a little!  I'm still in the planning/gathering stages so stay tuned! (Hopefully 1-2 wks I'll have it posted!)
