Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone...we have reached 31 October and there will be lots of knocks on my door tonight with the local children trick or treating. I didn't really get into Halloween until Daisy was born. My children are too old for it to have been part of their childhood. However I do make them up a little treat bag tied with one of my Halloween tags. Daisy and Jack have Halloween books as neither eat chocolate (yet).

I bought Jack Meg and Mog
 and Daisy the new Julia Donaldson book.
These are the chocolate treats for my big kids....spooky chocolate!

Popped into bags and tied with one of my handmade tags.
I am sharing my last Halloween 2017 tag today.
It's the tag below which is for Jack. We call him our little Pumpkin King so it's right that his featured pumpkins.
The image is one of my sadly no longer available Nicecrane digis. I stamped lots of spiders on the backing card and layered up with a mixed media die but plus some other spooky ones. I stamped my Tim Holtz skull onto book pages and added one of my mixed media leaves. 
I would like to enter Jack's Halloween tag into the following challenges;

A vintage journey crazy for autumn colour
Simon says stamp Wednesday anything goes
Emerald Creek Dares Freaky fun
Frilly and Funkie 2/3 trick or treat my treat is that there is a real treat (Jack's book) that it is attached to and I also made some matching gift wrap.
Noor UK fall colours
Cupcake Inspirations orange, green, brown

This is my matching stamped wrapping paper...here is Jack's pressie all ready to open.

and here are Jack and Daisy's gifts together.
So that's me done for Halloween 2017, no more Halloween crafting until next year.
I have my head down now for my most favourite time of the year..yes Christmas is only 54 days away.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm back in the morning as it's 1 November and time for our new challenge over at Country View.

Nearly time for the witching hour....have fun 👻
Bye for now,

  1. Wow, look at all the wonderful treats all ready to go for Halloween! Loving those tags Jane! There's so many great elements, ghosts and skeletons and haunted houses, BOO! lol. I'm curious if that witch sign is a pub? If so, do they use that sign all year round or just this time of year? Have fun tonight! hugs :)
