Jaydee chose Halloween for our challenge this week at The Paper Players:
I love Halloween!
I was just out shopping today at Home Goods and Marshals and you would not believe the people buying Halloween stuff there! Carts were full of wood pumpkins, fall wreaths, and all kinds of knick knacks. I almost joined in, but I was in a hurry and just grabbed what I needed and left. Then I had a quick stop at Target, and people were already buying Halloween candy. Well, I did join in on that and bought a bag..or two...
Halloween is a fun time and how I used to love to take my kids trick or treating around the neighborhood! Fun times.
Actually, I loved going myself when I was a kid.
BUT there was a house that I never would go trick or treat too, it was big and old, and well, just scary to me, I guess. It was definitely not haunted, but I guess I must have thought it was. One of my friends always went there, and said they gave out the BIG Hershey bars, not the fun size. While that WAS tempting, I still never got up enough courage to go there. How silly of me! Not that long ago, I drove by that house, and I really have no idea why I was so afraid of it! I was a funny kid.
I used SU's Holiday Home set to make the haunted house for this card, which reminded me of the house I would never go trick or treat at when I was little! I combined all three houses to make one larger size one, and added a couple of ghosts and bats. It's not a very scary haunted house, I kept the colors bright and fun.
