Happy (early) Halloween!! I’m so excited to announce this weeks’ theme for the Always Fun Challenges blog. Have you figured it out yet?? It’s HALLOWEEN!!! I LOVE Halloween!! I’ve been working all month on getting our road closed to traffic on Halloween. Which, I’ve learned, requires an encroachment permit. That means I had to get signatures from every house on our entire street!! The good news is, the City has agreed to close it!! WOOHOO!! The population of Fort Bragg is a little less than 7,300 and we handed out candy to a little less than 1,300 kids last year… That’s just crazy!! No one knows why the entire town comes to this street for Halloween, but they do. And we LOVE IT!! It was just getting too dangerous to have vehicles driving up and down with that many kids. At some points while I was handing out candy last year, I looked up and the line was out into the middle of the street!! I wish I would have taken pictures, but we’re always soooo busy!! They start coming at about 4pm!! Here are a couple pix that I did manage to get from last year.
Speaking of Halloween, let’s talk about this card I made.
If you can’t tell by looking at this, I was greatly inspired by Vicky Papaioannou’s “Glowing Moon Technique” card. She does this background MUCH better than I, but I still had a lot of fun making this one. The card came together pretty easy. First I made the distress oxide background, and then I created the moon and placed my Silhouette witch (design ID #65963) over the top and lastly I added my sentiment. As you know, if you’ve read any of my posts or watched any of my videos lately, quick and easy are about all I have time for these days.
I added some Shimmer Spray to top it off. Can you see it? It looks really cool in person. Pictures just don’t show the cool details sometimes.
If you’d like to join us this week, just make something Halloween related and click here to add it to our challenge or go to the Always Fun Challenges blog and add it there. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a Spooktacular Halloween!!!
