eek

I'm not a huge Halloween fan. I don't decorate very much and usually put all my creative energy into my kids' Halloween costumes. But this year...I have seen so many cute, easy Halloween decorations floating on there in cyberspace that I have actually gotten really excited about decorating. Here is one of the ideas I came across, tweaked to my tastes.

The original idea was found here, but instead of using newspaper and printer, I used some Scenic Route Paper Co. green polka dot paper and black chipboard letters from my stash and a $1 triple photo frame from my local Dollar Tree. I already have blocks that spell "boo" so I elected for "eek". I love the way it turned out!

I love your framed word! You did a great job on it, too. I know what you mean about Halloween, too. I've always stayed on the harvest side of Oct.31, but since blogging, it's absolutely impossible to do! (Too many fantastic, cute ideas out there!)

I thought I'd stop by and visit your blog, and am so glad I did! :) Have a great night! :)

I saw this also and darn it if the Dollar Tree in Lincoln was out of those frames. I love the polka dot green paper- is that Lasting Impressions?

How does next week sound for getting together- I only have to sub on Friday.

How clever. I love the spider- too cute. Halloween is my favorite holiday. No gifts or pressure- just food and fun!

You're so darn clever Amber. Seriously. These costumes you're about to make for your kids. Don't even tell me every last hand-sewn detail. 'Cause Target, you know, they kinda made me BUY these horrible character-ones for my kids. They made me. Really.
