My Halloween project for Altered Pages will be a kit in September, and I'll post pics here as soon as I'm allowed to :)

A Little Witchy Card for You

Image
Here's a little witch card I whipped up for Altered Pages 

 I LOVE this sheet of images from Altered pages.  It's all witches and a saying.  I'm actually using this sheet for a kit for Altered pages, too! The kit will be up next month, and is a quick project done on a 5x7 canvas board. You can add some ribbon to the back and hang it on the wall, or use one of Altered Pages' stick on easel backs.

This card was super quick to make.  Grey folded card with some Black Soot Distress Ink swiped on the edges. Black tulle wrapped around the card and knotted at the top. Blue corrugated card stock with Black Soot swiped over the surface.
Print the witch on white card stock, cut out, distress edges, and add to card with pop dots.

This trip was my first time on a plane. Pete has flown before for work. I was SUPER nervous, but excited, too! The flight to Orlando was fantastic- super smooth, about an hr and 20 minutes. I even talked to the pilot on the way off the plane, and thanked him for an 'uneventful first flight'.  He congratulated me and patted me on the back LOL



We spent 5 nights in the Caribbean Beach Resort. We only went to two parks- Epcot and Animal Kingdom. We took our time, shopped, moseyed around. No rushing, worrying about losing kids, an…
