Halloween Shadowboxes

Well if you've been following my blog for any length of time you will remember that a few months ago I bought 4 white 8x8 shadowboxes. I managed to get 3 scrapbooking pages done and put in the boxes. Then I went back to work in September after a year off on maternity leave. Going back to work with 2 toddlers at home is very busy and spare time is very precious. Anyway, I have been running several ideas around in my head about what to put in those shadowboxes next. They are hanging above the fireplace in my living room and I've been trying to decorate for Thanksgiving next week and for Halloween. So I had lots of ideas buzzing around in my head this morning when I found myself awake at 8am and heard no sounds from my children's rooms. I actually had an hour and a half this morning to play in my scrap room. If the image above looks very familiar, see my post below. I actually took that idea and altered the colours a bit to more earthy tones. The paper is all from K&Co. Next to Stampin' Up! DSP, I think that they have the best paper ever! I used the Big Shot to cut out the large scallop and then stamped the leaves from the Earth Elements palette. The pumpkins are all cut out using various sized circle punches and then stamped with the jack-o-lantern face from Holiday Blitz. The owl, cat, bat, and sentiments are all from the Halloween Frights stamp set (see your mini catty ladies!) and the tree and leaves are from the Season of Friendship set (again in the holiday mini). I used a flower punch from Boho Blossoms to make the stems and leaves on the pumpkins. Tomorrow I'll show you another of these boxes that I made. I'm feeling very Martha Stewarty as I decorate my home for the holidays. (at least I can pretend right?)
