Monster Mash

It's "Monster Mash" week over on the Imaginisce blog and I have 2 projects to share. First up, a little Halloween decor!
To make the cute witches hat, I rolled the 12x12 paper into a cone shape, then cut off the excess edge from the bottom so it would sit level. I added the cone to a small circle cut from matching paper, then adhered to a larger black cardstock circle. I embellished the front of the hat, and added the flying bat with a pipe-cleaner


I also made this layout to remember the year Tucker was Harry Potter.
I die cut the chevron/zig zag designs directly from my base paper using my cricut, then backed it with a coordinating paper. I also cut a small chevron design and added it in between the larger shapes. I did a little layering of the Ghoulish Delights Die Cuts at the corner of my photo, then added the funny little  flying bat. A small piece of foam tape behind his wings will keep the dimension even after the layout is in my scrapbook

As always, thanks for stopping by!
