Time sure has a way of slipping right by!!!!! September is almost over. WOW!!!!

 I have been busy doing some Fall cleaning and haven't done much crafting recently.
I did however join a Halloween partner swap. I am not really into Halloween but thought I should try it anyway.
I made an accordion mini album in a tin , a Halloween layout and some pumpkin jars.
I just added a few mats and some embellies to the mini.

 For the layout, I used the Artbooking cartridge for the spiders, the web and the photo mat. I used stickles on the web, added google eyes on the spiders, popped them up and hung them with floss. I also used some black embossing powder around the mat.

The pumpkins are jelly jars that I paint with orange and black features. When I went to apply the 2nd coat, it just peeled off the first.!!!! I finally got it to work after painting twice with Gesso!!! They look really cool with a  flickering tea light inside.
So that is the extent of my Halloween projects!!!!!!!
I am still working on things for the craft show in Dec and making Cards for Soldiers.
Christmas swaps are posted on the Cricut MB so I will be starting those soon.
Hubby and I will be going to Nashville soon!!!! We have never been and I especially am looking forward to it.  My Christmas present I think. :)
