Another scarey page

The challenge this week on SLYMI over on UKS was to scrap something you are scared of, readers of this post will recall my fear of the 8 legged creatures. In fact, as a bit of aversion therapy, I've kept the LO blu-tacked up in the kitchen for longer than usual so i can get used to seeing this hideous beast!

Imaginisce papers, Core'dinations cardstock, embossed with a Halloween cuttlebug folder and sanded, journalling paper punched with a Stampin' Up punch, inked and distressed. I also made good use of my loop punches, and after a bit of practice found them easy to use. For a change, I used the computer to generate the title, i found the font on Dafont (called 'Awaken'), installed it and printed it in Word on Acetate. I didn't have a stamp set or a die that would produce this spooky type title, so i had to print it.....can't help thinking i might have cheated a bit!

The kids went Trick or Treating last night, and came back with a good haul (all eaten now!), and Hannah got to wear the longed for red coat that i took her to buy yesterday. She has wanted this coat since seeing it in Matalan early in the Autumn, and as we are so short of cash i couldn't justify the cost of it. So she saved her allowance (for the first time ever) and bought it herself. Won't do her any harm i think :)

Firts day on supply tomorrow... wish me luck!

Finally, the multi talented Caroline here is posting a months worth of projects on her blog this November, starting today, take a look to see what she's been up to today!

That is a scary LO Ann! I'm terrified of the blighters too!
Well done to Hannah on saving her allowance to buy her coat and good luck to you for your supply job tomorrow.
