Halloween Altered Printer's Tray!

Good morning to you my friends! It is Wednesday already and almost half way through the work week! : ) I picked up a mini printer's tray at Hobby Lobby earlier this month and decided to decorate it for Halloween. I love these new papers by MME, Mischievous line! I love the softness to them and their vintage feel. I used my Cricut Expression and the Happy Hauntings cartridge to cut the pumpkins. I popped the second one up using a dimensional foam circle. I added a few leaves that I cut using the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge, some buttons and twine. I added a bit of Spanish moss for my pumpkins to rest on!
These are my two goofy guys last year with their finished masterpieces!

......and my girl dressed as Hannah Montana! Is she rocking that wig or what?! ; )

I used a paper drinking straw to hang my lil' banner from. I bought a bunch of them and now am dreaming up ways to use 'em! The owl image is by Crafty Secrets. I enclosed it in a Melissa Frances frame and added crackle accents to it.

In my house, Halloween wouldn't be complete without taking some silly pictures of my dog in his costume. This year we opted for a squirrel! Doesn't he look absolutely thrilled?

......such a good sport my Skippers!

I am so glad you stopped by! I appreciate your visits!!!

Hope your day is wonderful!

Love the shadowbox.
Now, poor Skipper. We have a resident squirrel and he drives my dogs crazy. If I dressed them up as one, I would be torturing them, hah.
