Trick or Treat!

The Halloween Decor is out.

The Skeleton is at his post next to the front door.

The apples are on the counter waiting to be made into crisp.

The spooky music CD was located.

The Halloween cards are mailed.

My toes are painted black with orange glitter.

My costume has arrived and is ready to go.

I'm READY!  

Well, as ready as I ever am with a week still to go. 

I've still got a few things left to do:
I need to pick up some moccasins to go with my costume.  
We need to pick up our pumpkins for carving. 
I need to get some Rice Krispies for the Treats.
I need some sort of nut-free treat to take to school on Friday for my class.  
Oh, and I still need to get trick-or-treat candy...

Ok, so maybe I'm not ready, but at least all of my Halloween layouts from last year are done! 
(That's an accomplishment, right?)

I posted 2 a couple of weeks ago.  
(Click here  to see them)  

And now, here are the rest!

Could NOT wait to find a way to use this haunted tree.  Scary & cute all at the same time! 

 LOVE to use wiggle eyes.  Can you tell I've gone back to teaching preschool?  lol

 Photos just don't do this one justice.  I used a cute Stampin' Up spider web wheel stamp to do the background.  It looks great in person, but I just couldn't get it to show in the pictures.

 Supplies: Cardstock: DCWV, Patterned Paper: K& Co. , Stickers & Sticker Borders: K & Co., Witch Stamp: Inkadinkadoo, Bat Buttons: Favorite Findings, Ric Rac: Wrights, Misc. Trim: Unknown, Cricut Cartridge: Happy Hauntings, Stickles and, of course, wiggle eyes!

I've got to say, I'm love love LOVING this Happy Hauntings cartridge.  It was one that I liked but really didn't think I needed.  I bid on an Ebay auction with a super-low top price, and, to my surprise, won.  Guess it was fate.  We were meant to be together.  A cartridge that I didn't think I needed and I've used it way more than others that I HAD to have.  Maybe Ebay knows me better than I know myself....
Anyway, I've still got a week to get the rest of the things on my Halloween To-Do list done.  
Including watching "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" and, my personal favorite, "Hocus Pocus".  (Does one ever outgrow Bette Midler & Sarah Jessica Parker up as 300 year old witches?)
I'll let you know how it goes!

Hope your Haunting is a Happy one!!
