The Paper Girls Challenge #210 - Getting Ready For Halloween

 Hello, everyone! Happy Monday to you! I hope your weekend was a good one and that you are ready for the new week. 

It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Girls Challenge blog today and we are teaming up with the gals at Double Trouble!

First up is our challenge - Karrie is challenging us to show how we are getting ready for Halloween. Are you making decorations, cards, candy apples, homemade costumes? Are you getting old photos scrapped? Decorating your planner? This challenge is wide open - just show what you've got going on for this spooky season!

Now, if you choose to play along with the gals at Double Trouble here is what you will need to do:

Thing 1: Trouble Maker
says, "We again have Bats in our Belfry. Don't be afraid... Come Bat... Let's hang out! All you have to do is use at least three (3) colors, from our rainbow of Fall Bat Colors, and create a project. Colors: Purple, Green, Blue, Orange, Yellow, Red, Brown and Neutrals, Gold and Silver, are free to use.
You can stop here...
OR, you can choose to include Twisted Sister's Optional Twisted Twist below.
Thing 3: Twisted Sister
says, "Now don't go batty... our twist this time is twisted DON'T INCLUDE ANY BATS on your project, instead let's dress it up and include spooky cute Halloween images i.e. Ghosts, Witches, Skeletons, Pumpkins, just to name a few."
This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you have excluded bats from your project.

Be sure to link up over on their blog, too!

I think I have managed to do all three challenges for my Halloween card! I like to make a few Halloween cards to send out so the timing of this challenge was perfect and was just what I needed to get started!

To satisfy the Double Trouble challenges - I used at least 3 of the colors from their rainbow of fall bat colors - orange, green, black, white, and the star paper has some purple stars on it, and I did not include any bats on my project - just cute little jack-o-lanterns!

I used Echo Park's - I Love Halloween - 6x6 paper pad and sticker sheet for this card. I bought this paper pad this year because I was a little tired of the Halloween paper pads that I had in my stash. I am happy to say that I have already used almost half of this paper pad! Maybe I will get a few more cards made and get it {mostly} used up!

Be sure to stop by The Paper Girls Challenge Blog to see how the rest of the design team is getting ready for Halloween and be sure to stop by the Double Trouble Challenge Blog to see their beautiful creations! I hope you have some time to play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a great day!
