This week we are doing "fall"..... 
Well, I have to tell you, when you see this weeks project
it might scare you...lol!!
I had a ball making these!!
I love the look of vintage Halloween,
so this is where I headed with this one
I used 3 of the Prima tags and tied them together with twine
I covered each tag front and back with Halloween DS paper

I LOVE the paper the best on the first doll,
 it is sort of a Halloween toile
and look at her legs....spiders...love it...love it!!
The second one is my witch girl,
 the trim on her dress is from last years
Halloween clearance at Michaels..
see all those little mice at her feet???  EEEEEEEEEEK!!!!!
Where is her black cat when she needs it???
Oh wait, there it is, right next to her on the first tag!!!
And then we come to my bat girl...eerie, isn't she
but don't be frightened, it's only a "mask"...lol!!
I love her netting under her dress and her polka dot legs..
On the back I used the Tim Holtz Alterations "small easel" die
on each tag to stand them up!!
So now you need to head to my "teamies" "friends"
and see their stunning creations...
don't forget to win my blog candy, you will need to leave a
comment EACH week to be entered for the prize...it's that easy!!
Here is your lineup:

Diane, your designs just blew me away! They are so beautiful and creative. Our great minds think alike, but by putting yours on tags and linking them together brings them to a new level of awesomeness! (is that a word?) I love all the details on your tags, especially the spider's web, the little mice at her feet, and the scary mask! Thanks for all your inspiration!

What a trip for the halloween parade, Diane you did them up right and a lot of work went into them. I just love the tags. Can't wait to see what you come up with for winter next week. This has been fun.

Enderby said...

I love your easel. The first witch is my favorite too. On the background paper there is a black cat behind the spider stockings. It looks like he is scared of them. So much to see.

Thanks for sharing your talent.
