Good afternoon everyone.  First I would like to say how much it means to me to have you visiting and leaving comments these past 5 weeks.  Today is the BIG day!  The DOOZIE of a project is complete.  Before I show you how all the elements came together, here are the lyrics to all the files used:

I used the following files:
  • Silly Halloween Palz 2012
  • Happy Haunting Palz 2012
Through using up almost all of my scraps and the big yellow paper disaster (i still do not like yellow paper), having hands that are rough and have paper cuts I believe that this project is the BEST!  I have a beautiful project that I can use for Halloween and Thanksgiving! (just a warning that this is pic heavy

 So without further ado....THE DOOZIE REVEAL

During the week, I made the banner.  I used the basic shapes and gallery from Make The Cut.  It was all cut on Recollections paper.  Then at the points I put in groments and threaded through bright orange 1/4" ribbon.  For a first banner it turned out nice!  

Here are the elements of the mantel close up.

So there you have it!  The DOOZIE of a project is complete.  I had a lot of fun and some problems along the way.  But that is what crafting is all about.  Trial and error is what helps us become better crafters. 

That's it for this project.  I am working on a few cards, a crochet project and I really need to settle on a design for the 30+ Christmas cards I need to send out starting late November.  Thank you all for following along and remember if you have comments or questions, feel free to leave a message.

Very Bright Blessings, Jana
