Hauntingly Happy Halloween

Welcome back, everyone and Happy Friday! I sat down the other day and made 10 Halloween cards using the Pebbles Inc. Midnight Haunting 6x6 Paper Pad and Ephemera. First, let me say this, buy the whole collection next time, Lisa. I had so much fun creating with the gorgeous patterns and colors, I didn't want to stop. It's very addictive.  In my haste to get the cards in the post I only took time to photo my favorite.  I have to say, I can see me becoming ephemera girl, making cards with it so relaxing and easy. I was a little intimidated at first, I didn't want to cut my pretty paper. Once I started I couldn't stop.

Happy Haunts

Happy Friday! Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing a fiendishly fun take on the Cabana Milk Carton for Halloween candy. I love the files at SVG Attic because you can use them in so many different ways, makes crafting fun.
This Milk Carton from the CG Under the Sea Kit is super easy to assemble with minimal cutting, always a good thing when you are in a hurry. 

I used Echo Park Paper Co. Halloween Town Paper Kit for my project. The milk carton would a great Halloween party favor.
