The Saga of the Halloween Invitations

Dear Reader,

Around this time each year I become consumed with our annual Halloween party.  For some reason I spend an inordinate amount of time on the invitations...they become the bane of my existence for a while until I finally, finally send them out.  This year was no exception.  I began trying to come up with a concept for them this summer (I was hoping to be ahead of the curve for once!).  I thought I knew what I was going to do, but no I of course had to change my mind. 

Finally, Rhonna Designs came to the rescue (and some older frames from Rhonna through House of 3).  I bought the lovely Spooky Junque Banner Kit and it was finally the answer to my invitation design woes.  Back in August I drew up some characters for my invitations and I finally figured out how to use them with the banners.  Also, I bought some products from Martha Stewart, stamps from Lawn Fawn and some other digital products from Jen Allyson (Vintage Findings Halloween Collection and Vintage Findings Halloween Apothecary Labels)and they became the basis of the invitations.  Another fun addition was a frame by One Little Bird Designs.

Here is a little sneak of the invitations, courtesy of my cell phone:

Wishing everyone a very spooky and splendid Halloween!

Happy {haunting} and creating,
