Boo Villa

Can Halloween be shabby? I guess ...This is for the the Shabby Tearoom I wanted to create a tag you could use to embellish a goodie bag, so what do you think?

Halloween is coming pretty soon.  To me it means a chance to create homemade decorations for the house, costumes for the kids and a chance to walk around the neighborhood.  And greet old friends while enjoying a sugar rush with my kids.

My new Halloween house needed a name, how about Boo Villa.   Maya Road new border stamps are just too much, I wanted to see if I could create a banner with them and sure enough if you bend the stamp it gives and produces a gorgeous, rich image of a perfect doily.  I also decided to try a new spin on the traditional windows and used the MR Foundations cb to create a perfect oval where you could peek into the bats inhabitants.  I also framed the window  with some MR ruffle trim. 
For the entrance wreath I used the negative space of the MR foundation for suppot and topped it with MM witches hat.  As you can see there is new and old Halloween collections together, nicely blended by Making Memories.
The entrance had to be grand and so I framed it using the MR decorative scrolls I used potions acrylic paint by MM and Doodlebug glitter to frost it. The roof gets a special touh with Martha Stewart's new spider web punch.

And to finish it off what could be better than to have a game of paper dolls for your kids?  Using MM toil & Trouble die cut page.
