Happy October!

Hello, everyone. Can you believe it is already Oct. 1? Time is really flying. Hope you are all able to be creative.

It seems the more stress I have the more I cut and glue. It is hard to get started sometimes but once I start I can loose myself in the process. Which is a good thing. Better than therapy!

Ok, the reason you came by. Today I'm going to show you my haunted cottage. It's SVGCuts of course, The Enchanted Forest. God bless Mary and her how-to videos. I cut out all the pieces (and there are a lot of them) It takes me a long time studying her videos to be able to choose the right papers for each element. Some have a lot of layers. I've learned to take my time and not get in a hurry.

Watch each section, pause it and put mine together.. Takes a while but it really makes me feel good when it's done.

Take a look: (sorry, quite a few photos)



I tried to shoot each angle. I added all the bats, ghosts, jack-o-lanterns etc.

When I spend a lot of time and paper on a project it's hard for me to put it away. This one may have to be "Christmased" up a bit. Maybe a Charlie Brown Christmas tree, a few wreaths...

Anyway I like it. It looks really creepy cute with the battery tea lights turned on. When I get everything up and fixed  I'll take photos with everything lighted.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
