Happy Halloween





Hello everyone and Happy Halloween if you celebrate it. Halloween isn't an enormous celebration in England but judging by how the supermarkets have been marketing it this year, they obviously intend it to be! We always celebrated it in some way when my children were little, usually by spooking up the porch and having some creepy food, but trick or treating was not common. These days we get a stream of extremely cute little ones from the neighbourhood calling, so I like to make a few treats for them.

This year I made a Halloween Lumier on my my Silhouette Cam using a cut from the Silhouette store

I love how each face is a little different



I decided not to put coloured card in the windows, and instead used white vellum and placed a battery tea light inside, which gives that lovely orange glow. I was going to enter it into the current Cameo Spotlight challenge but left it too late.

I also made some chocolate cupcakes and iced them with fondant icing so they will be easy to carry and I stamped some cake toppers to go on them.


These will go with the treat boxes I made from one of the Papertrey Ink Favor it dies,  to make hanging favours to put on a little tree that I usually use at Easter, but  thought looked ghostly enough for Halloween with the help of a few skeletons.


 And now I need only wait for it to go dark and for the doorbell to start ringing!


Thanks for stopping by
