Halloween Banners and Swap Items

I made this Halloween banner from Halloween Paper, Letters were cut on my Cricut. Various Halloween characters and stickers. The garland is homemade. I made it out of two rows of Crepe Paper. The Banner takes up the whole wall in my front room.

This is the first third of the banner, it says Trick. I had to break the banner in thirds so that I could get pictures of it. There is also the crepe paper garland hanging from the tips of each triangle on the banner.

Here is the center of the banner, saying "OR" Ghost and spiders on these banners.

The last third of the banner says, Treat. Looks so pretty in the orange and the black, with glittery stickers and embellishments.

Here are a couple of the letters so that you can see them close up.
Spooky Apron Swap
All my wonderful goodies that I received from Tammy. I love the apron, pot holder, and Trick or Treat Bag. Then she sent me extras: Pumpkin Candy Pez Dispenser, Pumpkin Candle, and A Can of Candy.

Beautiful Fall Pumpkins with trims of fall polka dots.
The reverse side has Witches brooms, Hats, Boots, and stars also trimmed with the same fall polka dots. Soooooooooooo lovely, I just love the apron with matching potholder.

She also threw in these Wax Fangs and Pumpkin Pez Dispenser.

This is the coolest candy gift container that I think I have received in a long time. It was filled full of Chocolates and various candies.

I will not reveal how she filled it just yet. I am going to give it to some others.

Next will be some sneak peaks of Tammy's goodies, can't show the pics yet because I have to wait to hear that she has her package.

Here is her package all wrapped up. I hope she enjoys everything. I had a blast getting it all together for her.

A couple sneak peaks. I hope I haven't gave too much away!!!

Sorry for such a long post, but wanted to get all of this posted.

Thanks for stopping by

Do you know that I have a Cricut, new and in the box, that I have never opened??? I got it last year for Christmas and stopped scrapbooking after I started blogging at the first of the year. Now, I am a little nervous about tearing into it.

I am going to VERY soon!
