Halloween Countdowns

Happy Wednesday!

As the Spooky Halloween Countdown I made for my brother last year was such a big hit, I made two slightly different versions this year for the girls that live behind my mother.

I can report that this year's Halloween Countdowns were also a big hit! Here is a picture of the two Countdowns together:


I used the Creations by AR Dessert Cage template and altered the top to resemble a chimney. The instructions for the countdown boxes can be found on last year's post.

The grey Halloween Countdown is Chloe's:




This Halloween Countdown is Katie's:




Embellishing the Halloween Countdowns was so much fun. The Days 'til Halloween sentiment was created in Word.

I am entering the Halloween countdowns in the following challenges:

Score-Pal "More Than One Score" Challenge #9 - Fall/Halloween
I hand-cut the Creations by AR Dessert Cage templates and used my Score-Pal for all the scores on the template pieces and for the countdown boxes.

The Sizzix Challenge / Halloween!
I used the following Sizzix products:  Lollipop Numbers Dies, Originals Ghost #2 Dies, and Sizzlet Skeleton.

I hope you enjoyed my Spooky Halloween Countdowns as much as I enjoyed making them and as much as the girls enjoyed receiving them!

Thanks for stopping by!



Supplies used:  SU Basic Black, Old Olive, and Very Vanilla CS, Bazzill CS, Bo Bunny PP, Versafine Onyx Black Ink, EKSuccess Pumpkin and Spider Punches, MS Bat, Drippy Goo, Grass, Spider Web, and Spooky Fence Punches, IO Tall Grass Die, Spellbinders Headstone Dies, Marianne Designs Lamppost Die, Sizzix Lollipop Numbers and Originals Ghost #2 Dies, Sizzlet Skeleton, and PTI Mr. Bones Stamp Set.

Oh gosh Lisa these are so cute! I love the fact that they remind me of a circus wagon and the embellishments are perfect! Thanks for playing in our Halloween/Fall challenge at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal and Good Luck!
