Happy Halloween Tree

Good morning all!

Well, first off I just have to say that the pictures I took of today's project do NOT do it enough justice as to how stinkin cute it really is! This is one of my Halloween projects, at the beginning of October I'll set up my Halloween decorations on the table in my foyer-and this will be my new addition.I bought the little tree at Hobby Lobby for $4.99. Then scallop punched orange and black. I used every image in the Batty for You set to make ornaments. I LOVE THAT set!!!!! Okay, and my newest find-stamping and scraping supplies from the queen herself-Martha-at Micheal's. (Can just say-SHUT UP!-great another place for me to spend $-between Stampin' Up, Paper Trey, and Martha, the money is flying out the window!) Whoa, back to my point, I bought the ribbon that is going around the tree (it says Happy Halloween) and the colored baker's ribbon (to hang the ornaments) from Martha's line. Honest to goodness, I spent an hour and 15 minutes in the first two isles at Micheal's looking at the Martha stuff. Came out with just the ribbon (for now), shows a lot of restraint!
I wish you could see it in real life, it is so CUTE! My 8 year old came home from school and saw it and said "Mom, that is just fabulous! How do you always just whip this stuff up while we are at school?" THAT's a boy saying that-So cute!!! I have to say, he is my biggest fan, always sayin how GREAT my stuff is. Which is really cute because my boys are ALL boy, football, baseball, mud, deer hunting, etc., so it's always sweet to me when he likes my "girly" stuff. Okay, enough kid blah, blah, blah-I really try hard to not do to much of that on this blog. Anyway, have a great day. I'm off to shampoo my living room carpet before the mailman brings my new Paper Trey stuff (I hope today)!
