Bug A Boo!!!


.......and after.

This was done for another challenge over at Mothers and Daughters Creations. The challenge was to create an altered Halloween project that incorporated pictures.

Jaiden was a ladybug for Halloween in 2005 and then in 2006 Jacob got the costume as a "hand me down". I thought it would be kind of nice, to have both of their pictures together on the same project.
The spider was cut out of some thick chipboard, in three sections, the head, the left set of legs and the right set. Then I used some glittered cardstock to cover each section.

Supply list:
Patterned paper - Pink Paislee and Basic Grey
Lace cardstock - KI Memories, Glittered cardstock - Doodlebug Designs
Chipboard - Basic Grey (leaves and bottom section of hat), Fancy Pants (scroll) Heidi Swapp (letters), raw chipboard (to make the top section of the hat and the spider).
Journaling tags - K & Company
Letter stickers - Making Memories
Bling - Me and My Big Ideas
Other - Buttons, wire, embroidery floss and waxed twine.

A few more pictures of my little "bug a boo's"
If I don't post anything before Friday, have a fun and safe Halloween!!!
