Our Halloween Candy Jar


I made this jar several years ago when I was on the FiberMark dt. That was a fun gig. Anyways, I sort of went nuts with punches and dies and the lovely FiberMark textured papers, plus a few DoodleBug stickers thrown in for good measure.

This jar is sooooo very me. Mini scenes, some with a little macabre humor, and loads of color and texture. Not surprisingly it was never picked up for publication. I guess the decapitated paper dolls were too much. Heck! The dolls are not even holding their bloody dripping heads the way they were in a haunted house scrapbook layout that I did years ago.

BTW, the freshman received her Halloween package and loved it. I'm a cool mom once again. Go me! And she HAD read my blog after all, but at least the rest of the package was a big surprise. Best yet is that it arrived and was opened in time for Halloween.

Thanks for visiting today.
