What are your traditions?

Do you have a fun fall or Halloween tradition??

I do.  I have a big porch and I love, love, love to decorate it.
I buy hay bales, gourds & corn stalks.  I collect pumpkins and fall leaves.
I have bushel baskets full of pine-cones and fall pics.
Then I arrange it all into a little scene and I kinda just wanna hang
out there.  It's so inviting.

Today we have projects/layouts inspired by
Fall & Halloween & Traditions!

Witch Hat 
by Jolanda Meurs
 Check out the Bo Bunny Blossoms on this hat....
 Tip: Punch out about 12 circles. Fold them in half and glue them together until you get this Pumpkin.
 Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned paper: Apple Cider Stripe
Blossoms: Natural Earth Pansy/Harvest Orange Daisy

Trick O Trunk
Debbie Sherman
 Journaling reads: Trunk O Treating is a tradition that has been in this family for years!
Designer tip: Using patterned paper to make embellishments for your layout is an 
easy way to make your layout coordinate. Cut out the patterns and pop them up 
with foam squares to give them dimension.

Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Apple Cider Hickory, Apple Cider, Afternoon, Pumpkin Patch, Dot
Cardstock: Double Dot in Licorice Dot
Brads: Apple Cider
Flowers: Apple Cider Market Petals
Chipboard: Apple Cider 12 x 12, Apple Cider Layered Chipboard

Unforgettable Halloween 
Juliana Michaels

 Designer Tip: The spiders were cut from black cardstock using a die cut machine. I then applied a layer of glossy accents. While this "glue" was still wet, I sprinkled a combination of fine and chunky black glitter on them. Once dry, I adhered them to the layout using double sided foam tape for more dimension. I also added glossy accents to the letters on the title sticker. Another technique I used was to remove the center of the Serenity Trinkets and replaced them with a top of a brad. I used wire cutters to remove the prongs on the brad to make it easier to attach them
 Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Bounty/Apple Cider; Enchanted/Enchanted
Cardstock: Dot Journal in Grape and Double Dot in Licorice
Stickers: Follow Your Heart Cardstock Stickers/Enchanted
Chipboard: Enchanted 12 x 12
Blossoms: Plum Purple Bouquet, Plum Purple Daisy
Trinkets: Serenity
Brads: Bo Bunny

Halloween Teacher Treats
By Sarah Eclavea
Tips: I wanted to create a more sophisticated Halloween treat for my daughter's teachers so I created these candy bar wrappers. I kept them simple so I can create a lot quickly. They could also be used as thank you gifts or place holders.

Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Afternoon, Stripe/ Apple Cider
Chipboard: 12x12/ Apple Cider
Stickers: Combo/ Apple Cider
Cardstock: Licorice/ Double Dot
