Halloween Panorama

Oh you guys just thought I fell off the face of the earth huh?  I do so many other things besides craft that it is now just when I have time.  That's ok right?  haha!

Thank you all for the kind words about my daughter getting into nursing school.  She is so ecstatic!  She will start in January.

Well, I have a little fun project to show you that I had an absolute BALL creating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't decorate for Halloween or anything (I do give the kiddos candy if they come to my door), but normally other than that I don't have anything to do with the event.  I do LOVE Fall though! So anyhow, I saw this super cute project on Jim, The Gentleman Crafter's blog, and had to give it a whirl, so I asked a super sweet blog friend if she celebrates Halloween and it just so happened to be her birthday also, so I will be shipping this project to her along with a surprise.  Jim was so kind as to give a video on how he made this.  Don't you just love those people that show you videos and tutorials for FREE?  I mean, the guy is a genuis with crafting, like another Tim Holtz or something! Please go see what he made, you will not be disappointed!  Check it out!

 This was done according to the video he made.  I used a cylinder from Hobby Lobby and cut out the circle.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I cut a spider web from my Paperdolls Cartridge from Cricut.
 I used the super sweet image from Saturated Canary called Witchies.  The three didn't fit very well in the circle so I cut one off and set her on the outside.  I actually like how that worked out.

The paper is from Hobby Lobby and I used the Iron Gate MS Punch for the border punch.

Here is what it looks like with the lights out.  It has a nice little glow from the battery powered tealight in the background.  Sooooooo fun!!!!!

Most of my supplies are from Hobby Lobby.  I picked out all sorts of knobs and stuff to make the feet and fenial.  Oh, and the piece on top of the lid is a hexagon box. 

I hope you like this project. I am entering into the Saturated Canary Challenge, which is looking for "Dotty".  My dots are on the paper inside the panorama can you see it?  I would like to thank Jim so much for the inspiration.  I am now making a Christmas one with my darling LOTV stamps.  Stay tuned, it may be a few weeks though!

Thank you all for visiting me, I truly appreciate it!

Have a wonderful day!
