August Papertreyink Blog Hop

Welcome everyone!  I'm so glad you are visiting my blog.  Can I just say that a paperbag was an unusually hard challenge for me?  ME!  The one who loves to alter everything!  With Halloween just around the corner, I finally decided I had to turn my bag into a haunted house.  Well, haunted(ish).  Once I got going, it turned into what I wanted pretty easily.  Nothing complex here.  Embossed the bat and embossed the broom.  I've had this color of Zing embossing powder for ages (used on the broom).  It is called Leaf.  Hmmph, not any leaf color I've ever seen but it looks great against black.  Does anyone else have issues with Zing ep being kind of on the chunky side?  I love PTI soooo much better and maybe I'm spoiled?

So, do you see the new pattern paper?  See the stamp set "Been Boo'd?  See the stamp set Home Made?  See my great scissor work on the bat?  See how I curved the window and door stamps to look "spooky"?  I'd ask if you can see that bow but it is mondo sized so I know you aren't missing it.  I'd love to know what you think!

Great haunted house! You did an amazing job. I find that Zing ep on the chunky side, too, which is probably why I don't use it that often either!
