The Farm is Getting Ready for Halloween Preview

Please scroll down for my Sparkle Creations Challenge post.

Can you believe Halloween is around the corner? Where has this year gone? Do you and/or your little ones have costumes picked out? What was your favorite costume as a kid? I had a knack for mish-mashing costumes. One year I dressed up as a witch but had rainbow clown hair coming out of my hat. I wish I had a picture of that. Then the another year I think I wore one of those plastic smocks that had a smurf body on it with a King Kong mask. Those costumes must have been hand-me downs from cousins because I'm sure my parents wouldn't have bought two fits. Now that I have my own house we always hand out a snack pack of Sour Patch Kids and Swedish fish. The kids just love those. We normally have about 150 kids come to the nighborhood.

Okay back to the real reason you are here. The Greeting Farm is releasing Halloween Digis on Wednesday and the DT wanted to bring you some inspiration with all those peeks that you saw earlier on the Farm blog. My card uses a Creeper Halloween Bride. Isn't she just a scream? This is my first green skin and I must say that I really like how it turned out. I paired this ghoulish gal with some fabby Pink Paiselee paper. I did add some Clear Stardust gelly roll to the white part of her hair. Of course that was a bit hard to capture on camera.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please join us tomorrow for some Halloween Release day fun. In the mean time go visit the rest of the Farmers listed in my sidebar for some more sweet treat inspirations.
