Christmas Cards

Billie here with five Christmas cards and a gift box  in preparation of the fast-approaching holiday season!  Where oh where did the year go!?!? 
This is all of the cards and the gift box shown together.

If you click this red & brown card, you’ll see that I added faux stitching around the gingerbread “woman” – see the bow in her hair?  ;-) 
Thanks for stopping by today!  :-)

Haunted Hollywood Banner


Hi friends!

For today’s project for our Scrapbook Pal DT, I have created a banner for my son’s Halloween dance.  The theme this year was “Haunted Hollywood”.  The kids, as well as the adults, had a great time.  As the kids were leaving, we could hear them commenting about how fun it was and how they hoped we would do another one.  Coming from a group of about 500 6th thru 8th grade students, I’d call that a SUCCESS!  :-)


This banner was 13-15 feet long. I had no way of hanging it to get good photos… I enlisted the help of my youngest two. As you can see, they were oh-so-enthusiastic about it too….and I shared one of the best photos I had vs those where they were looking at me, squinting because of the sunlight, with the look of “hurry up already!!!” on their faces.  ;-)


Here is a closer view of “Haunted”.


And here is a closer view of “Hollywood”.

I’m not sure if you can tell from the photos, but I added the name, as well as year of birth and year of death of some of our theater arts teacher’s favorite deceased actors and actresses.


Here is a close-up of one of the headstones.
