Trick or Sweet Blog Hop


Hi there and welcome to your next stop on Taylored Expressions' October Blog Hop!!! As you know, the theme for this hop is "Trick or Sweet" (CUTE, right?!?!) Since Halloween is right around the corner, I was REALLY in the mood to make a Halloween-themed card! The problem is...I don't happen to own any TE Halloween images (yet). EEEK! Will definitely have to remedy that situation at some point! Hmmmm...so I decided to get a little creative with the "Make a Wish" set to see if I could make something festive out of images that aren't typically used for Halloween. Here's what I came up with:


I used the banner, balloon strings, and balloons from "Make A Wish" to create this fun little party scene!!! The face is from DeNami Design. And the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye, Papertrey Ink, and Lily Bee Design.


What do you think??? It didn't turn out exactly the way I envisioned it, but not too shabby *wink*!

Thanks for hopping along!!

Next stop: Corinna's BEAUTIFUL blog!
