Best Witches

Hi there! How was your weekend? Mine was good - we fit in a little kayaking, some hockey, and a bit of creating and studio reorganization (which is almost just as fun as creating!)

I decided that in a last-ditch effort to use my favorite Halloween things and count down to the big day, that I would spend the rest of this week sharing Halloween projects. Today's card is a fun, collagey mix of different elements.

See the paper rosette? It was made with the Tim Holtz Alterations Paper Rosette die. This was so super simple and fun to make that I guarantee you'll be seeing more of them!

Love all the bits and pieces on this!

One more thing I'd like to share before I go is a photography project that my husband started. You may have heard of it or seen it before, but it is called TTV (through the viewfinder) photography. I'll direct you to the post on his blog about it, but look at this photo he took of our fireplace.

Oh, it just makes my vintage-loving heart swoon.  I cannot wait to take Christmastime photos using this technique.  Could you imagine how our Wanda's Pantry photoshoot would have looked?  I may need to recreate a bit to try it out! So fun!

Have a great day!
