31DOH - Day 1 (ok ok I'm late hehe)

Well hellooooo - yep, it's that time of year again...the nights draw in and the crisp Autumn air fills our lungs,, the smell of bonfires, acorns and falling leaves. I adore this time of year, and being of the more ancient traditional bent, I have always celebrated Samhain (or Halloween if you like). So when I found out about the 8th 31 Days of Halloween, I really couldn't pass up the chance to join in. Now you may be wondeering where I was last year - well I'm a relative newbie to the world of blogland and it's the first year I'd heard about it. I'm so excited to be a part of this fab festivity!

So without further ado - my first project for 1st October is a pocket letter I made using some of my favourite papers for the spooky season. I couldn't resist adding some embellishments including Mr Batty and some pops of orange. A friend gave me some super cute die cuts of the witches washing line - it's so adorable and the die is on my wish list.


I've made litereally dozens of pocket letters and it's given me immense joy over the past oooh almost 2 years to swap with so many creative and talented people. I don't do as many as I used to though, but still love creating ATCs - more on this a bit later.

My second post for 2nd day will be up a little later (when I've finished the project - come back later please!!!).

Thanks for stopping by.
