Boo Kitty!

I say this every year at this time, but I'm a Halloween fanatic!
I've always, always loved Halloween, but it seems that the older I get the
more that I love it.  The papercrafting industry comes up with the cutest 
Halloween themes year-after-year and that definitely keeps my interest ginning :)
The "Frankie & Friends" Collection by 
SIMPLE STORIES
is a mix of fun colors, whimsical patterns and adorable characters...
look at Frankie...isn't he a doll?!?!?

For my project this month I really wanted to use the collection in a fun way, so
I headed to Pinterest for some ideas.  I had this cat's head treat holder pinned
 

And here is my take on it using patterned paper & embellishments from the
"Frankie & Friends" Collection:

There are sooo many fun ways that you can dress up the face....
cute & funny or very minimalistic with just eyes and a nose :)
And if you have an extra-special trick-or-treater (or two) on your list,
think of whipping up one of these and filling with all sorts of homemade/bought treats.

The cat that I've made uses an entire sheet of 12X12 (modified) paper, but 
you can make smaller versions and leave off the hanger.

See more photos and how I put it together on today's blog post at 

Happy weekend!
