A Couple of Halloween Projects...

While in Asda on Friday evening I stocked up on some of their 10p notepads. After a recent Stampin' Up evening with Michelle, I was inspired to decorate some, and with Halloween almost upon us, I made these for my Niece & Nephew (Hannah & James). They really are so simple, but my Sister couldn't believe they were just 10p notebooks. So I have covered them with Halloween papers by Junkitz (they are last years, possibly even from 2006...LOL). The images are both by hAnglar & stAnglar and have been coloured with ProMarkers using the following colours...
Ivory/Blush(Skin)
Black/Amethyst/Pumpkin (Witch Costume)
Cocoa (Hair)
Cinnamon/Cocoa (Broom)
Amethyst/Ice Grey 1/2/& 3 (Vampire Costume)
Cocoa/Umber (Hair)
I have added some diecut stickers to the covers and also some American Craft & Bo Bunny ribbons. The kids were so pleased with them that they took them to the restaurant and were writing spooky poems and story ideas.

I still have plenty left (make that 28...LOL) but have plans for some for Christmas for Georgia's school friends.
