SOUS: DIE CUT CHALLENGE - TRICK OR TREAT

Happy Halloween Folks!!! 

Welcome to today's die cut challenge at SOUS - 'Trick or Treat'. Duh? Right?!!

Have I told you lately how much I love mice and bears? I especially love them at Scrapping Bug Designs. Nearly all of this cute Halloween home decor is made up of die cuts!!!

I really can't tell you how much I loved putting it together. I made the mice and the lone cat on different days but after that was done I worked on the whole project together in one morning. I chose Doodlebug Designs "Ghouls and Goodies" patterned paper because I felt like this needed to be bright and cheerful to go with the mice.

Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget to stop by SOUS and see what other fabulous projects our design team came up with for you today.


I purchased the frame from Hobby Lobby. It is originally set for a project to be
horizontal, but I cheated just a bit!

Although you can't see it, I did use Frosted Lace Stickles on the title.

I came up with names for my mice using a Thesaurus. In the case of 'Snatch',
I began my search with the word "picking". My son thought I should have
used real names, like his and Daddy's. He wanted to be the mouse
reading "a little something".

The bubbles in the cauldron are actually pearls!
I thought that was brilliant on my part.
