So I use to be that mom...

you know...the one who never had any fun on and around Halloween.
Yep. You know the one.

But that has been changing...and I think I have Heidi Swapp to blame credit.

The truth is now I just can't help myself with all the festive Halloween-esque goodies she comes out with. Halloween in Lights for sure. That Lightbox, it's just all that. New serif font now available at Michaels, along with that cutie little jack'o lantern icon, became the focus of a little party vignette here at home.

See what I did there with the Bat Garland? Laid bats on the Lightbox. Even used pop dots to give them some stick-to-it-ness to the sides.

The Witch Hat Marquee Love is super adorable pretty much just as it is.

I tied a bow of tulle to the top just to glam it up a bit. But seriously, set this black hat out and it's ready for any party.

What party is not complete without goodie bags. Using ribbon from Michaels as well as Color Magic Doily plus Color Magic Circles to decorate the fronts only added to the festive-ness of the little party.

Heres a little tip: use Marquee Love Glitter Tape in Orange for notched tags and banners whenever you want to dress something up with a little glitter.

One more thing I want to show off are these Muslin Fabric Flags. I wanted a bit more texture to them so I stenciled them with a stencil I cut on my eclips2 machine and then used Black Metallic Texture Paste for a really fun banner. I really like how these turned out and will be doing this again.
