Harvest/Halloween Blog Hop with The Robin's Nest Design team

Welcome all! Halloween is my absolute FAVORITE holiday!

You should have come here from Terri Sproul's Blog, but if you get lost you can start at the beginning at the Robin's Nest Blog Chattering Robins, there is a complete list of blog hop participants at the bottom of this post.

THERE IS LOTS OF BLOG CANDY! Each blog will be giving away a $15 prize to shop at The Robin's Nest Store in addition to ONE GRAND PRIZE of a $50 Shopping Spree at the Robin's Nest Store! To enter the giveaway, you must:
1. Become a follower of all 11 participating blogs

Winners will be announced on the Chattering Robins Blog.

Robin's Nest Supplies:
Glitter Black and White border swirl paper
Green Stencil on linen paper
Halloween Glitter Swirl Card stock
Gold Glitter letters
Brown on Brown Fleur-de-li card stock

Other Supplies:
The Best Glue Ever! -ScraPerfect
Perfect Cleaning Cloth -ScraPerfect
Butterscotch color wash -Ranger
Memory Mist Orange Juice -Stewart Superior
Gold fine art glitter
Ek Success corner punch
Black ink
Emaginations pine cone punch
sewing machine / red thread
fabric leaves, black card stock, green Sharpie marker

How to:
1. Spray the background paper with blotches of color wash and Memory Mist, let dry
2. Cut 1/4" strips of the Halloween Glitter Swirl Card stock, fold the strips and glue lightly to background along bottom and right border. Sew random waves of red through out and over them.
3. Crop and matte photos with Green Stencil on linen paper, ink the edges with black ink and place onto background paper.
4. Arrange title stickers onto black card stock and cut to size. Highlight letters with green Sharpie to cover any white areas. Cut ends into a "V" and use decorative corner punch. Glue into place and sew a straight line on inner edge.
5. Trace flourish border in random areas with The Best Glue Ever! Apply glitter, dump off excess, apply The Best Glue Ever to the area where your leaves will be placed and let dry. (glue remains tacky and will not soak through fabric leaves and flowers but adheres nicely) Adhere the leaves when dry. Use the Perfect Cleaning Cloth to remove static and excess glitter sticking outside the glue lines.
6. Punch pine cones from Brown on Brown Fleur-de-li card stock, and glue on top of fabric leaves.
