The Creative Paper Trade ~ Miss Boo!

Good morning and a happy Wednesday! Are you up for a challenge today? How about joining in the fun and trying your hand at our Paper Nudge challenge at The Creative Paper Trade. This time we have a sketch for you and I have a sweet little Halloween card to hopefully inspire and help nudge you in the right direction. Check out Miss Boo!


I pulled out my Mischievous paper pack from MME and went to work. My little ghost is an acrylic one I picked up a couple of years ago. I coated one side of her with glue and added the starry paper then trimmed it up. A small piece of black paper was added for the eyes, then glittered for a touch of ghostly sparkle! PTI limitless layers dies provided the background for this fun Halloween digi that I downsized and punched out. The fun spider web strips are Washi tape. Miss Boo is dressed up with a bow atop her head with a tiny star brad and a fun little fabric pennant from the shop. 


I was in awe of our street last night and how pretty it looked. I took Max for a walk as the sun was setting. White Ash lines either side of our street. They're all around twenty feet tall maybe a bit more and rounded in shape. They are the prettiest shade of rusty red right now with some of the green still mixed deep within. The light at that time of evening made them glow so beautifully! Ahhh Autumn, love it!! Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world. I hope you'll be back! ~Lisa

Love your Halloween card, Ms Boo is so so cute! That is when the changing of the leaves is perfect, still green but with lots of colour.
