Color Me Creative Guest Designer!!

Hi everyone!  I am super excited about this post.  I have been invited to be a Guest Designer over at Suzanne Dean’s Color Me Creative part of the world.  What an honor it is to have one of my projects posted along with the magnificent creations from the fabulous design team.  Did I mention that I was excited?  thrilled?  honored?  excited?  on cloud nine?

Ok… back to the challenge.  Color Me Creative is having a “Halloween theme or colors” challenge.  I love Halloween and the beautiful colors that accompany the Fall season so this is the perfect time to open the windows, put on some good ‘ole 70’s music, and pull out my browns, oranges, purples, greens, and cream colors.  

For this project, I have created a double slider card.   I learned this technique about 2 years ago while attending a class at one of the local craft stores here in Fayetteville.  There are several videos/tutorials on how to make them and I just adjusted mine to fit my images.








Below you will find the ingredients to my Halloween concoction.
