Beauty, Halloween Style!

Hello and Happy Tuesday! It is finally Fall here in New England and it is wonderful! The foliage isn't real bright but there are hints of color on a few trees scattered about. I am ready for cozy sweaters and the smell of wood burning in the fireplace. Halloween is also starting to pop up everywhere. Don't you just love it!

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations the challenge is one that is going to be fun. We would like you to create a tag this week. It can be any kind of tag you choose. I was in the Halloween mood so I created this Halloween tag. I just love the DP I used. It was free from Bearly Mine last year, I love the aged look of it. I also thought I would have a little fun and have the bats fly off the tag with the help of acetate strips. All the ladies did a fabulous job this week creating tags to inspire you so be sure to stop by and see what they created for you.
