HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

The Challenge:   Working with your assigned letter create a panel for a Halloween banner that will read TRICK OR TREAT.  Bring material to make another panel with the word OR. 

Participants:  Dawn, Monique, Lupine, Christine, Caryl, Marcia, Cari, Barry, Jerome and Danielle.

RESULTS....  (the photo was pieced together from three separate ones so the panels don't appear to be the same size, but they are.  Double click to see it larger.)

And now for a view of each panel and the name of the artist.

What a fabulous banner we brought home. Having a banner that everyone contributed to will always remind us of the friendships we have found in the Inky Fingers and the  fun times we share.

GREAT WORK EVERYONE AND A WARM " WELCOME"
TO JEROME AND DANIELLE.

Alina Name Frame

Tonight I made a name frame for my friend Fred's daughter Alina, who will be turning 1 year old next Saturday.

In the past we used a different alphabet to make our name frames, something more shabby and vintage-looking. Because this was for a baby, Caryl loaned me this Stampin' Up! alphabet that she saved from the "sell" pile - and thank goodness, because it's whimsical and perfect for a little girl's name.

Fred told me that Alina's room is purple and white so I knew what the color theme would be. I checked out the button section of Joann's and found the little flowers on the letters as well as the purple lady bugs. The ribbon with fabric flowers was a great find because it fit the color scheme and filled in the lower section of the frame. Thanks to Caryl for reminding me of the bird punch, which ended up perfect to fill the upper left corner. The shadow-box frame was $10 at Joann's, so the total cost of the name frame is under $20 - not bad for a birthday gift!
