This is Halloween!

Good Morning! And welcome to 12 Kits' Halloween post!
Her Royal Highness, (my name for her!) Jeanne Jackna is our 
hostess this month.
Jeanne's blog, 'A Kept Life' is a gallery treasure chest, 
and you NEED drop by, at least once a week,
to keep up with all her crown jewels. 
She IS the most prolific, talented paper artist I know! 
Her kit this month, raised the bar so high, well, you'll see in a moment.
Now I hope you're settled in and comfy, 'cuz there's a lot to show.
13, that's right, 13! (Isn't that a Halloween number?)
And they practically did themselves!

I lead with this spooky die cut, only because when I asked my DH, to pick
his fav, he went right to the haunted house. Sometimes they have an eye
for what stands out, sometimes... Ha!

Die cuts, and papers, and spiders, OH MY!

3 preciously plump pumpkins

1 raven, a whole slew of bats

I adore these 3 silhouette children!
This card goes to my daughter who gave us,
Ana, Nate and Noelle, 3 of the 11 blessings in our lives!

All the rest are fun tags, ready to add to a special treat!

The above 2 feature Kay Miller's new stamp set, Spooky Smiles.
I'm happy to say, this is one set I have, and plan to
make many more tags like this for give-away treats!

Hold on, there's more!

This pair of ghosties are mounted on an action wobble.
Can't wait to give this to my 2 year old grandson.

This peeking kitten just needed a stitched heart!

2 glittery glamorous Maskerade masks

And finally, the 13th!

If you stuck with me this far, let me just say, don't forget to visit the other
members of the 12 Kits group. We have 3 guests to visit too! 
They're all sure to WOW!

A great big thank you to Jeanne for a most awesome Halloween kit!
