12 Kits of Occasions October '17: Boo to You!

Happy Halloween Greetings! It's the day before the spooking begins, and
12 Kits of Occasions is bringing you October's post today. 
This month I'm the hostess, and I had such a good time putting together a not too frightful 
kit for all my teammies.

Thanks to Lindsey, our resident genius when it comes to photographing a bit of
everything included in the kit. Mwah! 

No time to waste, hope your cuppa is handy, I have a ton to show you!

Let's start with some brew from Frantic Stamper to kick things off.
By the way, if anything catches your eye, there's a list of products used in the kit
on the 12 Kits blog.

It truly is 'All About the Candy'

Not too long ago Marybeth used this boxcard die from Reverse Confetti on one of her projects.
Had to have it, and loved adding some of the designer papers to decorate it. The haunted town
die cut was included in the kit.

Funny story, my teenage granddaughter is afraid of spiders, which always seem to show up in our 
house when she's visiting. Guess who got this card for Halloween? 'Grandma, you're so mean!'

You have to have a shaker in the lineup. The die's from Memory Box.

Kept this card simple to showcase this trio from Impression Obsession.

Does anyone really eat candy corn? But it's like the symbol of Halloween!

I think I used this stamp and die set from Poppystamps more than any other this season. 
They are just so darn cute!

Still with me? My last (I promise!) card uses puff paint (Tsukineko Neon Amplify) 
to give my pumpkins some dimension. 
And that's it for this hostess. Hope you enjoyed it. And hope you visit each and every 
teammie and leave some love on their blogs.
I have a prize to give one winner of our drawing, so don't forget to comment!

Hugs, and Happy Halloween!
