My 2011 Halloween Poster For My Door


Well, our sunshine is still out today in this part of WI but it is very cold! It is only 47 this morning and the high today is to be 58 - a far cry from the 80's we had been enjoying! Yesterday we had rain and it was cold and wet but today it is the perfect Fall day - beautiful sunshine, leaves still colorful but falling everywhere and a nip in the air. It makes me think of Halloween weather for the first time this year.

And this is my Halloween 2011 poster for the door of my apartment. Last year I made my poster featuring the Owl Forest and added a little owl trick or treater every day all month long but this year I loved Mo Manning's image "Witches Trick" so much I had to make my poster centered around her! Mo's "Tall Houses" were perfect for the setting for this scenerio and I used two of them as background in this scene. I once again used the leaves and vines from the image "Katie's Love Swing" from Make It Crafty to create the grasses and bushes around the houses.

The two trick or treaters are Mo's "Mummy" - who isn't quite sure what to make of this old woman - even if she is holding a large gingerbread man cookie! His big brother, who just leaving the house they were just at, is from Mo's "Twick or Tweet" and he is also sizing up the situation - the old woman's house does look a bit creepy. The witch's cat lying on the front stairs is Mo's "Cheshire Cat' and looking out of the window upstairs is the little cat from Mo's "Alli Wants In. The moon is from her Wynken, Blynken and Nod" - what a wonderful combination of images these made for my poster!

Thanks for stopping by today! Wishing you sunshine!
