Happy Halloween from Strawberry Shortcake and Pretty Kitty

Happy Halloween Friends!
This year, Miss AuBrynne decided to be Strawberry Shortcake for Halloween.
I naively figured it would be an easy task to whip that costume together.
But can I tell you how hard it was to find pink with darker pink polka-dot fabric??
Every fabric store I looked in, the people looked at me like I had two heads!!
But, not finding the right fabric has never stopped me...
So, I went to my favorite Heat Transfer vendor, Specialty-Graphics.com and picked up some Metallic Heat Transfer.
And then I made my own fabric!
It turned out fantastic!

I also picked up these perfectly matched pink hotfix crystals to add to the argyle part of the dress-top.

Then I added a rolled hem on my serger with a bulky metallic decorative thread in the upper looper for a nice effect!

Do you know how hard it is to find Electric Pink Mary-Janes?
So, I took the same Metallic Heat Transfer and applied it to her shoes.
It worked PERFECTLY!

The hat was done in the reverse of the skirt so that it would "Pop!"

And I am going as a Pretty Kitty this Halloween.
I used black gel liner in strategic spots, pink blush, pink eye shadow on my new nose and matching pink bottom lip and a little contouring and highlights in just the right spots completes the makeup.
Some ears on a stretchy invisible headband, a tail and Voila!
Pretty Kitty.

And we took a spooky Halloween Photo all together in front of the Halloween Vignette!
It was a very fun party!

Making It With Allie - My Spooky Relatives

Welcome friends!
I am glad to have you all come to party again this week!
I had EVERY intention of sharing Miss AuBrynne's Halloween costume this week.
However, the fates are conspiring against me.
So, I guess you all will have to check back on Halloween to see the fun reveal!

I will share with you some of my Spooky Relatives.
I have a nice picture-wall set up for Halloween that includes spooky silhouettes.
Here is the whole vignette:

I would love to leave this little wall up all year round.
But a certain little person has already told me the Spooky Family needs to be put away after Halloween so the Santa Family can be put up... I love kids!

Anyways, here are a few tidbits on the items I made to include here.
So, I had been looking for an antique-y looking birdcage for some time.  Well, real old ones are expensive!
So, we were running errands a couple of weeks ago and noticed the new Ross was having their grand opening, so we took a stroll through.  And would you believe they had my birdcage?!
All I had to do was spray it black and add my crows~

And this silhouette of my Spooky Aunt might be my favorite part!
I cut her out with my Silhouette cutter in this ABSOLUTELY Gorgeous Sparkling Iridescent Champagne Vinyl from my favorite place - Specialty-Graphics.
If you have not heard of them, check them out! They have the most amazing fun stuff!

This orange charger got a good dose of the sparkle vinyl treatment too!
Until I find the right chandy for this place, this is what I will have...

So, my other favorite item is the Skull-Crow-Black-Snow Globe!
I found it at Ross too! and I could not believe the clearance sticker on this guy!
And I found the candelabra (in the back) at Goodwill for $1!
A little black spray  paint and it's perfect!
So, how are you all decorating for Halloween?
I do hope you will share in the party!
