Spooky Banner

Last night, instead of doing my laundry, I made a Halloween Banner.  Let me tell you, it was well worth it!  This was so much fun to make.  I used several items from the new Holiday catalog to make this banner. What do you think?


If you live in the Mentor, OH area, I have a Halloween Banner Class scheduled on Friday, September 19th.  Click the Events tab at the top to view my class schedule of classes.
