just in time for Halloween!

Hey there!  I know I've told you guys I had a crazy week this week.  Well, I've been meaning to make a banner for Halloween this year and I know I had plenty of time to do it, too.  But here it is, the Friday before the big spook day... and I'm clearly running out of time.  The determined girl that I am, I created this quick and easy banner at lunch today.  Luckily, 3 letters can be put together fairly quickly ;)  Here's a quick run down of how I "blinged out" my BOO:
I used Mod Podge and applied it with a sponge brush to my letters.  Then I sprinkled the chunky glitter over the letters and let the adhesive dry.  Ta-da!  So easy!  As for the Pumpkin Pie background frames, I used the Top Note die and ran that through the Big Shot 2 times - the first time to get the basic Top Note shape, then turned the cardstock 90 degrees and centered it on the die and ran it through the Big Shot again.  I do love this unique squar-ish marquee shape!  I added texture by using the spiderweb embossing folder.  Super easy peasy and now I have a banner for Halloween!  Whew! Here's one last look:
Have a good one!  Thanks for popping in!
