Halloween Crown Swap

When Sarah at My So Called Junky Life announced a crown swap you KNOW I was right on it. I LOVE making crowns. In fact, I think I'll make myself a crown this weekend now that I've completed my crown for the swap. My partner is Samantha, one of the bloggers at Altered Junkies. I can't wait to see what she creates for me! My crown arrived to Samantha earlier this week and I've been dying to share so here we go . . .



I used black poster board (which is how I start all of my paper crowns) and cut out my crown shape.



I cut out grave stones from the Cricut Cartridge October 31st and glittered them with fine Martha Stewart glitter.



The moon graphic is from the ever fabulous Graphics Fairy and the sparkly letters are from Michaels. Do you know that I have an entire DRAWER of chip board glittered letters? Seriously.



I love how it turned out. I think when I make one for myself I'll call it "Scream Queen" what do you think?  Now that the "Wicked" crown is with it's new owner that white pumpkin looks a bit lonely.

I've also been busy at the Examiner and think I've written one of my favorite articles to date! I was able to interview Marlo from Contain Ya Crafts and it was a great experience! She is fun and interesting and really KNOWS what crafters are looking for in their storage needs. Please click HERE to read the interview. I also posted some fabulous Halloween crafts from Jen at Lipstick and Laundry. Check out the article HERE and make sure to stop by to visit her. She makes the most beautiful things from everyday materials! Thank you so much for your support with the Examiner. I'm enjoying finding new inspiration and meeting new people and hope you're enjoying them as well!

cheers ~ R
