A Little Haunting in March

I know it's March, but when the inspiration strikes you gotta go with it, so...........Halloween it is. It all started with an ATC swap I was in a few years ago, yes, I said years. It took awhile to get them all back, but they were some real gems and I really wanted to showcase them. Enter this little house I found at the Goodwill, also a couple of years ago. And, of course, I swear I took a picture of the thing when I got it, but now I can't find it, so you'll have to picture what it looked like before......multicolored pastel paints and covered with bumblebees.

I started by covering the surfaces with different Halloween papers, then distressed and swiped some white paint around.  Then placed the ATC's where I wanted them.

Next, I went through my stash, and my friend, Paula's stash, of Halloween embellishments. I created the little scene inside the doors with stickers, and other Halloween embellishments. The skeleton was part of a light set that I took apart.

I crackle painted some TH picket fence diecuts for the sides and some really cool dragon paper for the back and it's all ready for Halloween.......just a few months early.

The tree is a Jolee's diecut cut in half with some extra crows and a witch and moon sticker to finish it off.
