So, this week's Throwback Thursday Challenge at Emma's blog was called "Frame It". We were supposed to create a project that we "framed" somehow and we were also supposed to use Paper Doll Dress Up. This came out totally different than I originally planned. Originally, I wanted to make a pumpkin frame, but I didn't like how it came out. It just looked weird to me. So, I put it aside and didn't touch it again for the rest of the week because nothing was coming to me. I also had to get my kids back to school, watch a baby from church, organize some dinners for the Meals Ministry at church, AND make some birthday invitations for a friend's daughter. They came out soooo cute and I will post them in the next couple of days. Anyway, I started this tonight and think it came out pretty cute. I would have liked to have spent more time on it, but today I had to finish the invitations and this evening we had a going away dinner for my friend, Amber, that is moving away to Texas next week.

Paper Doll Dress Up
George and Basic Shapes
Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Punch
Martha Stewart Tear Drop Hand Punch
Michael's Dollar Stamp
I cut out the ghosts and spider from Paper Doll Dress Up. I hid their faces on my Gypsy and hand drew the little faces with a Martha Stewart fine tip marker. I created the "window frame" on my Gypsy by using squares from George and Basic Shapes. I did one solid square for the background. I made two of the windows with the panes cut out and glued them together. I cut the bottoms off of the ghosts and glued them to the window frame. I pop dotted the frame to the solid square. I punched the tear drops and drew eye balls on them and put them in the window as well. I pop dotted the spider coming down from the window and drew the web with marker. I added the drippy goo border to the top of my card. The stamp is one of those dollar ones from Michael's and I really love it. I wish it didn't have the pumpkins on it, though. I may try to take those off another day.....I think it's ok for a quick card. I usually like to be WAY more detailed, but today was a crazy day around here, so I had to make it quick!
