"Whooo Wants Candy?" LO for CropStop

I've never got to enjoy Halloween. .  . maybe becoz it's not celebrated in our community though it's getting popular among other areas of Manila but still we opt not to participate.  We're merely contented on looking at fantastic displays or decorations for the Halloween at malls and selected areas that do participate on the event.

Thus, it's quite difficult for me to turn in a Halloween creation for the challenge at CropStop.  This week's Challenge #42 is "Halloween".  I had to rely on the photos shared by a relative who had migrated to another country that do celebrate the occasion.  I chose the petite photos of my cousin's little daughter on her 1st Halloween in another country. . .

SUPPLIES: Paper: Bo Bunny, Star Paper Corp., Dew Drops: Robin’s Nest, Sticker: Bo Bunny, TOOLS: Paper Shapers: Provo Craft.

CROPSTOP SUPPLIES:  Sunkissed Tear Drops & Mounting Squares  
DESIGN NOTES:  I made use of 6x12 paper for my LO, layered papers underneath my photo & mimicked weaving with my purple art papers underneath the photo also.  The dew drops called "Sunkissed Tear Drops" were added as finishing touches to the LO.

I would like to share with you a CropStop 10% off with no min purchase required discount code: CTCH-2Use the discount code when checking out your puchases.  To shop at CropStop, click here.
