Happy First Birthday, Polka Dotted Bliss!! {a blog hop}

Today, I am helping my scrappy friend Kimberly celebrate the 1-year anniversary of her Etsy Shop, Polka Dotted Bliss. She has had a spookalicious line-up of talented girls sharing polka-dot Halloween creations all week long on her blog! AND, she's giving away some blog candy each and every day this week. Hope you've stopped by the blogs every day this week, caught some inspiration and entered the giveaways!

I'm sure you've figured out by now the theme is Halloween!  Most of you know that I haven't really created anything new in ...well, a REALLY, really long time.  I'm so grateful to Kimberly for inviting me to participate in the Blog Hop Anniversary Party and giving me the impetus I needed to get my rear in gear! Of course, since it's been so long, I decided to take baby steps.  I used the Webster's Pages Once Upon A Halloween collection to make these ACEOs.  I love how these tiny pieces can pack a punch. And you all know how I loathe to throw out even the tiniest scrap of anything.  ACEOs and gift tags are perfect for using up those tiny bits!  A spooky series of 3 ... enjoy!

3 in the Series

1st - A Haunting We Go

I hope you've enjoyed the projects I've shared!  I'm excited to get back to what I love - hopefully sooner than later :)  Don't forget to enter today's giveaway {details below}!
