October KitCat Club!


*WHEW* It's been a long day and I was worried that I wasn't going to get this posted! And I only have one photo because my camera is not cooperating. grrrrrr . . . . .


The beautiful Lorie was October's KitCat Club hostess, and she sent us the most frightfully fun altering project -- a wooden picture frame! Along with the frame, she sent cute Peachy Keen images, double-sided DPs, ribbon, glittery buttons, and even a nail file & a glue stick!


I ended up sponging the DPs with Ranger Tea Dye to distress them a bit, and after attaching them to the frame, I sanded the edges and sponged the bare wood with the same distress ink.


Mr. Star looked so frightened! In fact, he's so frightened that he is about to fall on Mr. Candy Corn! LOL!! I was thinking about what would make me freak out like that, and there's pretty much only one thing - a spider! YUK!!! I found the web and spider buttons in my stash and attached them with Crystal Effects. I used the ribbon to make a "flower" to highlight the sentiment, and added some of my own green buttons to the glittery ones.


Lorie thanks so much for challenging us with this project! It was so much fun to make!!

Be sure to check out the *amazing* creations by the other KitKat gals:

Oooo, I can't wait to find out what November's KitCat project will be! Until then,


Happy Creating!
Susan

What fun! I love what you did with Lorie's kit, Susan!!! Your frame is so much fun. I love how you added the spider idea! And WOW!!! The way you used the ribbon is incredible, as is the way you layered green buttons on top of the orange ones! I'm in awe of the unique things you have done in creating this fantastic project!

This is darling, Susan! I love how you added the ribbon, it almost looks like a little spider web in itself - nicely done! This is so adorable, you really did a terrific job with all the little touches (buttons, ribbon, your awesome coloring!) Well done, girl!

I'm totally on board with the ribbon flower too! That's so cute and creative!! The little spider web button was an adorable touch, too, and your coloris is beautiful. I'm glad you had fun with the kit, and I'm looking forward to Michelle's project for next month. I'm completely on board with the spider thing, too! I NO likey spiders! Great job, Susan!!
