Shopping our Stash #73 - Trick or Treat!

It's October, and you know what that means! TRICK OR TREAT! This week at Shopping our Stash we're DARING you to celebrate with your stash by creating something 
Halloweeny or spooky, OR
using a candy, food, dessert theme
I remembered running across a Halloween graphic that I printed out last year, sometime during the summer. Vividly. Not so vividly that I knew WHERE the darn thing was, but vividly enough that I wasn't going to stop looking for it and use something else. 

Perseverance paid off, though. Found it! And made this:
Supplies: Halloween graphic from the Graphics Fairy;
brads from Making Memories;
paper from Reminisce
It was exceedingly easy to shop only my stash this go-round, because I didn't buy any new Halloween supplies this year. Not even at the dollar store. I can't quite believe it myself.

This challenge will be open until next Monday, October 22. Don't forget to see what the rest of the SOS team has been up to!

And now I'm off to dig out my Christmas supplies - if I'm not back in half an hour, the basement defeated me ;) lol!

oooooooh! what a gorgeous vintage halloween graphic! DEFINITELY worth the perserverance, tho i can so totally relate to that paragraph of yours... been there, done that! (metaphorically, i mean; i've not actually spent anytime searching your basement tho the thought of it being stocked with xmas goodies is kind making me tempted, lol!)

You put it in a VERY safe place. I feel your pain. I can SEE something, just can't FIND it. ;/
