Day 15 - 31 Days of Halloween - Team Delicious Doodles

Happy Tuesday, my lovely friends, and hope your day is wonderful.   Today I am sharing my project for Team Delicious Doodles, in the Smudged and Smeared, 31 days of Halloween (day 15).


I see many Notebooks around blogland, and at a recent visit to Ikea, I bought some of these Wire Bound, Kraft (plain paper) notebooks..  I love Kitty Witch, and decided to make a "Spells and Potions" book, or in our language (my thoughts and dreams). LOL,,also hoping that I can make a couple of Journal Pages..cos I love the ones that I see, and want to try one out...the embellishments, are earrings, that I bought for "cheap as chips" in a sale.  The charms, paper and spiders webbing, are from my stash.  Now at Delicious Doodles, I work alongside some fabulously talented girls, who love the Darker side...and try as I might, I am not so good at it, but will keep trying, I have Grunged the imaged and papers, but still think, I have made a Kinda cute, project...thoughts would be welcome here.

f you are taking part in the hop, you should have arrived here from Leslie Raye, the next stop after me is Roni at Ink Stains.  If you are lost head over the the beginning Terra at Smeared and Smudged.  (Terra will also have the winners for yesterday's hop, also. Enjoy and there are prizes along the way.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:-

Hi there, Avril - you know I love this! I've been waiting for your Tuesday post - I just knew it would have a cat LOL. What a great idea to do a journal - I love all the embellishments too! Can't believe some of those are earrings!

I meant to say something about your new blog header - Crafting in the Kitchen - I was wondering if you'd change it after you moved into the kitchen. I think it's great - and I'm glad the new location is working out for you.

Hoping today is a great day for you, Avril.

Take care,
Kitty
