Happy Halloween!!!! 
I love Halloween, one of my most favorite holidays with Christmas being number one! I wanted to get this posted earlier, but phew, it was a lot of work. Only because "I" made it a lot of work, which is usually the problem with anything I But I do have to admit, that I had so much fun making this banner! It's rather large, so I had problems on finding a spot to hang it to get pictures. That was a whole new job in itself lol My husband was still in bed and I'm rather short, so I tried hanging it in a corner of my craft room so that I could snag some pictures, but I wasn't really happy with it, as you can see what I mean. You can't really see it.
So luckily, the old man woke up just in the nick of time to take it into our family room and hang it up on our high wall for me. I used two of the Halloween Printable Sets from  
The Cutting Cafe for this project. 
The thing I love the most about the Banner set is that there's blank banner templates that you could make your own sayings, not just Halloween. I used Seed Bead Wire to hang altered "Charms" from the banner lettering. They were originally poker chips lol appreciation for all the awesome customers that visit The Cutting Cafe, Regina is generously offering a free Stamp Set!!! It's called December Daily 2 and it's FREE until November 6, 2010 -- 11:59PM(PACIFIC TIME) .. Go HERE to get all the details and to download this awesome set!!
