Halloween Preview

Have you ever heard the saying, "One person's trash is another person's treasure... "? Well, it is very true! Last weekend I went to a "Garage Sale" at one of my favorite local scrapbook stores, Collective Journey. My niece, Jeanine, accompanied me in the adventure! Between the two of us, we found some great deals! The price range of all the new found treasures were between .50 and $10.00. Nothing was over that price. Most items were $2 & $3! Awesome finds... buttons, prima flowers, retired SU stamps, Tim Holtz grungeboard, chipboard, containers (which were perfect for the buttons!), vintage style stamps, and QuicKutz dies! Anyhow, all these great finds inspired me to create a halloween banner, I used some of the buttons which were orange, black and purple.
The paper I used for the letters is actually Stampin' Up! DSP 115677 Cast-A-Spell. I used my Cricut to cut the letters (Alphalicious Cart). I used canvas as the base for the pennant. I will be doing a class on banner making so if anyone is interested, let me know!
