A Halloween Banner

Good Morning All. Well my husband thinks I've finally gone over the edge. You see I never really put up decorations for Halloween, let alone in September, but I just couldn't help myself. And Here is why.
A couple of weeks ago while at Michaels I picked up this nifty Halloween banner by Recollections. ( and the MS, mouse silhouettes ) Well I just had to dress up the banner a little bit. I used a bunch of Bugaboo images to make this even more fun. You can find all the images over in the Bugaboo Store.
It is hard to see the details in this shot but I have more.
 A little bit closer view
So starting from the center, here are the detail photos.
I just had to use Stella for the centerpiece.

 You can find this image Here.
 I used shimmering watercolors to paint the moon.
 All of these images can be found in the Singles Section of the Bugaboo Store under Babies and Kids.
Skelekinz, Ava and Deacon and Bugaboo Brats. The Ghosts and Cats can be found Here.  If you Double click on each image you can see it bigger if you want more detail.
 Here is a close up of the Bugaboo Images.  I did all the pieces this way, broken up in threes.

Isn't this Fun? It only took about 4 days to color all the images and put it all together and so worth it. I have a couple more projects I have to finish up and I will post those over the weekend.  I'm off to the dollar store to pick up more decorations for the house this morning.
I will be entering this in the following Challenges this week:
