Anything But A Card at Bugaboo

On Mondays over at Bugaboo it is Anything But a Card Monday so I just wanted to remind you to stop by the Bugaboo Challenge Blog every Monday to be inspired.
So along those lines...Last week I made this cool Haunted House using a SVG File, Elmhurst Hollow, from SVG Cuts and decorated it with Jodie's cute Bugaboo Brats and Goofy Ghosts for the Anything But A Card Challenge.
 Well when I was looking through all my Holiday Bugaboo Images I came across this wonderful Haunted House Image and thought Hey! what a great addition to the Neighborhood. So I enlarged the image to a size that matched the previous house and set to work.
 Each section of the house is a front and back with a strip of 1&1/2" paper that has each edge turned under 1/4" to put them together. I cut out the windows and added orange mulberry paper and there is an opening in the back of each piece for a light to fit in. Then I glued all the pieces together. The little sucker really glows in the dark.
 I added the wonderful goofy ghosts again and then used the Halloween Skelekinz to occupy the scene. the spooky tree needs some owls still and maybe some bats.
 The thing about this halloween table is that it is a constant work in progress and so much fun.
 For my pumpkin Girlz I use pumpkins  from the pumpkin patch (or grocery store) and decorate them with hats and great big printed eyes and lips and hair and whatever looks good. They last forever it seems.
Check out those eyes. Now she needs a mouth and the little gal next to her needs a whole face.
 Most of the not paper decorations come from the dollar store.
 This pumpkin needs a whole face and I will be working on that today .
Well I hope you have enjoyed the House tour and I really hope you come back soon to check out what is new. I have a link now on the upper right column that you can sign up to be notified when I make a new post. All ways fun stuff being added.
Hope you all have a great day.
