Halloween Spooktacular Blog Hop

Welcome to the annual Halloween Spooktacular Banner Hop for Special Needs Children!
Check out the hop from the beginning at Ellen Cardmonkey's Blog and learn all about the wonderful cause behind this spooktacular blog hop. 
 Here is side number one.
I made my banner two sided as always :) My banner I has Cricut cut outs on one side. I used Simply Charmed for the ghosts and Create a Critter for the pumpkins but at 3 inches. I used different Peachy Keen faces on each of them.

The other side has some of my favorite digi stamp company's images. 

The Frankenstein is Stamping Boutique. I colored him with Copics and added Stickles to the stars around him. You can find him here.
 The pumpkin babies are Bugaboo. I was very excited they made this their freebie last week. I really wanted them when I saw them.
The ghosts are from Meljen's designs. You saw a lot of her great images on Ellen's banner too.  
 I used ribbon to connect the pieces and added some ribbon to give it that little extra detail. 
Make sure to head over to Nancie's blog and check out the rest of the awesome banners. 
Here is the lineup in case you get lost...

Jamie, What an adorable banner and the thought of making two sided is fantastic! I love the Peachy Keen faces. They have so much personality. I love the images on the other side side of your banner. Thank you for the Bugaboo idea. I will visit often. You did a great job coloring all of your images. I am sure that a child will be very delighted having this banner hanging in hes/her room. tfs Tami

Simply GORGEOUS banner, Jamie, well done!! I like too that your banner is two-sided (as usual) so that it can be hung in the doorway of a child's bedroom, and characters can be seen coming and going. VERY nice!!

Thank you again for participating in my banner hops benefiting the medically-fragile children at Pediatric Specialty Care. You are a dear!

Very fondly,
Ellen ♥ CardMonkey

Jamie: Cute banner with lots of cute paper! The Peachy Keen stamps really make the cute cut-outs look a lot cuter...I think I need some more stamps. The digi's are adorable too. I haven't conquered double-side banners yet; but I know the patients really like them.

We're glad to be a part of the hop with you!

Fabulous banner!
I am so touched by this hop. My eldest child was special needs and he spent too much of his precious life in the hospital. this banner will not only cheer the child, but make the family feel supported at a difficult time. God bless you!

Love the banner and impressed that you took the time to color those digistamps in. They bring the whole things together perfectly.
