Halloween Blog Hop with My Creative Time ~ Day #1

Welcome to My Creative Time  Halloween 2 Day Blog Hop!! This is day #1. Not only are you going to see some amazing creations but Emma is having a SALE ~ yes I said sale!! Yeah! You should have arrived from the very talented Katie's blog. I am last up for today but just in case you just stumbled on over you may want to start from the beginning over at Emma's blog. Click here. I promise to make this short and sweet for you all today!

For my project I wanted to alter my topiary tree I have had since the beginning of this year! My intentions was to make something for my sisters bedroom but that never happened! Sorry Nicolle! So after knocking off some spider webs (seriously it was already for Halloween) I decided to spray paint it! I used some Krylon spray paint (Thanks Shar) I got at Micheal's! Originally this topiary tree was green but I wanted to make it Halloweenish so I painted it black! While waiting for the paint to dry ~ hehehe we all know that almost drove me nuts ~ I just started die cutting Emma's "Rolled Flower Dies" .  I only used the one style but either one would have worked ~ your choice. I did this seriously in about 20 minutes tops! Once the tree is dry ~ I just hot glued the flowers on the tree. Easy right! My paper is from Paper Trey Ink. I then decided I wanted to use the "Just Tag Stamp & Dies" and  "Just For You" stamp set. I just LOVE this Halloween sentiment! I decided to heat emboss it to give it a little shine too! Added some seam ribbon to the tag, buttons to my little pot and a big ole bow! That's it for me! Quick, simple and not over the top hard at all!
