My Other Creations: Monster Party

LOVE this time of year and especially the fun that comes with Halloween.  The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog issued a fabulous theme this week: The Monster Mash!  Since I am a fan of cute Halloween rather than gory scary Halloween, I made a hip and happenin' monster party!

I have never been the haunted house/scary movie type of gal.  In fact, when my high school friends would drag me to haunted houses, I made a beeline to the "Pumpkin Patch" area and sat coloring with the 5-year-olds until my friends were ready to go.  And so I decided to make a cute monster dwelling for my project-- one that I wouldn't mind walking through!

I made the house using the new Tim Holtz Village Dwelling die.  I modified the awning a bit and I lined the inside with yellow paper so it would look like it was glowing light from the inside.  The wood-grain paper is from Simple Stories' Pumpkin Spice collection.  I added polka dots to the roof, a banner, a monster (Paper Smooches Ghoulfriends stamp), and a pumpkin, bat and ghost from My Favorite Things' Frightfully Fun Halloween stamp set.  I used some awesome Doodlebug washi tape for my monster's hat.

If you want to make your own monster mansion, here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
